- Questions & Answers
Do you have any Question?Question: Besides weight reduction, are there any other benefits to the titanium version over the ss version? 11 Oct, 2013Answer: Weight is the primary advantage though the titanium version also benefits from reduced heat retention (cools faster after the flame has been extinguished). The SS version is slightly more durable as it's more dense.Question: Is this the "foil" type material or something thicker. By foil I mean .005 thick. Also is the SS and Ti metal the same thickness? 18 Nov, 2013Answer: The Vargo Titanium and Stainless Steel Hexagon Wood Stoves are both 0.03" thick and it is not a "foil" type material.Question: can this stove be used in no camp fire zones? 12 Oct, 2013Answer: We still have not gotten a definite word on this either way and have been told it usually depends upon the presiding forest ranger. You can always contact the ranger's office ahead of time and ask them, though we recommend erring on the side of not using any of our wood burning stoves where campfires are prohibited.Question: Can this stove use Hexane fuel tablets (as per Nesbit stove)? 28 Jan, 2014Answer: Yes, it can but not ideally. Some sort of plate or lid will need to be used to prevent the burning Hexane tablet from falling through the air holes on the bottom of the stove. 12/2015 UPDATE: We created the CONVERTER STOVE to pair with our Hexagon Wood Stove. The Converter Stove burns alcohol, fuel tabs, and fuel gels efficiently and at the correct height inside the Hexagon. Check it out under the Stoves section of the website.Question: Can this be used as a windscreen for any of your alcohol stoves? If so, will you lose efficiency with the "bloom" flame heating the side walls/panels, and perhaps being further from the pot? 10 May, 2014Answer: Yes, the Hexagon can be used as a windscreen for any of our alcohol stoves but with caution. Using the Hexagon as a windscreen with the door closed will cause the stoves to overheat causing inefficient burn times and potential boil overs. We've never done any testing in regards to the efficiency of the Hexagon as a windscreen. 12/2015 UPDATE: We created the CONVERTER STOVE to pair with our Hexagon Wood Stove. The Converter Stove burns alcohol, fuel tabs, and fuel gels efficiently and at the correct height inside the Hexagon. Check it out under the Stoves section of the website.Question: Hey guys, Love the gear. One question about hexagon wood stove and the titanium BOT. If purchased together, do the two products work with each other? Does the BOT sit on top of the stove? Does the stove fit inside the BOT when folded up? 23 Oct, 2014Answer: Yes and no. The BOT does work well on top of the Hexagon Wood Stove. However, the Hexagon does not fit inside the BOT as its diameter is too wide. The Hexagon only fits inside of our 1.3 Liter pot as its wide enough to accommodate the Hexagon.Question: Would it be possible to have the base bisected from two corners to have it fit in the bot? 31 May, 2015Answer: The Hexagon Wood Stove works together as a single piece. Bisecting the based would render it useless as it needs a solid base to hold the stove together.Question: Is it possible to use this with a gas stove that has a remote fuel tank, such as an MSR Dragonfly or a Vango? I mean will the fuel tube fit through the side panels? I live in Britain and would like to use it as a windshield for gas stoves but also have it as backup for alcohol/wood if needed. Cheers 17 Dec, 2015Answer: We wouldn't recommend using it as such since 1. the Hexagon is probably too small to fit those stoves inside and 2. there's too much potential for over heating the stoves. Using it this way is beyond its intended use and probably not safe.
