I haven't been around much lately due to work, but my company just got bought out, and I'm out of work with a bit of time on my hands until something comes along.

I've been reviewing the new MSR Windboiler.


I've got two videos posted that show wind testing. One video is of a Jetboil, and the other of the MSR Windboiler. The winds in the desert canyon were strong, and the results are quite dramatic.


Of course it's just nice to get out. There are still some really nice places even with the drought.


Anyway, it's nicely done stove. I'm sure it won't be for everyone, but for those who want a nicely integrated system or astounding levels of windproofness, it'd be a great choice. Either way the review is worth reading. Of course. smile

Nice review!

It's good that someone is finally starting to make a reasonable challenge to jetboil.

Also, I'm not sure you were very active when it was discussed, but have you checked out my stove efficiency calculator? I think it might help you add some nice info to your blog.
