Jetboil Zip Hacks
@Kevin - According to Will and Janet's testing, it didn't make a huge impact at all. Can't remember the exact numbers, but it was something like 1 or 2 pints out of 45 or more per canis...

Jetboil Zip Hacks
Did the first "permanent" mod to the Zip. Very simple addition of a wire adjustment knob. Even without the 1/2 ounce savings of using the Gnat, this one is worth it just for convenience. ...

Jetboil Zip Hacks
So I picked up a Jetboil Zip the other day. I've avoided the integrated setups since they showed up because the weights just didn't make sense. With the recent versions, they're much mo...

Re: Re: Unscrewing the Gnat

SuperGnat
Hard to tell if this thread is joking or serious, but for anyone curious about the Gnat - which I use as my primary stove - unscrewing requires nothing different than screwing the stove on the cani...

$16 remote canister stove
It's a regular (Lindal?) connection. I used an MSR canister, a Jetboil canister, and a Snowpeak canister. Took all three just fine. Nice snug rubber washer fit, too. I like that better than the...

$16 remote canister stove
The stove finally arrived. Took well over a month to get here. Quick impressions are actually surprisingly good. To be honest, it looks and feels as solid and well put together as any Coleman, MSR,...

2012 UL Big Boy Gear List
Nice list, Jay. Two quick questions for you: 1. How long are the shoulder straps on that pack? One of my greatest problems with most of the UL packs is that the shoulder straps are too short and...

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
If Esbit is the fuel choice, this little stand is a fantastic option. Fits the GSI double boilers well and my Snowpeak bowl nicely. The real appeal is the ridiculously light weight. I can tos...
