User Review: Optimus Svea
Source: received it as a personal gift (Dad bought it for me 30 years ago)
This stove is timeless. There are hundreds of reviews over many forums and throughout the ages. This stove keeps on shining.
I would sacrifice a few ounces for reliability over the 30 years I have had mine. My Dad's is now in my son's hands. Dad's is now 35 years old. Only thing I have ever had to do is replace some washers.
