Brunton Bantam Liquid Fuel Stove
The Brunton Bantam comes with the stove, windscreen, pump, fuel bottle, spare parts and tool, and a neat little carry bag. The carry weight is 14 ounces. The pump is metal but has some plastic where the stove attaches and also on the threads that thread into the fuel bottle.
I had a bit of trouble getting the pump to thread into the bottle but it finally went in ok. The control knob is on the pump. The stove simmers better than my MSR Simmerlite but I would not say it is precision simmering such as the MSR Dragonfly or my favorite liquid fuel stove, the Optimus Nova. The Bantam has the flip feature where you flip the fuel bottle and it drains most of the air from the bottle.
I did notice that when I unscrewed the pump from the bottle, there was a small amount of fuel that ended up on my hand. The Bantam is a white gas, Coleman fuel only stove. I paid almost half for the Bantam compared to the Simmerlite and the Bantam came with a fuel bottle. I think I am going to like this stove.
Price Paid: $60.40
This stove when ordered comes with a basic repair kit, lightweight aluminum windscreen, Coleman Fuel liquid burning folding stove, and an aluminum fuel bottle.
It primes well, then burns hot. It boils water quickly and folds compact for stowing and packing.
I did not like the soot around the burner left after priming. I also did not like that some of the fuel would spew out of the bottle when de-pressurizing.
Other than those two negatives, this is a very lightweight Coleman fuel burning stove that packs well.
