Backpacker Magazine – ORSM 14: Cooking. A nice article and review of the latest in lightweight cooking gear for 2014. My sons and I have worked with “JetBoil” in the past and had things we really liked (and some things we didn’t like as much) about that line of gear for backpacking.
Backpacking supplies are not “cheap” (inexpensive), but they’re not “cheap” (flimsy) either…I’m always amazed at the delicate, lightweight but sturdy construction of these stoves and nesting pots/cups for trail cooking!
