Ladies love JetboilI do love my Jetboil. It is my little self-contained, reliable provider of hot food when I need it. It is my holder of hot chocolate and my 'I need to eat dinner NOW!' savior. But basically I love it because it always works and I don't need help with it. I don't have to fiddle with it ever! I just put my stuff in and in minutes I'm eating. This picture is from mile 36 of the Loyalsock Trail, dinner on day three of the trip, and the smiles on our faces... well that's from getting somewhere under our own power to see the view, smell the hemlocks, and feel the wind in a place you can't drive to and that pictures do not do justice. Having the right gear makes that possible. I'll continue to proselytize about my Jetboil!
Kyle, Amanda, and friends- conservation efforts in Smoky Mts. Nat'l ParkTwelve Ohio State University Students traveled to The Smoky Mountains National Park to volunteer for the National Park Service in conjunction with the American Hiking Society. We worked closely with National Park Service Park Rangers to treat hemlock trees for the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid (HWA), an invasive insect that is currently killing hemlock trees in the Eastern United States. We learned how to determine the quantity of chemical treatment to apply to the trees by measuring the diameter at breast height (DBH) of each individual tree. We spent most of our time trekking through steep mountain slopes off trail to reach the most vulnerable old growth hemlock trees. We removed and chemically treated multi-flora rose, an invasive plant from Asia, from certain areas within the park. Throughout the course of the entire week, we saved 671 hemlock trees, removed thousands of multi-flora rose, and cleaned three historical houses. Our work benefited not only the National Park Service and the Smoky Mountain Park Rangers, but the thousands of nature lovers that visit the park each year and the surrounding Smoky Mountain National Park community. Finally, I can say with certainty that each of us will look back on this trip with fond memories of friends, learning, and service and that none of us could imagine spending our spring break any other way! We would like to take this opportunity to thank Jet Boil for recognizing our project and deeming it worthy of a donation. Your products were a real big hit in our auction and we could not have made this trip possible without your generosity!

Thank you Jetboil for the best and most reliable stove out there! With the temps hovering around the twenty degree mark at night and the fifty's in the day we were able to catch six of the "Prehistoric Monsters of the Snake River"! Weighing in at around five hundred pounds and seven and a half foot long they take a bit of energy to pull in. Thanks to my GCS and PCS we had plenty of protein-packed meals and a successful weekend! This will be the only stove in my gear for years to come!
Diane Van Deren, Yukon Arctic Ultra Race Winner
After being the first female American who just completed the Yukon Arctic Ultra Race, which is considered the worlds hardest, coldest, and most extreme event in the world, the Jetboil stove was a huge contribution to my success. I was running and trekking 430 miles in the Yukon Arctic in -40 degree temps pulling a 50 pounds sled with all my gear, clothing, and food. The Jetboil stove was a true survivor in the elements I endured and reliable for preparing and cooking meals in these kind of conditions. The Jetboil is so easy to set up and within minutes I had boiling water made from melted snow to make meals to warm and fuel my body to take on such an extreme event. I would recommend this stove to anyone who is looking for simplicity; efficient, light, and reliable to get you from point to point. Thank you Jetboil for an excellent product.

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.

Wayne Mills, Dunbarton, NHLast summer my family and I visited Acadia National Park in Maine and camped for the better part of a week. The experience was one of a lifetime! I thought you would be happy to hear that during our stay we used our Jetboil to cook all our heated meals. My twelve year old son even mastered mac & cheese on a Jetboil - an essential for great camping. Thanks for your part in an enjoyable getaway.
Robert Ong, Director, Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society
I was turned on to Jetboil by an elk hunting friend 2 seasons ago. In August and September of this year I spent 31 days in some of the most rugged Colorado mountains chasing sheep at elevations up to 14,300. The great news is I could also have a hot meal within minutes because I carried a Jetboil and dehydrated food everywhere I went. You can only eat so many energy bars....and it was like Christmas morning every time I poured the water into a pouch and set my watch for 8 minutes. My life revolves around hunting and my Jetboil is one of my top (can't live without) pieces of gear.
Wyatt "Doc" Sabo, US Marines
Jetboil is the best personal cooking system I have ever used. I have used a 220 gram fuel canister around 30 times for boiling water for hot chocolate, Ramen, freeze dried, and winter MREs. It always lights within a few tries. It even worked over here in Afghanistan while it was 10 degrees outside. Cleaning is even easy. This product is amazing. My Marines and I are very thankful.
Diesel Dan, wildland fire fighter
When I first got my Jetboil back in 2006, I instantly became the envy of my fire crew. No longer was I stuck eating plain old MRE's. With my new Jetboil, I could cook up a whole assortment of tasty food. My Jetboil was such a hit with the crew, at the end of the year almost everyone had one of their own. Now 3 years later, it’s still going strong. I use it almost every day, even if I’m not out on the line. It’s extremely well-made, versatile and is compact. Looking back, I don't know what I would do without my Jetboil. What an awesome product!!!
