Default 2 Burner Backpack Stoves?

Can anyone tell me if there are any good 2 burner, lightweight stoves for tripping? Something that uses White gas, like a Peak 1 or something, only with 2 burners?

Thanks.

I have only ever seen one two-burner backpacking stove, and it's a cannister.

Here's a link to it: http://www.rei.com/online/store/Prod...8000&langId=-1

If there's another option, perhaps sir stove alot (Hiker Boy) would have some information on it.

How are these cannisters? Please excuse my ignorance,but are they efficient in most climates? How long does a typical cannister of fuel last in comparison to the classic white-fuel (re-fillable) cannisters?

Thanks.

I'll second the Coleman Exponent Xpedition Stove recommendation. I don't own one but I hear it works really well in cold temps for a cannister stove. From what I have seen of this stove in action in neighboring campsites, this stove is loud!

These canisters are great they have a tube running down the inside so no dying when your bottle is almost empty they also can be punctured and then stepped on for easy packing and are recyclable !!!!! . You get 42 Min with both elements cranked on a 300g cartridge. We have sold these for a while and have had no problems. I have the smaller powermax stove and love it, so easy to use.

I just remembered. Hiker Boy, weren't you looking at a two burner stove? Think it was the Extreme Ruwenzi or something like that?

Shhhhhhhhh! That was supposed to be a secret! *sigh* Ah well too late now! Mock me for the expense I go through for my little stove collection if you will!

The Extreme Ruwenzori stove is just the most coveted stove out there right now. Inspired by the Swedes, this little Italian stove was first pioneered by an Italian mountaineering expedition into the darkest heart of Africa. It burns alcohol under pressure and is about the most efficient stove out there. Somehow it even works well in cold and higher altitudes. Since there were only a limited number produced this year, it is very very expensive! Anyone in the know about stoves wants to get their hands on one of these babies!

How can we mock you? When the power goes out all along the west coast, you can still cook a gourmet meal on 18 (19?) stoves at once. If you can't pay the heating bill, you can warm up around the stoves...

Nah, how can we mock our resident stove *****?
