I am selling:
Both items are new, in original packaging, with original price tags. They have never been used, nor opened. I bought them last year in a compulsive shopping spree, but I never ended up using them - I am now using a different cooking system which packs smaller.
They both retails for 99.99$ in store. I am asking 85$+shipping (or local pick up in the Chicago area). The difference between the two is that the Flash system also has a tripod that acts as a stabilizer; the other one does not.

If you are unfamiliar with the Jetboil cooking stove system, you can find more information here: http://shop.jetboil.com/index.php/flash.html. In a nutshell, it is an integrated cooking system that combines a burner with piezo ignition, a cooking vessel and a measuring cup/drinking cup.

In Viet Nam we used a low C-Ration can with holes on the side and top cut out. Insert a heat tab and make coffee. It was for free except it could have cost you your life. A stove was usually carried in the back pack or cargo pocket and used repeatedly until the metal began to fail. A small chunk of C-4 explosive could also be substituted for the Trioxin tablet for faster heating. It would burn hotter and was much better for heating water.

Pretty sure these jetboils are safer!

We use MRE heater bags now , just add a splash of water and your good to go. Plus you can make MRE heater bombs in plastic bottles when bored , a 2 liter bottle gun taped with 3 bags inside will make a huge boom in the shacks .
