Performance - As with most other decent stoves, this one can boil water quickly, so that's not news. What it does do, however, that many do not is take the flame down to the lowest simmer. This is a great feature if you are doing some serious cooking that requires precise flame control. I've found the flame spread on this stove to be relatively narrow, so it's a good thing you can dial the flame down so as not to completely scorch what you are heating. The stove is extremely stable, with pot supports that can handle larger size pots and pans. It has a self-cleaning jet that has worked flawlessly when using standard white gas, and has been very reliable.
Size - It folds up pretty small and it is light enough, but it's still larger in these dimensions than the smallest stoves out there if only by a little. I don't store mine in my cook kit as it won't fit; that's OK by me, though, as there's always something in my pack that I can fit in there to save space.
Flexibility - As with the international version of the Whisperlite, this stove can burn different fuels, some with the same jet that uses white gas, and others with the included jet for heavier fuels like kerosene or diesel. This is an nice feature, I think, and makes it valuable component of your disaster preparedness kit in addition to regular camping and backpacking duty.
Noise - You've heard it before, and it's a fact with this stove: this puppy is noisy as all get out. Embarrassingly so, sometimes.Read more ›
Introduced in 1998 the MSR Dragonfly took cues from it's older well known brother the XGK, meant for high altitude mountaineering purposes, and the Whisperlite, a no fuss basic stove meant to heat whatever you wanted to throw at it in a fairly short time. Constructed of a combination of aluminum, copper and steel weighing 395grams the MSR Dragonfly unpacks nicely by means of 3 folding feet, and a flexible fuel injection line which handily clips to the side of the stove when not in use. Setting it up is simple, flipping over the hinged fuel cup and connecting it to a MSR Fuel bottle which are sold separately which are offered in varying sizes. I use 2 591mL fuel bottles which last me 1-2 weeks a piece, depending on the frequency of use, the altitude of operation, and the type of fuel that is being burned.
The MSR Dragonfly has the capability of burning White Gas, a highly volatile clear fluid known as Naptha (see what else it is known by other various names around the world) and unleaded gas through one jet, and Kerosene and Diesel fuel through another jet which is included and easily replaced on the stove itself. This allows the traveler to be sure they will be anywhere in the world and be able to get a hot meal into their bodies at the end of a day without much issue.Read more ›
All of these liquid burners are using principles of design that are more or less identical to my old Optimus 8R or the even older Svea 123. There's a pressurized fuel tank. But most new designs have a built in pump that fits into the fuel bottle. That's a neat space/weight saving innovation. And the pump will get you up and running faster than using heat from the stove to pressurize the fuel tank. The burners are more or less identical to the little brass bell shape of the older stoves with an identical "roarer plate" to spread the flame and a brass "jet" that regulates the fuel flow. Aside from that, it appears that the only changes over four decades have been some clever packaging of the burner and pot supports to get weight down to a minimum. I guess it's proven hard to improve on those old designs that were relatively cheap, very reliable in the field, and seemingly indestructible over time.
I chose the Dragonfly for a few reasons.....
