- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Swap the ringsâ¦keep cooking.
A must have
I use with the whisperlite stove and have little experience repairing but it's not hard. You Should bring on your trip just in case, can be the difference between eating or not.
One of those things we learned is better to have and not need the need and not have. Spend the extra money and get it so your not SOL on the mountain, and packing a stove that won't work, cause the ring broke and you have nothing to replace it with, and it's only night one of a week long trip. Happened to a buddy of mine, so i purchased this when I bought my stove.
for a bunch of 'O' rings and a spanner. i was out the country so had no choice, but i would recommend going to a hardware store to buy the parts. You wouldn't get the pretty red box though.
you should look into the expedition service kits. they have a lot more of the specialized parts that could potentially break on a trip.
A Must-Have For The Backcountry!
An essential part of my repair-kit pouch (Where all other repair kits are stashed).
Has everything needed to maintain stove.
worth the money
$15 for stove maintenance??? I spoke with a MSR representative and they said it is a good idea to use this every year even if you don't use it that much just to make sure everything stays in prime operating conditions. You could imagine not using it for a while and getting on the trail assuming the stove is working fine, and get out there and it isn't working. MSR stoves are super user friendly and really easy to take apart and clean. Using this kit will help preserve your purchase of a quality stove.
All Essential Parts + That Break Down Are Included
No need to pack in, but necessary to maintain your liquid fuel stoves @ home. Rubber parts, when exposed to liquid fuel, break down over a period of time. The all purpose wrench is also a great tool to have.
you know Bear Grills doesn't have one of these
OK, the only thing Bear Grills brings out in the woods is a knife, some flint, a couple of cameramen and the illogical (British?)desire to jump in some body of water, regardless of its temperature, swiftness, or general danger to his overall well being. This guy doesn't even own a stove and he does ok...so why do you need this maintenance kit? You probably don't. But if your stove isn't fairly new, its nice to have a backup for the O-rings and an on-trail kit in case it gets clogged. It's also good peace-of-mind that you'll be able to use/get rid of that freeze dried cuisine you've been hauling around for the past week...because unlike Bear Grills you follow forest service regulations and avoid making bon fires regardless of how wet/hypothermic you may be from jumping in the water.
You mean Bear GRYLLS?!! :)
