Necessity is the mother of invention and at Countryside Ski & Climb we appreciate that brands which develop like this often prove to be the most innovative, rugged and reliable.  Primus is one such brand. Their first stove, (whose name the brand now adopts), was created in 1892 by two Scandanavian inventor-adventurers Lindqvist and Svenson.  It was the first soot-free, lightweight and packable cooking stove.  Since then, Primus has always aided the triumph of adventurers and outdoorsy types across the globe. From the slopes of the Himalaya to the deep arctic and from the undeveloped world to campsites the in UK, Primus has been everywhere – where are you going with yours?
