The story of a KOVEA Fuel Bottle and the Baboon Attack 

Baboon

We build our stoves to be very robust by using the best quality materials and the best suppliers we can find. We don't cut corners on quality. The last thing we want is for our stoves to fail you when you are out in the wild.  

We recently heard about an expedition in Namibia which had their KOVEA Booster+1 fuel bottle stolen by a troop of baboons. Here is their story....

"Hey guys. I want to congratulate you guys on exceptional KOVEA Booster+1 fuel bottle after baboon attackquality. We did the 5 day Fish River hike last week in Namibia and on the morning of day 2 our Kovea 1l fuel bottle was stolen by baboons. After chasing them down for about 1km on the rocks all the time having them drop and bite it, they dropped it down the side of a cliff. To my surprise the fuel was still in the bottle and it was not punctured. Luckily we were still able to make food and coffee for the rest of the trip. It looks in pretty bad shape now but did the job!"

Thanks Leroy!

Here is the actual Fuel Bottle from the KOVEA Booster+1 after the Baboon incident in Namibia. The stopper is chipped but still works, the bottle itself is seriously dented and you can clearly see two big Baboon teeth marks in the middle. 

So, can our stoves withstand wild animal attack? We build them tough, and our friends and baboons in Namibia seem to think so!

Thanks again Leroy for the great story.
