The Jetboil has proven itself time and time again as a reliable, easy to use all-in-one personal cooking system that is adept at brewing up in a portaledge midway up a 3,000ft rock face or in the porch of an expedition tent in some of the world’s most remote places. That versatility and simplicity makes it the ideal camp stove for both aspiring and accomplished adventurers embarking on all sorts of trips and expeditions, from big wall climbs to weekend wild camps. But its contemporary popularity means it is easy to forget just what an original and innovative idea the notion of all all-in-one personal cooking system actually was when Jetboil was first unveiled to the world, back in 2001.
Fast, compact and efficient, it’s no exaggeration to say that the first Jetboil revolutionised outdoor cooking. Since then it has spawned a series of imitators, from rival big brands to cheap copies. But only the original Jetboil boasts the dependable power and precision control you need to go gourmet from basecamp to summit, and everywhere in between.
