Designed to leave no trace, the Pop-Up Pit weighs only 8 pounds, holds up to 125 pounds of wood and measures just 24 x 24 x 15 inches when in use. Made of rust-proof materials, the fire pit includes a heat shield to enable fires on heat-sensitive surfaces such as grass or wooden decks and a portable non-stick grilling grate. The Pop-Up Pit’s construction materials let it cool in just under 90 seconds to facilitate packing up getting back on the move.

The fire pit packs into a 5 x 5 x 27-inch carrying bag that stows safely in small spaces. A propane attachment and smoker box attachment are planned for release later this year.
