Jetboil for Happy Camping

camp_cookingIf you’ve ever gone camping with a stove before, you might have had the unfortunate experience of the sharp metal parts ripping your pack wide open. Maybe you planned ahead and worked out some alternative to carrying your stove inside your pack, either attaching it beneath or wrapping it up in your clothes, and ended up with grease or soot smeared all over everything. Either way, stoves can be cumbersome. Let’s not forget the large canisters of propane you have to carry too that take up precious space on long camping trips.

Instead, how about a self-contained personal cooking unit that promises no bag ripping and is as compact as possible? Welcome Jetboil.

Jetboil makes a number of different models, many of which are available at Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters, but the idea is the same for all of them. It’s a cooking system that has a cup that holds all the metal attachments and your canister of butane inside of it when you’re not using it. It’s covered with a neoprene sleeve and protective plastic measuring cup. This means no rips and as small a footprint possible.

Jetboil systems come in a variety of sizes, from as small as .8 liters to as large as 5 liters, so there’s a system that fits any individual’s or group’s needs. And the best part is that they’re quick to boil water–most in under 3 minutes for one liter, meaning you can have hot coffee within five minutes of waking up, perfect for those really chilly mornings.

Most of the models’ cooking cups are large enough to cook in and small enough to actually use as a cup–perfect for long cold hikes when you want something warm to sip on. And don’t let the cooking cup be your only source of inspiration for cooking! There are also lots of accessories paired perfectly with the Jetboil system, like frying pans and coffee presses, so there’s almost no limit to what you can make with the system.

If you’re in the market for a new personal cooking system or are purchasing one for the first time, the Jetboil might be the way to go! Come in and check out our models to see if a Jetboil is right for you.
