UPDATE 13 November 2014: I spoke with someone at MSR. MSR doesn't recommend using the Reactor hanging kit with the Windboiler. Because the center of gravity will be quite high, they believe that there's a chance that the stove could invert. I hope to get a Windboiler hanging kit when they become available and report on the differences.
UPDATE 27 November 2014: I have now got the proper hanging kit. See: Hanging Kit II
I've posted a photo below. Obviously it's not a "big wall" climbing situation, but you get the idea. The point is that it works.

|The "elbows" on a Reactor hanging kit stick out a bit on a Windboiler. It looks a bit odd, but it works just fine.|
There you have it: A very brief report. The Windboiler with a hanging kit: It works.
I thank you for joining me,

The item reviewed here was provided to me at no charge for the purposes of this review. I am under no obligation to review this or any other item. I am not compensated for my reviews in any fashion other than in some cases I am permitted to keep the item reviewed. Given that I have well over a 100 backpacking stoves, a free stove frankly isn't going to buy anyone a good review. Stove companies must measure up if they want a decent review here. I am an amatuer stove blogger; I make my living elsewhere, in the IT field. I fit blogging in as time permits. Inasmuch as my income is derived elsewhere, monetary issues do not influence the reviews on this blog. Yes, I do have advertisements on the blog. I typically derive about $1.00 USD per day from the advertisements (last I checked). This is a mere pittance and does not influence my reviews in the slightest. Revenue from the advertisements goes toward hosting fees, stove fuel, and the like. The blog is self supporting in that sense, and my wife is quite happy that I'm not using the family's income to run the blog, particularly given how tough the economy is these days.
