Need boiling water in 2 minutes when out in the wilderness ? The Jetboil Flash is just what you need. The complete cooking system stores in the boiling mug and can easily be put together in under 20 seconds. One of the best features of the Jetboil Flash is its inbuilt starter so matches or a lighter are really only a backup, I have never had to use either as the starter works every time.
One of the biggest considerations when any soldier is going on patrol is weight, with the Jetboil it easily fits into the top of a daypack or a decent sized pouch on a chest rig and because it all fits into the one cup it is easy pack away when finished.
Another feature of the Jetboil Flash is the color change indicator which lets you know when your water is boiled. This cooking system is really only a one man system it is not made for sharing. It is really suited to the Military as it is light, easy to store, easy to clean and very easy to operate. If you need hot water in a hurry this is the one for you, for backpackers or anybody looking to actually cook or fry something look else where.
