31209Re: Cozy for JetBoil PCS
- Jun 4, 2013I just finished up a trip today and found that one small Jetboil canister was way more than needed for six days. I ended up flaring off the remaining contents of the canister after breakfast today so I could puncture and recycle the canister (wasn't sure where to donate a used canister and can't take it on flight home). It burned for 28 minutes before dying out. I boiled between 32-40 ounces of water per day and used the Erik the Black pot cozy design. I have the Sol Aluminum model. I'm now confident that I will not need more than one full canister when leaving MTR. I will donate my partially used canister to the hiker barrel when I arrive at MTR and buy a new one. Should be more than enough.
