Whisperlite always Reliable
This has been a reliable stove for me for a decade of packing and trekking. The whisperlite is quiet and has an adjustable flame. I often use the foil shield to keep the fuel economy at its highest by protecting the flame from the wind.
When priming the bowl be aware of how much fuel you had emptied into it before you add spark, you can have quite the little flame burst if your not paying attention (think nylon melting flair). I have run this stove through any fuel I have come across while traveling and she keeps making hot food.
At higher elevations this stove is a must and kicks my canisters stove arse where I cannot get a full canister to burn and burns weakly. At elevation the whisperlite rules. A couple of large bottles and you can cook for a week.
