    Single Person system

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This is a absolutely amazing single person cooking system. I highly recommend getting this JetBoil if you are just boiling water for quick morning meals like oatmeal or Coffee. I have used this in alot of different environments from heavy snow fall to summer camping. I will say if you are boiling water in the winter it will take a little longer but still a excellent system. It is very handy to have all of the components fit right into the pot. Yes it is a little bulky compared to the lighter single person cooking stoves but worth the extra sizing for the convince

    Bomber

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I first saw a Jetboil in action when I went through land survival school in the military. The instructors used them and made us students boil water the hard way; in a can, over a fire, in the rain and snow. The Jetboil boils water so fast it is impressive. When I started backpacking and mountaineering I bought the Zip. 1. It's smaller, which means lighter and easier to fit in a pack. I had read that the cup of the Sol was thinner and I wanted something that would take some abuse. 2. It's old school. There is no built in ignition, which means less stuff to break. I like using a flint striker to light it, hasn't failed yet (5 years). 3. It's cheaper. We all want the really fancy gear, but who can really afford it? Not this guy, but for the money the Zip is legit.

    Hot water super fast

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    My least favorite part of camping is getting up in the cold and waiting for coffee to brew in a percolator. With the Jetboil my wait time is cut exponentially (with the help of Starbucks actual drinkable instant coffee, but would be great for a press as well). Super light and compact this works well for backpacking, or to speed up car camping. Would recommend to anyone lacking patience like myself.

    Coffee... QUICK!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    There are two things my boyfriend and I pride ourselves on... The perfect cup of coffee, and super-deluxe oatmeal. Two things that we don't have to ever give up, even at 10,000 ft+! Our JetBoil is the perfect sunrise coffee companion boiling at hyperspeed.

    Hint for coffee fiends: once the little heat indicator swirls have almost all changed, turn off the heat and pour in your grounds!

    Now enjoy the new day!

    Stove or not for 3 days on the big wall?

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Wether its waking up on the porta-ledge or crawling out of my bivy somewhere on the Cathedral traverse, I'm tired of eating cold crap for dinner and not having tea in the morning. Yet my super tiny stove doesn't do well when the ground is made of Nylon, or a chopped ice step. I needed something that was both efficient and could hold itself together when precariously placed in a dangerous area. Thanks to the highly technical hose clamp and old road bike tube I was able fashion a cheap hanging device (with help from the internet of course) that let it stay where I put it. It even heats water real fast when its windy! But don't ever make your tea, or (gasp) spigot inside the pot or a lightning bolt from Zeus will surely strike down you and your stove for not following the directions. Not to mention, you are going to need that lightning bolt because IT DOESNT HAVE A PIEZIO LIGHTER. Better get out those water proof matches or TSA restricted gas lighters. I think that 1 or 2 oz difference, may be lost in the 3 lighters I need to carry so I can find 1 in the hall bag after dropping two on the poor saps below. adequate for the job, limited use, and expensive. I'd probably spend more next time and get the piezio lighter. Did I mention there isn't any room inside for that tiny lighter? Better pack it somewhere else, or better yet bring a special stuff sack labeled 'lighters.' That way the TSA can find it a bit easier when they ransack you haul bag.



    Spend the extra money and get the built in lighter, and remember, no Romin Noodles in that thing! kprts.blogspot.com

    Stove or not for 3 days on the big wall?

    Perfect lightweight cooking system

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    If you are thinking of what kind of stove you need for a backpacking trip look no further. The jetboil zip cooking system is light, fast, and incredibly effective in even some of the harshest conditions. Fuel is very easy to transport for this stove and because of it's size can really be taken anywhere. Having given this as a gift but also selling a ton of them to customers it's hard to argue that you can find a better cooking stove for size, weight, and performance.

    Great camp stove, highly recommended

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Took this on my last trip and it performed really well. Waking up to the 30 degree mornings, it boiled the water for my coffee in just a couple minutes. I like that everything, including the small fuel canisters, fit inside the cup. It really keeps it neat and together.



