Not to be dramatic, but I blame a surplus stove of near identical form and function which I had purchased 25 years ago for the various shelves and closets Of mine that are now crammed with backpacking equipment.
Simple, reliable, cheap to feed and nothing to go wrong. Denatured alcohol, grain alcohol, Heet, whatever - works every time. Maybe not superformance fast or blazing hot, but just what you need for a warm meal or some coffee on the trail.
I've used German alcohol stoves for a few years now, and even know how to build the soda can burners. But, a Turm Sport stove is impractical for a bug out bag. I've wanted to purchase one of these for awhile, so last night, I did. When I got home, I tested it, and made a cup's worth of rice in one of my backpack pots. The rice came out perfect! The Esbit boiled the water fairly quickly, when used in a Coughlin stove, and the simmer ring regulated the simmer perfectly! All in all, this was a good investment; now, all I need, is something that flolds flatter than my Coughlin's stove, like an Emberlit perhaps...
I have used the Esbit / Trangia / and other alcohol stoves for years... by far the Esbit has been a dependable, rugged stove for solo events... GREAT addition to other backpacking / B.O.B / and other wilderness activities...
I have used both the Esbit & Trangia alcohol stves for backpacking, ultra light camping ... Both work great but the Esbit has a longer handle on the cover to control simmer with.. I have used these for years, and just purchased another for my bug out bag They work better than the beer/pop/coke can alcohol stoves you make.....
