The complete system comes with the the alcohol and esbit stoves featured in the standard the Caldera Cone, but also allows you to burn wood! No other system gives you this kind of fuel versatility at these weights. The Ti-Tri system includes the Ti-Tri titanium cone custom sized to fit your pot, the titanium GramCracker solid fuel kit, the lightweight aluminum 12-10 stove with integrated primer pan, fuel bottle kit with measuring cup, Caldera Caddy to store and protect your gear PLUS double as a mug and bowl, and two titanium stakes for wood burning mode. (pot not included)

The Caldera Ti-Tri is designed to be an alcohol and esbit cooking system that will support wood fires. If you would like to kick your wood fire capabilities up to the next level, you might want to consider adding the Inferno insert .  The Inferno Insert and grate system, when used in conjunction with the Ti-Tri facilitates better air flow and a much cleaner, more complete incineration for your wood fire. In addition to the lower grate system providing air flow under your fire, it also directs additional fresh air above your fire providing an "afterburner" effect giving you more complete combustion.

In the interest of facilitating Leave No Trace practices, Trail Designs also offers two styles of titanium floor plates to go under your Ti-Tri systems in wood burning mode to help prevent scorching of the ground.


  • Titanium Ti-Tri Cone sized to fit your pot perfectly
  • Titanium Gram Cracker solid fuel/esbit stove kit
  • 2 titanium stakes for wood burning mode
  • Aluminum 12-10 alcohol stove with integrated primer pan made from recycled material

"One can find many burners that can cook a half liter of water in three minutes but this is the coolest that weighs 63 grams and folds smaller than a coke bottle.  Trail Designs own thumping Caldera brand is more fun.... and more modern than anything on the market and we love it already."

"....Caldera’s cone captures and maximizes heat from three potential sources: wood, alcohol, and esbit (a solid fuel tablet)......this versatile system requires much less fuel than petroleum-based systems so it’s more weight-efficient for backpacking.."

Planning a hike on the Pacific Northwest Trail - Chris Townsend

"I've been impressed with the Caldera Cone stove unit in recent years.... However wood will be the easiest fuel to find for most of the walk so a wood-burning stove would be a good idea. As there may be places with no sticks and for when rain makes a wood stove impractical I've decided on a Caldera Ti-Tri Inferno...."

On Test - Wood Burning Stoves

"While not designed primarily as a wood stove, the Ti-Tri works pretty well with a fire inside. The cone does the same windshield, chimney and pot support job as with a meths burner. The weight is very low and the cone is more flexible and easier to use than the standard version. One could say that this is the luxury Caldera Cone."

"The CC TT Inferno is the most stable of the wood burners I've tried."
    Carol Corbridge on Boomer's Lightweight Backpacking Blog - 8/18/09

"Caldera Cone - It's just a genius design with the pot stand being the wind shield. Very stable, very efficient and cool looking too. I have three of these now: the Keg-H, the standard cone for the SP900 and a ti-tri with inferno for the MSR Titan.."

"Finally settled on a Caldera cone alcohol/esbit/wood stove. Absolutely fabulous. Probably the single best gear upgrade last year. Very light and completely silent cooking."

"I did just get a Caldera Cone Ti-Tri to start using on solo trips and it made a convert out of me on the first night."

"....this is perhaps the optimum solution when wood is available but you would like to carry fuel as a back up."

"[The Trail Designs Ti-Tri] stove system has my highest recommendation. With a little user input it is pretty close to perfect....."
     Jason Smith on BPL Reader Reviews - 2/19/08

"....once I discovered and started using the Trail Designs Caldera Cone systems, I found that I am using the Bushbuddy less and less. The Trail Designs system has an integrated windscreen and performs better in breezy conditions, is lighter in weight, and is designed to burn alcohol. Also, the Trail Designs system allows me to lay tinder and kindling for my fire, and then light the fire from the side. This makes starting a fire much easier. So, I don't use the Bushbuddy much anymore. Not because it is a bad stove, but because I simply like the Trail Designs Ti-Tri Caldera Cone better."
     Kai Larson Review - 12/23/08

"I have been using a 2 litre version of the Ti-Tri since Xmas. I am awed by it's efficiency and versatility, and have used it with Esbit, wood, .....but this weekend I used it for something different...something that I couldn't achieve with a BushBuddy..... ....after dinner it was getting pretty cold, and there was tons of very dry firewood all over the place. So I fired up the Ti-Tri and we all sat around this little blazing inferno. It threw out enough heat to keep us cozy and chatting for a couple of hours. It was amazing how much fuel you could load into it in one go, and we took turns tossing in the next piece of wood. We could also pitch in wood of a much greater diameter and length than anything the BushBuddy could handle. All this contained within a 2oz tiny circle of focused heat. Hats off to the designers of this mighty stove/space heater!
