    Pathfinder alcohol stove

    Posted by Kev on 2nd Jul 2021

    Find this stove very good it takes longer to prime than a trangia but has more than twice the longevity burn time,had no issues with lighting it or leaks just make sure it’s standing upright in your pack,as always excellent service from HH totally recommend the product and HH.

    Not impressed

    Posted by guzziowner on 22nd Nov 2019

    When the fuel is low it's almost imposable to light, so defeates the reason for a large tank as you need to carry more fuel to top it up.. you need a wind sheld of some form, to keep the flame controled the o-ring does not seal (not an issue I've never had with a Trangia) have now replaced the ring with one from Trangia which looks (at home) to solve its leaking

    Update for my initial review

    Posted by David on 10th Nov 2019

    I took the stove to Wales for an overnight in the Berwyns. It worked flawlessly for the afternoon warming food and boiling water. During the evening bad weather set in, strong winds and heavy rain. It failed to stay lit no matter what I did with it. I preheated the base flooded the lip and lit it, nothing would keep it going. I messed about with it for over an hour! Luckily I had my trangia triangle, poured the remaining meths into it from the pathfinder. It lit first time and I had my evening meal. Tried the pathfinder in the morning and the wind still kept blowing it out. When I got back to the car, I put this into the bin on the carpark. Waste of time and money.

    okay but look at the alternatives too

    Posted by David on 10th Aug 2019

    I already own the trangia and esbit triangles. Love the simplicity and lightweight when I can't light a fire or don't want any smoke. The large capacity of this appealed to me. It's at least double+ of a trangia burner. This version has the rubber seal like a trangia and is so far leakproof. The simmer ring works, just tested it on some chorizo and the flame reduces well. Out of the box the windshield didn't sit right on the burner. It wobbled and was very unstable. After tweaking it I tested my esbit ti pot and stanley adventure pot. Both fit well. The stanley sort of slots into the shield because it has the angled base. I tested lighting it half and completely full on a cold/windy day with no issues using a ferro rod. It takes longer to prime than a trangia. I tested this and the triangle outside 8* and breezy. The triangle was 18minutes to boil 600ml and this was 21minutes to a rolling boil using water from a bottle in my vehicle and the stanley pot with the lid. The trangia triangle is faster to the boil but this holds more fuel. If you just want a quick brew stove the triangle is better value. This would be okay for quick food and a few brews overnight etc..

    Brilliant Kit

    Posted by Si G on 15th Aug 2017

    Like all of the other pathfinder stuff, this top notch! no parts to go wrong except the sealing ring and apparently a universally available trangia sealing will work just fine. lighting is very easy, just lift as tilt so a bit of fuel comes out on to the top, place wind shield on and light through the gap. it takes a few minutes to get up to working temperature. its a touch unstable if using pots on top of the windshield. the simmer ring is only really usable as a snuffer if using windshield and mine has a couple of sharp edges, easily sorted. I use mine with bio ethanol (from B&Q) and it works great.

    Difficult to light

    Posted by Pestweazle on 26th Nov 2016

    I must declare that I have posted a previous review. This is an update. When this stove is only partially filled with fuel it is really difficult to light. The fuel is so far down the central well that there is a problem of lack of oxygen to facilitate the burn. The slightest breeze puts the flame out. So if (as I did) you think that one fill will do you for say a full 24 hours then you could be wrong as anything less than a full stove is a devil to light out in the wilds. You need extra fuel to pour around the top of the stove. I like the idea of this stove so I bought one; however I think that the better option is a Trangia burner and a Trangia triangle or an Esbit triangle. I have been using Trangia burners for 25 years and they are simply better.

    Works well if used wisely

    Posted by Alan on 6th Oct 2016

    Large capacity and works well, the "cage" sits on top of the burner but the diameter is pretty small so smaller pots don't sit on it very well. It is designed for the pathfinder cup and mine just sits on top, but you really need a level and stable base . Size is pretty much the same as a trangia and mine works well with a swedish army cookset.

    its ok to get a brew on

    Posted by Alwyn on 2nd Nov 2015

    I have had this for a few months now, on the whole it's pretty good when combined with the Pathfinder cup. The only issues I have with it is, it does feel like it could tip over when using it (although it never has). And the O ring on the lid was rubbish from day one and does not allow for a tight enough seal so fuel leaks out for me when transporting it, so I now keep fuel in a separate bottle which is a bit of pain. Other than that the service is great and the gear arrives really fast , even to me here in Finland.

    recent purchase

    Posted by BadgerJFreeman on 12th Oct 2015

    bought this item for my son as a present for Christmas so the product hasn't been tested yet. However it was delivered quickly without any issues came well packaged/protected and now its been opened and checked its clearly a quality piece of equipment . I expect he will get many years of hot drinks and food while he's exploring the great outdoors all around the UK. Would use this company again without hesitation :)
