Best lightweight cannister stove on the market, burns HOT, efficiently and boils wter very quickly. Minor drawback- can be little unstable.

Very easy to use and no soot.

I love this stove too....but only below 9,000 feet. On a recent Mt. Whitney trip, I was glad someone brought along a liquid fuel stove. I have foldable legs that clip to the fuel cannister to enhance stability. The weight, size and power cannot be beat.

Great stove...Just returned from a 3-day trip. We stayed above 10,500 and had no issues with the burner.
