My Review of MSR Pocket Rocket Backpacking Stove


Hands-down winner in the race for space! The tiny MSR Pocket Rocket stove delivers full-size performance yet fits into the smallest corner of your pack.

Great Little Stove

4 5

Gift: No

Pros: Compact, Powerful, Easy to Light, Lightweight

Cons: Need to bring lighter, Need to ad a can stand

Best Uses: Car Camping, Backpacking

Describe Yourself: Avid Adventurer

What Is Your Gear Style: Minimalist

This is a great little stove. I have been using one for over a year now.

Its a little unstable in the stock version. I improved mine by adding a Brunton can stand from REI which fits the MSR fuel canisters perfectly. Also unlike a jetfuel you have to bring a lighter or matches.

Its super lightweight and small and a great option for the budget minded backpacker. I would get a small 1 or 2QT Open Country saucepan and you are good to go!
