After graduating high school a group of friends and I went on a so called road trip from the South and ended in the West. We quickly found that a group of 18 year olds couldn't afford to gas a vehicle and eat lavish overnight. Therefore we all chipped in on a stove and started making meals in the car. This stove might be small but it sure is mighty. It can cook an entire meal for up to 5 people with no trouble. The meal will taste like it was made in your moms kitchen too.
I love our Jetboil! We take it on every backpacking trip and it's always a lifesaver. It boils everything so fast and when you are cold it's nice to know you don't have to wait more than a minute for hot water.
I bought a Jetboil last year to take backpacking and it has quickly become an essential for all my trips! I love that the cooking system boils water in under two minutes and has a color-changing boil indicator to let you know when your water is ready. Also perfect for ski trips and day hikes when you need a little something extra to help stay warm!
My 10 year old is promoting to Boy Scouts next weekend. This would be a great essential for their overnights!
