Description

A more versatile, lighter-weight Jetboil system to keep up with your mountain exploration.

An upgrade on all fronts, the Jetboil Sol Stove weighs ounces less than Jetboil's past cooking systems and provides unwavering performance in temperatures down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit. These improvements are thanks to the Thermo-Regulate Burner Technology, which easily achieves Jetboil's trademark two-minute boiling time and also features a push-button igniter, adjustable flame, and safe, lock-in aluminum cup.
  • The new burner's true four-season utility means that you can melt snow and boil noodles in the backcountry without the cold weather adding fuel-sucking minutes to your cook times
  • Intuitive Jetboil design is easy to set up with cold hands and will boil 16 ounces of water in about two minutes
  • Adjustable burner lets you conserve fuel or quickly make a hot drink in the event of an emergency
  • The anodized aluminum cup stores the entire system (including a small fuel canister) for ultimate packability and features a dependable FluxRing that concentrates the heat for rapid boiling
  • Neoprene cozy insulates your hands from heat and increases heat retention for cooking efficiency
  • Included drink-through lid features a pour spout and strainer for easy noodle cooking at camp
  • Bottom cover can be used as a bowl and is graduated so you can use it as a measuring cup
  • Includes a stabilizing tripod that fits onto fuel canisters
  • Note: fuel canister and pot support are sold separately

There's nothing like a jetboil.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I absolutely love my jetboil. Ive been using it for years in any circumstance you could possibly imagine. Ive used other stoves and as far as the actual burner goes, they're all pretty similar. The thing that sets jetboil apart is the actual pot, which has a corrugated bottom so it captures heat much more rapidly and allows you to boil water in a much, much quicker time. Jetboil also has many different attachments such as a french press and different types of pots that make it a very versatile camping stove. Ive dropped this thing, gotten it wet, and basically beat the crap out of this stove for the last few years and it still works great!

The Coffee Crusher

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this stove and couldn't imagine my kit without it. Light, durable, fast, and small this thing has it all.

Be careful when you have it attached to a fuel canister and you push down on the lid or the cup. It seems to be a little weak where it connects with the fuel and may bend easily.

There's no reason why you shouldn't own a Jetboil.

Hey trap556992,

the volume capacity of this cooking system is 0.8 liter. Just shy of a full liter.

Workhorse

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this stove very regularly for almost a year now. I am always amazed at how quickly it heats water and how efficient it has been with fuel. It works relatively well when very cold on multi-day ski tours and almost disappears in my pack. The lighter can be a little finicky at times but with a little patience it starts every time.

Lid needs to be reworked

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I previously owned a Jetboil Flash, bought the Jetboil Sol about 2 years ago and have used it many times. I am not a fan because when I boil water (which is all this stove is really useable for), I can't keep the lid on. The lid is barely stays on when cold, then when it gets hot the lid must expand, because it gets looser than a politician spending tax money. It's really awkward pouring just-boiled water because you have to hold the lid down and it gets really HOT. I've burned fingers more than once. I'm on the Backcountry.com site now looking at other stoves because I just don't want to deal with it anymore. I'm giving the Sol 3 stars because it boils water faster than anything else on the market, but someone needs to go back to the design drawing board.

Jetboil's "color change heat indicator" is built into the insulating cozy. Use this feature to save fuel.

Decent Water Boiler

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When in the backcountry I enjoy simplicity. I do not have a need to create elaborate meals, or clean loads of dishes. All I desire is a quick, easy to prepare food that I can savor together with the scenery. Most of my cooking is as sophisticated as pouring hot water into a plastic bag. Hot beverage in the morning is also a must.

If you need a stove to primarily boil water, you can rely on the Jetboil to have the job done, fast and efficiently. I used it over last 3 years in variety of environments and altitude from sea level to 10,000 + feet, and it performed well time after time.

What i really like about the stove is the fact that everything stoves into the cap. The set up is easy, even for those who are not technically inclined, all you have to do is to screw the burner onto the canister and you are ready to go. By using the tripod (included with the stove) you can achieve good stability on uneven surfaces.

I'm also very happy with the weight, as a matter of fact at 10.5 oz I carry it for emergency purposes on day hikes as well.

Now to the cons:

The push-button igniter rarely works. I returned the first unit I purchased for that reason just to have the second one fail on me the third time I took it out. I talked to several other Jetboil users and found out it's not an uncommon issue. It's muss less frustrating to bring a lighter or fires tarter and use it to spark the stove up.

You have little control over the flame strength. The stove is either off or on which the jetboil less than ideal option for those who like to cook with delicate ingredients or have a need to simmer.

I would prefer the cup's sleeve to be little thicker. I realize that to bring the weight down, some sacrifices have to be made; but with the thin fabric I find the cup too hot to handle right after the water is boiled. My boyfriend; however does not have much issue.

