  • Matthew H. Scranton PA

    Likes: I bought this stove because it's a classic and because I can't get behind the one-time-use canister mentality. It's easy to use, the fuel is readily available, the fuel costs are low, and the fuel economy is high. The stove is was it is - dated, not super small, or super light, but I like it just the way it is.

    Dislikes: No complaints.

  • Mark K. Hudsonville MI

    Likes: Burns nice and hot. After reading the directions once to set it up, I never had another question how to operate it.

    Dislikes: Typical white gas heating element that produces a small amount of soot during start up. Didn't bother me as I expected it.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Bomb proof, very dependable, can be fixed in the field if there is an issue. This is a great stove for canoe camping and winter camping. Contrary to some reviews, it can be throttled down for simmering.

    Dislikes: Too heavy for backpacking.

  • Roger F. Springfield OH

    Likes: I do a lot of bicycle camping and this little stove is just perfect..

    Dislikes: L love this item no complaints

  • Ashley M. flagstaff AZ

    Likes: Sper light for backpacking and worked extremely quickly

    Dislikes: A little unstable until you put a pot on top to weigh it down

  • Ryan L. Duvall WA

    Likes: Bought my second WisperLite in 20 years. This is only becasue a friend borrowed mine and lost, not because of any defect. I looked at fancier stoves and even though I can now afford to upgrade I don't see any reason to spend more money.

    This is an awesome stove. I've made tea with it at top of Mt. Rainier and made heated up lunch hiking on the Oregon coast. I overhauled it twice in 20 years with kits from MSR. It has been a reliable stove on all my advnetures.

    Dislikes: No build in espresso maker(ha). No dislikes!

  • Jeffrey B. Silverdale WA

    Likes: Assembles easily. Lights off quick and safely. Works fast.

    Dislikes: I wish it collapsed to a smaller bundle

  • Travis D. Red Bluff CA

    Likes: This thing is tough, practically bulletproof. It burns really hot and is cheap to run since white gas is very inexpensive. It is also very reliable even when it is cold and my canister stove will not work.

    Dislikes: Just a little too big to fit inside my camp pot and the ball of fire you get if you are not careful when starting it up can be alarming, especially if you are cooking under a tent vestibule.

  • Ray H. Edmond OK

    Likes: Easy to use, lightweight stove. Comes with everything you need except the fuel bottle. Instructions/User's Manual in multiple languages.

    Dislikes: Nothing negative to say.

  • James B. Winter Springs FL

    Likes: Nice stove. Pretty light, sturdy, with a wide range of heat. What more can you ask for.

    Dislikes: It bugs me how close the bottle of fuel is to the stove/flame, but all backpacking stoves are like that.

  • Shawn M. Oakland TN

    Likes: Very durable stove. Works great in conjunction with the heat reflector and wind guard. Make sure you let it cool down sufficiently after use (the bottom stays quite hot for a while).

    Dislikes: The first half dozen uses produced a lot of black burn-off.
