User Review: Optimus Svea
Price Paid: $50
I bought this stove in 1974 for $50. That was a lot back then. But well worth the price.
I would say this is the most important part of my hiking/pack packing adventures. It not only makes a great cook stove but can warm up and dry out a tent in very short time. I was on a 7-day trip. It rained for three days. I would fire this little wonder up and in no time my tent was dry and warm.
Make sure you have good ventilation when using in your tent. When I got divorced a few years ago, I made sure I took my Svea with me! Had it since I was a kid.
I can't say enough about this stove....what are you waiting for? Go get one or two! They're the best!
