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

Campingaz Turbo 270

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Been using a screw-on canister valve I have been selling. It's now forever useful. I have had these stoves since I started hiking and camping. I never want another stove. It boils water fast. It can cook stuff without it raising and lowering its flame. Fairly windproof. The Gaz canister fitting is not all that great, but it works. I had one fail and caused a flame around the fitting. Something that can fail due to the gas canisters having no thread. I solved that with a new conversion valve I have… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars Small, lightweight, powerful stove for all types of backpacking. This little thing has been with me for 10+ years and I have never had a problem with it. It's so easy to stash and yet powerful enough to cook for 1 or 2 people. It cuts down on the weight for any backpacking trip.  I bought the fuel canister feet, which is easy to pack and easily locks onto the fuel canisters to provide stability. It's as easy as screw on and light. It's easy to hear when it is sending gas and can be lit. It lights… Full review

Camp Chef Stryker 100 Isobutane Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a quality product at a budget price. It has a built-in starter and weight wise it is light and user friendly. Setup is easy and with the built-in lighter it fires right up. Flame control is pretty good, but simmering is not the greatest. Its strength is heating water, if you purchase the simmer plate it gives you more control over just using the flame.  The stove is pretty good in the wind and boil time for 1 or 2 cups of water is about 2.5 minutes with excellent fuel efficiency.  Darn,… Full review

MSR WindPro

rated 5 of 5 stars A little heavier than some, but worth its weight for several reasons. I have used all sorts of stoves, liquid fueled and canister types. For weight and convenience I almost always take a canister stove nowadays. The sit-on-top canister stoves are lighter, but unless weight is a major consideration on a trip I like the WindPro for several reasons. It is stable because the pot and stove are very close to the ground, not top heavy like the ones that sit atop the canister. The pot stand arms are more… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 4 of 5 stars The new 2018 Jetboil Flash is designed to boil water even faster than the original Flash. Jetboil’s Flash cooking system is a convenient option for the traditional or lightweight backpacker, who is looking to quickly boil water for hot drinks or dehydrated meals. Double the BTU’s? Jetboil DID IT. A mainstay in the outdoor industry, Jetboil was founded in New Hampshire of the USA in 2001. Their function-specific design has won millions over, and seem to be on every trail these days. Close-up… Full review
