It's tough to imagine what expedition teams used before the XGK was in existence. This workhorse earned a permanent place on trip lists all over the world because no other stove is as reliable. Cooking can be a life-or-death situation while living in extreme conditions. The XGK burns hot, strong and fast at high altitudes, cold temperatures, and even in severe wind. How? This stove is tough enough to handle any fuel-white gas, kerosene and even poor quality diesel, to name a few - making it ideal for international travel. It's constructed from stainless steel, lightweight aluminum and brass for durability. The XGK is equipped with MSR's patented Shaker Jet technology so it cleans the jet with the flick of a wrist. Most importantly, the XGK has a clean design that's easy to use and maintain in the field. The XGK Expedition stove underscores MSR's commitment to making the tools and equipment that you need to be self-contained out in the field.
