Omnilite TI

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight but true expedition-grade stove for use on numerous types of fuel, regardless of the country where you are. In the meantime it’s well suitable for all people who often cook in cold weather and disregard the canister gas. I’ve been using this stove since 2013 in all my outdoor adventures. The primary fuel is white gas in domestic trips and car petrol in international trips (for me finding the gas canisters or white gas in unfamiliar country is a waste of precious time). My primary… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I used this lantern in Glacier for many backpacking trips. I was wondering if anyone knows what size the seals that are in the housing that screws onto the tank. Mine seem to be worn out and I need to replace them. I have called Primus but they sent me the wrong seals. If anyone knows the the size please list it. I have a good hardware store with an abundant supply of seals.-( o-rings ). Love them used in all my backpacking trips. Fits into pack well and is protected by plastic case. Full review

Express Stove (Piezo)

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Small, lightweight, easy, fast, and efficient. Best for boiling water. I've used this stove as the primary stove on several Sierra Club backpacking trips for 5-12 people. It boils water fast and is efficient. On a two-night trip with 12 participants, I boiled 8 liters of water each morning and 12 liters of water each evening for a total of 40 liters of water using about 2-1/2 8-oz MSR Isobutane cartridges. I dinged it half a star because valve is hard to locate with a pot on the stove. Setup: is… Full review

Micron Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an excellent stove for those who insist on canister stoves for fast food use on the trail (i.e., boil water). I bought this stove more to use at work (quick hot lunches instead of sandwiches or microwaved dishes) instead of using it in the field. Due to management concerns of safety, I had to use a canister stove rather than any liquid fuel stove, and the Micron seemed to fit the bill perfectly. This stove performed quite well in its intended role, burning very hot and boiling water very… Full review

Omnilite TI

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic stove. Comes in a stupid, ill-conceived synthetic bag. When I first got the Omnilite Ti stove I tried several fuels just to see how they worked, but knowing all along that after testing I would most likely never use anything other than white gas. It is nice to know that in an emergency one could siphon regular unleaded, AVGAS, Jet A, etc. from a vehicle or downed aircraft. Kerosene could be pressed into service and I did try diesel once. I also tried isobutane canister, although if I… Full review
