Here's what others have to say...

I recently ordered this from Backcountry. I love the stove, but the pictures for the product shows the pot stabilizer as part of the stove. I received the orange base/fuel stabilizer, but the pot burner stabilizer was not included.
Should it have been? Or do I need to order one?

Responded on

Hey Brady,
The pot stabilizer is sold separately, sorry about the confusion.

Responded on


Part of the confusion may be because the Jetboil Zip Cooking System was once sold with the pot stabilizer included, but Jetboil has decided to make this an add-on item for this model going forward.

Great and Fast Product

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Took this on a 2 week road trip on the west coast and loved being able to make hot tea fast and easy in the morning. Plan on using it for many more road trips and camping excursions. Highly recommend this.

Great Product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This product is great for many reasons. Not only does the zip system boil water within minutes on a blistering cold night/morning but it fits and stores so well in you backpack for multiple packing days. I have had my zip system for 2 years now and love it! I use the cooking system for other pots and pans as well. The bigger jetboil cooking systems are nice...but in the end , the zip is well worth the buy, because if you are like me and love to use every space you can in your bag...then the zip is the way to go.

Nice stove, but one issue

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

My only gripe with this stove is that the knob that regulates the fuel is too small and slippery. In fact, while cooking some ramen noodles I nearly blew myself up (lol!). I took my eyes off the stove just for a second and I had boiling water overflowing. Since the knob was so small, it was a sketchy situation trying to turn down the fuel with boiling water overflowing. With the more expensive Jetboil's, the fuel knob is longer piece of wire that extends out more, making it a heck of a lot easier to turn the fuel on or off. My friends still laugh about that time I almost blew myself up with the Jetboil.

Outside of the fuel knob issue, this is a great stove. Lightweight, packs easily, and boils extremely fast. As far as the specific Jetboil ZIP model, I would recommend spending the extra $20 and getting the Jetboil PCS, just for the extended fuel knob. Although, most people probably are a lot more careful when cooking than I am.

Great portability for hot food

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great product for backpacking or car camping. Boils water in about 45 seconds, even at 14,000-plus feet (I like to enjoy a hot meal after a peak climb). Ideal for dehydrated meal packages, instant mash potatoes, noodles, or frozen vac sealed meals. Weighs very little and the fuel canisters tend to last me surprisingly long.

Simple, Light, and instant

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really like my Jet. Awhile back, my friends where using jetboil while I used my MSR Whisper. I wanted one! I love my MSR Whisper and I still use it depending on where and when. But for light and warmer weather outings, I have the Jetboil. I like this smaller one, like how simple it is and quick it boils. I like that it comes with a pan adapter so if I want to pan fry I can. I have used this Jetboil in all conditions and works great except for winter camping trips that get below -10. The compressed fuel canisters don't like that kind of cold and you have to warm up the canister to get the flame hot. I will be using my MSR for this kind of weather. BUT, this is a must have. Even for Mountaibiking!

Simple, Easy to use and pack

I have used several different backpacking stoves (MSR Whisperlite, Homemade Alcohol Stove) and I am very impressed by the JetBoil zip. Got mine on sale from BackCountry for $60 with free shipping. Because I use my stove primarily for boiling water and making soups/dried meals, the jetboil is perfect for me. Although not as light as the homemade alcohol can stove, it is much faster, reliable and windproof. Everything stores nicely in the cup and the insulated grip is also nice. Long distance ultra-lite hikers may want to stick with the soda can stove, but for a few nights on the trail, nothing seems better than the jetboil zip. It's ease of setup and quick boiling time make it ideal for mountaineering and colder-weather treks where you can make a hot cup of tea or ramen without much time. As far as altitude/colder takes longer to boil water in general in both conditions, which requires more fuel/time no matter what you are using to cook. All in all, I'd recommend the Jetboil zip to any solo hiker or mountaineer who wants a great quality stove at just a little more weight.

I got this for my boyfriend that enjoys camping and he absolutely loves it. It works great! We have used it every camping trip we've been on. It's convenient and lights easily, even with a flint spark!

Can I fly with this system in my carry-on?...

Can I fly with this system in my carry-on? (without the butane fuel of course)

I would check with TSA but I don't see a reason why you wouldn't be able to

I did today, it's totally fine. They asked if it was a coffee maker! haha I wouldn't worry about it at all.

How many people could his stove cook for on a 3 day backpacking trip?

Responded on

This stove would be suitable for a small (2-3) group on a 3-day backpacking trip. Without the ability to use a frying pan you are limited in cooking bigger meals and have to utilize one pot wonders, which are great. If you chose to go the dehydrated food way that would be an option as you would use the stove just to boil water and not heat/cook food, you can take a look here

Responded on

Yeah, you could pull off 2-3 people, but you're going to burn more fuel with separate boiling/cooking for each additional person. It's still only really a solo pot, with the ability to only boil 1/2L of water at a time. That's generally about enough for a 2-person freeze-dried entree from Mountain House, although I've seldom seen anyone not eat most or all of that sized serving by themselves. Also, cooking up "regular food" is still only going to get you the same volume as well at one time...pretty much one person...maybe. With several people, or even a couple, you would probably be better off splitting the components of a separate stove/pot/fuel set-up with at least a 1.5-2L pot if you want to all eat at one time and keep the fuel use to a minimum.

This thing works great! Was in the woods for three days, used it for cooking and making coffee with no problems at all. In the summer heat of Kentucky, it boils water in a lot less time than advertised!

Kicks Butt

Took this on a rim-to-rim hike in the Grand Canyon. My dad brought an MSR stove. I boiled water 4 times over for 4 people's dehydrated meals in the time it took him to get the 1 to a boil. At the end of the trip, I gave the stove to my dad as a gift for putting the whole trip together. Now, I'm going to replace it with the exact same model.

This stove is great for anyone looking for a small compact stove. Quick to boil the stove boils water in a minutes weather depending. All the components of the stove fit inside of the body of the pot making packing the stove efficient and easy.

Bring matches.

Good for light, summer, low altitude backpacking.

Worked well for me!

Had one cannister of fuel for a 3 day ski camping trip at 10,000 feet and pretty cold. Got the job done! Only think i wish i would have done was got the next model up with the spark ignite, so i wouldnt be out of luck if i lost my matches/lighter.

Not to thrilled with it

First off the positives about it: I love the compact design and how easy the system is to use. Also, the pots and pans that jetboil makes work great even with other stoves and I really recommend those. When in the right climate this stove boils water at incredible rate.

Why I ended up not liking this is because it only works well in warmer climates and lower altitudes. It boils amazing fast when I'm doing some local camping trips but when you're in colder climates or higher altitudes, you're just going to burn a lot of fuel. Also, I have had a lot of trouble with the ignition system. I always have another way to light it, but it's a little disappointing to have it but not have it work.

Maybe I was just misinformed about it's capabilities when I purchased it from a local store, but for alpine use I would look at something else. However, if all you are using it for is summer time low altitude use, go for it, this thing is sweet. I'm just the type of person who wants to buy one quality item that can be used in various situations. I'd rather not have several different stoves like I have now.
