Jetboil Test and Review, Maxpedition 12 X 4 Review for Backpacking.


A review and test of the Jetboil, not really a Wilderness Survival Tool, but a great item for those of you who are going to practice your skills out in the field. Great for trail hiking or climbing areas that do not permit building camp fires. Carried in our 12 X 4, by Maxpedition, a great item capable of carrying a large nalgene bottle or even becoming a great survival or cooking kit in its self.

  2. Is that camo on the cup? Where did you find that?

  3. does maxpedition still sell the 12×5…ive got the 10×4 and you really have to wedge that jetboil in there.

    Thanks Peter, I will look into that because the set-up is a little top heavy. I have spilled it before. Thanks,

    It took awhile because you cannot boil air, and all the heat was at the bottom of the container, not on the sides or at the top. So after the ice finally got melted, then the boiling didnt take long.

  10. Great Vid, nice to see the Jetboil in action. I saw another video on it by RoscoeBa and she shows a plastic tripod stand that you can get that attaches to the bottom of the isopropane canister for added stability. Thanks for the test and info.

  11. Great review!

  12. It’s a great tool, great for backpacking.

    Nice Review. I am deciding on a pack stove and the jet-boil is one of the stove I was looking at. Thanks.

  17. Nice all in one stove. I have the msr pocket rocket but its pretty much a three piece stove. (stove, fuel, a cup)
