It's a great stove a good backpacking friend of mine owns one he says it has never let him down even on cold mornings and it has a very stable base unlike the Giga Power and the MSR Pocket Rocket. I gave up canister stoves long time ago I use a tin can with denatured alcohol there is nothing to fail and it weighs 0.4 o/z. The one important thing with any canister stove is to keep the butane warm on cold mornings, and keep them out of the wind.
