    The Whisperlite is the only way to go in cold temps. You should have no problem in single digits. Propane/Butane and other gas pressure stoves are utterly useless in the cold. Above freezing, I prefer them.

    That optimus 99 looks interesting!

    Sold the whisperlite and took an MSR Pocket Rocket 2 to save space and weight..single digits (hit zero the 1st night), camped at 12,500 for 1st rifle, kept fuel in my bag overnight and cooked on their tripod like stand, stove never skipped a beat in 5 days.
