Love love love the Jetboil! The best backpacking purchase I've ever made, especially with the java kit. I can cook gourmet meals in this thing. Only two things keep me from giving it 6 stars: 1) can't simmer very easily in this... I just switch back in forth between off and low... but it is made for boiling water so I expected this; 2) backcountry.com doesn't allow 6 stars. Buy one!

Not a whole lot to say other than there's a HUGE difference between a cheap bladder and a good bladder. Very rugged, very solid, you can tell a lot of thought was put into the design. I actually put my 3L Hydraform (filled with only 2L) in the Airspeed on my Osprey Atmos 35 and it works great. No complaints really. Perfect complement to any Osprey pack.

Great pad for the money, very good construction. Used a comparable Thermarest a few weeks back and really could tell no difference (other than the price and and the fact that this one is built better). I like that brass threads were used instead of plastic, should hold up way better. The self-inflating feature works great if you just roll it out, open the valve, and let it sit for a few mins... every time I did this I only had to put an extra two breaths in and we were good. I like the way it comes with the patch kit just in case you get a puncture in the wilderness... met an AT thru-hiker a few weeks back that had to wake up every hour and reinflate his sleeping pad that would have loved this feature. The only negative I can think of is the sack that it stores in is loose... I really wish it had compression straps to it or something. Overall a wonderful pad that I would highly recommend, especially if spotted on SAC.
