Every ounce counts when you're headed for an extended stay in the wilderness with everything you need on your back, and the arrival of lightweight cooking systems has meant hikers can still reward themselves with a hot meal on the trailside. For two decades, US company Jetboil has specialized in these portable stoves for adventurous souls and has now launched what it calls the lightest backpacking stove ever made, the 7.1-oz (200-g) Jetboil Stash.

Jetboil's portable cooking systems are designed to give backpackers and trekkers a quick and easy way to boil water, consisting of tiny burners that screw into fuel canisters, and then lidded pots that sit on top to bubble away.

The Jetboil Flash is cut from the same cloth but undercuts the company's next lightest stove, the Jetboil Flash, by 40 percent. This is despite carrying a cook pot of the same 800 ml (27 oz) capacity, which works with a titanium burner to offer a claimed 2.5 minute boil time.

Designed to be not just lightweight but compact too, the Jetboil Stash can store the burner, canister and its folding stand inside its pot with the lid fitted neatly on top. When packed up in this way, it measures just 4.4 in x 5.1 in (112 mm x 130 mm), a perfectly manageable addition to the pack for hungry hikers, or those that enjoy a coffee before setting off for the day.

And you still can't use it with solid fuel, an alcohol stove, or on a twig stove or campfire. Jetboil needs to find a way to make the flux ring the product. The integrated unit works great if you use it the one way it's designed. I, like many, want gear that is versatile and solves more than one problem. When Jetboil figures that out I'll start giving it serious consideration.

Prometheus Why ever would you want a unit designed to screw into a gas canister to work with solid fuel or alcohol. We use a billy with a spout for heating water over a fire in AUS no problems.
