There are a few options you can upgrade your kit with, the firebox comes in a cotton bag but you can upgrade it to a cordura bag. The upgrade kit contains the Grill Plate which attaches to the top of the Firebox creating a great grilling surface for outdoor cooking for anything you would want to roast over the hot coals of a campfire. Use charcoal briquettes as your heat source for extended use or slow roasting meats.
Also included is the Boil Plate which also clips securely onto the top of the Folding Firebox camping stove, converting the Firebox into a extremely efficient boiling system to be used with the Cup Charger, a stainless steel water bottle, or any of the stainless steel or titanium space saver cups that fit over the end of a thirty two ounce Nalgene water bottle. The Boil Plate boxes in the burn chamber on three sides to concentrate heat around the cooking vessel, allowing you to boil or cook with a very small fire using very little fuel. There is also an extra set of firesticks which are very handy for positioning things at different heights.

The other way to buy the stove would be to buy the model you would like and then choose to upgrade it with the additional options that are available from the drop down lists above. There is now a very high quality leather case available for the Folding Firebox Stoves.
The Mark II version differs slightly from the Mark I in so much as it now has feed holes on the sides to provide fuel to the fire without having to remove your cooking pot and it now has the ability of carrying 4 firesticks.
This really is as good as it says have used with wood, coal & gel although will need something to contain liquid fuel ( I use tinfoil) can only cook small amount on grill great for boiling and takes up no space excellent for back up or when space is limited only downside it's deceptively heavy
