One for Aidan :)

The Primus OmniLite Ti stove is on offer at Massdrop. Looking at AU$188 delivered which seems a lot to me but then I am not into these flame throwers :)

For something a little more gentle in the bush ... they also have the Snow Peak Litemax Titanium stove as a drop. Looking at around AU$69 delivered.

It is about half the RRP of the Primus in Australia. I am planning on getting one as it is one of the greatest stoves I have ever used.

I've had a Omnilite for a while now.

My only real complaint is when using kero, my usual fuel, it takes more priming than some stoves.

My reading about the stove on other sites, suggests its to do with the lack of metal to heat up and retention of said heat.

Whilst I like the stove for its "toy" factor and believe it makes a good base camp option, for my cycle touring I'm much more likely to reach for an alcohol stove option.

I've been using a Trangia for a number of years, appreciating its lack of need for maintenance, but will likely jump to a Caldera option at some stage .

I've been thinking about it for a while now but haven't quite determined what will offer me the utility of two trangia pots and kettle.

It more the Trangias bulk penalty rather than the weight penalty that keeps me considering a Caldera system. :)
