Patagonia Wood Burning Stove & QuantuMiiR Pot

The Patagonia Wood Burning Stove we previewed early this year is now available.

Like the name says, it burns wood, like the stuff you find out on the trail, or wood pellets if there’s nothing available.

It breaks down into three pieces and boils 1 liter of water in an average of 16 minutes.

The QuantuMiiR Pot is made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and has a heat-distributing copper bottom with built-in QuantuMiiR heat exchanger.

    Has anyone used one of these woodburning backpacking stoves? This, or the biolite? I understand the appeal of not having to carry fuel, but how do you deal with the soot? Every time I’ve put pots on woodfires, I’ve had to deal with the mess of cleanup, both a basic job before putting them in my pack to break camp, and then a hard scrub at home. I’d be interested in your experience. Thanks.

      I’ve only ever used the BioLite car camping. It burns quite efficiently thanks to the fan.

      I’ve used the Toaks collapsible wood stove as well as a Solo Stove. Soot is definitely a factor, no matter how efficient the stove. Really you pretty much need to add a dedicated stuff sack to keep the sooty pots from contacting other gear; I’ve never been able to clean them well enough in the field to avoid this.

    Any truth to the rumor that the Patagonia Pro deal is going away for Mil/LEO?

    Is the 3 fuel stove I have used. It burns extremely hot in wood burning mode and soot was not a significant issue. Especially if you clean it with some vegetation I.e. grass/leaves etc
    Its the heat exchange on the pot that most interest me with this design. Though the stove looks very useful.

    So the QuantuMiiR Pot looks “really nice, but” and the but is mostly regarding that rubber lid and lack of info on their product page.

    A) I’ve never seen one of these combine copper and stainless steel and it sounds like a recipe for something very effective. I’d like to know if it is some kind of copper plating or actually a copper part and a stainless part that are somehow joined

    B) They need to list the volume of it on the product page. If you zoom in the picture, you can see it has delination markers (stamped in, not laser etched, so good work there) going to 1L, so it probably holds 1.2-1.3L filled to brim. This is all good, but should be listed in product specs and isn’t

    C) A rubber lid? This is a terrible idea. I once had one of these for a canteen cup and put up with how not easy to keep clean in the field it was. It was annoying, then it caught on fire while trying to make coffee while laying in the prone in freezing rain under a bush one day, and I decided I wouldn’t buy one of these again. So, yeah, that should be stainless with some vent holes and a tab or something to pick up by while hot.

    Nice for fair weather peregrinations, but I’ll happily yomp the weight of gas to not have to scrounge twigs and wait 15mins in the rain so lads can have coffee.
