My personal experience – Every breakfast and evening meals our robust MSR® XGK™ stove’s powerful flame melted snow and ice giving us lifesaving boiled water incredibly fast so we could enjoy a drink and by rehydrating our freeze dried meals – eat…
This was so necessary during the Polar Race, probably the world’s toughest race; – starting from Resolute, Nunavut (74°43’N and 94°53’W), walking & skiing 648 km to the North Magnetic Pole in 25 days
Just the extreme cold of the Arctic makes a person feel very hungry, add the enormous amount of energy (6500 calories) needed to man hauling our pulks for 12 hours per day for survival this energy needs to be replaced.
