I stuck with Coleman because itís what I already owned. Itís 30 years old and still works well. Most of the low pressure camp stoves Iíve seen are a lot bulkier than my trusty Coleman, but perhaps there are some nice compact units out there?
You are correct about bulkiness. That is my biggest complaint about the Ranger II. Additionally, it is not as wind resistant as a Coleman type stove, IMO. On the rare occasion I use mine, I find it needs a separate wind barrier.
