User Review: Optimus Hiker+
Price Paid: £150
I previously had a Nova stove for years and decided to get the Hiker as I thought that it would be more stable.
Well used it 4 times then she stopped working.
Problems with the stove, I find you lift the lid then try and slide the burner out at which stage it becomes unstable and you end up pulling the complete stove and not just the burner. You also have to push the pump plunger in before you can pull the burner out.
It's quite hard to get in to light the unit, not much room. When you try and fold the unit back you have to be very careful that you don't get burned by the hot sections.
All in all not what I would expect when you pay £150 plus.
