#4 2011 Gear of the Year: Jetboil Sol Ti
This is one of my 2011 additions. I go through a lot of cook gear combinations and I think I’ve finally found the right one (okay, until the next greatest thing comes out).
I wrote about the Jetboil Sol Ti back in July. The expectations that I had going into the summer backpacking season were met and even exceeded by this handy cook system. It’s quick, efficient, and packs down well.
I’ve been a Jetboil user for years but on many backpacks chose against it in favor of lighter, more compact systems. Now I’ve found a solution that has the same weight and size benefits as my other systems, while maintaining the efficiency and ease of a Jetboil. It’s great! Definitely one of the best purchases of 2011.
