The Only Propane Campfire That Feels Like a Real Fire.

YOU NEED A PROPANE FIRE PIT THAT'S ACTUALLY HOT

NOT A GUTLESS PROPANE FLAME

You push hard in the backcountry. So when you finally make it back to camp, you need to recharge. You need to sit down, get warm, shovel food in your face, and maybe drink a crispy boy.

But if there's a burn ban in effect and you don't have a HOWL, you're stuck shivering and draining your energy with a heatless propane fire.

Sure, propane fire pits have always looked nice. They've got big, bright yellow flames. But there's never been any heat.

Why are propane fire pits so unbearably cold?

Because they only have flames, and flames only make hot air. When you're outside, hot air rises and blows away, leaving you out in the cold. You never get warm around an old propane fire pit the way you do with a wood fire.

REAL HEAT COMES FROM COALS

Unlike flames, coals don't make hot air. Instead, they shoot intense infrared rays straight through the air. As those rays stack up on your body, you get hotter and hotter. And that's why you eventually back away from a wood fire.

The infrared rays from wood coals are unusual. They vibrate at the exact frequencies you need to heat up water molecules. And since you're made of water, wood coals are strikingly effective at making you warm.

CAN YOU MAKE COAL HEAT WITH PROPANE?

No one had ever done it before. But we needed it, so we had to try.

We pulled together a team of engineers from MIT and Cornell, plus a legend of backpacking stove design. Then we got to work. We ran mathematical models and built dozens of prototypes. We tinkered, tested, failed and tinkered again. Twice we almost gave up.

It took all of us nearly three years. In the end, we invented a completely new technology.

NO MORE FRIGID PROPANE FIRES: THIS IS BARCOAL® TECHNOLOGY

That glowing orange tube is what we spent three years developing, our patented BarCoal® Technology. It absolutely rips at 1200+ degrees Farenheit – the same temperature as wood coals. The HOWL is equipped with two BarCoals – one on each side – each of them cranking out thigh-melting heat.

This technology is the world's first naturally aspirated, miniaturized, and portable radiant tube heater. It works without fans or electricity, so you can have a completely analog campfire at any altitude, anywhere on earth – just like a wood fire.

OK Yeah, I Want A Thigh Melter

HERE'S WHERE THE HOWL IS BETTER THAN A WOOD FIRE...

1. In the gnarliest conditions Imaginable

Monsoon Rains – Left your HOWL out in a deluge? No worries. It lights right up to deliver thigh-melting heat. No wood fire on earth can do that.

Hurricane Winds – The BarCoal stays lit in 120 MPH gusts, and the heat rays cut straight through the wind to warm you. Compare that to a wood fire.

Full On Blizzards – So it dumps a foot of snow on your camp overnight. Just dust off your HOWL, light it, and you’re warm in mere minutes. Ever tried that with a wood fire?

2. In the middle of a burn ban*

For the first time in history, you can have a real, hot campfire experience during a Stage II Burn Ban.

How is that possible? The HOWL has been fully lab tested and UL Certified to meet or exceed all of ANSI's international standards of safety.

*While it complies with all federal regulations for Stage II Burn Bans, always check your local regulations.

3. In places you can't leave ash

The HOWL leaves the ground completely cool, unburnt, and unmarked. That means you can have a bonfire in places you never could before.

We're talking about:

  • the ski area parking lot and your favorite trailhead
  • your back deck and the bow of your boat
  • whatever that flat spot was where you "camped" for that ultra race, or that music fest

NO MORE DRIVING WITH AN UNHINGED PROPANE TANK

Aside from being cold, the biggest issues with propane fire pits is the tank. Typically, you have this giant explosive bowling ball rolling around in the back of your rig, smashing up your stuff. And with every bump and corner, you're wondering how close it is to actually blowing up.

If you're going to carry a tank, you need that thing stabilized. Your tank's manufacturer demands it, saying you can only transport it with the valve pointing up. But the tank is so top-heavy, all it wants to do is tip over. So what are you supposed to do?

The HOWL solves this problem completely.

THE ONLY PROPANE FIRE PIT THAT KEEPS YOUR TANK IN PLACE

Obviously, a top-heavy cylinder isn't a stable shape. But you know what is? A cube. When you strap your HOWL and tank together, they create a single cube-shaped unit that packs up rock steady, just like a cooler.

So now, if you want to kick up dust, drift turns, crawl rocks, and huck your truck, you can. Just strap the HOWL-tank combo down your vehicle's tie points and haul ass.

Quit taking rocks for a ride

Landscaping rocks are terrible to travel with, yet most propane fire pits are sold with them.

Now take one of those pits down a stretch of washboard road, and your entire vehicle will be coated with chalky lava dust. Or when you hit a cattle grate, your rocks get tossed all over.

HOWL doesn't use rocks, so there's no mess. Just strap it in like a bundle of firewood and take whatever trail you like.
