MSR SuperFly

Great lightweight backpacking stove. Heats up grub quickly and is compatible with many brand propane canisters. I’ve been using mine for years and wouldn’t trade it for another. The best thing is it will fit most any brand gas canister. This makes it a lot easier if you need to pick up some fuel in a hurry, you can stop at any camping store and grab whatever brand they have. Or borrow one from a fellow camper. This stove just works great and is all you need unless you're doing really high elevations. Full review

MSR PocketRocket Deluxe

As someone who’s perfectly comfortable with a cat stove, I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with the PocketRocket Deluxe Stove. But after getting comfortable with its easy-to-use features, I don’t know if I’ll ever look back. MSR Pocket RocketDeluxe Cooking in the backcountry can transform your experience from a shitty one to a phenomenal one. Whether you’re fending of hypothermia by way of boiling water or you’re hoping to cook some gourmet meals, the PocketRocket Deluxe Stove is… Full review

MSR PocketRocket 2 Mini Stove Kit

The MSR PocketRocket 2 Mini Stove Kit is light and compact with all the components you need to boil water or simmer food with the addition of a lighter and fuel canister. The MSR PocketRocket 2, representing a redesign of a long-time favorite stove, the original PocketRocket, has been out for a couple of years. I recently had a chance to test it to compare to my original PocketRocket along with a convenient MSR Mini Stove Kit. Light backpackers love items that nest together efficiently and this… Full review

Primus ETA Lite+

An affordable, lightweight, reliable "All in One Stove" that meets...no...exceeds expectations for solo or duo backpackers! A feature-rich and innovative design that still keeps it simple.                                        PRIMUS LITE+ "ALL IN ONE GAS STOVE" Primus makes sturdy, reliable, innovative stoves...and the Primus Lite+ is no exception. I have and still own numerous stoves by various manufacturers, but the stove I use exclusively when in the backcountry on short… Full review

Primus Micron Trail Stove with Piezo

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

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

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

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+

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
