This is a terrific little stove. It will pack down very small in a hard-wearing stuff sack provided by MSR. Because this stove is multi-fuel it’s incredibly versatile, it will burn petrol, diesel, white gas, kerosene and others. The XGK will boil a litre of water in less than 2.5 minutes in my own experience. Some reviews have mentioned that because the fuel-pump has a plastic pump-arm it feels rather weak, it does but it’s incredibly strong in reality and keeps the weight down. There are three sizes of fuel bottle that I know of, all of them ideal for different lengths of expedition. This stove is not for those who are looking for gourmet camp food but it’s intention is to provide a rugged, near indestructible, any altitude stove, it will simmer food but it has to be very closely watched. I ought to add that this stove sounds like the after-burner of a Tornado jet, very loud indeed but a superb bit of kit. Buy the maintenance kit if you intend travelling to more hostile regions, that way you’ll never go wrong. Very highly recommended. *****