Flimsy construction

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I like how compact this stove is. Compared to the Jetboil Flash, the Sol packs up really small. I didn't like the way it was made, the stove itself is very flimsy. Also the cozy is too thin, it can burn your hand if you are not careful. I tried to fit one of the fuel canisters into the Sol and it wouldn't fit. Over all, I was disappointed about the quality of the product.

Responded on

As far as the fit is concerned, there is a manufacturer's recommendation on how to pack the stove. If this is followed, it is rather easy to properly pack the stand, burner, fuel and pot support. Also, it is important to note that only a 100g (jetpower) fuel canister will fit inside the SOL unit.

Great, but for water only.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Having used the original system for years, I took the opportunity to pick up a Sol when it went on sale to keep in my flyfishing bag for winter trips. Its compact and light and I felt it was perfect for occasional use while flyfishing. Four friends and I recently were able to put the stove to use on a multi-day trip to Lee's Ferry AZ in preparing lunchtime soups in sub freezing temps. Being used to my older system, I fired up the stove with a can of chicken and corn chowder in it. With the valve opened only half a turn, the soup scorched on the bottom in less than the 90 seconds it took for me to dig out a spoon to stir it with. Subsequent uses revealed that it is really an "off or full blast" type stove. To heat water or thin water-based soups, it definitely rocks but be very careful with any other type of food. Also, the Sol does not come with the pot stabilizer as shown in the pics above. I think I'll return this and stick with my old original but predictable and controllable Zip system.

GEAR REVIEW: Jetboil Sol Cooking System

This is a great little system. Boils water very fast and works well in cold temps. See my video for a full review of the system.

awesome stove

Hot Water Quick

Great lightweight, compact stove. heats water quick too.

THE CUP: Used this for some car camping and it is awesome. It brings water to a boil very quickly, and the neoprene insulator works well too. The neoprene also features a boiling indicator. When the whole strip on the side turns orange, the water is ready. It worked well with four people sharing; no one had to wait long to get the breakfast/coffee/hot chocolate. It would probably start to be annoying with a bigger group. This cup seems durable enough, but i haven't really banged it on anything.

THE STOVE: this is a surefire lighting stove. i'm sure there are people that have had issues with it (i would guess with strong wind), but it has lit on the first try everytime for me. like most backpacking stoves, a strong wind will increase your time to boil, so buy or improvise a wind screen. otherwise, it's light, easy to set up and level within reason, and packs down small.

Does what it has to do

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Pro: Very light, very compact, boils water very quickly, has a incorporated fire starter.
Cons: might not work properly in high altitude

Avoid putting other things then water, it will make a mess.

Thoroughly Impressed

I cannot believe the power that this little thing has! For what it has to offer, it packs up incredibly tight, is not heavy at all, and boils water very quickly. It is very easy to use, adjust the heat, and is easy to handle when hot. This model does NOT have the heat indicator- however, from everyone that I know who has used that feature before, they all agree that it's better off without it anyways. I hands down would recommend this stove to anyone and everyone looking for a lightweight packable stove for getting out!

Just get it !!!!!!!!!

I use it almost all the time when ever Im in mountains.
Thermo-Regulate Burner Technology works amazing :)

If you want to TUNE UP your jet boil to boil faster in very low temperatures, just put hand warmer into sock and put on your fuel canister(so warmer will be under of the bottom of fuel canister) and you will see the difference in time to boil the water.

Just get it !!!!!!!!!

DOES NOT HAVE HEAT INDICATOR ANYMORE!!!

BACKCOUNTRY SHOW IT WITH IT!! They offered full refund but i got priced matched and other company sold out already and id have to pay $20 more just to get flash!!

Responded on

I have last years model (the one with the heat indicator) and I can tell you that you are much better off with the one that you have! In fact, I'd be willing to send you that "cozy" with the indicator if I hadn't already tossed it out.

First, the indicator is pointless really - it is very easy to hear when your water is boiling or you can simply peer through the sipping hole. Also, outside of extreme temperatures, it consistently takes the same short amount of time to boil water. Lets not overcomplicate boiling water.

Secondly, and most importantly, the old cozy was too thin - to the point where you could burn your hand just trying to get the cup off of the burner after boiling water. JetBoil had to update the new version to avoid this potential hazard (and graciously sent me an updated one as well). My assumption is that to keep the weight down with the thicker cozy, the indicator had to go.. or they just realized it wasn't necessary. If you want the fancy extras and don't mind the extra weight, go with the flash. Long story short, the SOL rocks, especially with this years updated insulation cozy!

Yeah was just a little dissapointed when i expected it.. But i do still love backcountry and my jetboil.

Great Solo Stove

I've used this on most of my winter camping trips and some summer. Mostly for melting snow for water, but also for cooking noodles or rice. It's not the fastest at boiling, but it pretty darn good, and weighs next to nothing.

So practical

Almost never use my liquid fuel stove anymore. So compact I even bring it on day hikes for coffee. Really all you need for most cooking tasks. A canister lasts a really really long time. Used it down to 10 degrees with no problem.
