Is it a particular size or adjustable? Either way, if it's still available could you post the measurements and also the weight (full). Also, how tall are you as this would give me a decent idea of whether it is suitable?
YES! Why on earth don't retailers do this already? Don't they realise they're losing custom? Not to mention being very poor customer service.
On a connected, even rant-ier note... I asked Snow and Rock whether the sizing/cut for the ME Ogre, Tupilak and Morpheus were the same (I'd only tried the Ogre) and after 3 days of waiting they finaly replied with the following email:
"Yes, they are the same sizing."
Useless w%&$£s! 3 days and they still couldn't be bothered to check!
Mountain Equipment and Alpkit on the other hand are accurate, extremely helpful and quick to reply.
Umm... as for the article - Mountain Equipment is usually cut larger than Montane in my experience.
Thanks for all the responses, really useful info. At the moment Im leaning towards the Primus Express Spider, but those Chinese stoves look tempting.
Anyone know how long the delivery time is from Hong Kong? (For the Cyclone)
That list is a bit misleading. When I put 'safe' and 'easy to use' top I was still thinking of liquid / gas differences. I do have experience of gas stoves so I feel comfortable enough with the other stoves mentioned. But I wlii look into the Trangia further before I buy anything. Cheers.
Funnily enough that's exactly how I thought it would be... and how I like my camping experiences to be. But with no prior experience and solo backpacking I'd rather not risk the yin setting fire to the yang if you get me.
