    Looks nice. We've always used Coleman stoves & lanterns because weight and size was not a issue when we camped

    I've got some two and a three burner Colman. Those are for the truck, Jeep and general purposes. The little guys are for the Bicycles, MC and for getting-out-of-Doge in general.

    I bought almost that exact stove in the mid 60's and that little gem still works flawlessly. My tank is not plated and is a dingy brass color, other than that it's related. Has provided hot water in the field, heated soup and warmed my fingers many times. Sounds like a little jet engine once it is running!!!

    Looks handy and compact. I've used the Coleman 2 burner for a camp stove but have an MSR for my backpack whether out scouting or hunting. Hot meal can be a real boost when it's cold and you're tired. And God forbid you end up needing it for a survival situation if you get stranded or hurt.

    I've been out in the woods when open fires were prohibited, the little stove came in real handy. Specially when it came to boiling water.

    The vintage Svea 123 stoves are also worth grabbing when you can find them. Svea made an auxiliary hand pump for high altitude and low temp which would also fit onto the Primus stoves. The pump I have is ex-Finnish military bought in Germany when stationed there in the early 1980s.
