User Review: Jetboil Personal Cooking System (PCS)
Price Paid: don't remember
I have had the Jetboil PCS for several years now, and I have found it to be the best stove for my needs. I have used it here in northwest Montana for everything from multiple overnight hikes to ice fishing in -30 degree weather, and it has always performed flawlessly.
In my experience fuel consumption is surprisingly low and boil times are fast. I mostly use it just to boil water for coffee and meals when hunting/hiking.
I can recommend it above all others if you are not weighing your pack to shave every last ounce. Personally I would ditch something else to make room for my Jetboil, and I have to say that I would buy another one if this one is ever lost, stolen, or taken over by my son.
Update: December 17, 2011
Another hunting season down and ice fishing is just gearing up. Really it is worth its weight in gold, people. I cannot say that it is the best, but I can say that if you buy it, you will not buy another unit of any kind. You cannot go wrong with Jetboil.
