Great stove for summer camping only. Light, small and adjustable flame makes it perfect for short back backing trips. It has a stable base and can fit pretty well everything you can think of.

I have had this stove for over 3 years now and it works great for small backpacking trips. It is light and small and it is very easy to attach the canister to the stove. There is no need for priming but you will need matches or a lighter because there is no built in lighter. The burner is adjustable and works great. Just be careful when your canister is getting empty. If you put it too low the flame will go out.
The stove comes with a heat reflector which is great because water boils much faster. It can also stay lit in the wind fairly well but nothing ridiculous. It has a very stable burner the only problem I had with it is that sometimes the line to the canister gets twisted and flips the burner. It is very small could fit in a coat pocket but the only problem is the canisters if you were to go on a long trip you would have to bring so many that they would not fit in a bag. Very durable no cleaning needed.
Nothing has broken on me yet and I've used it a lot in some pretty bad conditions. The only thing it won't do is cold weather. Below -5 Celsius the fuel goes to the bottom of the canister and the pressure doesn't bring it up and because of the fuel line being ridged you can not flip the canister so the intake is at the bottom.
