Excellent Choice for Larger Groups

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Falcon from Tennessee on Monday, August 13, 2012
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.
