For most 3 season backpacking I dont even bring a jacket anymore since I bought this. I've used it with just a base layer and a rain shell over it for wind protection in sub 30 degree temps.Breathes just about as well as anything.It dries sweat quickly but it does hold water if you plan on doing any backcountry laundry. I'm 5'10'' 140lbs and wear a medium for a slim fit with enough room for a thin base layer.

I've owned this stove for a few years now with zero problems. Fuel economy is excellent for a 3 day weekend with a buddy I would bring one of the smaller 110ml cans at moderate altitude(5-10k) and have plenty at the end of the trip. Does not offer good wind performance. Even though it isn't recommended by those wishing to limit liability I use a tin foil wind screen. Just make sure radiated heat isn't cooking your fuel can. ceramic igniter insulation is delicate so keep it in its hard case provided. Might be worth it to locktite any hardware to avoid loosing the tiny screws. So far its the best ultralight canister stove I've found.
