Great stove with a few quirks...

Took this stove hunting and it worked very well as expected.
It is very light and mostly sturdy.
There are a few caveats that should be mentioned.
Time to boil can vary.. It boiled water typically in about 2-2.5 minutes at over 8500 ft., this clearly depends on the start temp of the water.
The igniter is exposed to damage sitting on top of the burner but can be protected by storing the cup clicked onto the burner. Only makes the unit 2.25 inches longer. The burner also fits inside the cup for safe storage, saving the 2.25 inch additional length.
Cup attachment is via two spring clips that can be temperamental in securing and difficult to disengage when the unit is hot. Needs a fair amount grip strength and finger pressure that some individuals may struggle to achieve.
Using the 220 gram fuel canisters will not fit inside the cup for storage, but the plastic feet do fit the larger fuel can and the feet store within the cup easily.
I really liked this unit and the price paid. If the price was higher/equal to the Jetboil, I might consider the Jetboil instead...?
