Great little backpacking stove. A stove of this type is necessary for your fast and light arsenal, or really just anyone who backpacks. Not the lightest of this type, but inexpensive and very reliable
Put it on top of your canister, turn on the gas, light the gas. Cook. Eat. Repeat. That's the name of the game here. No more pumping, filtering, stabilizing. The canister system made famous by Jetboil remains the go-to for my fast and light system.
This goes inside of my cook set. It's small, stable, and so easy to light at high winds and high altitudes. I do recommend heavy duty "foil" to wrap around the system, then you have your own inexpensive, insulated, lightweight, Jetboil.
The stove is a little bigger than other on-the-canister stoves, but that makes it hold pots better. Less scalding fingers. I have used this on week-longs, 50-milers, snow camps and picnics.
I highly recommend this stove.
