I have been a liquid gas stove guy for a while and decided to go back to the canisters to save some weight, and since the weight was my main concern I bought this stove. It is insanely light and compact. I figured this little stove would work well but would not be able to match my dragonfly in pure BTU output (seeing my dragonfly does a great imitation of the space shuttle on launch). To my surprise this little stove was able to boil water in just about the same time! There are a couple of things that you have to watch out for, the burner area is very small so you can't just put your pot on the stove and forget about it, the stove will scorch your pan. Also if you buy this stove buy the windscreen, you will need it. If you are into light and small this is the stove for you.
