My father taught me how to camp before he taught me how to talk or walk! Thanks to my dad I have been hooked on the outdoors since I was a toddler. I married a wonderful man 4 years ago who has the same passion for the outdoors, especially backpacking. We purchased a Jetboil PCS two years ago, which we share. It has made camping, backpacking and day hikes a dream. My other passion in life is cooking. It has been a fun challenge to create recipes using the Jetboil.

I recently climbed Southern California’s Mt Gorgonio. At 11,500 feet we rested for a lunch of soup and coffee. I was concerned that the elevation might come into play on this hike but my Jetboil roared to a boil in no time at all. This stove is the best piece of equipment that I own!

A couple of months back Jetboil generously donated 2 GCS to our hiking/camping club for the purposes of hiking to Havasupai Falls. Our trip was a huge success and the Jetboils were excellent.
Dan LastI will admit that I was a skeptic when I first heard of your product as it seemed too small to be able to function under tough conditions. I just returned from a two day hike down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon where my new Jetboil fed three men for the duration of the trip. Soups, Pasta, and countless cups of coffee were served, however, the favorite was by far my spicy vegetarian black bean burritos! Thanks for such a great product – one that has quickly become a must-have in my pack.
The Jetboil proved ideal for long term heavy use on my PCT thru hike. It is a neat design, amazingly reliable, easy to use, and once the weight savings in gas are factored in, comparable with any lighter stove system.
I just wanted to let you know that I really love my Jetboil… I just got back from a 3 month hiking/kayaking trip and it worked perfectly. I hope to be thru hiking the PCT this spring and will def be taking it. There is a photo attached of breakfast with the jb and denali in the background.
J C Von SchimmelmannMy family and I just completed a four day, 22 mile backpack trip in the beautiful Oregon Cascades. I received for Christmas a new Jetboil, and this was its maiden voyage. WOW! What a great stove! I have been backpacking over thirty-five years have used a variety of stoves. The Jetboil out shines all of the competition. The only down side was cooking for a group. I received my REI catalog upon our return and on the back cover… voila, the solution! Jetboil group cooking system! BRAVO! I am looking forward to many trips with my Jetboils! Thanks for such a great product!
Michael J. PondI would like to thank you for combining modern day technology with simplicity. I am an Upward Bound instructor specializing in introducing high school students to an 11-day wilderness experience. In our travels, students are exposed to rock climbing, whitewater canoeing and kayaking, sea kayaking, expedition canoeing, backpacking, and the benefits of a high ropes and low ropes team course. Based on years of experience and having access to almost every stove on the market, I have no reservations in saying, “I love the Jetboil!” The creators of Jetboil have gotten it right. The best features of the system are its simplicity, weight, and cooking efficiency. Last year, I introduced the system while backpacking in the Porcupine Mountains of Upper Michigan. The students’ look of total bewilderment was unforgettable. The students raved about the speed and functionality of my system versus the stoves they were issued. Upon our return back to civilization, I witnessed several students and their friends purchasing their own Jetboils at the local mountaineer store at which I work. It was nice to see my former students entering back into the wilderness with a stove that will provide them safe and reliable service for many years to come. Thank you Jetboil, for creating the best canister-based cooking system on the market, that continues to evolve!
My wife and I just spent 5 days in the Big South Fork eating 3 meals a day cooked in our Jetboil. We found several interesting recipes in a book called “Lipsmackin’ Backpackin’” by Tim and Christine Conners. We also dehydrated our own favorite chili recipe in our food dehydrator. With help from the book and a little imagination plus the efficiency and portability of the Jetboil we ate better in the back country than most people do at home. We also bought the French press accessory and had great coffee with our oatmeal every morning. Breakfast with coffee, a hot lunch and a hot dinner. We were very pleased and are recommending the Jetboil to all our friends.
