    MSR Windburner

    Whos got one/used one? What do you like/dislike about it? Are they worth the extra cost over something from Jetboil?

    As far as I am aware they are all exactly the same thing with different branding. Kovea, jetboil etc just different colours
    Only thing is getting the one with the package size you want ie the size container

    Quite different, they use radiant heat instead of the open burner style of the Jetboil. Less affected by wind, altitude etc. I would likely upgrade to a Windburner if I was doing more alpine style hunting, but for me the Jetboil works.

    I have one, never used a jet boil to compare, have to use a lighter to light rather than pressing a button.
    If my work annoys me, I cull them

    I like mine less affected by wind,As above have to use a lighter to start.Annoying thing is accessories are a rip as they bayonet to the cooker.$170 slides for a fry pan.

    Still using hexi. Costs nothing, weighs nothing, low profile, occupies fuck all space, can't break it, always works.

    I do like the idea of the MSR jobbie in a tent or next to a bivvy bag though, had a jetboil, too tall, pain in the bum in the wind, don't have it any more. Don't buy an MSR here tho, get it from offshore.

    That, is quite a random co-incidence, I have a homemade mini meths cooker made I made from a redbull can, once it is running, it is the cup support. Only drawback is no resistance to wind. Quite tough little cookers too.

    i have a jetboil and a msr windburner ... the windburner is better than the jet boil in exposed and colder climates like snowy tops etc, the rest of the year i use the jetboil... side by side they are very much the same but the windburner is less effected by air movement and the burner acts differently.

    My little homemade meths cooker, from an immigrant beer can. Will support and boil a 2 liter billy if needed, just a matter of measuring the right amount of fuel.Name:  keller can cooker.JPG

    I have the same and it is good, it uses a fair bit of gas but I don't know if that is the norm for them. Works well otherwise
