rated 5 of 5 stars 3 times a day, every day for 4 years. This is how every product should be made We are fortunate to live an unusual life on the road.  Some people love to eat out while traveling.  For us, we love to visit the local markets and shop for unusual ingredients then go back to our camp and make an interesting meal.   The MSR Dragonfly is the perfect stove for this type of travel.  It simmers beautifully yet produces a roaring flame when melting snow.   It burns a variety of fuels so there is no… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars A reliable lightweight workhorse of a backpacking stove. This stove works every time. It is reliable. It is so easy to set up—just screw it on to an isobutane container and you're ready to go. I don't even bother with any additional stand.

Quick 2 Pot Set

rated 5 of 5 stars All that I need from camping pots. They're very light, durable, non-stick, and compact—perfect kit from MSR! To be honest I never agreed with the idea of paying top dollar for a camping pot. I used to travel with a simple battered old aluminium pot I got for free with a van I bought while travelling in New Zealand. That pot served me for years, and it even had a lid you can lock to the pot. But every good thing comes to an end and I started to really worry about how much aluminium flakes I'm actually… Full review
