    Good deal here - ordered one set myself. Product of the Month promo. Basically after shipping getting the Firebox set at a good price itself plus some extras for free.

    Initially sold out in couple days now back in stock. Been looking for exactly what the Firebox Nano is advertised to do. Now I need a Trangia alcohol burner....

    Consider it a favor back for the heads up on the Reaper!

    I saw that last week. Super deal.
    Curious if there's a limit on the pre-orders.

    Freakin' enablers. Too hard to pass that one up. Hell of a deal, especially since I've had my eye on the stove alone for quite some time now.

    Agreed on all the above - @PAcanis - I had one in my cart and when went to check out it was sold out...go figure haha. I emailed SRO and they wrote back that so long as it's in stock at any time this month it will be at that sale price. After that who knows - sometimes hard not to order two in those scenarios! But I figure their well reviewed and if taken care of should last a long long time.

    @The Warrior - I had only recently learned of this one, but was looking for a stove that offers exactly what it does - portability, multiple fuel sources, easy assembly, and strong design features - this one hits on all!

    That has been my experience with them on anything they offer a good sale price on. It was never in stock when I put it in my cart. And they wouldn't B/O or honor the sale price.
    When I saw this deal earlier it was pre-order only. I hope they come through for those who tried to buy the item once it was sold out. After all, that's the whole idea of a pre-order, to gauge interest so you know how many you can sell.

    Yeah, my initial order was when it was first actually in stock, just missed out because didn't order in time. Once back in stock I didn't have any problem and looks like it's still there available for ordering. Didn't realize it was ever on a pre-order.

    Heck yeah, and the stove alone, without all the extras is $39.99.

    I couldn't pass this deal up. I've been wanting to try this Nano to add to my scout kit, and the addition of the 25oz cup is great since it nests perfectly with the 40oz kleen kanteen. Thanks for the heads up... I think.

    Yeah, just saw that. Last time it was about a week later that they were back in stock I'd say.

    They don't seem to be overly quick on shipping. Then again, I am used to Amazon.

    They used to ship in a day or two. Then they started their store in Indy. Now it takes about four days for the package to ship.
    The last order I placed with them I had to call after a week and the woman I spoke with said she had no idea why my order hadn't shipped yet. The label had been created a week earlier. After my call I had the item in two days.
    I have nothing against DC or Pathfinder or Self Reliance, but their store sucks lately. I've never been a fan of limited quantity items though.

    A little heads up for y'all.
    The black windscreen should already have the tunnels in it for the wire supports. Look it over closely and you can just make the tunnel out.
    I did not know this and tried to stick the sharp end of the support leg into the material and was having one heckuva time. No way I could do it nice and clean keeping it in the middle, so I made a phone call. I asked if there was a trick to it. That's when I found out the windscreen already had the places for the legs to insert.

    I got shipping notice as well. Can't wait to give it a whirl and see how it fits in my new centerline scout carrier.

    Got mine yesterday! Looks awesome. Super small footprint when folded and in case, fits perfectly with room to spare in Condor H2O bag front pouch, cup fits into main compartment and lid can be tucked away wherever.

    I didn't expect the stove to angled the way it is when set up for use, but it makes sense for it to fold properly - I was expecting it to be "square" when open, and didn't expect the little gap along the bottom plate on the tab-side...I assume everyone's is this way by design and not mine being defective? Doesn't bother me in the least so long as that's the way it's supposed to be which I imagine is the case. Looks like a great piece of kit for a day hike when you want a small fire or cooking source!!

    As an aside I also threw in three of the 2 oz screw tins, at $0.99 a piece hard to pass up as I can't find them locally - they're a bit different than the tin that holds the Mini Infernos - I like both tins!

    They are angular, not perfect square and just plain old cool. It really is a well thought out little fire box.
    Would make a decent addition to just about any "survival" kit.

    Just got it in. Cool little stove. I had no idea it wasn't square either. Not that it matters, just didn't know, haha. Can't wait to use it. Thanks for the heads up beestokk.

    Nice! I just can't get over the packability/versatility of this little stove. Haven't used yet but certainly looks like a winner. Happy to see others were able to score it at a good price!

    You can see the "lines" or "grooves" on the felt:

    There ya go :dblthumb:
    I didn't see them either. That's why I tried to start my own holes and said, there has to be a better way.
    Just from looking at that felt you would think the legs would push right in, especially with a pointy end. Tough stuff. I'm glad they put the tunnels in for us.
