I have to confess I have looked longingly at the Jetboil stove system for a long time. I own an assortment of backpacking stoves that go back easily 30 years. Every one of them works well and each has its quirks.
This review today on Wired.com only reaffirms that this stove system has a lot going for it. It its a highly efficient stove for the ultra-light solo tripper and now I see it could work well cooking for a group as I typically do. If you are interested in a high-performance, light-weight packing stove, this piece is worth a read.
I absolutely fell in love with my Jetboil a couple years ago when Nate and I did our Rio Grande trip. Easy to use, efficient and I’ve never had coffee quicker!
