    I'm looking forward to a follow-up. I'm seriously thinking of asking "Mrs Santa" for this.

    Apologies. I was even thinking about it this weekend, but never found the time to even pull it out of the box.
    If I have a moment, I'll try and update this tonight or tomorrow.

    As my father would have said, "I've got a lot of irons in the fire" right now.

    Ok... follow up...

    Here is a picture of the stove, in its box, next to a 1 Lb Propane Bottle for size reference:

    The mesh bag that houses the stove offers very little protection, but will at least keep the lid and pot from getting separated in your packing:

    Here is everything I bought, including the optional "Any Pan" Adapter (which stores inside the pot with the rest of the parts):

    I filled the pot with 1/2 Liter of room temp water, since that is what all the JetBoil tests do. Fired it up with the push of a button. I was actually surprised at how little heat came out from the sides of the burner area while it was heating. I guess I was expecting a lot of heat to be escaping from the vents on the sides, but the design of the baffles really absorbed the heat (you can see them glowing red inside the vent slots). The button and valve are nicely positioned so that you are holding/turning one while pressing/sparking the other. Not at all awkward, and very sturdy on the Bottle Base:

    It brought the 1/2 Liter of water to a boil in just under 2 minutes, just like the product claims. I also clipped on the "Any Pan" Adapter and put my (very heavy) 8 inch Calphalon skillet on it:

    I wouldn't travel with such a Pan, but it was nice to know that it would work if needed. After use, I took a look at the bottom of the 1.3 Liter Pot and was amazed that it was spotless. I guess I expected it to have some soot or discoloration on it, but it was as new.

    Overall I am very impressed and would recommend this stove to anyone who wants to get away from the tiny and expensive Iso-Butane cans.

    (Ok... maybe Four Smileys and a Smirk, due to the flimsy mesh bag).

    Those Camp Chef Stryker stoves can be found on EBay also ...

    I've done so much with so little for so long ... Now I can do nearly anything with almost nothing.

    Yeah, there wasn't a lot of discounting going on with eBay when I was shopping, and when I found they had the stove for $49 and the Pan Adapter for only $13... that was the clincher.

    That's cheap.
    When I bought mine, the cheapest guy on eBay wanted that much in shipping!

    [Edit: Even though it doesn't show it in their picture, it does come with the metal plate that functions as a flame diffuser (helps keep non-Stryker pans from scorching.)]

    Really... guess it pays to wait. My pot adapter has no such thing.
