Primus Onja Duo Stove

This smart two burner stove from Primus comes in handy on camping trips or days out, combining a folding cooking system in a messenger bag style. The steel construction and heavy duty leather fabric protects the stove from knocks and general use. Once unfolded the stove is stable enough to accommodate larger cooking pots when cooking for a group. This double burner runs on lightweight backpacking canisters that tuck away neatly inside the chassis. A removable oak cutting board lid sits on top of the stove, coming in handy when preparing and serving food. Bon Appetit!
