Would buy all over again
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
It works as well as the Jetboil canister stand. I have both, and have no preference between the two.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
simple, light and cheap
Does what it is supposed to
Sturdy and durable canister legs that perform the job they were intended to do.
CANT LIVE WITHOUT IT
It stablizes your stove!! it creates a bigger footprint!! BUY IT!!!
This stand does what it is expected to do. It supports your fuel cell and thus giving a solid cooking platform. It doesn't weigh much and folds up for storage. Fits just about any brand of fuel cannister.
doing its thing
Primus Canister Footrest and an 8oz MSR ISoPro canister. Pretty much a must-have for any piggybacked canister stove set-up. Increases stability measurably with a top-heavy pot full of water or food. $10 worth of insurance for when scooping your dinner out of the dirt is not an option.
Many other, better options
I got this, thinking it would be a good idea to have a canister support. This unit has mediocre construction, but the bigger problem is that it doesn't fit all canisters. It has multiple slots, but there is just enough difference in canisters that not everything has a tight fit, and without a tight fit, it seems to defeat the purpose. The other problem is that the wider base can actually make it harder sometimes to find a flat surface, since you need a larger flat area to make it work. Overall, not a great design. It seems to me that a tripod-style support that allows changing the length or angle of the legs would enable many more cooking options. I've given up on manufacturer solutions in favor of do-it-yourself canister supports made from wooden clothespins -- cheap and work better on many more surfaces. You should also bring zip-ties (or velcro) and an extra couple of thin tent-stakes, so you can anchor your canister/stove to the ground for the ultimate in stability.
will this work with msr isobutane cannisters...
will this work with msr isobutane cannisters also?
This stabilizer is designed to be compatible with any LP canister, but if you want to be extra sure, you can get the MSR Trillium stove base. In all reality, the MSR base is harder to justify as it costs more and weighs ~2 oz more. What a deal!http://www.backcountry.com/store/CAS0377/MSR-Trillium-Stove-Base.html
