The Lite+ from Primus is one of the lightest and smallest stoves of this 'stove system' type on the market, making it a good choice for summer alpinism or for those simply wishing for a crag stove to brew up with throughout the winter months (the ultimate luxury).

The pan/cup part is 500ml in size and will fit one of the smallest size gas canisters in it, along with all parts of the stove itself. This smaller size is great for individuals, or those needing to shave off the grams, but does mean you might have to make several brews if there are two or three people! Read more
