I took my stove backpacking in the smokys in December.It worked great! My buddies were sill waiting on their water to boil while I was eating. Packs up easily. Utensil holder worked great. I didn't have to look through my bag to find my fork! Great stove! I have already talked my friends into buying one.

After a lot of research I bought the jb and have had no regrets! Best stove on market for boiling water. I only use to boil water for Hawk Vittle meals and coffee. Very fast!

Food in a flash
I bought the Flash stove just before heading out on a 4-day backpacking trip in the Enchantments. It worked well at our campsite above 5,000 feet. I like the way all the pieces, including the fuel canister, fit inside the cooking pot. The viewing window that shows when the water's almost boiling is a nice improvement over the older model that I've borrowed from my daughter. The sleeve around the cooking pot is very useful when pouring out boiling water. I didn't use the spoon holder on the sleeve but it might come in handy. I've used (and been frustrated by) all sorts of camp stoves over the past 40 years and am happy to report the Flash is the best of the lot!

It's a JetBoil - Enough said!
You really can't go wrong at all with this setup. Boil water extremely fast and super easy to use. Most of the backpacking I do requires hot water for almost everything and being able to quickly have some in hand is essential. I use the cup for everything, including cooking in it. I've seen a few on the trail without the temperature gauge on the kuzi and nearly every owner has expressed interest in wishing theirs had the same. The fuel is a little more expensive than other brands but because the system in so efficient I will continue to buy Jet Boil fuel just to keep it all matched up. The utensil holder on the outside never seems to get used but that is hardly something to complain about.

Well Thought Out Stove
I never bought a Jet Boil because I thought they were unnecessarily heavy and took up unnecessary volume. Why get a Jet Boil when I have my tiny Pocket Rocket that takes up minimal space? As it turns out, the JB is worth its wait and volume. It's quick, well put together, the built in ignition is wonderful, and the "pot" keeps liquid warm for quite a while. So next trip, load up on the tea, coffee, or soup, take your Jet Boil, and have a warm meal or beverage in minutes.
