I already have the JetBoil Sol Aluminum and have been loving it. But for my wife’s emergency pack, I wanted a JetBoil as well. Looking at the various models, the JetBoil Zip was the least expensive, so at the risk of missing some features, I picked one up on Amazon.
The Zip is really not that different from the Sol, except that it’s missing the piezo igniter and the fuel regulator.
Is this a problem? Not really. You can use a lighter with the Zip to ignite it, and the regulator isn’t particularly valuable if you’re just boiling some water in reasonable temperatures.
Overall, I think the Zip is a great buy, and while still not cheap, much lower cost, with all the advantages of any other JetBoil.
I clocked the boil time at for about 0.7L of water at 2:41. Certainly enough to get a good 15 boils out of it. Which is plenty good enough for 5 days of 3 water boils per day.
The gas canister stabilizer, the stove piece, the cap, and the protection cover/cup are all it comes with, but that’s really all you need. The stove adaptor is a waste anyway as you wouldn’t really use a JetBoil as a stove unless it was a real emergency. It’s just not really designed for cooking.
Boiling water in colder temperatures (heck, even cooler temps) will mean that you won’t get all of the fuel out of an LPG gas canister, but it’s more than adequate for emergency water boiling use.
With well over 30 stoves, from alcohol, to white gas, to kerosene/diesel, to butane, to LPG, as well as some wood burning stoves, all lined up in my garage and well used, there’s no question that there isn’t a stove on the market right now that compares to a JetBoil (zip/flash/sol) or MSR Reactor, when it comes to total weight (including fuel) to 1 week’s usage.
Alcohol stoves are lighter, but a week’s worth of fuel will make the weight considerably higher than a JetBoil and 100 gram canister. multi-fuel stoves are the heaviest of the lot. And while wood burning stoves are lighter when you get to two weeks, the problem with those are supplies needed to clean them, time required to clean them, and inefficiency in setting up, boiling, and putting away, which makes through hikes just a little more of a hassle.
So if you’re just getting into camping, and are on a budget, get the JetBoil Zip (and make, tea/coffee/hot chocolate, instant soups and ramen, dehydrated food, or oatmeal). Most folks new to backpacking tend to want to avoid spending a lot of time cooking, and a hot drink that’s ready so fast that it’s just 5 minutes from the time you think of it to the first sip, is much more important than the ability to simmer a stew. Trust me on this.
It's small, so it will fit easily in your backpack or a canteen pouch. The fuel canister fits inside the Jetboil, saving space as well.
Couple of downsides (but very minor)
1. It does not have a automatic starter. Which means you'll need a lighter or matches. SIDE NOTE... they do make models with the automatic starter.
2. The fuel canister is small. Meaning that if your out more than 8 days, youll either want to go with a larger canister (which will not fit in the Jetboil) or carry a couple extra small canisters. My buddy had the large canister and it never ran out over a course of 16 days.

For any fellow HM Forces reading; the only drawback is trying to get your gas through Brize!
Pros: light and practical all in one solution
Cons: single person size.
JetBoil now does a family size pot and burner set, which might be better for a two or more people group.
Still performs well and is made to Jetboil's usually very high standards. Overall, very pleased.
