The X-Boil FS Standard is an artisanal alcohol stove made in Germany. Ultralight, it's hard to get much lighter than this and still perform as well. It's ideal for boiling water quickly, a minimalist design for one or two people. The kit includes:
An aluminium alcohol burner, 7 centimetres in diameter, weighing 17 grams: this is compatible with liquid alcohol, solid alcohol (such as Esbit tablets) and combustion gel (such as Fire Dragon). Inside there's a graphite felt pad (for use with liquid alcohol only), to ensure even combustion and prevent alcohol spillage.
A 7.4 cm high steel windscreen: Available in different diameters, this acts both as a windscreen for the burner and as a support for your popote, thanks to 3 small titanium legs. You can do without these 3 tabs and replace them with 2 titanium pegs, for example, as there are 4 holes at the top for this purpose. The windscreen can be unclipped so that it can be rolled up and stored in a pot.
A 30-millilitre bottle for carrying 8-gram methylated spirits: this stores enough alcohol for one use.
X-Boilt FS Standard is available in a range of sizes to fit your cooker. It is also designed to fit perfectly with Toaks brand products.
