Fire is important. You’re going to use it to cook or gather everyone around for some beverages. While digging out a fire pit is an option, some companies are offering transportable and versatile fire pits. In this installment of Gear You Deserve we are going to look at some fire pits that are easily transportable and can move with you.

Gear You Deserve is a rundown of gear you might be interested in relating to a specific topic. The series highlights equipment that runs from small to large, cheap to expensive, basic to advanced, and leaves it up to you to decide what a good fit for you is.

The Solo Stove and Pop Up Pit.

The Solo Stove and Pop Up Pit.

Solo Stove

Solo Stove as the name implies makes stoves. However, they also offer different sizes of fire pits. The Ranger ($269), the Bonfire ($349), and the upcoming Yukon ($649) all offer varying sizes for building a well burning and low smoke fire. These portable fire pits weight no more than 45 lbs on the high end and can be easily transported in a rig or trailer.

Pop Up Pit

If you are short on space for the round Solo Stove, the Pop Up Pit ($99) might be what you need. This portable fire pit folds up into a nice package no larger than a camp chair for easy storage. When it’s opened it up, it offers a 24” x 24” area to build a fire. The lightweight design keeps your fires off the ground by 15” and directs the heat outwards as opposed to on the ground.

Little Red Campfire

The Little Red Campfire ($160) is the first gas option we have on this list. It uses a regular LP gas cylinder to provide heat from its 11” tray and can be adjusted. Once you’re done, you can pop the lid back on, secure the latches, and stow it away until you hit camp again. It can also be used for cooking if the cooktop is also purchased.

Stahl Camper

The Stahl Camper ($499), like the Solo Stove, is on the higher end of the cost spectrum. It’s ability to pack down flat, and its light weight will probably appeal to some people. The four-piece construction offers a 20” x 20” V-shaped area to get your fire going in.

The Camp Chef Sequoia, UCO Flatpack, and Snow Peak Pack & Carry.

Camp Chef Sequoia Fire Pit

You probably recognize the Camp Chef name. They make a good number of cooking-related pieces of equipment. They also have the second gas option fire pit on this list. The Sequoia Fire Pit ($119) has a 14” diameter bowl and pumps out 55,000 BTUs per hour. It also comes with lava rocks, a carrying case, and two roasting sticks for whatever you might want to roast.

Uco Flatpack Grill and Fire Pit

The UCO Flatpack ($49) serves both as a fire pit and a grill. The lightest of all the options here, the Flatpack comes in a 3 lbs and packs down no larger than 1.5”. It’s not going to keep a lot of people warm, but if you are short on space and want dual functionality, this is a good option.

Snow Peak Pack & Carry

The Snow Peak Pack & Carry ($149) is the second lightest fire pit at just under 8 lbs and packs down to under 3”. The downside is the price for such a small option. However, the Pack & Carry offers some additional add ons that quickly turn the fire pit into a grill.

Michigan Overland isn't just about running trails in whatever four-wheel drive vehicle got you there. It's about experiences. It's about the people you meet. It's about having stories to tell. It's about getting outdoors and doing what you love whether it's off-roading, camping, hiking, hunting & fishing, biking, kayaking, or skiing. It doesn't matter the season. It's about adventuring in any form.

  • I have the solo stove bonfire and use it not only for camping but around the house in the winter on a sunny day. It is a premium product that I recommend to others that see the bonfire in use. I also use the solo stove campfire for camping coupled with their 4 liter pot and tripod setup. Both products generate a lot a interest while camping.
