Price Paid: $19.99
Fisrt off is the price, at 20 bucks you can't go wrong. For the gear heads the stove weight is 3.3 oz and 3.7 oz with the stuff sack. It is made of steel. This is a good beginner stove, not too expensive. I would recomend this stove for anyone on a budget, or beginning hiking and backpacking. I haven't tested the boil time and efficiency, but it will boil quick. Yes, it's made in China.
- very fair price $20
- wt. 3.3 oz and 3.7 oz with stuff sack
- no pre-heating or priming with butane
- easy to adjust
- pot stands could be a tad closer
- about 1/2 of an oz heavy for the class (not bad)
Durability is OK, after 12 Boys Scouts used it on each campout. They are hard on equipment. One leg on the pot stand had to be tightened the last campout. That was after 2 meals a day for 3 days being cooked on it.
I believe this is an Academy Sport brand. Hope this helps you. Mudfoot74
