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.

Primetech 1.3L Stove Set

rated 5 of 5 stars Primus's new Primetech 1.3 liter hits the mark by lowering both fuel consumption and burner noise to a whisper in a fairly lightweight, high volume package. I had opportunity to spend three weeks with the Primus New Primetech 1.3L Stove Kit both in the Dolly Sods Wilderness backcountry and in campgrounds.

Tupike Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars Anything I can do at home with two burners, I can do on the road. Can't go wrong with this stove. This is a great stove; nothing flimsy about its construction!
