The MSR Dragonfly is a great stove for expeditions because of its heat output. The convenience of having good flame control makes it simple to prime and simmer so you'll find it just as useful for camping in the uk as melting snow in the Himalayas. The adjustable flame control on the Dragonfly allows precision burner adjustment from match light sized up to roaring inferno. This will take a variety of fuels including unleaded coleman fuel, petrol, diesel and kerosene.
Non-stick cooker with gas burner rather than meths burner. With the windshield in place this makes a very efficient set up allbeit a bit heavy. Great for groups as the flame is more controllable and visible than with meths. Weighs 1080g.
