Teeny-friggin-tiny, that's the Primus ExpressLander stove. At 6.2 ounces it's getting into the insectoid weight division. I've seen cockroaches in Hawaii heavier than this thing.
The ExpressLander is built on Primus' Express stove technology, but where the Express sits on top of a canister the ExpressLander hooks up with the ubiquitous white gas. It comes with a carry case, windscreen and fuel canister pump. Everything together weighs in at 11.1 ounces.
The ExpressLander boils a quart of water in under five minutes, and cold weather performance is enhanced by wrapping the fuel feeder tube around the burner. It's a manual lighter, but that's no problem since everything is out in the open. For general backpacking use with white gas, the ExpressLander is a great little stove that won't break your back or your bank account.

My dad just started up a company that makes insect repellent/moisture wicking (and depending on the model spf protected) shirts that would be perfect for any adventure. I was wondering if you would do a product review on the blog? Please let me know and you can check the shirts out at haeleum.com
Thank you very much,
This is all well and good, but it’s hardly the lightest weight stove out there. I’ve got a Snow Peak Giga which weighs in at 4-and-change ounces and there’s a titanium one which is lighter still. And they’ve got piezo lighters. I’m a fan of Primus, but this is hardly uncharted terrain.
