Coleman Feather 442 Dual Fuel Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars This stove is a no-nonsense, easy to use product. It is long lasting, tough, and reliable. I have used it at least 100 times since 1994. I use only unleaded 91 fuel, nothing else. I have used this stove in varying weather conditions. Being run on Unleaded it is easily started. It cooks in windy conditions and it cooks in freezing conditions when my mates gas cookers won't even start. I won't go camping without it. It is also conveniently stored in a Tupperware container when not in use.  Full review

Alpkit Kraku

rated 3.5 of 5 stars According to Alpkit, designed with the ultralight solo adventurer in mind, this high powered camping stove has a tiny pack size but can still deliver the power output of a gas stove twice its size. I have used this on a few short trips to boil water and cook simple pasta meals. It was much better at the former. Made from titanium, it weighs just 45g. That's almost half the weight of an MSR PocketRocket and at £25 it is also half the price. It is tiny and fits easily inside a small mug. When I first… Full review

Edelrid Hexon

rated 4 of 5 stars Edelrid's answer to the classic MSR Dragonfly that does not disappoint. Lighter, more compact, and compatible with a Trangia pot stand, this multi-fuel stove truly is one of the most versatile on the market. Described by Edelrid as a new-generation, ultra-light, multi-fuel stove. Weighing just 220 grams, it’s one of the lightest stoves in its class. I have been impressed by other Edelrid products for their quality and innovation (particularly the gas canister converter which has saved m a great… Full review

Alpkit Koro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Those clever people at Alpkit have done it again. This is an excellent value-for-money gas canister burner that performs flawlessly. At just 124g and with a pre-heating tube for colder conditions and atlitude, this little stove packsa lot of punch for its size. Alpkit describe this as a serious mountaineering stove, but I am increasingly using it on the trail because it is so lightweight and compact. Used in combination with my MSR titanium cook set, this is a versatile and easy to use setup for… Full review

Optimus Svea 123

rated 5 of 5 stars Old school stove from the last century, great for modern camping. This stove is very simple to operate, you basically pour a little white gas on it and "light it on fire." This causes the fuel in the tank to expand and turn the liquid to gas. I bought this stove on the used market about a decade ago for $30. It has saved us on more than a few winter campouts in our scout troop. When our normal Coleman stoves would not operate due to the pump seal shrinking in the cold, the "Old Seva 123" always… Full review

Fire Maple FMS-118

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Pretty nice gas stove with pre-heating tube. Works stable with cold gas balloon and seem reliable enough. Suits for boiling water and food preparation. I can recommend it for hikers and tourist for food preparations even at winter. It is quite heavy and big (non-compact) compare to other stoves. (on right side Primus Express and BRS-3000T stoves) This stove is easy to set up. It stays firmly. Flame control is pretty good and gas regulation happens with delay, it should be taken into account. Spin… Full review

MSR DragonFly

rated 5 of 5 stars It's easy to use, has amazing flame control, and get stuff hot super fast. It's as fast as a Jetboil when we tested side by side, and definitely more versatile. I use it all the time and it's held up so well. This is the best little cook stove around for versatile options. I picked one up used for like 15 bucks and it's been amazing. Haven't even had to service it in about six years. It's easy to use, has amazing flame control, and get stuff hot super fast. It's as fast as a Jetboil when we tested… Full review

Optimus Svea 123

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Older technology but dependable. My first Svea 123 I purchased in the 1970s when I started backpacking. The old girl never let me down and provided enough heat to cook any trail food that was on the menu. This is so durable that if one would go on eBay you could find many antique 123's that work as good as they did when new. I say my first because the original suffered a broken stem valve back in the '90s and due to no internet I had no idea where to get a new one.  I recently purchased a new version… 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
