|The Soto Muka stove (OD-1NP) in operation.|
This page serves as a supplement to the full review. Herein, I will put up a few additional photos that are worth a look that I just couldn't fit into the magazine review.
First, the vari-vent windscreen. This is a really nice windscreen, the nicest windscreen of its type that I've seen.

Here, that I've got a 0.9L Primus LiTech kettle on the stove. In this photo, I've tightened down the windscreen and clipped it in place. Soto actually provides a clip -- a much nice clip than the one I'm using here -- that I neglected to use the day I shot these photos. Notice though that there's quite a bit of "excess" windscreen doubled around the pot. They didn't skimp on this windscreen; there's plenty of windscreen to go around a substantially larger pot -- the kind of pot you might use for a group or for snow melting.
|The windscreen easily accommodates a 0.9L kettle and has plenty of "slack" available to accommodate much larger pots|
|The opening of the fuel pick up tube is covered by a fine mesh filter|
Now, here's another thing to notice about the Soto Muka: Look at how small it packs up yet how big that burner head is. Show me another stove in this class that has that large of a burner head and yet packs down this small. That large burner head means you have a well distributed flame. There are no burnt spots from a "pencil torch" flame with a Soto Muka.
|Even though the Soto Muka packs down small, it has a relatively large burner head with a well dispersed flame.|

Thanks for joining me on another Adventure in Stoving,
