JetBoil Gas Can Crusher

Backpacker Magazine has been covering the new gear on display at the Outdoor Retail Show in Salt Lake City this week. Here is one that really caught my eye:

Check out this $5 tool by JetBoil. Screw it on a spent butane canister, and it will release any residual gas. Pry down to puncture the canister, then give it a good boot-stomp to crush it and, finally, throw it in the recycling bin. Done.

Follow along with their blog to get the latest info for stuff next spring.
