    Primus Yellowstone Classic Trail Stove

    Primus Yellowstone Classic Trail Stove is rated 4.7273 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stove for less cash I opted to get this Primus stove instead of one of MSR's backpacking stoves, mostly because of the lower price. The classic trail stove can be found for around $25 and I was shopping on a budget. I will likely upgrade my stove in the future, but the Primus Classic Trail is a fantastic stove for the price. The stove boils water quick and packs up to a convenient size; which isn't as small as some stoves MSR offers, but is fairly compact and fits into my pack nicely. The included nylon/mesh sack is great. I don't think a hard case is necessary as the stove is fairly hardy and strong; I could not imagine it being damaged in my pack. Like one reviewer stated below, pots will not sit level on the burner. I opened up several of the Classic Trail stoves at the store and set them upside down on the shelf to see how level they were; I found that every stove had this fault. Your pots will only balance on three of the slabs. That being said, as long as you keep an eye on it, and move carefully around it (as you should with all stoves) I don't think you will run into any problems. The box advertises it to boil water in 3 minutes, and I have found this to be more or less, accurate. I have not kept track of how much fuel it uses, so I can not attest to the efficiency. However I have cooked several meals for two people on one 230g tank of gas over 3 days. It seems that using the stove causes the metal to develop rainbow and goldish discolorations. I haven't tried to clean it off at all, and there is no noticable change in performance from it. I'm not sure if this happens to other stoves, since this is the first one I've ever owned. But it seems to be purely cosmetic. The stove is a 2-piece design. The burner screws into the valve which then screws onto the gas cansiter. This type of design makes it a little annoying to remove the valve from the gas canister without spraying gas out. The flame control knob can be a little finnicky, and a small turn can result in a huge flame. But I don't think you need a very precise flame; it's not like you're going to use this thing to cook gourmet meals. I have had no trouble cooking anything. Overall, the Primus Classic Trail is in my opinion one of the best options for beginners like me, or someone who is looking for a high value stove at a low price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Stove Outstanding stove. I decided to purchase this as an alternative to my white gas stove, as I was tired of dealing with soot and white gas containers. I'm very pleased with this purchase, and it worked wonderfully on a back-country trip. No hassle. Very light. It just works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stove! I used this stove to cook for four days in the Colorado high country while backpacking in often wet conditions. It boiled water very quickly for the altitude we were at, and used our fuel efficiently. My pot was never in danger of tipping over, and it's super easy to clean, light, and pack! 100% recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent stove I have used this stove on two backpacking trips now and find it very easy to operate and clean. It stows away into a very small profile. I use a small backpacking pot with this stove, so even on the lowest temperature setting it is full flame contact to pot (i.e., high heat) so I was unsuccessful in achieving a simmering temperature. If you use larger cookware you could perhaps get more temperature range as it had the potential to crank up way higher than needed for my small pot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent stove I have taken this stove on several backpacking trips. It works well and provides greater stability than fold up stoves like the MSR's. However, it is also a little heavier and a little bulkier. I would still recommend this as a great backpacking stove.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, works. I've used this stove a bunch of times now and it's very reliable. The only reason I chose it over the pocket rocket is that it was cheaper and I didn't mind the extra ounces. I love how easy it is to set up and I think the burner style is more stable than others. My only complaint is that I wish the knob extended a little further so it was easier to turn without getting close to the burner with your fingers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bullet proof stove Great stove that works every time. Awesome temp control. It may not be the smallest or lightest on the market but reliability is more important to me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for ultra-lite backpacking I'm a member of a volunteer SAR team and needed a light weight stove for my 24 hour pack. It's easy to set up and quickly boils water. It nests in a std. stainless steel cup with the canister.
