If you’re looking for a light Trangia stand that has a good windscreen and fits in a 1L titanium pot, this is a solid buy.
However, if you’re looking to also add the option of a gas stove, take note. There are slits in the triangular wall for the holder “plate” to go into.
There are two levels of these slits. One level for the Trangia stove, and one level for a gas burner.
I’m guessing when the slits for the gas burner level were added, they were designed around the older Trangia gas stove (OEM’d from Optimus).
Because the new Trangia gas stove, the X2 (OEM’d from Primus), is too low, the bottom of the Trangia X2 is BELOW the bottom of the walls, making it unstable.
But you can’t move the holder shelf to the higher slits (or rungs, if you will), because than the additional slit added for fuel line doesn’t go high enough, and besides which, even if the fuel line slit was high enough so that you could place the gas burner to the higher rung, the next problem would be the flame emitting form the gas stove would be too high, not to mention the fact that adding a QuietStove would make pots wobble.
The gas burner slit (or rung) is simply set at the wrong height.
For $90, for a shelving system that doesn’t actually include the gas burner, that is a ridiculous oversight. It doesn’t say anywhere on the Amazon page that this setup doesn’t fit the Trangia X2.
