      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Desparately Seeking New Stove

Recommended Posts

MSR Pocket Rocket is light, hot, simple to operate and reliable. And pretty cheap. Snow Peak Giga stove is also very good but more expensive.


If'n you want an expedition stove there is none better than the MSR XKG II.

It is worth noting that with canister stoves the price of the stove is pretty insignificant compared to the amount you will pay for the canisters over the life of the stove (~$40 stove vs. $4/canister). They sure are lightweight/small/convenient though. I like my SnowPeak gigapower stove.


I use a coleman propane stove ( snugtop.gif camping) more than any other stove though. wink.gif

Don't get an XGK unless your only going to melt snow or boil water. They are pretty useless for cooking but last forever and are super reliable.


As for using gaz stoves in cold temps...
