    Default jetboil with 8.9oz primus

    was on the prowl today in anchorage for fuel for the jetboil. REI and sportsman were sold out, managed to pick up a few 8.9 oz primus canisters at AMH. Advise on how many boils you get out of these canisters?

    That's at least 8 days worth of fuel at 4 times per day, 3 cups each time. You'll bring some fuel home almost for sure.

    Jetboil is still KING.

    I always have trouble finding Jetboil fuel at any sporting goods place. I managed to score a bunch at Fred Meyers of all places. The clerk told me its a regular stocked item and was about 1/2 price compared to Sportsmans.

    I bought 8 or 10 for about $3 a piece.

    x2 thats where I found them,
    I also use the cheaper brunton canisters but they will not fit inside the cup like the small JB canisters will.

    I just buy them from Marc, he usually has them in stock. Wiggy's Alaska, on Old Seward just across Dimond from the Sportman's Warehouse.

    Default another option

    another option to use is the snowpeak cannisters.... they are DOT rated so you can ship them via air cargo if needed.... the jetboil cannisters are not rated and cannot be shipped via air.....

    I use the regular jetboil cans for my drive able hunts and the snowpeaks for when I fly out of a hub like Kotz or bethel....
