Coleman petrol stoves all the way Kell.

Fierce flame, easy to light, easy to get a refill

coleman are good yes but a little bulky and heavy

i prefer the msr fly best by far and you can weld with it its that fierce if you want it to be Very Happy

mine has been used and abused from the seafront chasing bass to the tops of a few of europes little snow capped hills

and has only let me down once and to be fair it was my fault and three years after i bought it msr replaced free of charge the part id 'broke'.
MSR wouldnt beleive i had managed to do what i had done. i managed to fuse the fuel line solid using old 4 star petrol the lead blocked the line and locked the cleaning tube in place. it was never designed to work with leaded petrol. hence the free replacment and a letter saying its the only unit ever returned Embarassed for a fuel problem.

ten years on its still going strong and something thats often overlooked its totally user servicable on the bank it runs of almost any flammable liquid parrafin alcohol meths petrol diesel etc and comes with a basic service kit when you buy it

try that with a coleman or when a gas stove freezes up if its damp
