I'm looking at a new stove. I am trying to decide between the Jetboil Flash and the Primus ETA Solo. Is one much better than the other or should I just get the one that is the best deal. Is there another similar set up I should look into.
The new Jetboil stoves have a regulator this year so they should do much better in extreme cold.I have used the pocket rocket and jet boil for a few years in alaska. I actually carry a PR as a backup when going on extended hunts. Usually always dehydrated food so the JB is awesome for this.
It does act up when the temp drops though. Next year I will carry a Soto micro regulator and my jet boil cup. On the advice from a friend I will use a dremel and make slots to fit the cup and stove together during use. Should get much better boil in the colder weather.
