Not wanting to rain on anyones parade here but I'd be wary. I bought one of Alpkits clones and had significant problems with them both. They looked very similar to those linked in the OP. The gas leaked out significantly at the screw joint and stripped the threads of the canister. Personally I wouldn't bother.

To be fair to Alpkit themselves, they did send out a warning/recall email on the Brukits.

Absolutely and I mean to cast no dispersions on Alpkit (outstanding kit, prices and customer support are all I've experienced from them) but it also happened to the replacement they sent.

Mines’s been good. It’s the Jackal I think, smaller version when there was a choice.

The price has dropped right down again. Reckon they got in Monday morning to find they hadn’t sold as many as they thought and dropped the price again?

The latest email says someone did something "expensive and stupid" so the price went back up before they wanted it to, new sales has a countdown with over 7 days on it

So, probably they got in Monday morning to find an order for 100 from some chancer hoping to punt them on eBay at £35. :D

I've got my stoves well sorted these days. Totally happy with what I've got. Definitely don't need anything else. Nothing at all.


£20 though

I know. I’m happy with the Jackal, the Koro, and the tiny titanium BRS 3000 thingy for convenience. The Svea 123 for fun and pleasure, the Emberlit for woodsmoke cookery. But, £20 :D

I remain strong, stoic in the face of temptation.

Bought a Mora 749 for kitchen and camp duties instead.:27:
