Jetboil, How good are they

#3
Probably has been discussed before not sure but mate of mine had one on last ex, didnt think too much of them, pretty big for what it is.
Each to there own but i think the pocket rocket is a decent burner.
Hope this helps

Works well but it is a bit big not impressed with self igniter getting the
small size gas cannisters can be a pain but works well with ordinary cannisters and in fact is more stable.

I think that they are an excellent bit of kit when used in the correct place. I wouldnt want to cart it around in my belt kit or daysack (not out long enough to warrent taking it). When in a harbour they are by far the fastest for squaring admin away efficiently. The downside is the noise, especially if there is a troop full of jet boils!!

Apart from the noise, good bit of kit - light, quick, no mess and easy to use. I've had it out of my daysack, brew made and packed away again in 2 minutes. It will fit in a webbing pouch if you want quick brews on a tab.

You have time for a brew when tabbing?!

Only problem is you become your bosses brew bitch .As its so easy to do got the self igniter replaced and its brillant bit of kit .Ok it take up a pouch but after bullets and water and food what else are you going to carry
Definatly goes along with gortex and warm kit as essential carries.

I think they're excellent, big yes, but highly effecient... even a small gas can lasts ages (or is that simply because we don't do enough proper exercises). I've had mine for over two years... its not faltered so far.
