A must for backpacking.
Lightweight, durable and easy to pack. No one should go without one of these bad boys. Many back-country spots in Utah do not allow campfires and you'll need a lightweight alternative to cook meals, this is that alternative. Also when backpacking in winter sometimes fuel for camp fires is not available or too wet to get a good fire going. The MSR camp stove is perfect for all cooking needs in the back-country or just in the foothills .

Tiny but powerful!
This stove is amazing. It's small and lightweight yet packs a punch. I was impressed by how fast it boiled water. I used it for a weekend and still had fuel left over. It fits neatly into the camp pots for it so it's easy to pack.

It really is a small and powerful appliances!
It really is a small and powerful appliances! Weight only 86 grams! This little bit of weight is almost negligible! Although very small, but his fire is very fierce! Boil 1 liter of water about 4 minutes or so, is a rare, light weight, firepower outdoor stoves! Importantly, it is cheap! Recommended buy! Very good!

My favorite summit stove
The size and weight are just incredible, and it's been quite reliable. The construction is solid and confidence-inspiring. Like most stoves it benefits greatly from some sort of windscreen when used in gusty conditions.

They were really helpful and lasted the whole trip. I would recommend these for any camping trip. They were also light in weight and didn't take up much space.
