How to Use a JetBoil

JetBoil Personal Cooking System
Using my JetBoil Personal Cooking System on a backpacking trip!
Cooking is a pleasure for some and a chore for others. When I’m backpacking and camping, my goal is to make it as fun and easy as possible. That’s why I bought a JetBoil Personal Cooking System (PCS). Note, the JetBoil Flash is the newer version of the JetBoil PCS.

It is relatively lightweight, very compact, and easy to set up. What more could I ask for?

In the following series of 3 videos, I demonstrate how to use a JetBoil Personal Cooking System. Also be sure to check out the Hiking Lady Gear Review: JetBoil Personal Cooking System to learn more about the features of this backcountry stove!

    At 63 years old just bought my first jet boil for camping at the beach. Thanks for great videos.

    I have taken my JetBoil on many trips because I MUST have my coffee in the morning. I absolutely love it. It’s easy to use, lightweight, and heats water really fast.

    This is an awesome website. I bought a jetboil about a year ago and have not used it yet so I needed a refresher. Thanks so much!
