Alan Johnson, MD, Scout Leader
I love camping and I love coffee. I bought a Jetboil with the french press attachment just before a trip to scouting paradise; Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. The other 2 adult leaders had expectations of instant coffee for the entire 10 days on the trail, but I had other plans. Every morning and most evenings I would fire up the jetboil and in a minute or two pour everyone a delicious cup of Kenyan Dark Roast. We would share with other leaders on the trail, and end up doing a product demo most days. Although the "Philmont Way" is cooking in 8 qt pots, I would use the Jetboil to preheat the water and get supper cooked faster. A perfect use for a great product.

Even on my first night, right out of my backpack, the Jetboil was turning heads. While others primed their white gas or doled out denatured alcohol, at the push of a button, I was fired up and cooking . . . I have used the stove to boil an average of four cups of water a day. The first canister of fuel lasted 200 miles.
I took my family (wife Julie son TY daughter Kayla) into the Eagle Cap wilderness for our only vacation this summer and we cooked solely with our JETBOIL system. We had coffee and hot cocoa and heated all the water for our Mountainhouse meals. I’ve also used it a lot snowshoeing in cold temps and it works very well we are very very pleased!! Thank You for a product that makes my family warm and cozy on the inside.

I started out with the GCS prior to my latest long distance motorcycle adventure. I then decided that I couldn’t live without coffee in the morning so I added a companion cup and coffee press. My riding buddy brought his white gas stove but after I prepared my first meal on the GCS his stove didn’t come out again. I prepared several meals that required from a full boil to low simmer. The stove was up to the task. We went 5 days on the road using the stove every morning for coffee and at night for whatever culinary delight we had picked up during the day and still have fuel left over in the container. I have now rethought my ability to cook on the road. It is so quick that lunch on the road can now be hot, and not from the road side diner!

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!

Thanks Jetboil- The hot chocolate and coffees kept me going on those cold mornings in Bindoon, Perth WA.
Dear Jetboil, I am a novice backpacker. My two boys and I have been learning together about the great outdoors. We recently purchased a Jetboil to prepare the water for our Mountainhouse meals. Wow. It truly is incredible. A salesperson at told me about it and of course I was skeptical. I was truly impressed ... We were in the Tahoe National Forest at about 7000 ft. I thought you might enjoy seeing your product at work. Thanks again for a great product. Worth every penny!
Whitney Phillips, President of Mad River Rocket Co. Inc.Notes from a backcountry ski trip: “Basically it was a blizzard. We were all cold pretty close to freezing-cold, wet and tired. Our stove wouldn’t work and we ran into a guy up there with a Jetboil. He gave us all a bit of tea with some peppermint Schnapps and basically saved our asses. I thought that I was all set with the stove I have but I am now a firm believer in your set-up.”

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.
Having just spent 10 days on my annual bear hunting trip to Alaska I have to applaud you for such a fantastic product. We had 3 Jetboils between the 7 of us and all were used every day even though our base camp was a 60 ft boat. Their is nothing like a great cup of coffee on the beach in 40 degree weather while sitting waiting for a bear all day long. I spend an average of 3 months in Alaska every year both hunting and fishing and I can say that the Jetboil will accompany me on every trip from now on. I have been in the outdoor industry for almost 15 years now and I can’t remember when the last time something so innovative was introduced.
