Compact and light, but the support arm locks are a problem.
- Arms are difficult to fold after use
- One support arm bracket broke on 7th use
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 completely, I think.
Edit: I went downstairs to check the stove once more, to make sure I wasn't exaggerating the problem and one of the spot-welded support arm clips sheared from the burner head.
I've contacted (by email) the Primus Canadian and USA distributors and I will post the results from customer support.
My conclusion: A stove with non-folding arms would be less trouble, even if it took more space. Primus should re-design the locking clips for the folding arms.
