Get this stove while you can!

MSR has discontinued this liquid fuel burning stove and now only make the canister burning version (WindPro). If you prefer liquid fuel stoves, this is a great stove. Simple. Lightweight. Easy to maintain. East to light.
BTW - as SOON as you see fuel in the burner when you are priming, turn the fuel OFF. Then light. You won't get a ball of flame.

Regarding the other reviews on this tent - read them, but don't give them much credit. Regarding the comment about not having "pegs"; Any tent you buy does not supply enough stakes for guy lines. This tent is so strong, the guy lines are not really needed except in the very worst of conditions (80+MPH winds)!! Regarding not being able to sit side-by-side - WHO CARES! sit end-to end! The tent is meant for bomber durability, not snuggling! Comparing it to a pup-tent?? Regarding difficult to set up...??? I have owned the older version of this tent for 12 years (virtually the same tent, except the old version has 2 doors) and it is remarkably easy to set up...by yourself! This tent can be pitched in a matter of less than 5 minutes solo. My MSR Fury equivalent tent (Moss Stardome) has served me for 12 hard-use years in the Colorado High Country and has NEVER failed me in any weather, summer or winter. I have slept through some of the nastiest wind storms with the MSR (Moss) tent as quiet as can be while my camp neighbor's tent violently whipped and slapped in the wind keeping them awake all night. If you want 4-season/Mountaineering toughness, durability and simplicity, in a 2-person tent, there is no other tent to own than the MSR Fury.
