  Trangia WestWind Stove - 52013



product code: CAMP2

No, don't get it. The cool part is the brass alcohol burner--the guts of the Trangia system. But where's the rest of the system? Instead of the real original genuine Trangia full kit, you get a fiddly, fussy, not super effective combination pot support and windscreen that you'll loathe every time you use it. The good news is, you still have the brass burner, and even though at $36, that's not a deal to write home about, it's a deal when you think of it as a gateway into the Full Fantastic Trangia system...which we also sell, and which comes with a killer pot support, windscreen, two pots, a lid/frying pan, and a pot gripper.
If you get this, you'll eventually get that. You need the pots, anyway--so get the cool hard-anodized aluminum Swedish ones that Trangia makes. You'll need a pot-gripper, and that, too, comes with the bigger its. You'l need a lid so you don't waste heat, and ditto.
We sell medium and large full Trangia kits. They are the easiest, cleanest, safest, most pleasant to use cook kits we've ever used, and we've used everything.

My first Trangia! Excellent memories! Mostly! October 24, 2016
Reviewer: Bill Rudersdorf from Houston, TX United States  
This was my first Trangia, almost twenty years ago. Alcohol stoves are great, easy, completely quiet, with no MSR wearout fiddley parts. This kit needs a simple augmentation, though. Alcohol stoves are more susceptible to wind than most others, so you need to buy or rig a windscreen unless you just know that you can set up out of the wind or that there will be none. An easy fix, and you're cookin'.

Trangia April 15, 2014
Reviewer: Ralf Grosser from Muehltal, Hessen Germany  
I have used just the Burner in sevaral different configurations. With an original windscreen, With a windscreen for Esbit tablets, that a modified.  As a minimalist stove, you just place the burner on the ground, with four or three Aluminium tentpegs nailed around it to hold your pot.

works well, easy to operate August 1, 2012
Reviewer: Ed from Portland, OR United States  
Alcohol fuel stoves are great because they're inexpensive, safe, last forever, and are low tech.

I like this stove better than the homemade pop-can style because you can put it out without waiting for all the fuel in the stove to burn out.

For most people that means you'll use less fuel, and for a longer trip that means it's actually lighter than the ultralight stove.

Pro tip #1: put the stove in your pocket when you first get up in the morning and it will be easier to light once its warm.

Pro tip #2: remove the o-ring from the lid, fill it half way with alcohol, and it becomes a second mini-stove!

Rad little stove March 26, 2012
Reviewer: Paul from Lee Vining  
Got this stove as a present. Simple, efficient, quiet, clean - all good things, all in one stove, and nice looking to boot. The simmer ring really works. Melted snow the other day for some Miso mid-ride in the Mono Basin, and the Trangia completed the job with just over half it's fuel left. Screw the lid on and ride or walk to the next scenic vista without having to refill. Works best in wind if you use an old MSR windscreen or something to block the wind and focus heat on the pot. Thanks for carrying this great little stove.
