I got one of these when I first read the review in Backpacker Magazine. Like a lot of people, I’ve gotten frustrated finding the right type of canister for the stove I’d had. I’ve never had a problem finding a canister that would fit THIS stove.
The thing fires up consistently well, and in good conditions boils a kettle of water in 3 mins. It does tend to perform less well in really cold conditions, but I cut a piece of closed-cell foam to fit around the canister, and that seems to solve the problem.
On my recent thru-hike of the High Sierra Trail (72 miles/7 days), I managed to do the entire trip on one canister of gas, and my buddy the same.
After several years of regular use, the stove still performs perfectly.
(p.s. Some other reviewers have commented on the instability of the stove. Unfortunately, that’s pretty much the case with all canister stoves. I know that there are some third-party support legs you can get, which would probably help, if it was a big issue for you.)
