    Quick update to this thread:
    I went out in April (2021) for a quick overnighter and used my WM Everlite. The overnight low was about 40 F, and I was cold, cold enough that I really couldn't sleep. ...

    Oh, good, that's what I thought. For a minute there I was wondering if Jetboil had a model out that I hadn't heard of.

    I don't know if anyone saw it, but I have a comparison chart on my blog...

    There can be issues. You should be all right if you just stick to 100% water. No noodles, soups, chowders, stews, etc. No melting snow.

    Connie is correct based on what I've seen. Here's a photo comparing (left to right) an MSR Windboiler pot (1.0 L), a Jetboil Sol pot (0.8 L), and a Jetboil MiniMo pot (1.0L)....

    Yep. It will do that. The regulator valve has been called the "cruise control" of stoves. As the canister cools, it loses pressure. The regulator can open up and allow more pressure through,...

    Well, yes, but you could also leave those components behind on the Zip. On my scale, the difference was about 2.2 ounces in an apples-to-apples comparison. But whatever. The marketplace appears...
  8. Connie, the Jetboil Zip...

    Connie, the Jetboil Zip is 0.8L. Do you mean the Jetboil Sumo? The Sumo is 1.8 L. There is also a GCS Pot that is 1.5 L, maybe that's what you have?

    Hmm. Well, color me sceptical on that one....

    Hmm. Well of course what we now consider to be the "standard threaded canister format" was developed by Epigas in Great Britain before Camping Gaz came out with their format. Camping Gaz developed...

    Most modern canister gas backpacking stoves available in the US use a Lindal valve style canister with a 7/16 UNEF threaded connector. However, some Camping Gaz stoves are still available. They use...

    If it's a Sol that you're wanting, then yeah you'd best be about the business of buying it now. Jetboil has removed the Sol pages from their site which essentially makes it official.

    I don't believe the Sol line is being discontinued due to customer complaints. If that were true, then they'd only discontinue the Ti version but keep the aluminum version.

    Well, it depends on whether you run it on max 50%, or about 33%. I'll give you a number for each of those for a 100g canister, which is approximate: 19, 21, 22. Something like that. Maybe one...

    No, quite the opposite. The Windboiler is more efficient. In windy conditions, not only is the Windboiler more efficient, it's also faster.

    They're still selling CV270 and CV470 at a sporting good store near me (Big 5), but I see it less and less in my area. REI has stopped.

    If I may ask, what's the advantage of the corrugated over plain? I have several different plain ones, and they seem to fold and/or roll well.
