    • Jetboil Zip includes a 0.8-liter aluminum FluxRing® cooking cup with insulating cozy to keep your drinks and meals warm
    • Same as the original Jetboil, the stove burner and cooking cup twist together to create a single convenient cooking system; disconnect the burner and cooking cup for storage
    • FluxRing® heat exchanger on the bottom of the cooking cup creates excellent fuel efficiency; the Zip boils 0.5 liter of water in 2 min. 31 sec.
    • Adjustable-flame burner is housed in a windscreen, reducing heat loss when a breeze picks up
    • Drink-through lid features a pour spout and a built-in strainer
    • Stove burner and 100g fuel canister (sold separately) stow inside the cup; lid snaps shut for storage
    • Bottom cover unsnaps from the cooking cup to double as a measuring cup or bowl; measuring cup comes in handy when preparing meals and hot drinks
    • Includes a stabilizer tripod that clips onto fuel canister (sold separately)
    • Sewn-on tunnel pocket on the cozy holds your utensils or Jetboil hanging kit (sold separately)
    • Jetboil Zip stove is compatible with all Jetboil accessories (sold separately)
    • Due to flammable item shipping restrictions, we cannot sell fuel canisters online; they are available at REI retail stores
    • Because this stove system has a capacity of less than 1 liter, the average boil time specification represents the time required to do 2 separate boils of 0.5 liter of water

    Please note: We cannot ship fuel-burning products to addresses in Japan or South Korea.

    Please note: Jetboil products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

    Jetboil Zip Stove is rated 4.1579 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works within its limitations well. I purchased this from REI a couple of years ago for hiking, backpacking, and general camping and it has honestly been one of my go to stoves when I go camping. For hiking it has been great since I use it in conjunction with the mini bamboo steamers that dimsum are served in. I'll stack maybe 4-5 steamers together with various dimsum for a midtrail lunch. You have no idea how good some hot steamed Xiao Long Bao, Hargow, Pork buns, and Egg Custard buns are when you're starving at 5pm, it's 39F, the sun has long set behind the trees and you just want some noms. Epic noms. The stove lacks a few refined features that would make this work like a champ. An accurate needle valve for starters is a chief complaint. Furthermore, a fuel pressure regulator, piezo electric ignition, brass gas generator loop, wind protection, a remote stand so you could do liquid injection. But you know what? That's alright. For the cost that you get this stove at, it's bare bones and for good reason, you don't need most of it. To be honest, I don't really see much difference between this model and the Sol Titanium besides a 28% reduction in weight. Piezo electric starters will probably fail when you need them, so I use a flint and steel which you can get at REI. There are ISOPROPANE cans that you can use which are good at colder temps or you can pop the fuel can in your shirt before cooking. I use a Brunton Remote Stand Adapter from REI to give my Jetboil absolutely precise simmer control, it's actually so good that I can sous vide with this stove. This stove is a minimalist's favorite since it saves in weight and cost, but it has all the capability you need it for over a week long trip. For me, it's a glamper's dream because I can use it to cook eggs, hashbrowns, steam up dim sum, rehydrate food. Really almost any type of gourmet cooking, I can pretty much do it. One morning in Joshua Tree we ended up leaving later than we thought and didn't make it to breakfast before getting hungry. All we had left were bell peppers, onions, carrots, salt, pepper, a couple of eggs, and two giant russet potatoes. Boy did that make up a bunch of delicious omelettes. A little dash of cooking oil and nothing stuck to the bottom. There are caveats, sure, but remember GI JOE "Knowing is half the battle!" Your own innate ingenuity would be the other half.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Easy I bought the Jetboil Zip as a light, cheap, easy to use stove. It succeeds well in each of those areas. My only complaint is the valve that controls the flow of fuel is not stable, and if you don't have the flow at full blast, moving the valve could shut off the flow of gas for just a moment causing the flame to go out. Since it does not have an igniter built in, this can be a hassle. If you want temperature control, this is a problem. If your only concern is the fuel being 'on' or 'off', this isn't a problem. But in the end I decided to stick with the Zip and not return it because it's still a very well built, stable, light, and comfortable cooking companion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Effective Everything packed up so neatly making it really easy to transport. It boiled water really quickly. Some of the reviews say that's it's difficult to light but that was not my experience--it lights pretty standard. We used it on a backpacking trip to make oatmeal/coffee/etc. The only downside is that the pot doesn't hold a ton of water at one time, so if you are using it for more than one person you have to do a couple of rounds. This is pretty typical for backpacking gear though. Also nice that the stove is detachable so hypothetically you could use it with other gear if you wanted to. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from best light weight cooking system 4 the $ i like the zip because you can use your light my fire steel to light the stove. this way you won't have to worry about a faulty igniter after years of use. you can also use a bic, match, cigarette etc to ignite the stove. it gets the job done, the plastic cup that goes on the bottom is super cheaply made and doesn't fit tight to the bottom of the cup. its meant mostly from keeping the stove fins from snagging any gear inside your pack. and i do believe that if the zip would be droped on a hard rock from a height of 4 plus feet it'd definitely crack/break the plastic cup. other than that this stove is the best option bang for buck wise.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limited range of usage I have several stoves (gas and liquid), and 2 JetBoils, and while the JetBoil delivers fast boiled water, that's pretty much all it can do. If you are a boiled-water only cooker, this is the way to go. However, if you cook directly in it, it is hard to clean. Also, the stove is basically useless for skillet or other pot use. I range from day trips to week-long backpack adventures, and can choose which stove type I want/need. If you have only one stove, I would not suggest this unless you only wnat boiling water (it's great at that). It's tops at what it does, but it's a one trick pony.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! I used this on a walking trip I took from Gardnerville, NV to Seattle, WA. I never had any problems with getting it started. Boils water SUPER FAST! When everything it comes with is stored inside the cup, the size and weight are very manageable. I did find it difficult to manage the temperature however. If there was too much gas, the water would boil out of control and and start bubbling up out of it and all over the place. I found out the hard way that if the water is boiling very rapidly, when it spills over the sides, it will melt the insulation material around the cup right on to it. Very difficult mess to clean up. Luckily it didn't do any damage. I found it best to turn the dial just enough to hear the gas flowing, then light it, then maybe turn it up ever so slightly more, then turn it off when the water starts to boil. The video that I took, attached to this review, was my very first time using it. I didn't realize at the time that the bottom of the cup attaches to the top of the stove area. Instead, I set the cup on the part that's suppose to be used for small frying pans. DO NOT DO THIS! Use it correctly, and it's very stable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Left me cold I recently purchaced a Jetboil to replace a reliable but older and somewhat heavier cooking system. I had used the Jetboil on several overnight trips and it worked great. But last week, while on a 4 day backpacking trip on the Art Loeb trail in Western NC, the Jetboil stopped working on the second day. The Jetboil is specially designed to work on a Jetboil system and is difficult at best to use over a fire. I understand that the even the best of systems sometimes have issues but the Jetboil failed on me on a very cold wet night when a warm meal was needed. I did learn however, that cold water will work with freeze dried food... Overall, I think the Jetboil is a great idea but the system is not made for backpacking. Looks like I am going back to old reliable

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Reliable I do see the complaints about poor temperature control. I must say that the control valve is a handful until it has warmed up, then it's pretty stable in flow control. I used it this time only to boil water for making coffee. The Jetboil Zip did this in minimal time and my campsite neighbors at last weekend's Fly-In envied me for my fresh coffee versus the watered-down stuff they had at the breakfast tent. It's very stable on the included tripod. I used it only twice this weekend but I'm sure the 100g Jetfuel can is nowhere near being empty. Very efficient fuel burn.
