Thank you for your comments, suggestions and support
I just got one of the Brasslite Solo stoves…. The weight of my brasslite stove is 1.2 ounces, including the simmer ring. It is
very well made and my initial tests are very positive. I have fired it up a couple of times here at home and it has a very even flame pattern, burning 100% of the fuel in the chamber even with the simmer ring in use. With only some crude tests done this week, it is quick to pressurize and boiled 20 ounces of water in my Snow Peak Titanium pot in approximately 4 minutes with less than a fluid ounce of fuel. I tested the stove and pot support with up to 20 pounds of weight on it and it stood up with no problems. I am planning on posting an owners report on www.backpackgeartest.org as soon as I get it in the field for some use. I am going to be on the AT this coming weekend so look for an initial report very soon after that. The report will include both field and shop test results.
