    Jetboil Mini Mo ??...

    keen to hear your views on jetboils for lightweight hunting / walk ins etc

    i've been running a tiny little msr stove + folding kettle + folding mug. the kettle is brilliant, the mug a bit odd to drink out of and i lost a brew once by collapsing it. the mug folds neatly into the kettle so the whole set up is pretty small

    after hearing from a mate how good he reckons the jetboils are i ordered a jetboil mini mo and it has just turned up, but on opening it i just didn't realise how much bigger and heavier it is than my current set up. i haven't actually weighed each set up so it may not be as different as it appears

    is the jetboil good enough to justify the extra bulk or do i move it on?? i think i need some more convincing to even give it a whirl

    Jet boils are darned heavy. I went a mini titanium stove and a cup. Including gas 213g all up and it's fits in the cup. Less than 1/2 the weight

    I've got a flash, not the lightest but I'm pretty impressed by how long the canister lasts.

    Just jump on aliexpress bro.. They've got a sale on ATM, 57% off some titanium cookware... Just ordered a new mug this morning.. $34 delivered.. Been wanting a flash as whiskey drinking cup for ages!! 400 ml should sort me out! If you measure the base of a gas canister you should find one you can put all your cooking gear inside..

    Jetboils were first on the scene but MSR has gone one up with their Windburner, it does not have piezo ignition but is more wind proof and as well as the billy you can get a frypan, and the usual coffee press attatchments etc.
    For pure weight the pocket rocket or various copies are the bees knees, but you burn more fuel.
    Either system is no good in the high tops though, being gas canisters, for mountain performance you need liquid fuel, not gas.
    If I was buying again then I would look at where I was using it, then decide, and it would be either a MSR multifuel or a MSR windburner.

    Ive got one of these (Fire Maple) which is similar to the Jet Boil. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Fire...2.4.165.Ix07eP

    Boils water fast, economic on gas, adjustable flame and has an igniter, and can be used as an ordinary stove. Quite noisy when on full blast with the turbo pot thing attached.

    I have an MSR white spirits jobby for altitude.

    I also have a tiny Titanium gas head which is great too. I wouldn't take the Fire Maple on a tramp or long walk in hunt, but its ideal for fly/drive/ride in hunts.

    But if you want light and mobile - a little ti gas head, ti cup and billy can't be beaten. Get it all from Aliexpress.

    I have the mini mo its legit, Yes there are smaller liter ways to boil your water but not as reliable or as good on open ground. Its got really got simmer function and you can get a pot attachment to run the frying pan on top

    interesting re the simmer function, is that just turning down the gas flow down? @199p

    I've had a jet boil for a couple of years.
    Like it. Think I have the 800mm and a 1.5 ltr for it.
    The small one heats fast and is good on gas.
    Like having built in igniter. And good control over heat output.

    While I still like my whitesprits little 8R if you buy the right gas tins my jet boil works quite happily at sub zero temps.
    Well the fly had ice on the inside.
