Review: Primus

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval


Primus’s reputation for lightweight, super efficient stoves is certainlu upheld by this new model. The PackLite has a speedy boil time of 2.5 minutes or less, a cary weight of 21 oz with a 1.2 liter pot. The titanium non-stick surface makes even outback cleanup quite easy.

The piezo igniter is a real plus especially on those cold, windy days when haste is good! Like most Primus products, it all packs into itself to make a very efficient package.


Another example of intelligent design in this outstanding Eta series. The Express is reliable, efficient, fast and lightweight. The clip-on windscreen helps bring water to a fast boil in the aluminum pot every time.

The pot lid also doubles as a small frying pan with a folding handle for solo cooking. At 14.5 oz this is great for the lightweight hiker whose culinary inclinations lean toward more than trail mix for dinner!
