Solid stove!
Nice combination of light weight with performance. The adapter for using with propane worked well, too. Looking forward to getting it out on some hikes.

I finally got a chance to use this stove camping. I had already test fired it at home so I knew how to set it up. BTW, when screwing on a full canister, keep the canister horizontal. I used a lighter to light the stove. It worked great to heat up 450 ml of water for coffee. Outside temperature and water temperature was mid 30's Fahrenheit. I did not measure fuel consumption but will do so next time. The regulator knob works well, from simmering to roaring. The pot supports work on my TOMSHOO 750 ml titanium pot (seen here) and on my smaller 500 ml TOAKS titanium pot. I had a wind screen handy but did not need it this particular morning. Once the water was boiled, I also inverted the canister to test that function. There was a sputter but otherwise it worked great. The fuel cable is flexible and the braided sheath looks sturdy. I'm very happy with the Kovea Spider stove. I just need to find a lightweight windscreen for it and actually use it in sub-freezing temperatures.

For ultralight windshields for the KOVEA Spider, check out these designs made from beer cans: http://mercatorgear.com/index.php/2-uncategorised/53-kovea-spider-windshield-2 The Mark 3 (22g) seems to be the best and is easy to make

Thanks for the info Mercator! I also found that FlatCatGear makes two different types of screen. They are heavier but are worth a look. The Bobcat would be good for wider pots while the Snow Leopard would be good for tall and narrow pots. https://www.flatcatgear.com/shop/bobcat-kovea-windscreen/

Nice stove. Quick, relatively light weight, but it seriously needs a windscreen. Picked it up for a versitility option with the propane & butane adapters. I'm not sure if it'll be my go-to stove, I have several others, but it serves a solid purpose for me of being a decent multi-fuel burner.

In the absence of a wind-shield the burn time is significantly reduced

I have used this stove this past winter for winter backpacking. It's very easy to use, flipping the canister when you need to. Yes, there is a bit of increase in the flame when you do flip it; but that's to be expected. I use it with a windscreen and I don't bother with the piezo lighter - use my own lighter. Compared to my whisperlite fuel bottle stove, the spider is much, much easier to use. I have only used it down to temps of 15 degrees, so can't say how it performs when it's colder. It doesn't take up that much extra room in the pack. Kovea makes great stoves. I used the Kovea supalite on my JMT hike.

Great stove! Jet engine to simmer. Relatively quiet compared to my old Svea 123 and easier to fire up!) Get the Kovea LP adapter for big groups or just making lots of coffee.

I like this stove so well, I have 2 of them. I took one on a week-long hike of the Appalachian Trail in May 2017, using canister fuel. Another 2 weeks of bicycling the Souther Tier, I used the propane adapter I had also purchased when I bought the stoves. Canister fuel was hard to find on the bike ride. But Coleman propane fuel was easy to locate. The stove worked well with that fuel also.

I used this all winter. I added a wind screen which was safe and helped greatly. I used less gas than most winters. It is heavier than my other canister stoves but otherwise I have no complaints.

Simply brilliant. Folds up into the sea to summit x-kettle along with an x-cup for a complete cooking kit that takes up a tiny amount of space. I don't know of a 4-season set-up that is smaller than that. Wish it had titanium legs for a lighter weight though.

Great stove. Light, folds down small enough to fit in my cup. Like most of these types of things...the piezo lighter was dead on arrival. Not a big deal...better than having one attached to the stove! I recommend this stove for winter camping as you can invert the canister.
