OmniFuel

rated 4.5 of 5 stars While family and friends were out buying MSR, I held back and continued to use my old Coleman Peak 1 until it rusted through. The biggest problem with MSR is the stiff hose that will lift the stove right off the ground. This Primus is great. This is my first season with my Primus stove. Family members own MRS DragonFly, Whisperlite, and a light weight butane burner. I've kept my Coleman Peak One (silver, not the two-valve brown one) in service for 24 years. It has been ultimately convenient, reliable,… Full review

Windscreen

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, easy to carry wind screen to use with the smaller backpacker stoves that use canister fuel. The picture above isn't the one I'm using, will show a pic below. This is a really nice addition to my cook kit. I actually have two of these, buying the new one recently to go in my girls' kit. I'm trying to teach them to be self sufficient while backpacking, so I've set them up with the Primus ExpressStove set you see in the pics below. I like how this wind screen nests inside the cook kit essentially… Full review

Micron Ti 2.5

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Compact and light, but the support arm locks are a problem. My recommendation: Buy a different stove. This is a good-looking little stove which I've used for only three days, boiling water for breakfast and dinner on the trail. Problem: The support arms are very difficult to fold for packing after using the stove, and getting more difficult after each use. One of the attachment points has started to twist so that the arms are no longer level. It's only a matter of time till the attachment fails… Full review

EtaPower Pot 1.7L

rated 3 of 5 stars Efficient, but I had problems using it with a smaller stove. I did some testing of this style ETA Power Pot vs the flat-bottom pot from a Trangia cookset with several different stoves and I did find that it was more efficient, using about 2/3 the fuel used to heat water to boiling in a flat-bottom pot of similar size. Details are in a post at https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?82631-Testing-Trangia-and-Primus-stoves-Primus-ETA-heat-exchanger-pot Whether you save enough fuel weight… Full review

EasyLight

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The only reason I can't give the Primus Easylight a perfect score is because they're so expensive. Other than that they are incredibly well built and the travel boxes make transporting them 100% worry free. The mantles are light years better than any other brands. I've been using the same mantle for years and amazingly they never fall apart. I love them, and am very happy that I was forced into buying them during a storm that had emptied the shelves of everything but. Now that I've got them, I'd… Full review
