User Review: Primus OmniFuel
Price Paid: $90
This stove is everything it promises to be. I have not personally tried mine on any fuel other than white gas, but other reviews cover that area fairly well. The thing is built like a tank... you'll never break it (like I did with my Whisperlite).
I hear a lot of people complaining about the weight. This stove only weighs two ounces more than a Whisperlite. If that seems like a big difference to you, consider eating your food cold and carrying a 14oz heap of useless trash in your pack (ok, ok, so I exaggerate, but my Whisperlite DID fail on a trip, so it was dead weight after that).
I agree that this stove is heavy... I use a soda can stove for short trips when I can go with heating water only, but if you want to cook for real this is the stove to get.
Other reviewers are right... it sounds like a harrier taking off, but it's not much different than most white gas stoves I've been around, including MSR stoves.
