I was impressed with the quality of the metal and the parts in general. It was easy to install and once you’re ready to camp with it you can fold up the flues and put them in the stove body. Also I recommend burning some papers or cardboard when you first get it just to burn out any kind of chemicals used in manufacturing. I can’t wait to really put it to the test on a backpacking trip
For its size it made of a pretty heavy gage steel, the pipe is also nice and thick. Got it to heat my wood shop and I expect this will give me years of service. I plan on putting some fire brick in it also just to extend its life.
