When I thought about going for an overnight camp and then considered doing the Cape to Cape trail my biggest concern was how was I going to eat good enough whilst keeping my pack weight down. Introducing Jetboil the revolutionary new cooking system tailored specifically to hikers. With many options available across the Jetboil range I thought the best option for a two man team would be the Jetboil MiniMo Personal Cooking System.
A personal cooking system that is big enough to accomodate 2 peoples hunger. MiniMo delivers unparalleled simmer control with metal handles for ease of handling, and a low spoon angle for easy eating!
I was surprised how quickly the MiniMo was able to boil water to make a cup of tea or reheat a simple can of baked beans. It may seem hard to imagine given its size, however with the choice of either 100gram or 230gram fuel contains a blend of propane and iso butane. Very Powerful.
A 100 gram canister of Jetpower fuel boils up to 10-12 liters of water. For trip planning, count on 6-10 liters per canister for some extra margin (6L for colder temps). It never hurts to have an extra canister of fuel along, and it might make a big difference in comfort and safety.
An added benefit of both canisters is that they fit conveniently inside the MiniMo cup for even further reduction of wasted space with your backpack.
Certainly a great addition to any overnight backpack whether you are hiking, cycling or mountain biking. For more information see the information below or check out the Jetboil website.
