The Nova can show you awards. It can prove its legendary status. But all you really want is a good, warm meal when your stomach is crying for mercy. The compact, lightweight Nova workhorse comes to the rescue everywhere you go, from high-altitude treks to family campouts. As the benchmark for today’s multi-fuel expedition stoves, the single-jet Nova has a patented, quick-priming burner and a self-purging aluminum pump. Precise simmer control assures the stew cooks evenly while you’re setting up your shelter. And when you are in remote places, its multi-fuel option gives you the reliable flexibility you need so you can count on a warm meal before crawling into the sack to wish on a shooting star.
