High Angle Solutions – Optimus Polaris Optifuel

We raised the standards so high with this versatile, award-winning stove that the Man in the Moon wants one. He can’t, but you’ll rejoice in this multitalented stove that takes nearly any fuel* you want to give it to make sure you have a warm meal … anytime, anywhere, any weather. You get superior, reliable, one-jet cooking performance with no fiddling to change nozzles or attachments. When using LP Gas canisters, just flip between 4 Season Mode in cold temps and the Efficiency Mode for other use. Need a little stove scrub? Shazam! With the integrated magnetic cleaning needle, you can do that too, even while cooking. Plus, get end-of-day yum in the tum quickly with the patented quick-priming burner.

High Angle Solutions is a weekly series of articles focusing on military mountaineering solutions. It’s brought to you by UK-based Brigantes Consulting, in conjunction with several other brands, both here in the US and abroad.

    Wow! That is an amazing little stove. Now; if I could justify replacing my 20 year old MSR XGK . . .

    The only thing that they don’t mention is that the seals have a recurrent tendency to dry and crack. I used to work for a large outdoor company in Canada and we would get most of them coming back. I stick with MSR myself.
