Great personal boiler.

Pros:
-neoprene insulator w/ strap (handle)
-rubber sipping lid (also helps retain warmth)
-ingenious heat-soaking foil stove design
-efficiency (I was entirely satisfied with the amount of liquid one fuel canister boiled. several days worth for one person.)
-space saving
-light

Cons:
-none, so far, in my adventures.
-don't depend on automatic igniters (think of your backyard bbq. bring another ignition source)

Addressing others' issues:
I haven't flown with it, however, the system is ubiquitous and finding the $4 fuel canister in another city doesn't seem difficult (annoying perhaps). Nor have I had to cook in negative temps (freezing, yes, and it did fine. Melting snow is always going to require much more fuel than heating liquid -- see thermodynamics)
