RELIABLE OUTDOOR COOKING GEAR TO COMPLEMENT YOUR SMARTKAT EXPEDITION. EACH AND EVERYONE PRODUCT IS A TRULY RELIABLE, LIFE-LONG COMPANION.
Primus cooking gear is outstanding in quality and performance. They have a passion for the outdoors and technical expertise. Every single stove is hand tested before it leaves the European production facility in Estonia.
This is why we love Primus:
+ Swedish engineering and European production
+ Primus develops products with as little environmental impact as possible. Products with a long life span are more environmentally friendly.The stoves develop its own individual patina over the years while continuing to perform at its best. That helps ensure that many owners never need to replace their stoves.
+ Primus Eta stoves are about 80% efficient, which means they are almost twice as fuel efficient as conventional outdoor stoves.
+ Primus gas is a carbon neutral fuel alternative. To compensate for the gas emissions of carbon dioxide and the metal container, we invest in the protection, restoration and reforestation. Because trees absorb CO2, the net contribution of CO2 from the gas is zero.
Good to know:
In the case of a Primus stove that is used regularly over a ten-year period, the production process accounts for just 10% of the stove’s total energy consumption. In other words, the fuel used in preparing food is the single biggest factor you can influence in reducing its environmental impact. Until human mankind will find an alternative to fossil fuels, the biggest difference you can make is to use our stove in the most fuel-efficient way possible.
Roots and history:
Primus has been globally pioneering outdoor cooking since 1892. Since then innovative products have made countless expeditions possible through outstanding quality and performance: a Primus stove accompanied Roald Amundsen when he was the first person to reach the South Pole on 14 December 1911. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay used a Primus on Mount Everest when they climbed the summit on 29 May 1953.
However, these are just the most popular amongst several pioneering adventures that relied on Primus amongst many Smartkat riders looking for the best outdoor equipment.
