Anyone use a jetboil stove or similar ......what do you think ? ...reviews ..worth the money...... better than conventional stove ?
I did think about it but then I realised how expensive the little tins of gas work out and decidedAnyone use a jetboil stove or similar ......what do you think ? ...reviews ..worth the money...... better than conventional stove ?
I was wondering how they perform in really cold weather as they dont seem to have a preheater pipe ?? also a quick look round and there are tons of lookalike at half the price !I think one of the appeals is not having to carry a kettle.......always like a hot drink fishing in the winter
I'm curious about boil in the bag meals? Which ones are the best?They’re pretty good in cold weather, no worse than my other stoves. The Jetboils are pretty narrow compared to the Alpkit, the Alpkit is bigger, wider & heavier. I’ve actually got the Jetboil zip which is the smaller version & the Alpkit version. If I’m just using it for a day trip just for boiling water, I’ll take the Jetboil. If I want to use it to cook boil in the bag meals, I’ll use the Alpkit. The Alpkit version also comes with a pan support which you can use if you want to use a frying pan on the stove although they’re not great for simmering, as adjustment is not as precise as a normal stove. The Alpkit is actually made by Firemaple
I make my own, normally a pasta bolognese or a curry & rice but you can make whatever you like. I then put then in a foil pouch, they’re pretty cheap on EBay & freeze them. Just take out what you need, I tend to only use them for day sessions & put them in boiling water for between 8-10 minsI'm curious about boil in the bag meals? Which ones are the best?
