When purchasing anything I always look for the best price and best quality. At first I bought the Optimus Nova+ after reading many good reviews. Its not a bad stove but it didnt wow me and I had troubles starting it up and keeping it going, I believe mine was defected. I returned the Nova + and exchanged it for this one. Backcountry has amazing customer service and will keep you very satisfied each and everytime. I havent used the MSR XGK EX on any special expeditions but for the test run was perfect! Flawless! And I say this product is quality.
