    Jet Boil

    Hello, new to the forum and my first post...been a couple years since I started researching a Jet Boil, have they changed much since then? I have always used an Optimus, but I want to get away from the white gas...

    I have the Jet Boil TI and like it. If you do a search under Jet Boil in the search field on this forum you will see more than a couple threads on comparisons and opinions on it. I'll bet they will come out with more changes making them lighter more fuel efficient in the future too. Welcome to the Eastmans' Forum THEBuzz.

    well, after reading reviews, I went with a Jet Boil Zip....price was a factor as I have wanted to save a little "here" for maybe a nicer "there"....

    I use the Hotshot stove and have for years. However this year I did get the JetBoil cup for boiling water in. It saved over buying the whole kit and it is compatible with my small stove. Those things can boil water FAST!!

    Very nice light weight addition to my day pack for sure!
