"Petromax stands for self-sufficient lighting, self-determination and independence outdoors". It's hard to argue with that mission statement. The brand started in 1910 in Germany and exemplified perfectly what we would call 'German engineering'— creating innovative outdoor cooking tools, equipment and designs, with durability and sturdiness taking president. A personal favourite of ours is the Tripod Lashing system, a simple design that allows you to create a tripod for cooking or shelter wherever you find yourself in the wilderness.
