About this deal

Your mileage will vary, but in the real world, that’s how it works for me. What fuel does a Trangia use I'd recommend a remote canister gas stove such as one of MSR Windpro, Optimus Vega, Primus Express Spider, Edelrid Opilio, Fire Maple FMS-118 (which was being sold very cheaply by Field & Trek as the Karrimor Alpine until fairly recently). The important point is that all these have a pre-heat tube passing through the stove flame, which allows you to run the stove with the canister upside down and avoid the normal gas performance problems in cold weather or at the end of the canister. Start the stove with the canister upright, then turn it over and adjust the flame.

Assembling the Trangia Triangle is straightforward (you get a pictorial guide to show you how). You simply fit the tags through the slots in the sheets to form a triangle (hence the name…), then push fit the burner support ring into the slots in the middle of each sheet. Once assembled, the resulting tensioned unit is surprisingly stable and robust, belying the apparent flimsiness of its components. Once you insert the standard Trangia meths or Trangia gas burner (not the Swedish Military burner which is too big) you have a combined burner stand and windshield stove unit that will safely and securely hold pans, mess tins or kettles with bases over 10cm in diameter. Using a flint and steel it is easy to light, and I've found a good puff will blow it out (although this isn't approved by Trangia). Failing that and inverted mug will starve the flame of Oxygen. Excellent build, folds super flat and is basically a no brainer to anyone owning a trangia, especially since it makes any setup a double burner solution while adding barely any weight nor bulk.

Buy 2, or combine it with another type of stove and you have a setup that will cook the finest of meals. The Triangle was not available, but now, in 2022, it has become available again in a slightly different design. It looks a bit better, but there was never a problem with the older one. It is rumoured that they discontinued it because of a patent or some such infringement. And, finally, here are shots of one of my Trangia 25 stoves, at full flame, and with simmering plate in place. Trangia is a Swedish company who have constantly re-developed, updated and improved their Trangia stove design, using their prolific experience to become the natural choice for outdoor people.

It is provided with a screw cap, which will seal the unit and any remaining fuel for transportation. (Not long term storage)I would regard this as an essential addition in all but the lightest breezes in the summer. I use a foldable foil one, that weighs next to nothing.
