    I got this stove for family hiking and backpacking trips. It is perfect for this type of use. It nests and fits well in packs. It is light and heats water amazingly fast. It probably does not heat evenly, but I just use it for heating water - so that is not a concern for me. Plus, I don't think any light stove set can heat evenly. Seems durable and well-made. Wind shield and starter are nice extras. As far as I go see, this is the best stove set for groups.

    This stove will meet your needs if you have a larger group and need to provide hot meals, snow melting or water treatment. Do not purchase if you are a minimalist who wants to save weight, but for a team, climbing or expedition this a perfect solution in a well built stove.

    I finally gave in and bought this brand after my friend told me about this company. I like this product simple due to good craftsmanship. Everything is built well, and user friendly. I think this is by far the best outdoor stove I ever owned.

    The Helios Guide Cooking System is exactly as described. A little heavy for smaller groups of up to 4 backpackers but an excellent choice if traveling in a larger group. Although it weighs in at 3 lbs, way too heavy for the minimalist, in group camping or backpacking where supplies are more easily distributed amongst participants, it adds no appreciable amount of weight to the total needed to support the group. Sets up easy and the remote ignitor works every time. Flame adjustment takes a little practice but overall and excellent product. Very stable platform for heating up to 3L at a time.

    Bought it at the outlet store in Meridian, Idaho. Great looking kit. I think it's a good value. Inverted fuel canister should promote best fuel efficiency. Wind screen snaps into place. Nice that the lids can be used as plates. It worked great the first time out. Second time out, was a champ at dinner. Made coffee the next morning and then went to boil water for dishes when it malfunctioned. Fuel was going doing the line fine, but the burner got clogged. Did all of the usually troubleshooting to no avail.
    Online customer service generated me a return ticket on the spot and a brand new unit came my way within a week. I need to use it a few more times before I fall in love with it, but if the breakdown was a fluke and the stove is reliable, then I expect to have it around for years.
