Pros: Heats water fast in an all in one unit.

Cons: A bit eavy and way too bulky for long term use while bikepacking.

Recommendation: While I love the Jetboil for hiking trips, it's not so good for bikepacking trips. It just doesnt pack down small enough and the extra fuel that you are required to carry takes up even more space. For weight and size junkies on a bikepacking trip, I'd recommend a penny can stove and some sort of HEET or alcohol. They are way, smaller, lighter, and cheaper.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: self-contained, easy to assemble, easy to use, boils water quickly, has insulated sleeve

Cons: bulky, heavy

Recommendation: I bought this for bikepacking and hiking/camping. It's a great self-contained system. If you are concerned about weight, this is probably not what you are looking for. Otherwise, it is a great product.