    The only complaints I have are that sometimes it was a bit finicky to light. and the bottom cover never seemed to stay on (I guess mine got damaged somehow).



    Overall, I'm really happy with this cooking system and have recommended it to all of my friends.

    I like it!

      I used it for the first time this weekend. It worked great. Melted snow quickly and boiled water quickly. The only thing and it might just be me but I had trouble lighting it. I dont know why but it took a several tries to get it to ignite. I was at 7,000ft. I dont now if that plays a part.



      So I just tried to cook a package of the Pasta Sides you can get at the grocery store. It didnt go so well. It calls for 16oz of water (which easily fits in the Jetboil. Then add the ingredients and bring to a boil. When it starts to boil it spills over and makes a huge mess. I tried to adjust the heat level but didnt seem to have much effect. Maybe use less water? Anyone else tried making Pasta Side in a Jetboil?

      I've heard that placing a wooden spoon, or I guess a stick in the backcountry, keeps it from boiling over. I haven't tries it, but that is what I've been told. I do know that at home a cube of ice calms it back down without messing up the cooking. Maybe try squirting a bit of cooler water in it when it starts erupting. Let me know if either of these work!

      You'll be very happy with a Jetboil Zip

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      This was my stove on the AT - I loved it. Boils in a flash, high quality construction, and you can fit its complementary pieces (and the smaller fuel canister) inside of it for storage. I used to be a professional cook for 5 years, and I can't be happier with how this performed on the trail. No complaints. Great product.

      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.

      Great Product

      Nice stove, but one issue

      • 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.

      Nice stove, but one issue

      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 temperatures....it 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.

        Is pot stabilizer included?

        Hey Pablo,



        Thanks for your question.



        It comes with the orange fuel canister support but it does not come with the attachable metal pot stabilizer. That is sold separately - http://www.jetboil.com/Products/Locking-Pot-Support-and-Stabilizer-Kit/



        I hope this helps.

        Can I use an 8in GSI Pinnacle pot with this stove?

        Best Answer

        You could probably get away with it but, it wont sit nicely on the stove. This stove is really only meant to be used with Jet Boil accessories. This way you can lock the pot to the stove, in a pinch the stove will heat the GSI pot just wont be pretty.

        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?

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

        Best Answer

        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 http://www.backcountry.com/entrees.

        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.

        Anyone own both this and the PCS? If so...

        Anyone own both this and the PCS? If so is the stove itself physically shorter from top to bottom is you put them on a desk? I ask because with the PCS system once you put the canister and stove inside (not threaded to the canister and with the stabilizer legs inside the stove and the pot support upside down over the canister) you're only left with about 1\4" of space (which is taken up by the igniter). I can't see how all that will fit in here since it's over half an inch shorter, unless of course the stove itself is shorter.

        So you own both? Is the stove the same or is it in fact physically shorter from top to bottom?

        If not, do the instruction say that the stove must be threaded to the cartridge for everything to be able to nest inside?

        what is the difference between this stove and the jetboil flash cooking system?

        Best Answer

        Kirk and Eli are both right. In addition, the Flash weighs 14 oz and the Zip weighs 12 oz according to official specs but the Zip was 11.625 oz on my scale. The lid on Zip has a strainer feature (19 small holes in a cluster) for draining things like pasta. The lid on the Flash does not but it attaches to the pot more firmly. The Zip comes in black only (lid, cozy, bottom cover and burner but the flash has three colour options if you include the companion cup. Also the lid and bottom cover on the Flash are translucent matching the respective colour scheme. The Flash has the the updated wire lancet fuel control but the Zip still has the old style knob. The pot on the Zip has graduation marking in metric and standard (200, 300, 400 & 500 ml / 8, 12 & 16 oz) but the Flash has only one marking indicating "MAX SAFE FILL / 2 CUPS". The cozy on Zip has a small illustration showing the proper packing method.
        Note: Neither of these have the "thermal-regulate" feature that Sol has.
