Easy to use & set-up. Boils 1 ltr. of water in just under 2 minutes. Clogs easy but maintenance is quick to perform.
Definitely need the windshield.

I have used this as my only backpacking stove for over 5 years. It has performed faithfully every time, without fail. I have only experienced clogging when using a really dirty gas/kerosene mix in the mountains of Laos (Asia). Great stove.

This stove has cooked countless meals over 20 years on six continents. Due to multifuel capability, I've always been able to gas it up, even burns unleaded gas just fine. It's been rebuilt 3 times (with pump replacement), with occasional gasket replacement. Jets clog, especially with kerosene. Keep the little needle jet-cleaner tool handy. With a little maintenance, this stove won't let you down.

A.} To get the best answer for your question, I went to two BACKPACKER staffers who can relate: Jon Dorn and Ben Fullerton, both 66. Here are a few of their three-season picks.
