Donate to Ukraine
The brave people of Ukraine need all the help they can get now, and especially over the coming winter. If you can, please make donations here:
- UKRAINE CRISIS | International Committee of the Red Cross (icrc.org)

…and boycott Russian gas
Most camping gas canisters available in Europe, are made in South Korea, France, UK, Greece and several other countries and they are filled with liquefied gas from USA, Middle east, Malaysia & Australia. To help eliminate the use of Russian gas in Europe (and in the event of shortages), you can use any good quality brand camping stoves and heaters to help stop funding the illegal war.
MercatorGear Gas Canister Calculator 2.0
To help you calculate how many gas canisters you will need for your trip, we have developed the MercatorGear Gas Canister Calculator. It will help you to plan your trip by working out the minimum number of gas canisters you will need for your specific cooking/water boiling needs. The calculator is based on actual usage in real world conditions, with data collected from numerous trips and expeditions. You can change various settings until you have found the best solution for your trip.
