Titan – Cooks for 2-4 people

  • Each of these stoves runs on all natural fuel (sticks, twigs, chunk wood) and features our signature 360° airflow technology.
  • Durable double-wall construction
  • Made of 304 stainless steel
  • Our camp stoves are smokeless
    • How?
      • Rising hot air, and the absence of oxygen created by the combustion process, pulls air through the bottom vent holes. This air movement fuels the fire at its base while also providing a boost of preheated air through the vent holes at the top of the burn chamber.
      • Vent holes near the top of the burn chamber allow preheated oxygen to fuel the flame resulting in a more complete combustion and a hotter fire with less smoke.
      • More efficient burns make for faster boiling
  • The cooking ring on top of the stove allows users to place pots and pans directly on the stove to cook.  Great for survival situations, hiking, prepping, camping, backpacking, weekend trips or backyard get togethers.  Each stove comes with a carry bag to simply store and pack away.  To empty, simply let the fuel burn down, dump the ashes, and store away.  Pair these stoves with accessories from solostove.com

Byrna Technologies Inc. is a Massachusetts based company that draws on a long history of excellence in non-lethal weapons manufacturing locally and in the surrounding area.

The Byrna is intended for self-defense in situations where police are not present to offer assistance and should not be drawn when police or armed security personnel are present. Byrnas are not equipped with an orange tip to identify them as toys because they are not toys, and they do not sell to anyone under 18.

The Byrna SD is powered by compressed CO2 cartridges, just like a paintball or airsoft gun.

The Byrna SD shoots .68 caliber projectiles that are filled with a powerful chemical irritant. The projectiles are designed to burst upon impact and disperse a cloud of powerful pepper and tear gas powder.

The Byrna SD is manufactured using glass-reinforced polymers and aircraft grade aluminum. It contains more than 100 precision parts, incorporating technology from both real firearms and gas-fired launchers.
