Paddy Pallin Spondonicles

Yep, Dave Noble is correct about the name Spondonicles. However the timing is somewhat earlier than 1978, I bought mine in the earlier 1970's from Paddy Pallin, while in the Mt Druitt Bushwalking Club. Any self respecting true bushwalker wouldn't be seen without his/her Sponds. An essential piece of kit. Yep, Dave Noble is correct about the name Spondonicles.

Soto New River Pot + Amicus with Igniter

The Soto New River pot and Amicus stove are a great canister stove/pot combo, which I received as a prize for the Trailspace Top 25 reviewers of 2019. Nice sized support arms, great pot stability and light weight make this one a winner. Amicus Stove Specifications: Output: 2800 kcal/h 3260w 10210 BTU Duration: Burns approx.1.5 hours with 8 oz (250g) canister Weight: 2.9 oz (81g) Dimensions: In use 3.0 x 4.0 x 3.4 in (7.6 x 10.0 x 8.6 cm) When stowed 1.7 x 1.6 x 3.0 in (4.3 x 4.0 x 7.5 cm) (W… Full review

Jetboil Joule Group Cooking System

This is my third Jetboil stove and I literally damaged it simply setting it up. The two back stand supports are extremely flimsy. I bent one holding the stove in my hand while inserting the gas canister. I will wait until I hear a reply from Jetboil before I decide what to do with the stove. I received a Jetboil Joule as a birthday present. I have had two different Jetboil stoves in the past and was exited to use a newer and larger version. This one is advertised as being wonderful to use in temps… Full review

Camp Chef Stryker 100 Isobutane Stove

Quality build and everything fits inside, including 8-ounce fuel canister. I bought this stove to replace my JetBoil in which first the piezo igniter quit, and then the burner element disintegrated and died during my 2018 bicycle tour. I wanted a stove that would hold up under extreme conditions and pack up tight and compact for travel inside my bicycle panniers. The Camp Chef Stryker 100 sure looked like a winner as I was viewing it on the Amazon website. For comparison purposes, I’ve included… Full review

Solo Stove Lite

Terrible Customer Service. I found out after buying that they are prone to rust and didn't want to deal with that so I asked if it could be returned to them for a refund and the phone rep not only agreed but emailed their address. Since they have an office in DFW I brought it by unopened and spoke with TWO representatives on site who told me I would receive a refund. Fast forward the next week I call after hearing nothing from the company and was told by a CS rep that they would not be issuing a… Full review

Tomshoo Outdoor Camping Hiking Cookware Pot Set

I bought the Tomshoo Backpacker Stove off Amazon, kind of an impulse purchase because it was only $20, and it included a two-piece pot set as well. I had been looking for a smaller stove to take on my backpacking treks and figured I'd check this one out. I had never heard of the "Tomshoo" brand before (made in China) but saw they had other outdoor products online, so I took a chance. I'm very pleased with this little stove so far. It is very compact, and I can store a gas cylinder and a few other… Full review

Esbit Pocket Stove

Good for its designed purpose. The Esbit stove is a nice stove for simple cooking. If moving from one hunting camp to another, or along game/mountain trails throughout the day, I don't have to break out the Dragonfly and assemble/disassemble it to cook up Ramen-style noodles and coffee. It allows me to eat quick and move on. If I find an outstanding area to glass it's easy to set up, boil water for a coffee and glass the area with a coffee (that is really living). If I need to move in a hurry,… Full review

Coleman 550B Multi-Fuel Stove

30-year-old product—still delivers 100%. I‘m no expert on these stoves—this my first pressure stove, but I have a few pressure lamps so I’m familiar with the principles and safety aspects.  This a 1989 model. Hardly used and works perfectly. Nice arc of intense green/blue flame that is highly controllable. Original box, made in Canada. Will be used when camping a few times a year. Mainly coffee prep.  Full review

Trangia Hard Anodized Stove Kit

Very light and great, but the HA made my pancakes stick to the pan and make a mess. Buy the non-stick pan. The hard anodised made a mess of pancakes: I purchased a 27 and 25 ultra light hard anodised (UL HA). I had the plain aluminium version for the 25 model and non-stick for the 27 model. I tried to make pancakes using the new HA pan and the pancakes stuck to the pan. Trying to pry them off just made a mess. I used lots of oil and tried lowering the heat, but it still stuck. The HA pots did not… Full review
