This thread is for comments on the article "Outdoor Retailer: Primus EtaSolo Stove"

Primus showed us a prototype of the EtaSolo integrated canister stove at Outdoor Retailer. The EtaSolo has a piezo ignition and built-in heat exchanger and windscreen, and comes with a 0.9-liter pot and lid.

So, you've probably noticed that the EtaSolo prototype looks remarkably similar to another integrated canister stove we all know and love.

Well, the similarity goes well beyond looks. Here's the scoop, from Primus.

Primus originally was making the burners for Jetboil, but Jetboil decided to source them elsewhere to save some money. The new burners had problems (there was a recall in January). So, some Primus retailers asked if Primus would build a comparable stove... hence, the EtaSolo which is expected to be lighter and less expensive than its counterpart.

We at Trailspace shall test it out against an updated, unrecalled Jetboil, once the EtaSolo is available.
