I have used Trangia stoves for nearly thirty years and can say that they are trustworthy, reliable and very easy to use. I prefer them to all the multi-fuel and and gas stoves I have used over the years. With my Trangia stoves the food is usually cooking while other people are still pumping fuel bottles or unclogging jets. In the past I have occasionally travelled very lightweight with just the Trangia burner and found rocks or something else to balance my pot on over the flame, but this is really not to be recommended as the distance between the burner and pot is quite critial for maximum efficiency. Also, the burner unit works better when held slightly off the ground by a proper stove. The new Trangia Triangle that I have just bought is absolutly perfect as a camping stove. It is ultra compact, lightweight and stable. I can use pots of different sizes, both larger and smaller than the ones that fit in the larger Trangia stove. In future I will take the Trangia Triangle on both long and short trips with a Titanium pot for my perfect lightweight cooking system. My stove handles light winds reasonably well and certainly better than stoves without a windshield, but some folded aluminum foil really speeds things along in a breeze and adds almost no weight to the kit. A tip, especially when it is very cold: do not put too much fuel in the Trangia burner as it slows down the time it takes for the flame to reach maximum heat. I cannot recommend the Trangia Triangle highly enough.
