User Review: Coleman Exponent Apex II
Price Paid: don't remember
I gave this a 4 star because I haven't used any other stoves and I've never had a problem with this one.
Its sturdy pot holder and adjustable legs are perfect for uneven ground. When the adjustable flame control is set all the way down for a couple minutes it tends to flame up around the pot. I've found that if you just turn it up slightly, it fixes the problem. The built in wind screen is nice. I've cooked two meals for 4, boiled water in the mornings and even warmed up some smoked oysters in their tins and still had enough fuel left for at least another day. It easily fits in an MSR pot.
I've used it on a couple dozen trips in the last five years and I know when I bought it I had limited funds. So, it's definitly worth it.
