49252Re: INITIAL REPORT - JetBoil Stove
- Apr 1, 2004No wind shild used on the canister stove (Primas Alpine Micro), but I
did use the factory supplied wind shild on the MSR Whisperlight.
I ran both stoves at ~60% flame output to compensate for shield and
the pan only having a 6" base.
As noted the flame exhaust was not hot.
I'd be interested in learning more about the shield you mentioned and
could rerun the test on the Primus.
