If you haven't seen it, MSR put out a pretty funny video "comparing" the Jetboil to a Reactor. :)

Ha thats pretty funny. buncha dumb numbers in unrealistic scenarios. (boiling over the JB, no external wind protection.) but its funny presentation. The type of marketing that Backpacker loves.

Hey MSR I notice you rep Oregon beers.... well when I think of WA beers I guess I can't blame you. ;)



They failed to mention that you can almost carry two SolTi stoves for the weight of the Reactor. Then lemme see your boil times LOL



FWIW I use a Windpro (MSR) and not a JB.

That video was fun.

Bill Gates was a good sport to participate in it.

Haha... I saw the title 'get real' and thought y'all were still arguing about canister failures! Good video, Jim.
