Here is an in-depth review of the Optimus Svea 123 stove. I go over the features of the stove, do a boil test, and compare the weight with a more modern backpacking stove. The Svea 123 is my favorite white gas stove. It is the only stove in its class that I can truly depend on to fire up and cook my meals every time. I’ve never had to fiddle with it in the field, it has never failed me. It may be an older than me, but if I take care of it my kids will be able to use it one day. If you’re in the market for a new liquid fuel stove, I think this one deserves a serious look.
