Can't speak directly to the specific units you mentioned, but there are a number of things to consider in fuel sources.
- Availability of fuel
- Amount of fuel you will need. (depends on length of trip and number of people for whom you'll be cooking)
- Whether you will carry fuel in packs or will be using a vehicle as base.
Canister gas stoves are typically a great choice for cleanliness, portability and controllability of flame. They tend to burn clean and eliminate some of the potential mess of spilled liquid fuels.
Personally, I like to take a smaller stove with a 20lb propane tank and adapter hose if we'll be out for a week or more and plan to be based around the vehicle.
All that said, a multi-fuel stove has advantages if you are unsure of canister availability and want the flexibility of using the best of whatever is available.
Depending on the type of trip, we use everything from a Tool Box Grill, to a Coleman Fold-n-Go to a Coleman Peak 1 Feather 442 Dual Fuel.
For short backpacking trips with the kids, I would probably favor a canister type for the ease of use and cleanliness.
Good luck with your decision and good on ya for getting your boys out with you.
