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
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.
