    A new Manaslu 96 (2014)

    The bag:

    The stove:

    The burner:

    I do not understand the Japanese text on the spirit cup. Maybe it stands "Do not drink [-X "

    1425486318-_d203766_se.jpg

    No doubt this is a Manaslu:

    "304"

    There is a mesh inside the riser tube, I have never seen anything like this on a swedish stove:

    The tank:
    "Manaslu 96"

    1425487381-_d203777_ne.jpg

    1425487005-_d203774_nw.jpg


    The reserve lid works as pump knob:

    Not that many pieces as a Primus 96:

    Details on the tank:
    1425487621-_d203788_se.jpg

    1425487652-_d203789_nw.jpg

    1425487682-_d203790_nw.jpg

    Under the tank, its stamped "304", the same number as on the burner:

    Flame ring:

    I am also seriously tempted to buy one now. I've thought about it now and then. It solves the problem of the 96's and related half-pinters, which in my view have too many loose parts to reliably serve as backpacking stoves, as opposed to roadside brew-up stoves.

    I see that Basecamp says it's out of stock. Are there other sellers?

    I'd wager the writing on the spirit cup says something to the effect of, "LEFT HAND THREAD!"

    No left hand threads on my Manaslu 96. It is lightweight, not as light as my Svea 123R, but the lightest I have burning parrafin.

    My Primus 96 is more light weight, with a small margin.

    "Flaming tested." or "Tested"

    Hoping you satisfy it.
