Gear Review: Camp Chef Stryker 100 Stove

Camp Chef’s Mountain Series is for adventurers, designed to be lightweight and easily portable. The Stryker 100 is their isobutane stove and definitely meets those criteria.

The Stryker’s three-legged stand, 1.3 liter pot, stove, and lid all fit into one mesh carry bag – if you use the smaller cans of fuel, those will fit too. Larger cans can be stored as well, though not as neatly.

Features include matchless ignition, measurement markings in pot, an insulated sleeve that keeps things warm while also making it comfortable to hold, and Heat Ring technology, claimed to increase efficiency by 30%, which reduces fuel consumption.

I’ve used this stove backpacking and car camping, in warm weather and cold, and it has worked flawlessly. I’m amazed at how quickly it boils water (under 2 minutes for 16 ounces) and I love that the lid has a steam opening, so the water doesn’t boil over. The stove sets up quickly and easily, cools down quickly, and breaks down in no time at all.

Claimed weight is 19.4 ounces – on my home scale it measured out at 19.5 ounces for the stove only, and 20.1 ounces including the mesh carrying bag.

If you want to use your own pots or pans, the Stryker pot support adapter provides extra stability.

If you’re not a fan of isobutane stoves, Camp Chef has you covered – the Stryker MS150 burns propane.

There has obviously been some thought put into the design of this stove and its performance has been top-notch since the beginning, with no signs of slowing down. I can definitely recommend this for everything from car camping to backcountry adventures.

  1. I have this stove. It is great and a good price. I was able to store it all with an 8 oz. MSR canister. You just have to take the black lid off the canister. Make sure the canister and base are compacted completely in the stove.
