Average Jetboil Review (based on 125 reviews)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by RiK from Wisconsin on Wednesday, May 25, 2016I've been using a Svea stove for about 40 years now and was looking for something a bit less messy to use when car camping. This stove fit the bill and I picked one up here using a 30% off/free shipping coupon. The first one I got was damaged in shipping so STP quickly sent me a second stove. Bought some of the Isobutane canisters and was able to get the thing set up in about 2 minutes using the somewhat sketchy instructions. Had a bit of trouble getting it to ignite at first as I didn't realize that the gas valve needed to be fully opened to light. Once I had that figured out it lit quite easily, and I was astounded at how quickly it boiled a 1/2 liter of water, probably about 2 minutes. This thing is truly amazing at doing what it's designed to do, namely boil water very quickly.
Took it car camping that same week and found that it works very well in the wild. It's pretty compact (despite the name), very light, and easy to set up/take down. It'd be useful not only for camping, but also for backpacking if you have 2+ people and are willing to share the stove.
Overall a great purchase that I'm sure will last for years.
Reviewed by David GC from Phoenix on Thursday, April 7, 2016Using 30% coupon, you can get this baby 70bucks. This is "steal". It is very light, yeh little bit bulky, but you can store something in this Sumo. Flame is adjustable, like minimo, so you can cook something although pot itself is little deep for general cooking. I tried to make ramen with this Sumo, it was perfect. No problem.
You can boil water quickly, you can cook simple food without scorching. This uses very minimum gas and also you can carry 230g gas. This is great advantage over other Jetboil. Other Jetboil case, you may need to carry additional gas which is heavy. I definitely encourage you to buy this ASAP.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Fathomthat from Central IL on Monday, March 7, 2016Great for a soloist. Small capacity. Purchased to replace the Primus I was using.
Nice design and compact.
