Just a short post here on the top ten or so lightest upright canister stoves. Yes, I know, there are 11 on the list. The MSR Micro Rocket has actually been discontinued, but I kept it on the list just because there may be some close out deals on it.
So, without further ado, here is the list:
I might be missing something; I don't have every stove in the known universe (yet), but this should be a pretty good list of the lightest upright canister stoves. No, I didn't include any remote canister or integrated canister stoves on this list. That's the subject for another post another day.
I like compiling information (I guess that's why I have a blog, Adventures in Stoving). Sometimes seeing all the info laid out side-by-side can be helpful if one is trying to decide between different pieces of gear.
Now, each to his or her own, and hike your own hike. Some value pot stability. Others focus solely on weight. Still others want convenience and then there are those who value reliability over all else. I've added a few comments that will hopefully give some information to each type of person. Is it a bit limited? Well, it's a chart. There's only so much one can cram in there before the chart just doesn't work any more. It's supposed to be a summary, right? But not to worry, I'm working on a full length post.
In the mean time, those desiring further information may find the following links useful:
