I just purchased one of these units, I read the reviews, and I really like the way they have designed the Jetboil Flash.  For me, it’s always about weight and efficiency, and the Jetboil stoves come in pretty high in both areas.

I like the neoprene shell, it makes it very packable, non-abrasive, and easy to handle even when the unit is hot.  The temp indicator is also a very nice feature, since I am always muti-tasking in camp.

Since I usually take Mountain House meals with me for my evening meal, the Jetboil is really all I need.  I just heat the water, and pour it in the Mountain House bag, stir, and eat.

If you are looking for a good, durable cook stove for backpacking, the Jetboil package is a nice option.  Pair it up with a titanium spork, and you have yourself a means to a quick backpacking meal.

I am really looking forward to testing this unit this Summer, when my 16 year old daughter and I head out into the wilderness in here in Northern California for bowhunting and scouting trips.   I hope you get some good basic information from this video about the Jetboil Flash Personal Cooking System.
