Backpacking Stove Options

Hi! I am looking for a good backpacking stove. I am looking for it to be reliable in a wide range of conditions (mainly 3-season backpacking). I would love it to be relatively lightweight and compact. I would really like to only have one stove for backpacking, and I am looking for a stove that could last me a really long time, and could be used for a wide range of activities like thru-hiking and car camping. I am not into alcohol stoves or wood burning stoves. I am hesitant about canister stoves because of the ability to recycle them, however they are much lighter than white gas stoves. I have used white gas stoves on a majority of my backpacking trips, but never owned one. I would like it to be able to simmer, and work well at altitude. Thank you!
