Trekking: The Frontier Plus is the wood stove we’ve been waiting for
Man isn’t meant to stay indoors — our weekly “Trekking” column can attest to that. It’s a column dedicated to the adventurer inside of all of us, the one pining to ditch the office humdrum for a quick surf session or seven-week jaunt in the Grand Tetons. One day we may highlight an ultra-light stove and the next a set of handmade canoe paddles. Life doesn’t just happen inside the workplace, so get outside and live it.
Wood-burning stoves don’t exactly scream portability. In fact, most of them are large and bulky, which allows them to remain stationary and disperse heat throughout your home on cold winter nights when a simple blanket will not do. Staying warm while camping requires a different kind of device, though, something the folks behind the Frontier Plus camp stove ($460) have certainly considered before.
Designed to go anywhere you might wander, the Frontier Plus is Anevay’s answer to customers clamoring for a more portable heating solution for on-the-go use. The entirety of the stove — including the 4-inch flue and other steel components — breaks down to fit within the stove’s body, conveniently allowing you to haul the wood-burning device to the backwoods or your own backyard using a sturdy handle attached to the side. The large flue and small frame mean you can quickly install the camp stove in tents, tipis, or anywhere you might want a little extra heat, while the front-mounted door vent provides you with complete control over the draw and heat output without the hassle often associated with other heating solutions.
However, a stove wouldn’t be a stove if it didn’t offer a means for cooking. Thankfully, the removeable top plate on the Frontier Plus gives you the option to cook with multiple pans at once, or using direct heat from the flames when necessary. Adjustable legs also let you set the stovetop to your desired height, while a glass window on the front gives you a way to quickly peek inside at all times. It’s not backpack-friendly given it weighs just shy of 40 pounds, but thankfully, camp never has to be more than 100 yards away.
