Lightweight and compact in the pack but providing backcountry hikers and climbers with efficient canister fuel cooking in the wilderness, the MSR PocketRocket Stove has already won Reader’s Choice awards from Backpacker Magazine.

Super easy to use, just turn on the gas and light it with no pumping, priming or cleaning out the fuel line. Flame control is easy thanks to a glove-friendly adjustment valve and a Windclip™ wind shield protects the flame and boosts this canister stove’s efficiency.

Tiny but powerful!
August 17, 2011

This stove is amazing. It's small and lightweight yet packs a punch. I was impressed by how fast it boiled water. I used it for a weekend and still had fuel left over. It fits neatly into the camp pots for it so it's easy to pack.

Pros: Great design, Ease of use
Durability: 4 / 5

great value

For the price this little stove met my needs. It is small enough to pack inside my cookware and worked well under a variety of of camping conditions. It's nice to get decent reliable gear without breaking the bank for a change.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

A must for backpacking.
December 31, 2011

Lightweight, durable and easy to pack. No one should go without one of these bad boys. Many back-country spots in Utah do not allow campfires and you'll need a lightweight alternative to cook meals, this is that alternative. Also when backpacking in winter sometimes fuel for camp fires is not available or too wet to get a good fire going. The MSR camp stove is perfect for all cooking needs in the back-country or just in the foothills .

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: gas can get pricey

It really is a small and powerful appliances!
July 29, 2011

It really is a small and powerful appliances! Weight only 86 grams! This little bit of weight is almost negligible! Although very small, but his fire is very fierce! Boil 1 liter of water about 4 minutes or so, is a rare, light weight, firepower outdoor stoves! Importantly, it is cheap! Recommended buy! Very good!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever

Great Stoves
May 24, 2008

I just used two of these to the extremely windy Guadalupe Mountains. The stoves are super small, light and they worked excellent in the wind. Great stoves!

My favorite summit stove
January 03, 2010

The size and weight are just incredible, and it's been quite reliable. The construction is solid and confidence-inspiring. Like most stoves it benefits greatly from some sort of windscreen when used in gusty conditions.

Great Stove
July 27, 2009

Great little stove . I love it . Im taking it with me backpacking in the Rockies. I think the fuel should last a bit longer . But its still good.


September 16, 2009

They were really helpful and lasted the whole trip. I would recommend these for any camping trip. They were also light in weight and didn't take up much space.

It is a great stove when I don't need my XKG
February 13, 2006

Light is the word. Great fast boil times and about as simple a design as you could imagine. Simmers nice and does it all for a great price. If you own an alchol stove this is a great second stove kit. Don't foget light!!!

cant beat it
December 10, 2010

For the price, this product cannot be beaten. I took this on a 5 day canoe trip. Worked great. Lightweight and durable. Takes up very little space and comes in a great packable container. One "tank" of fuel lasted the entire trip, but just barley. The flame does get quite intense and will burn certain foods, but the adjustable flame makes it quite easy to control. Would recommend this product for anyone.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: burns food

Good cheap product
June 06, 2005

This was my first stove purchase. The stove works great. Quite powerful. Don't forget to buy a lighter though. It's hard to get a match working in even a light wind.

Incredible package
January 08, 2006

totally small, it is super easy to use. I don't mind not having the starter because those usually break anyways, and you should have a lighter on a backpacking trip anyways. The fuel canisters last longer than you'd think as well.

Durability: 4 / 5
Quality: 5 / 5

Small but works
June 01, 2012

This is my first stove, I tried to get a cheap but working one. This stove met all my expectations. I've been using this stove for about 6 months now, it never failed me. Some of the reviews complaint about the wind problem, you just need to make up with some covers to block the wind. It's not a hard job to do. The stove is compact, great plus for me.

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
