Seek Outside U-turn Stove

The Seek Outside U-Turn stove is an even lighter version of Seek Outside titanium stoves. The U-turn stove uses lighter weight titanium foil for the stove sides and back, plus a smaller diameter stovepipe and damper that is not interchangeable with our other stoves.

The Seek Outside U-Turn stoves maintain the ease of assembly and use of our box stoves, but cut significant weight (12 oz on a medium with 6 feet of pipe).  The U-Turn stoves compare favorably to cylinder stoves on the market from a weight perspective, while being much sturdier, easier to assemble, and easier to cook on due to the flat top.

If you desire a very lightweight stove that works great for cooking or melting snow, the U-Turn is probably right for you.

Please notice, the pipe is sold separately.

Good to know

When you use the stove you have to make sure that there are no items such as backpacks or sleeping bags close by (or dry materials under the stove), and you also have to make sure that fresh air can enter the tent somehow. Your tent needs a special stove jack. Make sure your opening is safe for stove pipes. All of our Seek Outside tents got a stove jack installed.

The first time you use your new stove, it requires a “burn in”. The burn in will help the material to find its final shape. This is especially important for the stove pipe. The first time you roll up the stove pipe it can be quite hard, but after the burn in, it will be a lot easier and so easy that it can be done alone in about 2-3 minutes. This link will take you to a youtube video where you can see how to roll the pipe before the first burn in.

It is important to clean the stove, spark arrestor and pipe thoroughly from soot and ashes between uses to eliminate creosote build up.

What to Expect:

Stoves add comfort, the ability to dry gear, and gives cold weather trips an element of enjoyment and fun that is lacking without the stove.  They allow you to go to bed warm and dry, and to warm up first thing in the morning.  They can also extend or replace cooking fuel weight.

They don’t however, replace sleeping gear insulation.  The stoves burn hot and fast, but to keep the temps up they need to be fed regularly.  So if you have a forecast for 0° then you should have a 0° rated bag, unless you want to stay up all night stoking the fire.

Longer burn times require larger wood.  If you prep larger wood you can get through the night with 3-4 stokings.  In our opinion a good beefy knife for batoning rounds and a good quality folding or lightweight saw are all the tools you need for wood prep, and are superior to a hatchet or axe for most users.
