User Review: Brunton Talon Butane Stove
Price Paid: $29.99
Light and inexpensive. This stove has worked well for me for 2 years now. It is compact and lighter than most stoves on the market (just at 3 ounces). It boils water fast as well (about 5 minutes to boil 2 cups). On a recent trip to Cumberland Island, I noticed it boiled water a bit faster than all the other 7 stoves on the trip (much faster than some).
Its light weight and compact design make it a perfect fit inside of either of my backpacking cook sets.
The only drawback that has been pointed out to me was by my fellow backpackers on Cumberland Island. They all said that it was loud. After as much use as I have gotten out of this stove, I don't see that as a great problem.
