Great for survival kit

I do a lot of outdoor hiking, climbing, snow shoeing. I always take the 10 essentials, and sometimes take a gas stove to boil water to make soup or tea, but a stove is bulky and heavy.

These were on sale, they are light, have been around for ever and are a proven design. They fit easily in any day pack and provide that little extra bit of security if things go wrong.

The only negative is the blister pack fuel cube packaging. It would have been nice if the fuel cube packaging had been such that more pellets would have fit within the "closed" stove. As it is I can get a pack of 3 pellets to fit inside the stove. So that is enough to heat water for soup and tea plus something to start an emergency fire for warmth. Still it would have been nicer to have been able to fit all six pellets or cubes within the stove and still had them sealed in their packaging.
