Jetboil Zip Backpack Stove
Cook Faster with Less Fuel
Jetboil Zip™ provides light weight in a pared-down yet complete backpacker’s cooking system. Innovative FluxRing® on the bottom of the cooking cup shields, vents and directs the flame for maximum efficiency. No windscreen required. Insulated cover/cozy and snap-on rubber lid decrease heating time and then help to keep the contents hot.
Set up in a brisk 50-degree crosswind, our Zip brought two cups of water to a full boil in less than 2 minutes. Jetboil touts the Zip as ideal for making a quick cup of tea or preparing an entire hot meal.

Leupold® VX-R™ Illuminated Riflescopes combine fiber optic technology with a FireDot™ reticle for fast, precise target acquisition in any light. A touch of a button illuminates the dot within the reticle, and the shooter can quickly select one of eight intensity settings pushing the same button. After five minutes of inactivity, the system switches to stand-by mode to save battery life but then automatically reactivates at the same intensity the next time the rifle is moved. The dot illuminates with bright, sharp definition while the rest of the reticle remains non-illuminated, leading the eye naturally to center aiming. Models include: 1.25-4x20mm, 2-7x33mm, 3-9x40mm, 3-9x50mm, 4-12x40mm and 4-12x50mm. The 3-9x and 4-12x models offered with Custom Dial System that lets the shooter set the scope to match the ballistics of the chosen cartridge and get on target quickly at any range. Index Matched Lens System maximizes light transmission. Blackened lens edges enhance clarity and contrast. DiamondCoat ion-assisted lens coatings optimizes light management and abrasion resistance. One-turn, non-locking eyepiece for smooth, fast focus adjustment. Precision finger-click adjustments for windage and elevation. Second generation Argon/Krypton waterproofing. All backed by a Full Lifetime Guarantee. Contact: Leupold, Dept. FFG, P.O. Box 688, Beaveton, OR 97075-0688; (800) 538-7653; www.leupold.com
