    An eBay purchase - needed a good overhaul. Many parts, such as the generator and grate, are interchangeable with a 533. Folding legs and a narrow but tall tank.

    these are very fine stoves,i used a Feather for many years on canoe trips where they got some hard use knocked around inside the case/cook kit.
    the stove never failed but as they were made a bit lighter the grate/windscreen pulled away from the rivets.i replaced it with one made for a Peak One that was a bit heavy but really made no difference for the type of camping i was doing.
    these burn so hot and are so easy on fuel that i would light mine up to warm up the inside of my Baker shelter.

    The tank is actually slightly bigger than a 550B, so the "Feather" thing is a bit of a misnomer - it's not especially lightweight.
