    Must Have For Camping

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the second jet boil I have had and they never disappoint. The speed of the boil is fantastic and I usually just have coffee or oatmeal for breakfast which is extremely easy. You can also get a french press that fits this stove and the propane lasts a lot longer than it looks. Also the packing efficiency is great.

    How is something this good this cheap?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was blown away by the efficiency of this camp stove. While backpacking light, I chose an item just to boil water for my instant coffee and freeze dried meals. This was the perfect product, and it didn't break the bank!!! At 8k elevation and 50 mph winds, it boiled water in just over 1 minute. And it packs down into itself! I couldn't be more pleased with this product!

    Perfect For Going Solo

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My wife and I first purchased a Jetboil Sumo for car camping and group outings where we are cooking for multiple mouths. We were impressed from the first use, everything works flawlessly and it boiled large quantities of water speedily, with minimal fuel usage and works in terrible conditions.
    So, I decided for lighter backpacking trips, I would snag this guy, and was not disappointed. Same great functionality, but in a great solo package.

    Love Jetboil

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have owned several variations of Jetboils over the last couple years. This one is my favorite because it is compact and lightweight, and it also provides a great amound of volume to heat water with.

    A Favorite Gear Item

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got this to use for coffee and dehydrated/freeze dried meals on a 4 day/3 night backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon. It's so lightweight, compactable, and easy to use that it made meals simple and clean up a breeze. Wouldn't have done food any other way!

    Must have!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is such a great piece of gear and SO useful that I guarantee you'll find some uses for it that will easily justify the cost. The starter system is no frills and requires matches (which I'd prefer to any kind of electronic starter). Boils water super quick and can more than handle any kind of coffee or oatmeal you throw its way. It also collapses into a very slight and compact unit that I thoroughly appreciated.

    Great Little Stove

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This stove fires right up and brings water to a boil quickly. It has a good amount of room for your food/coffee and the can is quite durable.

    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

    Single Person system


    • 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!

    What's the difference between this and the Jet Boil Flash?

    Hey Grizzly,

    There are a few difference between the Zip and Flash!

    Zip: .8L pot, Match ignition, 12oz weight.

    Flash: 1L pot, piezo ignition, 14oz weight

    Let me know if you have any other questions or would like to set up an order!



    Is pot stabilizer included?

    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 -

    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 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

    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.

    Yes the stove is shorter it is a .08 liter . You can fit all the goodies in here the instructions inside the stove will show you how to properly stack. The Zip does not have an ignitor you need to light with a lighter .

    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.
    I know this info is likely a little late to be any help to b-b4632460 but another shopper may find it useful.
