Hexi or gas

Gas every time, MSR Pocket Rocket, (about £30), have seen a system called Jetboil in action,pricier at about £50 ,but what performance, boils a litre of water in about 2 mins

Any decent outdoors shop, you get 15% discount at cotswold or field and trek if you show a MOD 90
Seen the jet boil at cotswold and blacks as well

Whem i'm vehicle bourne (ie weight, space and more importantly resupply isn't so much of an issue) I use a MSR Whisperlite stove which burns virtually any fuel including diesel!!

It just so happens that the army supply diesel and kero which is convenient.

Not the cheapest stove ever but I love it. Its ideal for overseas civvie stuff as well as no matter where in the world you might be you are bound to be able to get some form of fuel for it.

sounds good .....even diesel?.......now that is good....how much we talkin for the stove in question?

I paid 70 Canadian Dollars in 1998 so not to sure what they fetch now - Google or Ebay perhaps?

They do burn diesel but be warned they do need cleaning much more often. However, to clean it is just a matter of shaking them.

ive seen these .....wondered if it was just a cheap experiment , but then ive heard reports there actual practical, what gas do they burn?, how much water can they hold?, can u get a boilly in them?

MSR whisperlite is a great piece of kit, it's about as tactical as a loud smelly noisy thing however (don't be deceived by the name). Difficult to travel with too.

MSR Whisperlite, great bit of kit, if you can get the fcuker to light without the pantomime.That said if you are away from replen then a good option.
Jet boil is amazing bit of kit, yes you can get a boilie into the cup , and the gas canister and lots of other htings as it all packs into itself.
Would suggest you see one at your local dealers as thats easier than describing it

via crab air and its exspensive .

The little cooking thing s'posed to get issued that fits on the bottom of the metal mug & a hexi block.

Crusader cooker ? Got one of those, think it was originally designed to use the greenheat gel but does work with hexi, bit of a mess though
