Eta Solo

rated 5 of 5 stars Great stove for solo trips. Have used for solo backpacking trips. Example: two-day trip into Harriman State Park in N.Y. Boiled water to rehydrate two entrees, one breakfast, four cups of coffee, and boiled water to fill a bowl and sponge bathe with twice. The above used about a third of the small fuel canister. Attach canister with fuel knob closed, open the valve slightly and light. Attach pot and adjust flame. The two rubber release clips need to be pinched tightly to release pot; make sure… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars This one burns all the stoves including the devil downstairs. I was a scoutmaster, and a stove collector of both gas and liquid. If you are looking for a stove, this is a machine. Top stoves in my opinion: Omnifuel and XGK EX (tied #1), Dragonfly, Omnilite, MSR MicroRocket and PocketRocket, SOTO Micro Regulator and Windmaster. If you want to buy a stove, look for manufacturer's reputation, ask veterans in backpacking, and take your time!! Full review

Polaris 360

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For those familiar with the Black Diamond Orbit and similar products, the Primus Polaris 360 hybrid flashlight/lantern is a simpler, less expensive, and more intuitive design.

For the most part, I like it more than my Black Diamond Orbit. It is an LED flashlight/lantern hybrid that uses two (2) red diodes, and one (1) high powered white diode, powered… Full review

Express Stove Ti

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Express Ti Stove — terrible experience. The stove (part of the "Primus Express Kit Ti Includes Express Ti Stove & Litech Pot") is very light and compact and that was the main reason I bought it.  However, unlike the other Primus products the Express Ti Stove appears to be of very poor quality.  When I was gently attaching the stove to the gas tank it broke in the middle for two pieces.

Express Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars This stove is very light and compact. It folds smaller than the PocketRocket and comes with a small water resistant bag to keep it in. It is lower and more stable than the PocketRocket, but does not boil as fast, but according to the specs it is more fuel efficient. Fuel is not difficult to find. It is sold at Wal-Mart. Overall this is a great stove. It has some improvements over my tried and true PocketRocket. This stove is very light and compact. It folds smaller than the PocketRocket and comes… Full review
