User Review: Soto Pocket Torch
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $20
Read a very positive review in popular backpacking magazine. So went out and purchased one. Got taken in by the review.
- Hotter than average flame.
- Does not perform in wind.
- Not able to function in higher altitudes.
Brought one after reading a leading outdoor magazine's editorial review giving it an award.
This is not a piece of gear for serious backcountry use. Found many drawbacks that limited the use of the lighter in most circumstances I would encounter outdoors.
Works well for someone who smokes a pipe and that's about it.
