I don't care what type of camping anybody does....boiling water in 3 minutes?! (which means instant coffee in less than 3) That's damn near microwave quick. Gonna have to get one. I have a tent camper, and use an old fashioned coffee urn to have hot water throughout the day. This is quicker, and takes up less room. Thanks for the find! ::008::

No problem Sierra1. It took six days from California to my house in Los Alamos New Mexico.
Just ran a test: Filled it with ice topped with water 1L waited 3 minutes temp was 32 degrees. 1/4th canister of fuel 205g of fuel garage air temp 70 degrees. Less than 10.5 minutes later water boiling 201 degrees, 188g of fuel left. I live at 7000+ feet above sea level take that into consideration. Not bad 1L from freezing to boil in a little over 10 minutes.. ::008::

Got one.

Thanks for the heads up. I've had a rocket stove for years but always wanted to try a jetboil so this knockoff might be the thing.

The Jetboil pot support alone cost more than the shipping on this knock off.
Lets see how it handles in the long haul, it looks as solid as a Jetboil. ::008::

thanks.. just ordered one. My son has a real Jet Boil, so I'll have to compare them side by side.

Did you get one and is it made the same way? I saw those at REI I would destroy it within one afternoon.. To small for me.

Yup, max weight is only 275lbs. That's 50lb under my weight. :)) Could get ugly.

Keep an eye of for them over charging you on this. They showed my total as $33.48 and even had a note in my order that I was over charged. I looked at my CC statement and sure enough, I was charged $38.48. I have to have a chat session with them to refund my $5.00

I got one of the knock-off REI/Helinox chairs a while back... it's held up. I'm not as big a guy as I was when I bought it, but still held up 50lbs ago.. now at 210, it's much better, but the legs will sink in the ground when the ground is soft. I got mine from my favorite shopping site that sounds like a porn site, banggood.com, for $34 but it looks like they don't carry them anymore.

Thanks for mentioning the price SNAFU I will have a look at my Paypal to see if I was hit the same way.
