User Review: MSR PocketRocket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $40
Overall great backpacking stove! Great for the money.
- Heats quickly
- Easy to use
- Not very stable
I got my PocketRocket about two years ago for an upcoming backpacking trip. It worked great on that trip and still is after about 150 days of use! I really like how light it is to carry in my pack and how easy the set up is. I've used MSR WhisperLite before and it takes a little more work to use (not much).
One thing I don't like about the PocketRocket is that it's not the most stable of stoves, but that's to be expected when you're going for lightweight and compact. I also don't like that you can only use one fuel type for this stove. That can be limiting when traveling abroad.
I would recommend this stove to anyone looking for a lightweight backpacking stove!
