This stove is very compact and nicely put together. Works great. However it really needs the small windguard, which ups the weight and packaged size a little -- this is probably an issue with all the compressed gas stoves. It loses one star because the splayed pot support area is really too small by at least an inch. It always feels a little unsteady boiling a large pot of water. Sometimes small is too small.

If you need an ultralight, ultra packable stove this is it! It is under three ounces and packs as small as two cliff bars. I have used this stove for five years and have no complaints. It was designed to be as light as possible and as packable as possible. In high wind you may want the optional wind guard (wish they made a lighter one, it weighs more than the stove). Or you should construct your own (better option). It has performed well and is much stronger than it looks. I use to carry an MSR WhisperLite but it has been relegated to winter use only. This is the best ultralight stove I have ever used (I have used several)!
