Jetboil on Mt. Rainier
All I use is the Jetboil and I convince any climbing partner away from any other options. From day trips to multi-day alpine climbs where I'll be melting snow for water, the combination of ease of use, efficiency, compact packing, and weight make it the only thing I will carry with me. Throw in the hanging kit and now I can't wait to get cozy in my tent and start brewing up some hot drinks, especially on unplanned bivies! Thanks! :) Doug
Helios love from Shishapangma / TibetWe love your stove! This is a picture on our most recent expedition to Shishapangma in Tibet May 2010. It was taken by my husband Scott at camp 1 at 20'000 feet. This stove rocks! Thanks, Nicole Clark
Jetboil in Los Torres del Paine, Chile
Charles Laarsen took his Jetboil to Los Torres del Paine, Chile. "(We) hiked up for day break (5:45 AM) on the towers. We were pretty cold, and brewed some tea up there using the Jet Boil. I am actually holding the Jetboil because as I said we were freezing our asses off and the civilized man that I am had to have my morning cup of tea. Earl Grey nor Jetboil failed me that morning. People were suffering hard from the weight of their other gear, and the inability to shelter it from the wind. I hit three foul days of rain with winds ranging from 70-100 kph. I did everything from cook inside of small three sided shelters, my tent, and braced against two trees for protection from the wind. I still managed to eat three squares. I took nothing more than two sporks and the Jetboil for my cousin and I. He bailed on day #3, but I rallied 60 miles in 4.5 days."
Jetboil on Mount MeruJetboils have been integral to the success of many trips now and has, in several case, been integral to my survival high in the mountains. The product is well designed and has significantly reduced the amount of fuel and weight I need to carry on my climbs. Thank you! -Photographer Jimmy Chin (Mt. Meru expedition 2009)

I spend eight to ten months out of the year climbing around the world. Jetboil has simply become the standard issue when it comes to what stove climbers choose to bring on big technical ascents. It is the lightest, easiest to use and best thought out stove on the market – by far! I find it rare that in the current highly competitive outdoor industry that a product can stand out as clearly better then all the rest but Jetboil does this. I won't use any other stove.

For 3 days we were caught in a snow storm on the summit of Mt. Fury, where our only source of water was melting snow. The stove we had with us was a Jetboil. I had never used one before (it was my climbing partner’s stove), but I was pleasantly surprised at how well it handled our desperate situation on the mountain top. It’s fuel and heating efficiency as well as simple design made it the ideal stove. Thanks to the Jetboil, we were able to keep hydrated as well as keep ourselves warm with hot meals and drinks. It really was essential in this unexpected situation. Jetboil will be my next backcountry gear purchase!

Wanted to let you know how much I truly love your product. I am a mountaineer, and my frequented havens include the likes of Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Glacier Peak, Mt. Baker, etc… anything that is moderately climb-able in the Pacific Northwest. Let me tell you that when I am finished moving for the day and the temperature starts to plunge, I am SO thankful that I have my Jetboil, as I am not messing around with priming a fuel bottle and pumping the bottle so that it doesn’t flame up … I am the first one with boiling water every time – I love it! I am a Park Ranger with the State of Washington, and people ask me for recommended gear all the time – I always recommend the Jetboil, simply the best stove out there!

On a mountain where one in seven summiters die, every piece of gear has to be fool-proof. After using Jetboils on other expeditions, it was the only stove we trusted on our successful ascent of K2.
I have just returned from a successful trip to Patagonia. We reached the summit of Fitz Roy on November 4th. We climbed the route we were planning in a 36 hour round trip from base camp… It was an amazing mountain and that Jetboil was our key to traveling light. Thanks!
