25464RE: [BackpackGearTest] MSR Simmerlite
- Feb 21, 2003Oh, the Dragon is positively operating room clean compared to the Simmer.
I've got a Dragonfly as well. The Simmer is much lighter (less than half)
and I feel, due to the very wide flame spread, it actually works better at
snow melting. I think the Dragon may simmer a bit lower (smaller flame
spread) the the flame is so concentrated.

So far that sounds like a great description of the MSR Dragonfly. I've only
had it out for three test drives but your description of the Simmerlite
almost nailed my experience with the Dragonfly.

Great gas mileage on low. One of the best snow melters I've seen. Pretty
easy to light. Weighs less than most gas stoves. Better bring a pair of
glove liners to handle the sooty little thing. I'm a lightweight backpacker
(even though I frequently carry a Hennessy... ;o) ) so the only time I use
this stove is to melt snow. It is my second choice for that over all and
first for very low temps.
