Nomad Life Titanium Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This sub 1oz stove puts out some serious heat and packs up small. Only one small problem. Looking for a stove to better fit my GSI Minimalist set, I found this small sub 1oz stove on Amazon. For $22, I figured I could take a chance. I also found some reviews on YouTube under the name BRS 3000T. This stove is also sold under the name Nomad Life for $25. Normally I like to live with something for a while before reviewing, but I wanted to let people know about one minor flaw on this stove.....It may… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy to use, lightweight burner stove. I've had a liquid fuel stove for years (MSR SimmerLite), but wanted something more compact and lighter for when I solo backpack or for short overnights with another person. The burner is small and compact. It fits into my cook set, taking up less space in my pack. Easy to light and control the amount of flame form the burner. Connection to fuel canister is easy.  One downside is the wasted fuel canister when the fuel is spent. But you can always scrap the… Full review

Ozark Trail 2 Burner Propane Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Don't do it! If you have purchased one of these, look for your receipt and return it to Walmart or wherever you bought it.  Bought one new and sent it with my son on a trip to Canada. The piece of junk won't light! Returning it for a full refund when he gets back.  Full review

Jetboil Zip Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars The Jetboil Zip is a great choice for anyone wanting an affordable and highly effective personal cooking system that works well on overnights and thru-hikes alike. Don’t let that hiker appetite slow you down, use the Zip and your hunger will be gone in a jiff! I put this system to the test with several overnight and weekend trips before finally taking it on a section hike of the AT. The first 1,000 miles NOBO and I had the Zip with me every step of the way. I used it to boil water and cook different… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite piece of equipment! I'm on my second MSR PR, but the other one was used and abused and held up long past what I expected. I carry a small neoprene pad for under the canister when it's below 10° F. Full-on for boiling water is its strength. However, flame control is great—I have a small titanium pan for cooking quesadillas and vegeburgers. (A little bit of olive oil keeps the food from sticking and burning directly over the flame.) Does okay in the wind and altitude, I've used it at… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars When I first received the PocketRocket I was a little disappointed it didn't have a piezo ignition. After having used it in countless hikes against other stoves, I have nothing to complain about. I almost always heat, eat, and finish my meal before anyone else's water is even boiling. Setup: Fast. Just flick out the three prongs and screw it on.  Ignition: If using a portable piezo, always lights in just a couple of clicks, or if you get to know your own stove, lights on the first click. I bought… Full review

Jetboil MiniMo Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Jetboil fans rejoice! Satisfying simmer control plus a new pot size/shape make this complete/modular canister stove worthy of adding to or upgrading your kit. The versatility of accessories such as the pot support also elevate it to a fully stand-alone stove for most applications. Given its size (1 L), base weight (14.6 oz) and weight-saving options, it can serve a solo backpacker or small group alike. The ease and speed at which such an all-inclusive unit boils water has made it my preferred stove… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 5 of 5 stars Love this stove! Super fast and packs well. Easy setup and built-in, one-strike ignition. This is a really solid stove and easy to use. I was amazed at how fast it boils water, usually around 100 seconds at low altitude.   I purchased the french coffee press to go with it and now I can have my favorite coffee on the trail just like I would at home. This system comes with basically everything you need for simple heating (i.e., water for dehydrated foods or hot drinks). If you are going to do any… Full review

Olicamp Ion Micro Titanium Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely light, extremely small. The lightest canister stove so far. Great for ultralight backpacking using a Ti mug. Lets you simmer vs. an alcohol stove! I tried a couple of different alcohol stoves and wasn't impressed by their ease-of-use and fuel consumption but they were lighter than existing canister stoves. I stumbled across the Olicamp Ion Micro Ti stove on the interweb and for about $45, I gave a shot.  Weighing in at 49g with case (45+4), the Ion Micro is the smallest and lightest canister… Full review
