Cold Weather Brand Review by JS

Jetboil uses a blend of 80/20 (80% isobutane and 20% propane). Because of the low boiling point of propane and medium range of isobutane the fuel vaporizes well in low temperatures. However, only drawback is that because propane has a lower boiling point it tends to feed faster then the isobutane which causes the feed to drop near the end after the propane burns off. The trick to avoid this with the Jetboil is to keep the canister warm (inside your sleeping bag, wrapped in clothes, basically anything that will keep it warm). This will help the isobutane to feed alongside with the propane.

This makes the Jetboil ideal for cold weather areas. Be careful which brands you select based on weather and elevation. Different blends give different results. (n-butane, isobutane (isomer of butane), and propane.

Jetboil, Brunton and MSR share the same blend, price, and authority. Any of these brands would be ideal for cold weather.
