Coleman Exponent Multi-Fuel Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Original Peak 1 Stove: One great stove...after 30 years. This is essentially a Coleman camp stove in miniature. It is slow to get going and never do it in a tent. Once it lights it will run forever...I found it ran for 5 hours on one fill. Boils water fast and has good low level for simmer. Wind protection is good but I usually use the custom made for it windscreen that came with my pots and pans. I would not recommend this for climbing or use in an area where you have restrictions or strong winds… Full review

Coleman Exponent Multi-Fuel Stove

rated 1 of 5 stars Multi-fuel? Stove so good for expeditions I bought one of these with me to the Blue Mountains in Sydney, Australia. I even had the little red fuel filter funnel to filter out impurities. What a joke. Basically, this stove would not work with unleaded petrol. The men at Coleman told me years later that you're best using white gas. After replacing the pre heating tube it still was not working—all this in the middle of nowhere in the Blue Mountains, so as you can not have an open fire there. I had… Full review

Coleman Exponent Multi-Fuel Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars My experience with the Peak 1 Multi-fuel stove 550 has been excellent, though now they are calling it Exponent I can only see a couple of difference between the two. I bought the very first generation stove. I believe it's the 550 "A" model rather than the "B" model which had a couple of very minor differences, one being the center burner screw went from a phillips to a slotted (maybe I got that backwards). I'll double check that. Also, they changed the pump to a "more friendly field repairable… Full review

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 5 of 5 stars Overall excellent stove. Gives the user more fuel options and comes with the shaker jet like the International. Had a Whisperlite International, which I really liked. Never failed me. Then for some reason I thought I needed a simmer option so I bought the Dragonfly. Failed me on a winter outing. Got rid of it and bought the Whisperlite Universal and could not be happier. Rock solid reliability like my older Whisperlite International, but with more fuel options!! Good job, MSR! Full review

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 5 of 5 stars Wonderful, very versatile stove. I bought this stove new in 2014 and have had several opportunities since then to make use of it. The fact that there are several fuel options is the main selling point for me. Before you go out with this stove you should definitely familiarize yourself with all of the functioning aspects of the stove. The stove comes with everything you need to make the change from fuel canisters to fuel bottles, and from white gas to kerosene or gasoline. In a lot of the wilderness… Full review

Primus OmniFuel

rated 5 of 5 stars This one burns all the stoves including the devil downstairs. I was a scoutmaster, and a stove collector of both gas and liquid. If you are looking for a stove, this is a machine. Top stoves in my opinion: Omnifuel and XGK EX (tied #1), Dragonfly, Omnilite, MSR MicroRocket and PocketRocket, SOTO Micro Regulator and Windmaster. If you want to buy a stove, look for manufacturer's reputation, ask veterans in backpacking, and take your time!! Full review

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 5 of 5 stars Bullet proof The WhisperLite is one of the most versatile, light, and durable liquid fuel stoves on the market. From its hose to its frame, it was built for the outdoors. Full review

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 4 of 5 stars Had it forever, still stands the test of time, always lights. When this came out it was the staple in backpacking stoves. I know there have been exciting innovations and I am weight conscience, but this thing has never failed me. Take care of your gear and it will last you forever. Full review

Vargo Triad XE

rated 3 of 5 stars This stove works as advertised. It'll heat enough water for your meal and a hot drink. But there are issues. I've used this stove perhaps 40 times in the past year or so. And while it's not a bad stove, it's not a great one either. My biggest issue is filling and refilling the stove. The fuel "capsule" cap is removed from the stand and taken apart. Filled to approximately 1oz and the cap replaced. Every freaking time. Other alcohol stoves that have an open top are much easier to cook longer because… Full review
