PDW Ti-Line Multi-Fuel Survival Stove

Tuesday, August 10th, 2021

Compact, Titanium Stove That Uses Wood, Hexamine Tabs, Or Alcohol For Fuel

Prometheus Design Werx introduces their new Ti-Line Multi-Fuel Survival Stove for mid-Summer 2021. A compact, titanium stove that uses more easily sourced-foraged wood (biomass), hexamine tabs, or alcohol (with our optional Alcohol Burner Core) for fuel and does not use or rely on highly processed fossil fuels to operate. The Ti-Line MFSS is engineered with a unique double wall, which optimizes the air flow mix to create a hotter and cleaner burn of all fuels. A total of five components take down to easily nest inside most common 500-600ML backpacker style mini-pots. Designed to boil between 1 cup (240ML) to 2 cups (500ML) of water to match required volumes for most freeze-dried meal packs to instant noodles. 2-position pot stands fit cups to pots.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“While it’s tough to beat the convenience and expedience of a modern isobutane-propane cartridge backpacking stove, there are finite limitations to their use. Simply put, when you run out of the cartridge gas fuel, the stove becomes useless. We wanted to create a compact stove with a similar packed footprint that was not constrained by highly processed fossil fuels. A stove that uses fuel that could be easily source or foraged in the field. The Ti-Line MFSS can use biomass fuel from sticks, pinecones, to even cardboard. Hexamine type fuel tabs are also an available fuel source which pack down very small and are designed to boil 1 cup of water per tab. And with our optional Alcohol Burner Core, you can use alcohol (which you could distill at home) in its many forms, as long as it is of a high enough proof. You can use common 97%+ isopropyl rubbing alcohol to even everclear if necessary. We like the alcohol option and as a liquid fuel, it burns clean, can be used as a disinfectant, and won’t leave behind messy toxic residue like white gas. Our double wall construction bumps up the tech in this stove, creating a more efficient, hotter, and cleaner burn. With a little prep and planning, our Ti-Line MFSS can be used in a variety of conditions, and useable far beyond any fossil fuel based types of stoves. The small footprint of our stove allows it to be easily packed and stored until it’s needed. From backpacking to survival and a little peace of mind, the Ti-Line MFSS will keep you cooking.”

The Ti-Line MFSS will be available for $59.00 on Wednesday, August 11th, 2021 at 12:00 noon Pacific via their website,

Camp Fare Gourmet Meals Are Back In Stock

Thursday, June 24th, 2021

Last year we wrote about Camp Fare meals and they flew off the shelf?, but it wasn’t just SSD readers who loved these gourmet meals in MRE-style retort pouches were a hit with a lot of people. So much so that they would out during the height of COVID last year and them had trouble replenishing their supply.

I recently spoke with founder and executive chef Andrew Sarda and he told me his entrees are restocked.

One of the favorites is the Chicken Tikka Masala with French Green Lentils. It is excellent. Below you can see it out of the pouch.

Other meals include Beef Burgendy with Field Vegetables, Wild Alaskan Salmon and Brown Rice and Red Quinoa with Pink Beans.

Get Back Outdoors!

Saturday, April 17th, 2021

MIAMI, OKLA. – After a long winter, plus indoor quarantining due to COVID-19, it’s time to get back outdoors. Many families are planning their camping trips in anticipation of good weather and as a way to safely take a break from COVID-19 restrictions.

Both RVing and camping are seeing a strong upwards trend for families. Whether you’re a seasoned camper or a first-time RVer, it’s essential to be prepared before you hit the open road.

Prepare: Drinkable Water

Ensuring you have a surplus of drinkable water for the duration of your trip needs to be a top priority. As you plan, take a cue from experts in preparedness, the U.S. Armed Forces, and put Scepter Military Water Cans on your “must-have” list of gear. Standard issue to the U.S. and Canadian Armed Forces, these easy-to-carry, virtually indestructible containers are up to the task of camping trips, sports expeditions, boating and more.

Scepter Military Water Cans are BPA-free to keep chemicals, odors and tastes out of your water. They’re also corrosion- and fungus-resistant, so your drinking water is clean and safe. A quick-pour option makes it possible to empty up to five gallons of water in under seven seconds through the four-inch wide cap opening. Or, there are two ways to pour slowly when you’re at your campsite. There is a small cap on the top (along with air secondary air vent) built into the major cap. This makes it easy to pour normally. An optional dispenser spout is also available for when you need to fill cups or bottles.

Hassle-Free Fuel Options

Having a comfortable and convenient way of refueling sporting equipment, recreation vehicles and other gear can make your travel prep and on-the-go fill-ups clean, fast and hassle-free.

The Scepter SmartControl family of fuel containers makes refueling hassle-free while on vacation. The line-up is available in one-, two- and five-gallon sizes for gasoline, diesel and kerosene. The containers come in different shapes and with different handle options to fit the application, for controllable flow and no-mess usage.

With a single motion, the user simply presses the lever up on the SmartControl container to unlock the child safety feature. Then, with the palm of the hand you squeeze the large button. The first squeeze is done when upright to vent the container. Next, the nozzle gets placed over the tank. A second gentle squeeze allows you to pour just the right amount of fuel for your outdoor activity.

 Scepter Military Water Cans are available from Amazon, Walmart®, Grainger®, Tech Supply and Services, Bottom Line Military Sales, Lexington Container Company, DS Tactical and Scepter SmartControl fuel containers can be found in The Home Depot®, Walmart®, Lowe’s®, AutoZone®, Pep Boys, Target and Northern® Tool + Equipment stores.
