Yes they are. I don't know what else would do all it does at high altitudes. Very versatile.

Bought a Ti for last sheep hunt and was amazed at how little fuel we burned......very fast!

Yes, they are worth it. Light weight, boil water fast, pack up nice and small. Just converted last year and I am amazed. Only draw back is the price tag, I payed something like $120 for my Ti single man.

I really like mine, except for the handle. A thread over on backpackinglight describes a catastrophic inferno type failure in a Ti model

David put up the link... all I can add is I haven't been enthusiastic about much if any gear for many years... the Jetboil is one of only a couple of things that have gotten me excited. So simple and effective.

A remarkable little gem. Not perfect, but head and shoulders above the competition for 3 season boiling... if I want real cooking or winter use, I pull out a WG stove.

This past season was the first time I used my JB stove and I was really pleased with its performance. Quick and easy to setup, very simple to use and packs fairly small. I pack mine in an Expedition pouch which holds the stove, two small fuel canisters, a collapsible bowl and a spork. It is definitely worth the price IMHO.

Interesting. I don't suppose you'd have a link to that thread would you?

They are great. Durable too. I used one nearly every day (multiple times some days) for a year. Same stove is going back for a six month trip.
