season camping. Kifaru pioneered lightweight, collapsible stoves
years ago as a practical, easy way to heat our shelters. They are
still among the lightest, most compact backcountry wood stoves ever
crafted - a great feature if you backpack, mush or use bush planes.
This little furnace does double duty for both warmth and as a
rangetop cookstove, and helps dry your gear. It heats our shelters
in minutes, transforming your outing into a warm, relaxing,
One of our
most significant designs are the pipes. A single steel pipe tube
provides easy packing and less weight. Remarkably, a 9 foot
pipe can roll down into a 2 X 14 tube.
Rages like a rocket
From Dedoubleu of Anchorage, Alaska on 10/13/2016.
I love everything about the stove, except the fact that you cannot control the burn. It rages red hot like it were full of rocket fuel. A tighter door or a chimney damper would solve the problem. Also not crazy about the spark arrester system. Seems like an unsecured connection that could be a safety hazard.
Reliable & Bombproof
From Flatbow of VANCOUVER, British Columbia on 9/25/2016.
I have used the parastove with a paratipi), the small stove with a Black Diamond Megamid and a Double Bull Ground blind (both had stove jacks added), and a large stove with a Kifaru 8 Man Tipi. All stoves worked flawlessly under sometimes extreme conditions while being used in Manitoba. Stove setup would typically take about 5 minutes.I have used both the small stove/megamid and the large stove/8 man tipi set up in cold snaps during the December moose season with overnight low ambient temperatures being anywhere from - 25 F to -36 F and the windchill at -56 F. So long as I was tending the stove about every 25-30 minutes, I was able to be completely comfortable inside the shelters wearing just a base layer.The stove is not intended to keep the shelter warm overnight, but that is no big deal assuming you have a proper sleep system for the conditions you will encounter. Simply prepare your tinder and kindling for starting the stove before tucking in to your sleeping bag. In the morning just stick your arms out of your sleeping bag to load your tinder/kindling preparation in the stove, light it and hit the snooze button so you can doze off for a few more minutes while your shelter reheats.

I own a Kifaru Parastove, Small and Large stoves. In fact been a user for over a decade. These things are bomb proof. Thousands of burns without any issues. Totally reliable! Great to cook as well!
Excellent collapsible stove
From Daniel Harris of Cambridge, England on 2/28/2016.
Buying stoves over here in the UK can be difficult, so when I found out this one I had to jump at it!Its lightweight, easy to store and carry, and warms up a tipi in no time. I am looking forward to field testing it with my lads in a few months.We need a Kifaru stockist in the UK.
Worth the money

Well constructed , well thought out. Plan on using for hot tenting, and emergency heat .
Awesome in the Sawtooth!
From Anonymous of Minot, North Dakota on 11/28/2014.
I have the medium stove in my Sawtooth and it is a 10/10 in my opinion. I was super impressed with how easy it is to setup and tear down with NO TOOLS! It packs down small and light and is the best piece of gear for elk hunting I have ever purchased in combination with my Sawtooth.
Small Box Stove in Sawtooth
From Jeremy Berg of Minot, North Dakota on 10/8/2014.
Small box stove in my Sawtooth is absolutely awesome. Have used in temps down to teens and when fully loaded keeps the tent around 60! It's not going to stay lit all night while you sleep obviously, but you go to bed warm and dry and it can be re-stoked easily once you have a bed of hot coals! Highly recommended.
Love my new Para Stove
From Jimmy of Sweden, Sweden on 11/29/2013.
Good value, good quality - simple love the stove. Going to test it soon and I am hoping it'll warm up my GoLite Shangra-Li 3 tent well! Thanks!
