Peak 1 Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I’ve owned two of these Peak 1 single burner stoves. I’ve only had the best of luck with my stoves. Just love it and can usually find replacement parts if necessary. I like that I don’t need to connect a braided fuel hose to a fuel canister. I bought my first Peak 1 in 1990 and it was a replacement from a Coleman Sportster, which was an older and heavier model 405. It was wonderful in 1980 but was large and held more fuel but didn’t boil water as quick. The newer models burn dual fuel, but… Full review

550B Multi-Fuel Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent old school stove. The Coleman 550B is an excellent stove that has been proven on the trail by campers and by several countries‘ militaries in the field. It is meant to be carried in a pack and used with lighter weight cookware. It has full flame control and can be used from full blast for snow melting and water boiling to simmering for rice cooking or trout browning. The stove is designed for people who actually cook in the field, not for the ultralight crowd who only boil water. For… Full review

Dual Fuel 2-Burner Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An old school stove that works well and is cheap on fuel. I have used this stove for years from summer fishing trips to camping at above 8,000 feet in Colorado in October with no issues. All I have used in mine for fuel is Coleman White gas and it is much cheaper to run than stoves that use propane gas bottles. Besides it's more green than all the 1lb bottles in the trash can from propane stoves.  Full review

Expedition 146 dlx

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is your utility workhorse canoe... It's not going to win any races, and it certainly won't portage well, but you'd be hard-pressed to find another canoe that will tolerate as much abuse as this one. This review is for the Coleman Expedition 146 dlx, also branded as the Pelican Excursion 146 dlx. Pelican acquired Coleman's canoe division in 2000 and continued making RAM-X plastic hull canoes to Coleman's specifications. Some canoes were branded Coleman, and some were branded Pelican. They eventually… Full review

Peak 1 Stove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love my Peak 1 stove! I have two Peak 1 stoves, both built in the early 1980s, and I won't buy a new one unless I have no choice. The flame control from simmer to full works perfectly, and that is a huge plus when simmering pasta/sauce for 10 minutes. The one=piece design means no hooking up fuel tanks or anything, just gas and go. It can be tough to light on cold mornings (think mid-October in Maine), but pre-heating the generator helps resolve that. I have the original (brown) Peak 1. Full review
