Open-fire cooking you can carry anywhere, the new Alpha Bonfire from Japanese startup The Brand Labo collapses flat into a smartphone-sized package small enough to drop in a pocket. It carries easily by foot, luggage or light vehicle, building into a mini fire pit and grill you can use wherever the journey takes you. The compact kit even brings its own tiny utensils for preparing and eating the food.

From tripod-supported mesh baskets, to fold-up BBQ boxes, the market has welcomed plenty of fire pit/grills portable enough to carry in a car or on a motorcycle, but few ideal for carrying by foot and fewer still small enough to fit in a pocket. The Wolf and Grizzly Fire Safe is one that comes to mind, but it relies on a separate grill for cooking, adding to the overall packed size and weight.

In contrast, the Alpha Bonfire packs everything needed to hold a campfire and cook atop it in a tiny package that measures just 5.8 x 2.7 x 0.2 in (147 x 69 x 5 mm) when packed – truly as a compact and pocketable as a smartphone. The kit comprises five card-like, 1-mm-thick stainless steel panels that stack atop each other during travel and build up into a V-shaped fire bowl with height-adjustable grill top. The design and assembly are very similar to collapsible car-camping fire pits like the Stahl Camper or Blue Ridge Flatpacker, albeit miniaturized for activities like backpacking, kayak camping and bikepacking.
