If you’re really counting the grams, then saving weight on your stove may be worth considering. While there are lots of gas burners around the 70g mark, it’s rare to find one below 60g – but the GoSystem Fly Ti goes even lower at just 47g. The weight saving comes from the use of titanium and from smaller pan supports, so here you’re getting a 11cm diameter support while the heavier models have a 12 to 13cm diameter support. You do get a 5cm diameter burner head, though, which spreads the flame across the pan better than a 3cm burner. The burner screws directly to the top of the gas canister and the flame control knob folds out neatly, but there is no piezo ignition. The performance is similar to other burners of this type but you don’t get a stuffsack or plastic case to store the burner in your rucksack, which – considering the price is a little higher than others – is slightly disappointing. But if you really want to save weight then a 47g stove, where you’re paying around a pound per gram, could be for you. Having that wider burner is an advantage over some heavier stoves, the GoSystem Fly Ti is definitely worth thinking about unless you’re strapped for cash.
Packed size 7x6x6cm
Pan support diameter 11cm
Weight (without fuel) 47g burner
If you want minimal weight, then at 47g the GoSystem Fly Ti is a great option. The pan supports are smaller than others but the burner is wider than some heavier stoves.
