Primus Multi-Fuel Stove 20th Anniversary Photo Competition Featured

Written by 

This year iconic Swedish stove brand Primus is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the launch of the world’s first Multi-Fuel stove designed to run off liquid fuels and LPgas. 

Back in 1996 Primus launched the Himalaya MFS (Multi-Fuel Stove). With its patented design it was classed as the ultimate expedition stove for unlimited use year round. This stove was built to perform in the harshest conditions and to run on all fuel types, even those found in the remotest places. Next came the Himalaya Vari-Fuel, which was based on the same design as its predecessor, then there was OmniFuel – the most award-winning stove in the Primus range and more recently the OmniLite Ti.

Primus Omni

We currently have an OmniLite Ti in for review, it is still based on the same technology as the OmniFuel and is constructed to handle demanding situations and environments. This stove is just as reliable and robust, but smaller, lighter and much more fuel-efficient. Its output has been adapted for the new generation of fuel-efficient pots with a heat exchanger. The windscreen and pot supports are made of titanium, making the stove very stable and light. OmniLite Ti works with gas, gasoline/petrol, diesel, kerosene/paraffin, and even aviation fuel. Using the separate control knob, you can adjust the flame to the heat you want, even if you are wearing gloves. The pack size is minimal and the stove is perfect for one or two eco-conscious people heading out on an adventure. Included with the stove is an ErgoPump™, a multi-tool with a cleaning needle, a foldable windscreen, a heat reflector, a 0.3l fuel bottle and a convenient and durable storage bag.

The Competition

To honour this landmark we at My Outdoors are running a Photo Competition. What we are looking for is a picture of your Primus Multi Fuel stove in action. The older the stove the better and the more amazing a background/location could get you a fabulous prize.

So post your pictures on Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag - #MyOutdoorsPrimus Alternatively post them on the My Outdoors Facebook wall or email them in to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the subject MyOutdoors Primus

The competition will run for the whole of June. All the entries will be judged by the My Outdoors and Primus team and a winner will be announced on the 11th July 2016.

The Prize


The Primus Litech cooking set: A lightweight cooking set made of hard-anodized aluminium with a multilayer non-stick surface on the inside. This makes the surface extremely temperature-resistant and prevents the food from burning and sticking to the pan. The set consists of two pots: 1.7 and 2.1 litres, a lid and a separate pot gripper, that makes the handling when cooking easier. Comes in a practical net stuff sack.

The competition is open to UK and EU residents. If you are outside the area then we cannot guarantee you will receive the prize but it would be good to see your pictures of the multi fuel stoves from all over the world. The rest of the T&C’s are below.

Davy Wright

Most at home in the outdoors, preferably on top of something big and pointy. Scotland is Davy's playground, which is why he doesn’t mind getting wet. But winter is where it’s at. Hiking, scrambling, camping and a bit of climbing when I can. Sucker for a ridge. At a lower altitude he try getting out on his bike and run if he has to.

Davy describes himself as "a bit of a gear geek, maybe less of the bit. I like to see how things work or don’t!" In following this line Davy has become a respected and authoritative blogger over the last few years, working with many of the UK's major manufacturers and retailers.

Preferred activities: Hillwalking, camping, scrambling, trying to get better at climbing/ice climbing, cycling/mountain biking

Areas commonly visited: Lochaber, Cairngorms, Lake District
