SilverFire® Does It Again!

m_DSCN3022

SilverFire’s new ‘Scout’ is arguably the best compact gasifier stove!

It doesn’t matter if you’re into backpacking, hunting or prepping, SilverFire’s new compact ‘Scout’ camp stove deserves a close look. I have to say that Todd (the brains at SilverFire) has a winner with this cool little stove that encompasses many of the features of larger stoves. In fact, the Scout is so awesome, that the copy-cats are already hard at work trying to flood the market with cheaply made look-alikes that aren’t even close to the quality and functionality of a genuine ‘Scout’!

 

First off: The Scout is small enough to fit into any Prepper ‘go-bag’ (bug-out bag), as well as easily fitting in any backpack. In fact, I see some advantages in carrying two units in my backpack; one for cooking and another for simultaneously heating water.

 

The construction of the Scout is absolutely top notch! The stainless steel parts are beautifully finished as if they were fine jewelry, yet are precisely made of durable heavy gauge stainless steel that will certainly withstand the test of time (plan on handing this one down to the next generation). Trust me; this stove is NOT like the other small stoves you have seen or used!

 

The Scout comes with its own nylon pouch and when you first take it out, it’s deceivingly compact as a result of some amazing engineering. My wife though that it was just a small cooking pot! The entire stove is cleverly designed to fit within the cooking pot, including the metallic sticker!

Here is the Scout set-up and ready to use

When the Scout is setup, it provides a good size stove and cooking pot with an excellent capacity (about 1-liter/3 lbs.) for heating food or water quickly using locally available ground scrub (twigs, grasses, leaves, crushed pine cones, etc.). This stove is designed for a solo hunter or backpacker, and would serve Preppers in ‘bug-out’ mode very well.

 

You can learn a lot more about this amazing compact stove by visiting SilverFire’s official website here: http://www.silverfire.us/new-for-2014-silverfire-scout-backpacking-bug-out

 

From my chair, this compact stove is a must-have item for Preppers, hunters and backpackers (heck it can easily fit into the glove compartment of most cars and trucks). And its retail price of less than $60.00 represents a great value. I just hope that Todd can keep these little beauties in stock!

 

Cheers! Capt. Bill
