    They unfortunately had problems with the 324 Rider. Anybody know the particulars? A camping buddy bought one and was not happy, winter campouts especially are not the time to discover major stove defects. Can't recall exactly what the problem was, seems to me it was leaking fuel and/or wouldn't pressurize, something like that. He returned it for a refund and bought an 8R "Hunter" and had no trouble with that.
