Given the increase in weight (probably undetectable as pack weight, but nonetheless higher), what benefits do you foresee with the Jetboil pot support?

I hope that comes off as a genuine question b/c I'm curious, rather than a snarky comment!

Very neat, I like this idea, as I have the Sol Ti and had never thought of doing this and was carrying a Tri Wing stove as a back up.

Thanks for sharing.

We also have jetboil sol TI and flash. I was just looking to buy an esbit backup stove system, but now ill def be trying this little trick this weekend! Thanks.

I picked up one of those rings for free at a gear swap in my area. I don't have a JetBoil, but when I saw it, I instantly thought 'Put a plate into the bottom of that, and it'd be an awesome Esbit stove!' Super surprised that I saw this the very next day!

One thing to consider--that setup positions the bottom of the JB pot 2" from the top of the Esbit tabe. The optimal tab-to-pot distance is between 1.25"-1.75". So, for better efficiency, you might want to elevate your tab .5" off the ground. You could use a Gram Cracker, for example, or make a tablet holder from the bottom of a Red Bull or mini Pepsi can. Either way will work, and it likely will make the Esbit tab more efficient by getting it off the cold ground.

Edit: Nope, the Pepsi can won't fit inside the center of the JB pot stand (I just checked). Maybe you could fashion a sort of Gram Cracker clone out of heavy duty aluminum foil to elevate the tab inside the center. Anyway, you'll need a windscreen for things to work well, unless it's a perfectly calm day.

Very cool idea, since I use the jet boil flash.
