User Review: Trangia 27-5 UL
Price Paid: $68
In an emergency there is a run on butane etc. Not a run on rubbing alcohol, heet, denatured alcohol. In my opinion the Trangia is the BEST of the alcohol stove designs for all weather conditions.
Made in Sweden for many years for all weather reliable use. If the Swedish Army used a version of one it should tell you something. Absolutely quiet and with the protection of the windscreens it is amazingly efficient. I bought it for survival purposes and it goes with me. The small amount of weight for the kit does not bother me.
The cooking set is excellent quality as is the machining etc. I would not have a volatile unreliable gas burner, I back the Trangia up with a Stratus wood burning stove in case there was ever a problem in obtaining fuel. The quality of the burner made of brass designed with the simmer ring, allows you to extinguish and save fuel or simmer and get less fuel consumption. You can carry the burner with fuel enclosed since it has an O ring.
The best description of the entire package is just plain EXCELLENT.
