Good point, but they are a lot cheaper than the Brunton was. A 2-burner Partner is I think about $250 and a 4-burner about $325. That probably didn't help sales. Partner stoves are very common with outfitters and guides, no doubt about their reputation. I don't think much about them because of the need for propane. Had to once use white gas in an old truck (old F150) to get to a gas station and ever since I've liked the idea that I could burn it in an emergency (idle only in the 22R-E, but probably clean the combustion chambers like crazy) or use unleaded in my stove & lantern. I know it's not necessarily logical or even probably reasonable anymore, but funny how things that happen to you as a kid make such an impact.
