I bought this and compared it with Pocket Rocket, SnowPeak Giga, and Coleman Peak canister stove. First, this stove is FAR more stable when it comes to holding a can or pot or pan. The stove boiled 2 cups of water 45 seconds to a minute faster than the others. (4700 feet) This stove has far better at flame control (simmering) than the others. The SnowPeak Giga and PocketRocket cool down faster. (able to touch metal to put away). In my opinion, the stability, the faster cook time, and ability to simmer makes the 3 or 4 extra ounces in weight ok with me. I like it!

The pump has been great for me. I have used it in bitter cold and hot weather. No problems. I do perform periodic preventative maintenance and corrective servcie. (PMCS).

I own both a Pocketrocket and Wisperlite International. Both are great and I use both, but both have their place. As for the Wisperlite, It just performs every time. Hot weather, cold weather, rainy weather, it just performs. You should practice a few times with the stove before you actually use it on the trail. The initial flame at priming and startup will take practice, but after a few times, you will have it down. The Pocketrocket works great and is VERY easy to use, no priming etc......unless you are faced with very cold weather and not so cold weather if the canister is about out of fuel. When I get ready for a weekend trip, and I have to try to decide which stove to take. I shake the gas canister and say to myself, Is the weather going to be bad? cold? Is there enough gas in this to make it? Hmmmmmm. Better not risk it. Wisperlite International.
