Personally I'd suggest looking into some of the alcohol stoves made for the ultralight hiking market, such as the Brasslite range, and making up a cooking set to fit your exact requirements from there. It may not be quite so neat as the Trangia models but weight and performance will be better and you will have something exactly tailored to your preferences.
works surprisingly well if you make another windsheild. I get a bit paranoid abiout the pots falling off, so i use spare tent pegs just in case a pot slips. really should make a close fitting windshield.not the lightest or fastest or most compact...but you gotta love 'em!
The swedish army ones are pretty big & heavy and they don't always nest together that well. but again, great idea!
Agree the Army ones are heavy and bulky. Made for squaddies is probably the reason. I used a mini trangia clone that was 30g lighter but actually better made (according to the guy in our group who was using the authentic mini trangia). I am not sure of the weight but perhaps getting the evernew DX windshield / multi stove to use with the burner unit of the mini trangia or even a honey stove with 4 wall setup. Not sure if these would be lighter with a Ti pot but the windshield of the mini trangia is not really a windshield worth having IME.
Personally I'd look elsewhere rather than use any trangia product again. they package the stuff quite well but too heavy and bulky to be of use for backpacking IMHO. Zen stoves is a good site that someone linked to. Some on here make caldera clones for use with homemade can stoves. The authentic caldera cones are pretty good if you are not the homemade type.
