I'm a fan of the Trangia 28 (the "Mini") despite a few minor drawbacks.
First, the good. The stove is the proven Trangia double-walled alcohol burner that has essentially been the benchmark "camp stove" in the UK, Western Europe, and Australia for decades. It is tough, easy to operate, virtually maintenance-free when used with the proper fuels, and offers a simmer-ring to control the heat output to a reasonable degree.
The pot is sized for solo use, and will cook a Ramen meal easily. The lid doubles as a small fry pan large enough to cook two eggs. The pot-lifter works well with both pot and pan.
The pot stand is very stable and holds both the pot and fry pan at the proper distance above the stove.
The whole thing stores inside the pot (with room for matches, a small sponge or towel, and a tiny bottle of soap if you like). The lid snaps firmly in place to hold it all together, making a compact package small enough to stow in your car's glovebox.
And now the bad (which is really not too bad). As mentioned above, the unit is rather heavier than the best ultralight alternatives. If gram-counting is your passion, this stove will feel like a brick. It is very durable however, and tossed in the toolbox of your truck, will bounce around for years until needed. It makes a great "just in case" piece of kit for this reason.
Also, the potstand is really just that: it holds the pot. Calling it a windscreen is optimistic at best. In any sort of wind you are going to need a separate screen or otherwise create a barrier with gear, lest the slightest breeze blow the flames in every direction.
All things considered, I love this little cookset and carry one in my truck. I don't generally use it for backpacking, but there's really no reason I couldn't.
