Primus Micron Trail Stove with Piezo

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Small and mighty and easy to use in a tiny, compact little package! This little thing only weighs about 3.2 ounces, and folds up like a little contortionist to fit in a stuff sack that's actually got room enough to throw in a lighter. Some stoves have skin tight bags for storage, but this one is great! It has a built in piezo lighter and is easy to screw on a canister for use. It's super easy to use, even without reading directions. Just make sure it's screwed on the canister tightly. You don't… Full review

BRS 3000T

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent small, light, compact, and reliable stove. Plus cheap! This stove is very small and reliable, compact, and light. I compare to Primus Express stove. It has no self built-in ignitor. Consumes not more than regular stove (like Primus above, I will say 15gr). Burner is adjustable, mid-high is adjusted easily, but at low level adjustment not so good. Efficiency and gas consumption is regular for such kind of stoves. At full power it takes about 5-6 minute to boil 1 littler of water. During… Full review

Primus Express Stove

rated 2 of 5 stars Not recommend. Low build quality and reliability. I have had this stove as a gift on my birthday. After a week or two we came to seashore to meet sun rising with cup of tea. We realize that piezo had been broken, it happens after 10 minutes trip in storage bag in my car, but was able to we make some hot tea. Thanks for matches! After this I brought my stove to magazine and after a month I got new one. On the next week I came to short trip in the forest. At the end of the day I found a good place… Full review

Snow Peak LiteMax Titanium

rated 4 of 5 stars Absolutely love this stove. It is so compact it fits nicely in my cook pot with the isopro cannister. The pot support arms are easily positioned. I can adjust the burner to a pretty low setting and kind of simmer (with stirring now and then). For a lightweight backpacking stove it's really good. I had some trouble on a mountain top with 16mph winds and gusts. It didn't blow out completely but some gusts blew out one side or the other—as expected they re-lit on their own. A bit slower to boil water… Full review

Primus ETA Lite+

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Backpacking hunting stove. Purchased this stove for a backcountry elk hunting trip in Colorado. Stove worked flawlessly, but there are a few things that could make it a little more user friendly.  Knob turn has on and off, should be longer to be able to grasp with having to place hand under the cup if it boils over to shut it off.  Stove is fairly compact, but wish the cup was larger to fit a canister and the fold-up base.  Full review

MSR WindBurner Duo Stove System

rated 5 of 5 stars I have the MSR Windburner 1.8L system, for two people instead of one. My wife and I camp and backpack together. For car camping we have cast iron and a portable stove. But for backpacking, including five AT section hikes, that obviously won’t do.  We’ve tried the PocketRocket and similar things. With a titanium pot it is light, usually won’t blow out, and reasonably fuel efficient.  We have also used the one-liter pot size Windburner. But for two people when you are both hungry the fast… Full review

MSR WindBurner Personal Stove System

rated 4 of 5 stars Nice compact and efficient system, some quirks need to be addressed. I have used this stove on a couple of trekkings and one vacation now, sometimes carrying it in my backpack along with a tent and so on. So far I have used it for making tea, either for breakfast or to carry along in a thermos bottle. In the future I  may use it for heating water to apply inside the bag of a dried meal. That might include melting snow. I am curious how that would turn out in cold and on altitude. Advantages for… Full review

Optimus Polaris Optifuel

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, well built stove. Excellent flame control, even better than my Whisperlite. Good boiling times. It is loud, so I'd recommend buying a a silencer cap. Have enjoyed using it with the cap. Hike and camp in the Colorado Rockies. Bought this after reading and researching a lot of stoves. Was not happy with my WhisperLite Universal, which although better than my old Coleman in some ways, was not as good in others. Was tired of needing to change "jets" when changing fuels. This solved my issues… Full review

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great stove with a lot of adaptability, especially if hiking or camping with a small group of people. I grew up on a Svea 123 using gasoline, not white gas, for fuel. This stove is (I still have it) a blowtorch and never let me down when I needed it. Forty years later, the seals are dried out, it doesn't pressurize the same, and I thought it time to move into the 21st century. The MSR Universal Multi-fuel is the best of both worlds. I really like being able to use gasoline for my stove, it's available… Full review
