    Just thought you may be interested in this. The Jetboil rrp is 65 in the uk, if you go to cotswold and get 20% off you still have to pay 5 for P&P

    but if you buy it off ebay from the states even with the international postage the total price is 42.00

    not bad I thought

    Thats how I got mine last July. I've been ordering the accessories that way as well for it.

    I've been saying since they started selling them over here, they are over charging for it big time.

    How stable is it in use?
    It looks very wobbly, but good.

    you can get a stabiliser/convertor pack to make it more stable and use other pans on it.

    well the jet boil arrived today so it took 5 days to get here from the states!

    Just tried it out in the garage and I'm very impressed, it boiled enough water for a mug of tea in 45 seconds !

    I use my trusty old trangia mainly but next trip I will be using this beauty

    Guy,

    if you don't mind me asking, which seller did you use on eBay?

    And if you *do* mind, errrr, don't tell me! :-)

    Cheers,

    Michael S

    I used gotyourgear for Tikkaplus £20 including postage instead of £29. Not earthshattering but still a good saving. They seem pretty reliable, cheap postage too.
