This is a fine little burner. It is light weight and provides enough heat for just about any "normal" camping meal. While you wouldn't think it, this stove is fairly stable (level surface is the key). It's no old school Colman camping stove, but it is more than adequate for a small group (2-4) on a camping trip. Heating is uneven (mainly in the center of the pan/pot), but if you are good with cookware this isn't an issue.

Anyone had an issue with footprints when it rains?

Mine acts like a collection basin under my tent during rain events. Even with the fly all the way down to the ground, water still seems to pool between the tent bottom and the footprint. It doesn't happen with a tarp. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar.

No pun intended, but this fan is cool. Four D-cell batteries makes it a little heavy (maybe 5 pounds) but the weight is worth it for a nice breeze inside a warm tent. I use this fan primarily inside a Rock 22 tent, though I have placed it on the nightstand and experienced favorable results. It's not a household box fan (obviously), but it gets the job done. Air flow is in one direction (down), the bright LED light is sufficient for reading and the battery life is as advertised. The d-ring is sufficient for suspending this fan from inside any decent tent - the magnet will work if you don't have a ceiling loop. Overall this is a great fan and well worth the $20 (USD).

For starters, this is a nice steel pot set. Obviously it isn't weightless, but isn't heavy in my opinion. I didn't think it would be, but the grabber is stable. Despite other comments to the contrary, I would NOT use the pot lids for a frying pan. The lids are thin (read: uneven heating) and you can burn food onto the lid. If you are in a pinch, the lid will work as a frying pan, but I would recommend purchasing something designed for that purpose. Overall though, the pots are very nice and worth the investment.
