    Hi All.

    After consideration I decided against the jetboil and opted for a highgear stove set £15 go outdoors, Already had the burner.. apart from the ring that distributes heat this works a treat, and is a saving of about £40/£50....

    I have nothing against jetboil and or owners but this is a cheap alternative. and on the plus the stove holds a LARGE gas unlike the jetboil and packs down smaller..

    Thoughts

    Pics to Follow.....

    What's to discuss ? You bought a stove that's not a Jetboil. Congratulations on making a decision. What do you want , a pat on the back ?

    Rather acerbic comment there Rod -- but it did make me smile a bit.

    Jetboil have done an excellent job on the marketing/styling side of things which draws people in with the "ooh, shiny" factor, which has somewhat masked the reality that it's a solution looking for a problem for the majority of people who do short 1 or 2 night trips.I guess what I'm saying is the Jetboil concept has its place, but marketing is persuading people who don't need it to buy into it. That's the point of marketing though, so kudos to them I suppose?

    Matt,
    >marketing is persuading people who don't need it to buy into it

    Exactly stopped reading after "Cooking" and "Jetboil" where mentioned in the same post.

    Rod, I was trying to tell people (which is obvious) that simple and more in-expensive stoves are out there that are smaller and more light-weight than the jetboil. (please see previous post Rod)

    Thanks for congratulating me, however I do not need any congratulations (very strange of you to offer) and thus no pat on the back needed.
