At FLAT CAT GEAR, we design and manufacture alcohol stoves for backpackers and adventures.

We design our gear to be packable, versatile and sustainable. All of our cooking systems can be packed inside the cooking pot, which results in minimal pack volume while providing ultimate protection during hiking. Versatile: we do more than just boil water, our cooking systems also allow you to simmer, sauté, steam and even dry bake! We test all of our gear under real world conditions including high altitudes, cold temperatures and variable wind. Our alcohol stoves use sustainable resources, not fossil fuels and these fuels can be sourced locally.  Our cooking systems also support other fuels such as rubbing alcohol, alcohol gels, solid fuels (Esbit) and canister stoves.  We offer two basic cooking systems: Bobcat and Snow Leopard. The Bobcat Cooking System is our most versatile and fuel efficient cooking system and we offer 3 sizes to span 0.5 liter pots up to 2 liter pots. Using the Bobcat Cooking System, you can boil, simmer, pan fry, steam and dry baking and yet, the Bobcat System can weighs as low as 3.1 ounces. The Snow Leopard System is ideal for people who want to minimize their pack volume. Even with the smaller mug capacity, you can boil, simmer, steam and pan fry! The Snow Leopard Cooking System (including mug) can weigh less than 2.6 ounces! Everyone has their favorite mug, so the Snow Leopard comes in three sizes: Original, Junior and Senior. We currently support over 80 different mug sizes. All pricing and shipping information can be found under Shop tab directly above. We do much more than just boil water efficiently! We have the capability to make all sorts of items. We can boil and simmer so making soups is super easy. We have developed a dry baking process and routinely make fresh breads and muffins while out on the trail. We even make lasagna and quiches when we backpack. Come in and explore all of the interesting things that you can do with a FLAT CAT GEAR Cooking System!
