Doesn't get more lightweight than a Super Cat. Pretty easy to use, just pour a little fuel in and light. Of course, it's pretty much just good for boiling water. Denatured alcohol is the fuel of choice and very easy to find.http://jwbasecamp.com/Articles/SuperCat/index.html
I had a Peak 1 multi-fuel for years. Then I took it apart to clean it once, after 6 years service, and must not have gotten it quite back together correctly. I lit it and it became a fireball..... so I drop kicked it across the yard and ran behind a tree. Luckily, it went out.... I bought a Coleman 533 like Homero and it works real nice. However, it will flame up right when you light it, which is normal with most Coleman stoves. For very light weight, and VERY versitile use, you might consider the Primus Omni-Fuel. Burns practically anything.
For extreme Ultralight backpacking I bring along my MiniBullDesign Elite.
Primus OmniFuel for the last 3 years. It works perfectly for me. I've never burned any of the dirty fuels, as I only use Coleman Fuel in it, but it's cool that it has the ability to burn other fuels.For extreme Ultralight backpacking I bring along my MiniBullDesign Elite.
I like this one. Not the lightest, or the best for doing anything but boiling water, but.........it works well, and I think it is cool!
Well, I'm home with my new stove...MSR Whisperlite! Going to try it out tomorrow out on the driveway....if you see smoke and flames off in the distance towards Brenham, I've blown up another stove...
