/ Which Trangia- 25 or 27?
Any recommendation appreciated.
i would go for the bigger one, and get the gas conversion kit for it.
Because i sometime find it small for 2 (but i do like to eat lol)
its the big one i got :)
Which to be honest, is perfect size for 2 people for me.
I love them, used them since i was a kid.
They are so stable you can stir without having to hold on to the pot, unlike the little flimsy ones with a pot balancing on top of a canister.
With the gas converter they are so nice to cook on, and you can get the gas canister inside it when packed up.
For you and your step son, the larger one is the one for you. Obviously it is a bit heavier, but not significantly!
mostly because I find the meths burner a bit underpowered for the larger pans. Either is worth getting though.
If you are getting a new one, have a look at the primus heat exchanger pans. The smaller one of these (2.1l) will fit into the larger trangia. Together with the gas burner this is the perfect camping or trekking setup. I recently carried this combination 150 km through the Padjelanta and Sarek national parks in Sweden, and it made it easy to cook meals for 2 adults and 3 children.
... or, if you are buying new, why not go for a primus eta power stove right away? The heat exchanger pans really are an improvement in efficiency over the trangia. Robustness I don't know, hard to beat the trangia I guess. I have mine since 30 years, one gas burner died at some point, put the pans and casing even survived being run over by my old Volvo.
