Small, hot, and light. Some of the information in the above product description applies to the more deluxe Optimus Crux i.e. the burner head doesn't fold down on the Crux Lite, but the pot stabilizing prongs fold in, as does the flame control handle. It gets almost as small as the Crux and is lighter. Weight 2.5 OZ.

What I really like about this stove is: The burner head spreads the flame out, and I can cook a soup or stew on simmer and not scorch the food. It's still supposed to be the hottest stove in it's class with 10,200BTU. Dee

Question for the first to review this? I know this is supposed to be the hot new filter. I wnet to MSR web-site and looked at instructions. They say do not pump any kind of dirty water throught it----did you try----or is it pristine water only?

Also the instructions show a 9 step back-flushing process that you must do every 8 liters or one day. It looked complicated and I go with groups on overnight trips where we pump way more than 8 liters at a time. Question 2. How did you do on the backflushing? thanks, Dee
