User Review: Vargo Decagon
Price Paid: $24.95
Just got the stove, looked like a cool design. I have many other alcohol stove. The best of which is the Trangia Westwind. Tried this stove in my garage. Filled it. Lit it. It primed fast, (spilled a little fuel around the edge.) I placed my titanium pot on top with .5 liters of water, room temp. the stove burned but the water never boiled. Only small bubbles formed. Finally after about 12-14 minutes the stove sputtered out. I am glad I did not rely on this stove in the field.
While I like the design I will stick to my Westwind. Far more reliable and always brings water to a rolling boil without burning out and does it in about 7 minutes.
