Mark Hines Mark Hines: 1000 mile Yukon Trail on foot & unsupported: We are proud to support arctic ultra-marathon runner, adventurer, writer and physiologist, Mark Hines. provides Mark with KOVEA's specialist ultra-light stoves as well as technical advice and support for several of his upcoming expeditions in Alaska, Yukon and the Himalayas. Further details on Mark's extreme adventures, research and writing are available on his website,  FaceBook page and Twitter feed.


    • In March 2016 after 39 days, Mark completed the 1000 mile Yukon Quest Trail from Fairbanks Alaska, to Whitehorse, Yukon in Canada. The trail is normally undertaken by dog-sled teams, but Mark became the first person on record to have completed the trail on foot and unsupported in this tough, isolated and deep frozen wilderness. For all his snow melting needs on this grueling adventure, Mark used our KOVEA Booster+1 stove which worked flawlessly every time, even down to minus 30oC (-22oF).
    • Stoves which Mark has used and tested in extreme conditions over the last 2 years include:

KOVEA Spider

Spider: Best all rounder for short-mid duration expeditions in sub-zero conditions, or longer durations in more termperate climates.

KOVEA Booster+1

Booster+1: Best for longer duration sub-zero expeditions for snow melt & cooking

KOVEA SupaLite Titanium 56gSupaLite Titanium 56g: Best ultralight setup for fast expeditions & races
Listen to Mark's interview on CBC Yukon Radio at the end of his epic 1000 mile journey in March 2016.

Mt Blackburn Kite Surfing Expedition, Alaska   

Flying Over Base CampKOVEA and MercatorGear supported the innovative and daring German expedition to make the first ever kite-assisted attempt on America's 5th highest mountain, the remote 4,996m Mt Blackburn, Alaska. Temperatures at the glacier base camp were regularly below minus 20oC (-4oF), and the team relied on the KOVEA Booster+1 expedition stoves to melt snow for every drop of water required over the three week period.

At high altitude camps where conditions were more extreme, the guys also used KOVEA Alpine Pot Wide for rapid water boiling and the KOVEA Spider for light weight, low temperature / high altitude usage.

Committed to the Single Market

  All our camping gas stoves and lanterns are strictly regulated under the European Gas Appliances Directive (GAD) as incorporated into domestic laws. The GAD specifies that gas appliances must be tested according to safety standards defined by a European technical standard “CEN EN 521: 2006 Specifications for dedicated liquefied petroleum gas appliances - Portable vapour pressure liquefied petroleum gas appliances”.

KOVEA engineers work hard to design products which exceed these strict European safety standards by a significant margin.
