User Review: Coleman Feather 442 Dual Fuel Stove
Price Paid: $40
I currently keep this stove in my inventory for some versions of car camping. Otherwise I will use the 2 burner Coleman stove.
I have had the Feather 442 since 2005. Originally, I used the feather on backpacking trips. It has always served me well. The red plastic handle melted in the beginning, due to the high heat from cooking.
Meals were cooked efficiently, quickly, and with no failures from the stove itself. I did notice that the stove burned a little loud on high. The simmer control on low levels really was never a simmer, but lower levels of the burn was accomplished.
Wind resistance is good, the included windscreen works very well to deflect the wind. It boils water and cooks well with windscreen on.
My satisfaction level is average. Coleman makes a good stove, solid products, and I would recommend this as a stove to be used in camping.
