Compact & lightweight for backpacking

Verified Buyer Reviewed by JohnnyB from SoCal on Monday, October 13, 2014
Purchased this stove for back packing trips with son's scout troop.
Very good value with the frequently offered discounts.
Small and lightweight, excellent for minimalist style packing. Didn't time it, but brings a large quantity of liquid to a boil quickly.
Only significant downside I've encountered is the high center of gravity, need to be very cautious with larger containers especially. Works fine for me, but might not be the best choice for younger users or anyone who isn't paying close attention. Consider something like the Kovea Booster Dual Max Gas Stove if extra cost and weight isn't an issue. Word is that white gas is more efficient at higher altitudes, so dual fuel option could be advantageous as well.
