Don't bother if it's wind,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trangia Mini Cookset With Spirit Burner (Sports)
Although the Trangia is of similar quality to the larger unit, it's main fault is when windy the flames blow everywhere and the burner loses it's efficiency. I could not get water to boil. The larger Trangia which I have used for years and love, works better in wind as it blows the flame directly onto pan/kettle. I will try a home made foil wind guard next time. It really is tiny and great to slot in when travelling light and space is of paramount importance.

For the size and weight this Trangia is unparalleled. It weighs complete with burner about 40 grams more than a Crusader cup does on it's own. Yes the stove does need shielding from the wind but the Vargo aluminium windshield works well, packs away inside the unit & only adds about 35 grams to the total weight.

Which lightweight cooker would work in the wind? I don't know any.
Bring some kitchen foil, problem solved. Hiking requires being handy sometimes
