A good remote canister stove, heading in the lightweight direction.
By Roger Caffin
First we had the Primus Eta Power stove, reviewed in our Stove Shootout series. A fine stove, but a heavy combination. One might suggest that the overall concept came from a traditional heavyweight backpacker. Then we got the Primus Eta Packlite stove: a reduced-weight version of the Eta Power, but the result was still a bit heavy for the fanatics, even though both of these stoves had good performance and low CO emission.
