Hello BPL friends. Over the Christmas holiday I spent some time working on a compact Jetboil kit that includes a windscreen and 600 ml mug. Enjoy the photos.
Titanium windscreen for Jetboil. When operated indoors (with no wind) the canister always passed the “finger-touch” test. The windscreen is held on canister with a silicone band.
The 17 gram Titanium windscreen, cut from foil purchased from Titanium Goat.
The windscreen is too large to be stowed inside the pot, but does fit outside, but just barely.
The kit also features a 600 mil cup; a wide-mouth, screw-top Nalgene with the top cut off. Much better than the cup than comes with the Jetboil kit.
The fuel canister fits perfectly in the Nalgene with room to spare on the bottom for your stove and lighter.
Then the Nalgene/canister fit neatly in the pot, with room to spare on top for the lid.
Here’s all of the individual pieces. Note that the Gary Dunkel Ti disc is not visible in this photo as it is in the pot heat exchanger. Everything, including the spoon, fits in the home-made Tyvek sack.
