The Advanced Mountain Products Alumilite Stove Set alcohol stove has prodigious heat output and minimal weight. The closed jet burner can boil 1 pint of water in less than 5 minutes under optimal conditions. The Advanced Mountain Products Alumilite Stove Set alcohol stove was one of the top four performing stoves in our lab tests of 17 alcohol stoves. Advanced Mountain Products provides two stoves (one for boiling, one for simmering), a windscreen/pot support, and a fuel bottle for a very competitive price of $15.95. On the downside, the stove is difficult to fill through the small hole in the top, and the two-piece windscreen/pot stand is unstable resulting in an overall average rating for the Advanced Mountain Products Alumilite Stove Set alcohol stove.

Jay Ham started backpacking in 1990 and went lightweight in 1995. Wanting his children to experience and share in his love of the outdoors, he became obsessed with reducing the family's base weight to make backpacking with small children possible. He and his wife began designing and making much of their family's gear (including kid-sized frameless packs and top bags), as lightweight gear was scarce at the time. With a Masters in Soil Science, Jay now manages a 2.5 million acre Soil Survey project in remote Northern Arizona.
