February 20, 2024 — Racine, WI — Jetboil®, the world’s leading innovator of outdoor cooking systems, proudly announces its partnership with Darby Communications, a PR and digital marketing agency specializing in the outdoor, active lifestyle, and hunt/fish markets. Effective immediately, Darby Communications will serve as Jetboil’s PR agency of record, amplifying product and brand awareness through targeted PR and media relations.
In 2004, Jetboil revolutionized how people cook meals on the trail. Since pioneering the very first integrated personal stove system 20 years ago, Jetboil has continued to push the limits of what’s possible by engineering outdoor cooking systems that deliver the ultimate in speed, efficiency, and convenience. From best-selling fast boil systems, precision cooking systems, and basecamp systems to premium cookware, Jetboil is renowned worldwide for inventing technologies that redefine the outdoor industry. Earlier this year, Jetboil launched its TrailWare collection of outdoor utensils, designed to easily extend and reach inside a Jetboil cookpot or dehydrated meal package. The brand is also cooking up several limited edition products, which will launch later in 2024.
“We are thrilled to partner with Darby Communications and leverage their expertise in the outdoor industry to accelerate our growth and empower more consumers to experience the great outdoors,” says Craig Smith, Senior Director of Brand Management for Johnson Outdoors.
Through this strategic partnership, Darby Communications will leverage its extensive industry expertise and network of media contacts to reignite Jetboil’s international brand awareness and generate meaningful media coverage of the legacy brand’s best-selling cook systems. Darby Communications will also assist Jetboil with key product launches and limited edition releases by seeking opportunities for brand storytelling and relationship building through curated media events.
