Portable stove

Been looking for a portable stove for when we're camping either as a family or on Scout camp.

Has anybody got any experience of using outbacker?

Looks very similar to the Fontier but quite a bit better value for money Keith

I've had a frontier stove for a while for canoe camping. As you say looks virtually indentical.

Mine didn't come with a spark arrestor, so for using it in forest settings that was something i needed to sort. A modified bird feeder works well, but I then think I needed to trim one of the flue sections so that it would all still store inside the stove body.

I once had it side by side with a friend's similar 'portable' stove from one of the nordic tent makers. Hellsport I think. It was a 'tall' stove, rather than 'long' like the Frontier - and because of that I think it burned more effectively. It was about 3 times the price though.

Overall, I'm happy withe the Froniter for what it is,but if I was buying again, and all other things being equal, I'd look to see if there was a 'tall' design available. If not, and the price was a factor I'd happliy buy the Frontier again. Donald

I have one of these in our family 5m bell tent. It works great during spring, summer and autumn. During winter i wish we had bought the larger one.

We have a wildo stove, very good to be fair and all the pipes etc fit inside. It is quite heavy but not a problem in the back of a Land Rover.
One point worth noting, it gets very messy after use, my hands are black after moving it, I may just need to use better paint than the manufacturers. I keep it in a large bin bag while transporting to keep everything else in the back clean. Part of me wishes i’d Spent more to get a stainless steel one. 2006 TD5110 station wagon

We have one and wouldn't camp with out it now. Great bit of kit, keeps us warm and we cook on it.
Made a simple spark arrestor out of plastering mesh from a diy store for a few quid.
We use hardwood kindling as fuel, as softwood spots up the chimney quickly.

Thanks for the replies.

I like the look of the adjustable air flow on the Anevay but really can't justify to myself the premium (3 times the price) over the original outbacker.

Currently looks like a decision between their original and their firebox which has the airflow control.

Now realise that I've seen an outbacker firebox with Chris on the recent highland all terrain trip..... it looks great when brand new but I'm still wondering how well it will last against the more expensive frontier range.

I think selection will come down to which one (packed) fits better in the back of the 110. Keith

This is the one we have for our explorer scouts - a little bit dearer especially when you have to buy a spark arrester on top.

Good thing about it is the racks on the side for hanging t-towels and the like to dry.
