In 2001, Dwight Aspinwall and Perry Dowst wanted to create a fast, compact, and efficient backpacking stove. Their prototype personal cooking system became the Jetboil, which they launched to consumers in 2004.
Jetboil cooking systems feature an insulated cooking pot and integrated metal heat exchanger as a burner, for fast boil times and simple operation. Models now come in a range of sizes for individual to group trips and are either unregulated (for fast, efficient, three-season use) and regulated (for precision and four-season use).
Today Jetboil is owned by Johnson Outdoors.
