May 3, 2022

Solo Stove’s best-selling fire pit outperforms the competition in a set of rigorous field tests to earn a spot on the Editors’ Choice list

Grapevine, TX  (May 3, 2022)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Solo Stove is proud to share that their best-selling Bonfire Fire Pit has earned an REI Co-op Editors’ Choice Award. This award recognizes the top-performing gear carried by the retailer, the “best of the best at REI” as the judging panel notes. Bonfire impressed testers with its brilliant design, user-friendly experience, and efficient heat output.

Bonfire, which launched on Kickstarter in 2016, was designed to be the world’s favorite smokeless fire pit. Solo Stove’s 360° Signature Airflow Technology allows users to get the most efficient burn possible and create the smokeless experience that Solo Stove fire pits are known for. Bonfire’s wood-burning flames get 400° hotter than conventional fires, eliminating smoke and creating fine ashes. This ultra-efficient burn brings kindling to brilliant flames in minutes–so that starting a fire is fast and easy. The Bonfire Fire Pit is available on solostove.com for $399.99. Accessories, such as the stand, ember shield, and heat deflector, are available as part of Fire Pit Bundles or on their own.

“One of REI’s taglines is ‘a life outdoors is a life well lived,’ and we couldn’t agree more,” says Clint Mickle, President at Solo Stove. “The Bonfire was created with the goal to help people enjoy the outdoors with their loved ones to create good moments that become lasting memories. Whether hanging out in the backyard or staying warm in the backcountry, the Bonfire’s signature 360° airflow provides for a smoke-free experience, mesmerizing flames, and countless memories to come.”

According to the REI editorial team, “Bonfire is the standout choice for decks and patios.” The testers additionally noted that “the gleaming cylinder was especially easy to light–the initial flames grew quickly, without any need to blow on them—and it was the coziest of all the options.” Beyond good looks, REI testers deemed it a fantastic heater with its unique double-wall construction.

The REI Editors’ Choice Awards are determined by months of field testing, REI expertise, co-op member and customer feedback, and sustainability attributes. The top-performing equipment and apparel are featured in Gear Guides on Expert Advice, and the best of the best are honored with an REI Co-op Editors’ Choice Award.
