Express Spider (Spring 2013)
Click to zoom in.
The Express Spider is one of the lightest hose-mounted gas stoves available. As its name indicates, it uses the same technology as Primus's ExpressStove top mounted gas stove. And it lives up to its name by being a really lightweight stove that’s also extremely stable and durable, thanks to its well-planned construction. Comes with a heat reflector and nylon stuff sack.

Compact, efficient, gourmet controls Review by Matthew

I've used this stove for more than five years in conditions ranging from summer to below freezing (yes that's right, a canister stove that works below 32 F). I've used this stove on a mid-September kayak camping trip in the Saranac Lakes Chain in the ADKs, in North Central PA during a chilly Memorial Day Weekend, and it performed flawlessly in night temperatures below freezing. The flame control allows for a low simmer to a raging boil. I'd recommend disposing of the wind-screen/base that the stove comes with and replace it with a folded square of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
