This stove is my favorite all around for backpacking, and some mountaineering trips I did in moderate weather.

Be sure to practice with this stove outside a couple of times before hitting the trail. It is great for cold weather. I use a spark tool to light it, and although it flames up pretty big during the warm up cycle, that is just the thing to heat my hands when I am cold and getting ready for dinner. That big yellow initial flame is a happy sight after a long day's hike. Do not flame this stove up in your vestibule! The initial flame is warm and quickly dies down to a powerful blue one. It has been very functional in moderate to strong wind (although you still need to block the wind). I have used it in the Great Gulf, Adirondacks, and Catskills on multiple day backpacking trips without regret or a single failure. There is virtually no simmer option--but I think this stove is primarily designed to boil water quickly, especially in cold conditions. It has been very dependable for me, and I have grown to like its quirky style. Always make sure the pump is securely sealed--sometimes the inner screw at the base of the pump handle gets a little loose, and it will not pump air into the fuel tank. Tighten it down, and it's ready to go. Just a hunch, but I have a feeling this stove will outlive me. I don't mind equipment that requires a little finesse as long as it is reliable. This stove has been 100% reliable, and its fuel use rate has been satisfactory to boot. Most important: It always lights up.

This baby folds up to fit in your palm, is made of quality materials steel and copper (except for the tank adapter looks like plastic oh well) and works like a charm. If you know you need a stove on your backpacking/camping/hiking/whatever they're all the same trip then this is a solid well-priced option.
