    Jet boil vs msr

    Miss and 1 are heading bush for a few days normally we base ourselves close to doc huts sort of day walks but this summer we going to do a bit more adventurous missions. Lioking at cooking options.
    Jet boil vs msr, also what size of capabilities there is just us two we normally cook up a double back country meal each.
    Pro vs cons?

    My friends and I have jet boils, all have had the piezo ignitions fail so don’t count it as a pro vs an msr without it. I would probably go msr windburner or similar. You may not think you’ll do much cooking in the wind, but the reality is you will. I dehydrate my own meals and use an msr flex skillet pan which is great for cooking up proper meals. Backcountry get old quick...

    I have the Jet boil. Not yet had an issue with the Piezo.
    From the research I have done the newer MSR Windburner works better in a wind but is not as efficient or as fast as the Jet boil in sheltered conditions.

    I have one of these primus buggers.
    I reckon it's as good a msr and you can use it like a normal cooker too. 3 lugs in the handle make a trivet for a fry pan or whatever.
    Lite af you can 700ml in them too. 500ml on data sheet but 700ml easy.

    I brought mine from torpedo 7 for $120 delivered. Mint

    I have a windburner and I find it great, you provide the ignition but no biggie. Does what it's meant to and pretty quickly, ideal for those type of meals.

    I don't know the back story but I have noticed that NZ Hunting Adventures have switched from Jetboil to MSR.

    Probably as good a recommendation as any
