5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Stove for a Camper, Prepper, Hunter or Backpacker, April 24, 2012
By 
This review is from: Solo Stove Wood Burning Backpacking Stove - Ultra Light Weight Compact Design Perfect for Survival, Camping, Hunting & Emergency Preparation.
I purchased my stove directly from the Solo Stove website. First of all the packaging is very impressive. My mailman apparently just started walking erect a few years ago. He's been known to find a way to destroy the most secure packaging out there. "Fragile", "Do Not Bend", those are just challenges! The stove itself is a great stove. I have many stoves; too many according to my wife. I have multiple sizes of white gas stoves, Iso Butane Stoves, Esbit Stoves, Alcohol Stoves, A Kelly Kettle...etc. I do not like having to rely on moving parts for my food preparation and water purification. This stove is the perfect compromise between weight, functionality, and strength. I plan to use mine mostly with a Trangia or Esbit alcohol stove. This combination gives me 1. No moving parts 2. Lightweight 3. Ease of finding fuel (Denatured Alcohol, Everclear, Yellow HEET) and 4. Clean burning. I also love the fact that I can always run the stove on wood, which is does very well, if need be or my adventures run longer than expected. Currently I'm using the stove with a MSR Alpine Tea Kettle, but I plan to switch over to a Trek 900, so everything nests nicely together. Stop pumping, priming, maintaining, lugging smelly white gas, worrying about stuck lintel valves, carrying Field Service Kits, and worrying.
