lightweight remote canister stove
not very windproof but a windscreen is included it is not a big deal
I can not explain how much i am in love with this little backpacking stove. Unfortunately with something so small and convenient, there is a very tiny downfall and that is stability when it does not have a pan on top. If the gas line is bent in a specific direction, it almost tips over when removing the pan. Just be aware and make sure it is on the most flat surface you can find in the outdoors and you will be fine.
Was looking for a fairly light packable stove that would support larger pots and skillets for group hiking and this stove fits the bill.
Boils water quickly but adjusts down to a simmer for longer cooks or frying. Large pot stand handles larger cookware well. Like the ability to invert fuel canister for cold weather or faster boil but haven't tried this feature. Low profile makes it really stable and easy to shelter from wind.
windscreen seems a little flimsy but it worked well just not sure about long term.
Nice lovely stove
I don't know why Optimus doesn't get more attention for this little guy. It's fairly light weight and beautiful design. I actually enjoy opening it and closing it, brings me joy! I also LOVE the low center of gravity that this design affords. Often times you can't find a flat spot anywhere, or it's so darn windy everything wants to tip over. I didn't have any problems with this guy on a windblown "mountain" top in the Appalachians and other windy days. It is easy to light and I could simmer very easily, although with the thin Ti and AL camp cookware that's always a challenge. Having the ability to turn it upside down is a huge plus camping in the colder seasons.
Very minor, but the cute green paint they use on the adjustment lever (no primer used) chips off and ended up making a little bit of a mess. I chipped it off with the metal deflector that it comes with and now it's not a problem.
I buy the product to be used in philmont, on july. So far I liked because is realy light and compact. Based on the reviews I look forward to have a great experience with it.
So far, I like the product. No dislikes.
Love this little stove. Much more stable than having the burner on top of the fuel can. Easier to shield from the wind too.
this stove has nice legs that are attached that help the can when flipped be stable, this is the major reason i picked this
