The Primus Eta Express has gradually evolved into a great practical camping and backpacking stove. For £95 you get a burner with piezo ignition, a windshield, and a cooking pot with a lid that includes a colander and a plastic bowl. Everything packs into a stuffsack, but it doesn’t pack down as neatly as it could with a little more ...

Primus Express Spider (2012)

£45.00

The main problem with connecting a gas burner directly onto the top of a gas canister is that the result is a tall, unstable cooking system, due to the height created when a pan is placed on top. This means you have to be very careful not to allow the structure to wobble too much, as you could end up ...

Primus Express Spider 2011

£45.00

The main problem with connecting a gas burner directly to the top of a gas canister is that the result is an unstable cooking system due to the height of the pan when placed on top. Also, to control the flame you have to position your hands directly under the pan of boiling water. A safer option is to connect ...

Primus Eta Express 2009

£60.00

The Primus Eta Express is the one-person version of the two-person Eta Power stove, and both are superbly efficient due to the use of heat exchangers on the base of the pans. The burner on the Eta Express is identical to the Primus Express with Ignition burner. So it is the pans and the windshield that are the key features ...

Primus PrimeLite Race headtorch - Volunteer tester

£50.00

Review by socrates My first impression of the Primus PrimeLite when I first got it out of the package was that it seemed big and clumsy. After playing with it in my living room and getting a feel for it I put the batteries in. Then, having one of those moments, I just couldn't work out how to turn it on. ...

EtaPower MF stove - Volunteer tester

£120.00

Review by mountainmachine The first thing I have to say about this stove is how quickly and efficiently it boils water. At first I was dubious about how the small heat exchanger and windshield could have such a big impact. But there is no doubt that it does its job well. From ignition it sounds like it has the power ...

Primus Gravity II EF

£50.00

For regular use, a low-profile gas stove is an excellent option; gas is easier to use and the low-profile design makes the stove more stable. The Primus Gravity II EF is an excellent example of this type of design. It comes with folding legs to make it even more stable while the exceptionally slender design really hugs the ground. Most ...

The Eta Express is the one-person version of the Eta Power stove, and both are superbly efficient thanks to their use of a heat exchanger on the base of the pan. In fact, the burner on the Eta Express is identical to the Primus Express with ignition unit, so it’s the pans that are key and they manage to deliver ...

But not as stable as lower-profile stoves; best boil time is only available with fresh gas canister; only a 35mm diameter burner, so hot spots more likely than some heavier ...

Primus ETA Express

Camping stoves are prime targets for space and weight saving as they are only used for a few minutes a day when backpacking. So what a backpacker ideally needs is a super-efficient stove that uses the minimal amount of fuel to cook up an evening meal. Better still, the stove needs to be lightweight and compact enough to pack down ...

Primus Stainless Steel Vacuum Flask

£20.00

A beautiful black, grippy, anodised flask with a good performance in the temperature test. The cup has a good plastic lining to prevent sore lips. The stopper has a press-down pourer and can also be easily unscrewed. You also get very good instructions and a spare stopper. But the price kills an otherwise good flask, while some may prefer simpler ...
