ExpressSpider

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good all-around stove for three-season use. This compact white gas stove is the smallest stove that I own. It weighs 10 oz with the pump, which is 4 oz lighter than the MSR WhisperLite (14 oz with pump). It's also a bit smaller and all together perfect for one-person cooking. The pump uses a leather gasket instead of a rubber gasket as in the MSR pumps. Either way, if you maintain them they will last for years. I was drawn to the Primus brand partly because of the metal pump. I got my first WhisperLite… Full review

Eta Lite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Might be one of the most overlooked stoves out there. Singles and couples would do well to research this stove for its ease, portability, weight, and design. I LOVE my Primus ETA Lite. As a backpacker I've used this on three major multi-day trips and several shorter trips. The self contained design (fuel canister and stove all fit in mug with locking lid) makes it easy to throw in the pack. The mug locks on the stove so that you're not worried about stability, but it also includes a stabilizer for… Full review

CampFire Cookset S/S - Small

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Extremely strong and beautifully designed cookware set (1.0L + 1.8L + frying pan). Mostly intended for cooking on stoves, but also may be used on open fire. Well stackable with ETA-II and Primetech-I cooking sets. In the meantime it’s heavy and has a frying pan with limited use scope in backcountry. Some minor items favor the classy look over utility. We decided to buy this cooking set after we became aware of our Primetech (see my full review) and ETA pots’ limited lifetime. We use our pots… Full review

ClassicTrail

rated 4 of 5 stars A great, cheap, no-frills, somewhat lightweight stove. I went backpacking just this past weekend and found myself in a predicament; the Solo Stove I had planned to use was out of the question as I would be traveling into an area under an open fire ban. And so, I found myself needing to get a cheap, simple to use stove for the weekend.  The Primus Classic Trail fit that bill to a tee. With a 225g canister, both items came in at under $30, and worked perfectly with my Solo Pot 900. The pot wasn't… Full review

Campfire Utility Sack

rated 5 of 5 stars Robust and reliable, the Primus Primetech CampFire Utility Sack has many uses from the backcountry to your back door! With its low cost and durability, picking up this versatile workhorse is a no-brainer, must-have! The Primus New Primetech CampFire Utility Sack is a great addition to any outdoorsperson's kit! As a member of another website, at times I am given product to test and evaluate. This is NOT the case this time. I saw the potential of uses for this item if its website claims were accurate.
