Hills of Kentucky
I’m getting back into camping and now getting into backpacking. After seeing this stove demonstrated at a local supplier (The Trail Store), I was sold! I’ve used it now a few times in the hills around Kentucky and am planning on taking it out west on some trips. It’s so light and compact and boils water so efficiently. I often show it to friends and they’re equally impressed. I always carry it with me in my truck and I’ll never be in the outdoors without it again. I love it!
Beloved gear for a variety of activities
I just wanted to chime in and say how much I have enjoyed using my Jetboil for a variety of activities. I spend every possible minute outdoors either fishing, backcountry camping, mountaineering, boating, or paintballing/military training. For every one of these activities, my Jetboil goes with me. When I want fast and light, I use the Companion Cup, when I am with a group it is great to have the pot and frying pan as options. I was even able to make myself lunch while my position was under attack during a military training evolution!! I have yet to find an outdoor product as innovative as yours. Well done! -thanks, David Thompson!
Helios is chocolate-worthy
REI upgrades annual Twinkie Roast with the addition of Helios systems. Ingredients: Twinkies or other tubular, filled snack cake, chocolate bars or chips Technique: place an inch of water in Helios pot. Place chocolate in heat-resistant bowl and place in Helios pot. heat on low flame, while stirring. This double-boiler strategy works great for cheese fondue, as well.

Great tool when hungry kids are asking for “fast food”....

The PCS is in every bag I carry, both my hiking and my camera. As a location-based photographer, it is always great to have an easy cup of coffee at my side. The models love it too!
Tiger MannMy wife and I keep a Jetboil in our son Jeremiah’s diaper bag/backpack so we can heat up milk or formula wherever we are. Recently, my 6-year-old nephew was playing baseball and Jeremiah and I were watching. Jeremiah got hungry and…in less than two minutes (which included setting up the Jetboil)...he had some nice, warm milk for a snack! Cheers!
Last night on my way home, I happened to stop at a friend’s house for a cold beer and to make a hot cup of coffee. Now, before I go any further, let me tell you that this house is currently occupied by two botanists, one herpetologist, one geologist, and two BLM wildland firefighters. All of these guys – like myself – rack up some serious field time on, and off, the job. In short, the kind of guys that live off their gear. Upon firing up the Jetboil, everyone was really impressed with the fact that everything nests inside the cup, and even more impressed with the extremely rapid – to say the very least – boil time. Then, of course, everyone had to break out the stove setup they’d been using and compare for weight, burn time, etc. Having impressed the crowd, I then proceeded to break out the coffee press. That did it, even the guy who wasn’t quite happy about the weight (he currently uses a homemade teeny-tiny alcohol burner) was sold. Today, four of these guys came home with new Jetboils. The other two are waiting until payday!
