PocketRocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Never failed me, reliable, boils fast, small and convenient. I can always rely on MSR products. In fact I will not get any other brand stove. It has never failed me once or needed maintenance in the two years that I have used it. And let me tell you, I have used it everywhere in the Cascades of Washington! It performs miraculously, boils fast, loud, but that's OK. Can't be any easier to use, and it cools off fast, which is a real plus for meal in the morning when you want to get going. This thing… Full review

PanHandler Pot Lifter

rated 5 of 5 stars Just a little item, but one that makes camp stove cooking a bit easier. Used it primarily with Jetboil stove, so pots with long handles affixed can be easily knocked off, and make the stove off-balance. This works well with handle-less pots. We have come to rely on our canister stove for canoe camping...we also have begun to use small pots (in addition to the pot/mug that comes with the stove). We found that pots with large handles tended to get "tippy" on the stove, and were easily knocked off… Full review

MiniWorks EX

rated 5 of 5 stars This filter works great and is very easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a simple backwoods water filter. This filter has two parts. There is a foam filter at the end of the water intake tube. This foam removes large sediment and prevents debris from entering the filter system. It works well, but it's still a good idea to ensure that the water intake is not sitting in muck or surrounded by debris. The second part of this filter is the ceramic element (the part that actually… Full review

SuperFly

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Decent all round stove. The Superfly is a simple stove that works well for moderate use. Cooking on it is better than the Pocket or Micro Rockets from MSR as the burner is wider than average so it provides a much better simmer. It takes a couple minutes to boil 1.5L of water. The same burner makes it harder to fit well into pots.  Outside of that it is your average canister style stove. Fuel consumption is average, as is its weaknesses to the winds.  Overall not a bad buy. Simple and cooks well. Full review

DragonFly

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the bit of kit you use when you cannot afford for anything to go wrong! It is highly reliable and simple to use even when your brain is zonked out from the fatigue of climbing all day and altitude. I have used this stove on many occasions and from sea level up to 5,500 metres. It has worked beautifully for hours on end and never let me down. This item is critical above the tree line or on occasions when one is camping and circumstances do not allow open fires. Making breakfast for a team… Full review
