    After I fell in love with my first Sigg Tourist and SVEA 123 I decided to buy a second one as a back up.

    These really are the best liquid stove kits. They are light weight and super stable and just easy to use.

    I really can not recommend them enough.

    Very important. Remove burner bell from the SVEQ 123 when stacking the set. It will prevent the bell from denting the lid. I forgot to put the stove in the kit when finding the mass. The whole thing together weight about 1004 grams.

    Very nice set. I agree they are an ideal set up. Your Sigg Tourist looks in great condition.
    Good advice on the bell.

    Interesting comment on the bell removal. I used my set extensively for over a dozen years without removing the bell and no dented lid. I must be lucky or maybe just oblivious to dents.

    I have an old Sigg set that had the lid very dented before I got it. I tapped it mostly back into shape with a light weight hammer.

    I have always removed the bell. I cannot see it fitting the lid on with it attached. I assumed that the stove was best left in the tabs during storage.

    I’ve also always removed the bell, as much to protect the bell as the lid.
