How Does it Work?
Designed with a double wall, the Solo Stove has unique airflow properties which makes it extremely efficient. The air intake holes on the bottom of the stove channel air to the bottom of the fire while at the same time, channels warm air up between the walls of the stove. This burst of preheated oxygen feeding back into the firebox through the smaller holes at the top of the stove causes a secondary combustion. This allows the fire to burn more complete which is why there is very little smoke during full burn. A more efficient burn also means you'll use much less wood compared to an open camp fire.

My only gripe, and this is minor, is the pot holder fits rather loosely into the top of the stove. I wish it was designed to "click" into place, to make the entire arrangement more secure when stowed in a backpack or other container. As it is, stored in the provided bag or in your own storage bag, it rattles around.
Side Note: Alder wood chips burn true once you get a good burn little to no smoke and you can cook and boil whatever in a couple minutes I never had to wait for my brew to get hot! Very compact light and discreet. Fits right into your traditional camp cookware... the rangers will never know you had a fire going strong at the campsite! Awesome Lil Wood Stove!!
I tested the Solo Stove at 45F, 850 feet elevation in wind gusts up to 30 MPH with 1.5 quarts of water in an uncovered 2 quart heavy kitchen aluminum sauce pan and no wind shielding (not trail equipment). Got the water to a full boil in less than 20 minutes. Fuel was twigs picked up from my yard after an inch of rain the previous day. No dried or split wood was used, only twigs that I could break to size by hand. The Solo is not smokeless but it is very low smoke compared to a firepit or most other wood stoves. Your pots and pans will get blackened.
I have used Primus and other white gas stoves that did not do any better. Even a backpacker propane stove will take 12 to 15 minutes to boil water under these conditions. Butane stoves are more reliable than white gas but fall off in effectiveness as the temperature gets close to freezing where they stop working.
It takes 8 to 10 minutes to get a a solid fire going in the Solo. This stove requires nearly continuous feeding of small twigs to maintain full heat output but it only took 4 to five handfuls of twigs to get started and bring the water to a boil. 25 minutes later the stove was only warm to the touch and only ashes were left. All the fuel had been consumed.
Unlike most other backpacker twig stoves, the Solo stove is double walled construction. The outside will not get hot enough to create a risk of starting a forest fire. No burning embers will drop through to the ground. So it is not necessary to find a large rock or other inflammable surface to set the stove on (I have a folding rocket type twig stove with a grated bottom that can only be used on rock surfaces).
This won't beat my Zebco propane burner top for speed or ease of use. But at 8 oz versus 3lbs it is certainly more packable and you won't run out of fuel or have an equipment failure.
A couple of hints for for real world backpack cooking:
1. Always use a wind shield. Make one from three 18-24 inch metal rods and some heavy duty aluminum foil. This is bigger, lighter and cheaper than buying the manufactured ones. This is strongly recommended with all types of stoves.
2. The best fire starter is a cotton ball wiped in Vaseline petroleum jelly. It will start from a single good spark and burn 3 - 5 minutes. Plus, you only add a couple of ounces to your backpack counting the striker.
As for the stove itself, it's really easy to use and reduces twigs to basically nothing. Once you get it going good it will dry out and burn moist sticks as well. I was able to boil 2 cups of water in well under 10 minutes which is nice. I was also amazed at how well it meshed with my current system. I have been using a GSI Soloist and a mini trangia alcohol stove for my outings but really wanted a stove that I could gather fuel instead of carry it. The Solo Stove is perfect for the job. It fits right down into my GSI pot and the trangia fits inside of it so now I have dual stove capability when backpacking with barely any extra weight. I don't have to carry the windscreen or the pot stand for my alcohol stove anymore either because it fits down inside the Solo Stove.
The value of this stove can't be beaten either. Comparable stoves sell for well over 100 dollars and aren't made to the quality that this one is. This stove is as solid as they come and still very light weight. I am very happy with my purchase and recommend it highly.
