Crap,.......I just blew coffee all over myself. I know its risky taking advice from a "Novice" but do you think the wind pro will dry my shirt out before hypothermia sets in or am I screwed ???????
Thanks in advance........

Bashing aside on TAK, the WindPro is a performer. Of course I am a big fan of the micro rocket as well. Carry on.

Another +1 for the Jetboil Sol.

Awesome kit.

Note: Not recommended for use in a hammock...

The fact that both of you are using the term "kit" to describe the stoves is grounds for bashing! Now I kinda dug this Kit!

How does the Jet Boil do in cold weather? Like 20 degrees or lower?

Below 20F, you'd be pushing the limit of the Jetboil. Warming the canisters does help though.

I suppose I've had 20 or so stoves since I got my first Hank Roberts in 1974. There were surprisingly decent stoves available back then.

More recently, having done the Ti-Pot/Giga/Pocket Rocket thing (neither of which impressed me much), I settled on a Jetboil Ti 2.5 years ago. Uses about half the fuel of the Giga, while being essentially as light (and lighter on longer trips because of its fuel-miserlyness).

The Jetboil Ti is one of the most impressive pieces of gear (or "kit" if you're from British Empire, which I ain't) I've seen in years. Truly revolutionary.

The older Jetboil (got my first of those in 2006) worked "ok" down to 15-20F and the newer jetboil works better down to around 5-10F.

Below that a good White Gas stove makes the most sense. Hard to beat an MSR International or old Svea 123 there...

Fun thread.

My backpack is a Dodge Durango. My hikes are only long enough that the Durango is still in sight. Nobody has shot at me in 40 years. The only times I leave the US I'm on a cruise ship. And my tent is a La Quinta.

But when I go fishing, I take along my Swedish military cook kit with its Trangia/SVEA stove, an MRE or two, and a nice big stainless steel cup for hot drinks.

I ain't givin' any advice.

If it wasn't for your low scores in modesty, you might have reached 3+ on your aggregate.

Question about the Jetboil.

Does it JUST boil water? 90% of what I do is boil water but sometimes I actually simmer something in a pot of water and even use an MSR fry pan to make pancakes, etc.

I'm thinking the Jetboil would not work for that, and will only boil water albeit very efficiently, correct?

I'm mostly content with my PocketRocket and in fact, selling my Whisperlite as I never use it.

I have 2 Svea stoves that I used for many years. However, since I got llamas I've switched to these single burner Coleman stoves. No, they're not for the minimalist to say the least. However, the propane works at any temp and any elevation. They're MUCH easier to light than a Svea and they really crank out the heat, enough that they make a pretty good tent heater, too. The only drawback is that they're too top heavy. I should have got one that sits flat with the bottle next to it.

There is a fry pan and larger sauce type pan you can get. Can't say I wanna schelp it on a back pack trip though. I've cooked rice, eggs, bacon in the larger pan. You have to tend to the heat and it does OK. If you really want to be able to simmer, the gig is a SnoPeak 1400 with Dragonfly stove. If you monkey with the stove just right, it will fit fine in the 1400 set.

You can make a venison stew or boil up some oatmeal in a Jetboil. But then you'd have to clean it.

Yep! If using the regular Jetboil pot, you have to constantly stir it or it will burn in a hurry! Mine still carries the results of trying to cook some Dinty Moore in mine on it's maiden voyage... Since then I just relegate mine to boiling water. I'd like to get/try one of the larger pans sometime though.

And why did you have psychometric evaluation in the first place ? That might answer a lot of questions on what you post.

You can remove the Jetboil pot and use it like a regular burner/stove. It works well in that configuration too.
