    Trangia Mini Trangia 28-T Backpacking Stove is rated 4.5556 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be very very quite... I love this little stove! As many people have already stated, it is all but silent while it burns and heats up water faster than other alternative fuel stoves I have used in the past. It works well with denatured alcohol/paint thinner as well as high proof booze (think ever-clear or high proof rum). This is a huge advantage as you can find some form of fuel for it anywhere around the world and don't have to spend your time looking for an outfitter, just walk into a hardware store or liquor store and you're set. You can heat water for a meal on just a couple of oz. of fuel (as little as an oz. if you only need 4 cups of water or less hot) and it stores about 3oz in the burner itself. In the summer months when it's just going to be me and maybe one or two other friends I grab this stove over my other choices and it's a no brainer for day hikes do to how light it is. If I'm traveling with a larger party or in the winter when I'm going to be melting a lot of snow, this is not a good choice. Go with a Multi-fuel for winter and/or a canister stove for groups. As far as this specific Trangia, I'm not a big fan of the pot and the lifter is all but worthless, but the pot holder/wind screen works OK. It can hold a pot as big as the MSR Alpine 2L pot with no problem. It's a little wide for some of my solo Titanium pots but if you bend the tops of the peaks down in a bit, it holds them fine. I made a little wire pot holder that weighs a fraction of the one provided and just use the burner when I'm soloing usually, so I'm not too worried about this. I would definitely suggest adding a tinfoil wind-screen if there is any breeze at all. The burner, being made out of brass, is practically indestructible, however the other components can get a bit squished if they're abused (they don't like it if they are in the top of your pack and it takes a tumble down the mountain on top of them) though they can be "popped" back into shape without much problem. If you don't already have a Trangia I would highly recommend this set; if you already do have one, it's probably not worth getting, unless you are just looking for another burner. (Suggestion: let the stove warm up for about 20 or 30 seconds before you put your pot on top to allow it to really get rolling. It seems to help it burn more efficiently.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from bomp-proof stove Love this alcohol stove (at least the burner, anyway). The burner is bomp-proof and can be kicked around like a hockey puck and still work well. I especially love the cap with O-ring that allows you to save for later any fuel that didn't burn up. No waste, and no other alcohol stove can do that! I haven't had much luck with the simmer ring but still bring it along because it's the easiest way to extinguish the flame. This little stove is especially efficient at boiling small amounts of water--perfect for freezer bag cooking that calls for only a cup or two of boiled water. It does require a bit of extra care because the flame is invisible in daylight and you can easily burn your hand or sleeve, but most get used to an alcohol flame quickly and won't have any problems. The pot stand is a different story. I'd love to see Trangia ditch this heavy/bulky pot stand and adapt one of the widely-available collapsible titanium pot stands instead. I use one made by a small online company but REI offers one here on their website. The collapsible ti pot stands fold flat into a package approximately 5" x .5" and weigh about 4oz. But I truly believe the whole kit is worth buying just to get the burner and grabber. Use your ti pot and collapsible stand if you prefer. Benefits of the Trangia Alcohol Burner: -It allows you to save any unused fuel left in the burner. -Denatured alcohol is cheap and widely available. -Denatured alcohol evaporates when spilled and won't ruin your pack like white gas can. -Denatured alcohol burns super clean (no sooty pots in your pack). -No more cleaning fuel lines or injector valves. -No tools required to keep it going. -No waking your camp mates with the sound of a jet engine as your stove fires up. This burner is consistent with what most of us are looking for in the backcountry--peace and quiet, reliability, and maintenance-free simplicity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stove with 1 modification. This is a great stove and is perfect for heating/boiling water for tea, coffee, pasta, MRE's, dehydrated meals, etc. I've had this stove for 2 months and have used it many times now. One thing I was worried about was efficiency at altitude and wind. The efficieny at altitude is just fine (used it for 3 days in Desolation a bit above 9000', I used about a 1/4 oz more of fuel for making pasta and making pancakes. The temp control allows you to make pancakes or scramble some eggs but, it does take some practice to figure out the perfect position on the simmer ring. This stove does need a wind screen which is extremely easy to do yourself or you can buy one. I made mine out of two pop cans I sadly found on the trail. It helped alot on a bike trip along the coast. It's decently light and all the components (except fuel bottle) packs into the included pot, which is nice and compact. Easily cleaned too. If you're looking for the MOST reliable stove get the Trangia.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet, pretty quick boil, easy to clean I purchased this stove purely because the fuel (methylated spirits) can be purchased anywhere in the world and special propane/butane bottles are not required. I am from Australia, but live in UK currently, and I mostly camp internationally. As I never know where I will be next I wanted a stove that I would always be able to find fuel for. It burns nice and quietly compared to the roar of more technical stoves, is easy to light and clean, brings 800ml water to the boil in about 5-6mins. It compacts to a nice portable size with a pot and pan encasing it, and serves my purpose brilliantly. It's quite affordable. Only annoying thing is the pan handle is a bit flimsy. But overall love the stove.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite cookset! I've backpacked with a lot of stoves, from homemade alcohol stoves to Coleman and MSR behemoths, but this is surely my favorite yet. I prefer alcohol stoves for my purposes, day hikes and multi-day backpacking at altitudes up to 10k feet. The Trangia is simple, compact, effective, and is very well made. Yes, it's a wee bit heavier than other alcohol stoves, but it's still very light and it's built to last, and has some useful features that homemade jobbies lack. The simmer ring is a nice feature (which you may be lacking in a homemade stove)and makes it safe and easy to regulate or extenguish the flames. With the screw-on cap i can store enough fuel for a day hike lunch or dinner and secure leftover fuel afterwards, another feature I like that I didn't have in my homemade stoves. The pot grabber seemed flimsy when I first got it but in use it's very secure, I can use it as a handle and drink right from the pot. Cooking for two may be difficult in this pot if you're doing more than boiling water for freeze-dried meals, but I guess it depends on what you're making. If you want to carry another pot, this set will nest inside a grease pot, MSR Alpine Bowl, or Snow Peak Titanium bowl. In mine I keep a small sos pad, a Swedish firesteel, a handkerchief, and a foil windscreen. As with any alcohol stove a windscreen is a must. The pot stand is great as a pot stand but a homemade windscreen will be a huge help. Overall I would recommend this set to any backpacker who needs a simple, lightweight, compact, uber-reliable, maintenance free stove and cookset combination.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Minimalist Stove All I can say is this stove got me from Georgia to Maine on my Appalachian Trail thru-hike in 2011. During my 118 day hike, this stove was easy, light, and cooked hundreds of meals flawlessly. If you are looking for a simple, light stove that burns a variety of fuels and is useable in mild weather, get the Trangia. I loved it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backpacking Stove The Trangia replaced my Jetboil. I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable with using propane, but wanted a light weight stove. I read alot of reviews before I settled on this one. The mini-Trangia is a scaled down version of their more popular stoves. I wanted something small so as not to take up too much room in my pack. This unit works perfectly. It comes with a no nonsense brass alcohol burner that is completely fool proof. No moving parts so no worries that it will fail in the backwoods. Just pour in alcohol and light. Water boils in under five minutes. Very happy I made the switch!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from love it! I bought this to use for solo car camping or backpacking. It works great and prepared meals for 2 of us quite easily. It's lightweight and easy to light. However, it is challenging to adjust the temperature. I needed a wind screen and will use one in the future with this stove. It is the only one I've ever used as I am new to camping and backpacking so I don't have any other stove experiences to compare this one to yet. I love it!
