high altitude, no regrets!

fast eating means HAPPY times! there's not much else to say oh the heat sink in this is so wonderful... all in itself the item is going to left you wondering why is it that I used something else ALL THIS TIME!!!

Responded on

I spend most of my time in the Ecuadorian Andes (cooking at 10,000-15,000 feet) and this is my "go to" stove. I've also used it on weeklong trips in Peru's Cordillera Blanca with similar high altitudes. Pros: fast setup, fast cool, the boil champ! Cons: the boil champ simmers poorly and won't accept other pots or pans. If you want something hot in a hurry at high altitude, look no further. While I still use my MSR Whisperlite International at lower altitudes or if I have lots of time to cook, I prefer to sleep than tinker with it at high altitude.
