Re: XGK-II .... with kerosene
I have zero experience with Kerosene stoves so I'm curious why you like it for winter.

Comparing apples and oranges
I can tell you that the 1st Gen will exceed 100 hrs on 2xAA Lithiums. 2x2900 = 5800mah versus 4x1200 = 4800mah. So I'm gonna guess that worst case the Gen 3 will do about 80hrs on a set of b...

I've fallen in love with my SVEA123R
I've only had it for less than a year, but I really like the little bugger. I use it with the Optimus HE Weekender pot. I created a safe flashing windscreen for it. And I improved the priming b...

Re: Re: Ever wonder why nobody made an aluminum SVEA 123?
Aluminum, Titanium, and some insulators. Aluminum because it is lightweight, strong, conducts heat (too well) and can be made corrosion resistant. Insulators to control conducted and reflected heat...

Ever wonder why nobody made an aluminum SVEA 123?
I have. The self-pressurizing design of the SVEA is a very old concept. Seems like modern materials would enable the creation of a much lighter SVEA123-like stove. Gotta love the SVEA! The littl...

Re: Has anyone here switched to a quilt and liked it LESS than a regular sleeping bag?
I'm a side-sleeper and I would switch sides frequently during the night due to pressure points. During the roll-over, cold air would leak in. In moderate weather it was no big deal. But in cold...

Re: Say what now?
My point is that it is just a forum. I pointed out the Byte because it was such an obvious screw-up of a product. Somebody posted a really posh review of the Byte claiming it was the most wonderful...

Re: If I wanted reliable headlamp reviews...
Hmmmm, I'd recommend you not get too excited about that forum, after all they whole-heartedly recommended the PrincetonTech Byte when it first came out (and that was a miserable POC). Candle...

A big dissapointment
There was a place for a 2xAAA headlamp with a modern LED. Years back one of my favs was the Rock River sold by Target (later sold as the Enduro by Streamlight). But Streamlight was too lazy to upgr...

UL'rs are sooo funny sometimes
Seriously? A cozy is a handy cooking utensil. Squeeze your pimples, blow your nose, and shave your pits to make up for it.

Optimus/Primus? Svea 123R
It is the same weight as other white gas stoves, but with fewer moving parts. It is inherently more reliable over a very long history. It is very fuel efficient and the maximum heat output and flame a...
