      If you guys figure out any formatting tricks let me know.  My posts are always loaded with wxtra white space and sometimes ghost attachments.  I'd like t fix that.

      the web message looked identical to the below -- how do you compose the posting, are you doing some copying and pasting from something with invisible characters?

      Visit my Google Profile (lots of very interesting research links)

      I've found that a cozy really expands my cooking options with the JetBoil

       (I have the PCS, the original version of the one-person JetBoil now replaced with the similar Flash and the Sol models)




      A cozy allows me to efficiently cook things like regular pasta, rather than just angel hair, SteelCut Irish Oatmeal rather than instant, tortellini, etc. With a cozy I don't have to try to maintain the JetBoil at a simmer and I don't have to use a lot of fuel for foods that say that they require 10 minutes of more of simmering. (Sometimes repeat simmer-and-steeps are required esp. at altitude where simmering water is not as hot as at sea level)

      The cozy that I


      found at REI

      (a one liter Outdoor Products insulated bottle holder)




      the PCS


      . But it

      is no longer carried by REI

      . It

      has become very hard to find




      ut I just stumbled across it again

      It is now offered here


      The PCS pot size is

      4.1” x 7.1” (104 mm x 180 mm)



      The JetBoil Flash uses the same size pot, so it should work for that as well


      It should also fit the Sol 

      and the Titanium Sol 

      4.1” x 6.5”.


      Dimensions of the holder 4.25 in outer Diameter by 9 inch high. I don't know the weight but pretty light and if it allows you to use a 110 gram net weight isobutane canister rather than the 220 gram size it is way worth the weight. I get 24 cooked meals out of the 110's in part due to the cozy.


      Looks like this. Insulated with urethane foam and a reflective inner liner.
