Great 3.5 season stove. Lightweight, convenient, easy to operate, efficient, and packs very small.
- Not efficient in winter
There really isn't anything bad to say about this small, very lightweight, convenient, easy to use, idiot-proof, and no frills stove. Simply attach it to a compatible canister (i.e. isobutane, propane, and n-butane), turn the gas on, and light it (no priming or pumping necessary). It comes with a plastic case, packs very small, burns clean, and is not messy at all.
The only complaint, and it's an issue with all canister stoves, is it is not very efficient in the extreme cold because the fuel will vaporize (in winter, the higher the propane content in the blend, the better - I prefer Primus canisters).
