I got this to use backpacking and on hunting trips. The first time I tried to use it was under windy conditions and the lighter wouldn't work. I ended up piling items around the stove and using matches before it lit. Once lit it works as advertised, boiling water in nothing flat. The second time I had no problems using the lighter. The third time was like the first, taking the pot off the stove and using a match which you have to hold right against the burner until you get the pot/windscreen on the stove. If the stove had spot for external lighting this would be much easier. I have had no problems getting the fuel canisters at REI or Sportsman's Warehouse.

Having used another more well-known brand, I was surprised, not only how much I liked this product, but also it's superiority in it's versatility. It is great that other cookware (backpack pots & pans) can be used in conjunction with the burner! Having burned up the other brand's burner trying to rig it to perform the same function, I found this feature fantastic. It's a bit tight to pack the fuel cannister & other impliments into the container but I did. Also, with how great it performs, I could easily overlook the unnecessary 'camo' insulating wrap.

I was really pleased with the weight and the short boil times of this stove. The low fuel consumption rate is accurate. This would have earned 5 stars excet for these couple items. I do wish the legs to support other pots were attached or had storage pouch so as not to be lost. The tabs that attach the pot to the burner "stick" and make it difficult to separate and attach the pot and burner, however once attached, the connection is VERY secure. I also wish the pot would accomodate the burner, stand and a fuel canister.

Purchased this in anticipation of hikes. All seems fine but the pot does not sit exactly right on the stand. Don't anticipate this being an issue and not worth returning over. Can't comment on the function yet. Worth the money (as much as I have only assembled it) compared to similar products / sources.

Works as well or better than its more widely known competitor with the added benefit of other cookware to be used with it. giving it more flexibility of use. I even managed to pack a fuel canister in the unit, doesn't fit perfectly or easily but it will stow. Can be purchased at a great discount in comparison also.

I highly recommend this. No joke how fast the water boils. Doesnt waste any heat or energy. You can put your hand right next to the side and not feel any heat coming off, which means one small fuel can will last a whole trip and less weight. Won't tip or spill. The pot securely clicks in and locks to the stove part. Very light. Comes with attachments to put a regular pot on top or hang the unit with a metal chord and hook. Get it.

Fast, quiet, efficient.
I took the stove on a 7 day canoe trip so that I could get my coffee before the rest of the group started fixing breakfast. It functioned perfectly and reliably every day. I am planning on taking it elk hunting, but didn't really need it in camo. The camo unit was on sale for less than the solid color one. It may be useful for hiding my morning coffee from my hunting partners. They will have to get their own.
