How would you summarize the vision of the brand in a few words? How does the products represent this vision?
Jetboil is owned by Johnson Outdoors, a group specializing in camping, fishing, kayaking and diving. In 2001, Dwight Aspinwall and Perry Dowst revolutionized backcountry cooking by creating a fast, compact and efficient stove, the very first Jetboil. Since then, engineers have taken up the torch, constantly pushing the limits of the possible by inventing technologies that continue to redefine the industry. Their competitors include MSR, GSI Outdoors and Optimus.
Jetboil has developed a complete cooking system, the cup, the burner and the tripod connect to form a unit. When not in use, the entire system fits snugly into the cup, so it occupies minimal space in a backpack.
Their products are used by many exploration enthusiasts in the hinterland, for a long hike or just for a wild camping weekend. Their burners are compact, durable and ingeniously designed. Indeed, they retain the heat by using only a reasonable amount of fuel. In addition, the tripod is stable, which avoids cooking disasters if a wind gets up or that we travel with someone awkward.
Cook & Boil: Best-in-class stoves and regulated systems feature advanced valve control for an ultimate dining experience in nature. This is the best choice for mountaineers or winter conditions.
Custom Cook & Boil: More versatility for larger groups.

What are the flagship product of the brand and why?
The Flash Cooking System is very versatile and lightweight, the biggest seller at Jetboil. The volume makes it an excellent choice for traveling alone or in pairs.
An additional accessory can be paired with Flash to turn it into JavaPress, the time to prepare a coffee.
Micromo One person / 4 seasons / 0.5L. It's the lightest and quietest design at just 12oz, but with advanced heat and simmering control, which allows you to repackage while minimizing busy volume without compromising performance.
What sets this brand apart from these competitors?
The time required for boiling water and the stability of the stove.
The "Original" Flux ring on the cup base maximizes the heat transfer efficiency of the burner flame to the contents of the cup. The aluminum ring increases the contact area at the bottom of the cup without increasing the diameter of the cup. This means that half a liter of water can be boiled in two minutes.
