Primus Power Trail

Fastest stove

Specs

Weight 5 oz

 

There’s no quicker way to dinner than with the Power Trail. It boiled water for a group of four in a flash, and its best-in-test simmer control delivered perfectly sautéed veggies at 9,000 feet in Colorado’s Sawatch Range. The stove’s 6-inch-wide arms easily support 3-liter pots, and its 2.9-inch burner head provides a consistent flame. Ding: The Power Trail’s piezo igniter is finicky at best, so bring a backup lighter. Boil time for 1 liter of water: 2:45 Fuel efficiency: 18 grams for 1 liter of water
