Brunton’s New Bantam and Vesta

Brunton Vesta
Brunton is solidly entrenched in the outdoors technology industry, and their new line of stoves is an example of that commitment to outdoors enthusiasts.  The new Bantam and Vesta (essentially the same stove except for fuel type) are aimed at the person who wants/needs a lightweight stove that is still robust and performs well at a strong value point.  The Bantam operates with liquid fuel and the Vesta uses butane for its operation.  These are certainly products well worth investigating before making a stove purchase, and Woods Monkey intends on doing a review of these stoves as they become available.  In the meantime, here is additional information on the two stoves from Brunton’s press release.
