There are many different types and sizes of stoves out there on the market, but few if any of them will boil two cups of water as fast as the JetBoil Sol Advanced Cooking System. I have used several different types and models of stoves over the last 20 years but none has impressed me as much as this stove. The integration and way they have engineered all of the parts to pack together so perfectly is at the top of the list of impressive features. Anytime you are packing gear into a backpack space is at a premium. The JetBoil Sol stove is designed in such a way to save as much space as possible.
The whole kit is also very lightweight, yet it is also very sturdy where it needs to be. It’s also flexible enough to take repeated abuse in areas like the tripod fuel stabilizer stand. The fuel cartridges are manufactured in three convenient sizes (100 grams, 230 grams, and 450 grams) and are optimized to work in the widest range of temperatures on the market in this class of fuel. Here is a look at what the manufacturer has to say about this stove on their site:

The Jetboil Sol stove weighs in at 10.5 ounces (excluding the pot support and tripod fuel stabilizer). The included pot will hold up to 27 ounces (.8 liters). The Sol will boil a half of liter of water in about two minutes flat! The smallest 100-gram fuel canister is enough fuel to boil up 12 full liters of water. The Sol is approximately 4.1 inches wide by 6.5 inches high when it is all packed up. It is also compatible with the Jetboil hanging kit, coffee press, and all of the other Jetboil-specific accessories. Considering the outstanding performance and quality of this product I believe it is priced right at $114.95 at places like Survival Warehouse.
