User Review: MSR PocketRocket
Price Paid: $30
An excellent value. I got mine at Adventure16 for only $30 - they had a 25% off sale on all MSR products. It has a wide range flame adjustment, allowing you to perform most cooking. It isn't the greatest for delicate foods like pancakes or baking, but is perfect for frying and boiling water.
You need to make a homemade windshield for it (just google canister stove wind shield) out of tin and aluminum foil. Also, for cold weather, a copper wire heat exchanger is a must (you can google that also). But with those 2 items in your pack also (adds about 1 oz extra weight) you can even use this stove in frigid weather.
If you take the time to make the wind screen and heat exchanger, then this stove becomes the best combination of weight, performance, and price on the market.
