We had heard about this little stove but never used one in anger until the OMM Adventure Race and all we can say is, wow!

Nothing comes close if you can live with the extra grams.

I've struggled to fit my MSR Pocket Rocket into an MSR Titan Kettle for ages so recently tried cutting bits off the pan supports. The stove fits into the pan ok but the supports are now a bit small so decided to buy a new canister stove. The Crux Stove is superb - I've used it a fair bit since it arrived and can't fault it. You can tell the difference in performance from the larger burner head compared to the Pocket Rocket, and it also works far better with pans that have a heat exchanger - the boil time with this type of pan is really impressive. The articulated head on the stove is a little bit wobbly with a big pan, but no problem with a smaller pan. I've got a 1l Primus Eta pan that is a bit big for the Crux so I regret not buying the Crux stove-pan bundle which includes a smaller pan that looks like a really useful size. The little neoprene sack thing that you use to stow the burner beneath a gas canister is really effective and is not a pointless gimmick. The only downside is that with the neoprene thing on the gas canister won't slide into the MSR Titan kettle. On balance I think I did the right thing going for the Crux vs the Micro Rocket, especially as the larger burner head on the Crux makes so much difference (its a bit quieter too......).

With a stove as small and unobtrusive as this there's no excuse for not having a brew when out n' about. I recently spent an entire day with a silky zubat hand saw clearing all the windblown trees from my mtb trails and i made sure to pack this small stove in my camalbak pocket and gas cart inside my msr Titan kettle, the joy of stopping whenever i wanted to have a brew and admire my handiwork and cleared trails was very satisfying - fantastic little stove and i can see it proving to be very useful. Very well built and folds out with an extremely secure action that inspires confidence in use, surprisingly easy to regulate the gas flow as well for simmering.
