Perfect Stove, Don't Expect Peace and Quiet
I love this stove. It is very reliable and always gets the job done no matter what the conditions- rain, wind, freezing temperatures, no problem. The only drawback is it is a little loud, but this doesn't bother me. I used a MSR Whisperlite before this, which was quieter, but this one gets results faster in the winter especially for melting snow. Also simmer isn't really happening, even at it's lowest it is going pretty strong. But if your objective is to get water heated fast, you have found your man.

I have been all over the world and this is the stove I would pic
My other stove was a Peak 1 and this one beats it, hands down. The versatility of using any fuel can't be praised enough. I think it should be sold as a package with a 1.5l MSR pot though.

Very Versatile
I have used this stove on the base camp on Mt. Adams in whiteout conditions and worked like a dream. My stove has been on countless campouts and multiples week long backpacking trips all over the inland northwest. Have never had a complaint. In very windy conditions the windshield should be used especially while priming the stove. Would recommend to anyone who wants a reliable fast boiling stove.

THE Stove
This is the stove. This stove will burn about anything. Easy to use. You dont have to throw away empty propane canisters and go run to the store for another one ISO pro Fuel approx $1.00 / Oz. Gas @3.00/Gallon cost you about .70cents to fill a 30oz can... Happy Trails

Awsome stove
This thing rocks. A little pricey perhaps, but once again you get what you pay for. I think its rather light in weight. I haven't tried all the other crazy "whisperlite" and "featherlight" stoves out there. I wanted something to do the job, and not skimp on the flame output, and this thing delivers. I've only had it out a few times so I can't really give a good review on durability, but it looks like it could take some abuse. You can burn almost anything, like most people have posted. I haven't tried the paint thinner yet though. He he. The ONLY thing I can possibly see wrong with this thing, is the fuel pump thing being plastic. Baby it I guess, or replacements are like thirty bucks. Anyways great stove
