Amazing, Incredible, Dare I say Perfect?

This little stove has everything going for it! It's small, super light, easy to use, and boils water amazingly fast. I've been using it with the GSR Haulite Ketalist cookset (side note for that combo: the stove WILL fit in the teapot, but only without the nested bowl). The Ketalist has a 1L volume, but this stove has boiled water easily in less than the 3.5min time listed. I really put it to the test on my last trip, where the wind was blowing like crazy and I thought there was no way this stove was going to light. 1 click with the included striker and it fired right up (*Update: The little plastic ignitor failed on my second trip. Bring waterproof matches or a lighter for better reliability) . It stayed lit and boiled the water like a champ even with the crazy strong winds. I can't say enough about this stove. Every time I use it I fall even more in love with it.

UPDATE: Still my favorite stove! Just wrapped up a 3 day backpacking trip and used this thing for breakfast and dinner each day. Boiling water for Dehydrated dinners and instant oatmeal breakfasts and tea for 2 people over 3 days, this stove only used about 2/3 of an 8oz. canister. Pretty impressive for an open flame canister stove! My friends are always jealous of how easy this stove is to use, and several have switched from liquid fuel stoves to the Micro Rocket after camping with me.
