Travel light does usually apply to camping, but if you want to, here’s a thing to get your started: By Arnaud Kombuis Portable Stove/Cooking Set. When not in use, everything you need to cook, boil water and whatnot is nested into a compact cookware that weighs just 1 kg (2.2 lbs). With Kombuis, you get a stove, a pot, a lid that is also a frying pan – all crafted from 304 stainless steel and in a compact package measures 16 cm (6.3″) tall and 12 cm (4.7″) wide when assembled.

According to Belgium graduate of industrial product design, Arnaud Desseyn, the brainchild of this super cool outdoor cookware, Kombuis is a Dutch word for galley on a ship, and in Dutch, “kom” and “buis” means bowl and tube which are what it really is; the bowl, in this instance, is the pot, while the tube is the stove. Speaking of the stove, it is actually kind of neat.

Also the biggest part of the setup, the stove form the base of Kombuis and features a half grill and a hole at its side where fuel is introduced. If I may say, that’s actually quite ingenious. The frying pan/lid also deserves a special mention because it has a spout that enables easy draining of any liquid. Sweet. Obviously, the Kombuis is not going to feed an army, but a man’s (or woman’s) adventure, it should be sufficient, and it is clearly the signal to the start of camping light.
