User Review: MSR PocketRocket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $30
- Weight (without fuel)
- Can tip easily
- Sharp, pointed ends can damage gear
- Does not fit in MSR's own Minimalist Cookset
What can I add that hasn't already been said about this great stove? It's easy to set up. It heats water super fast. The flame is adjustable. And it literally fits into your pocket (or cook set).
I'm more partial to alcohol stoves, because the fuel is lighter and easier to pick up at any convenience store, but I have to admit, the PocketRocket gets my water up to a faster boil, shortening my cooking time significantly.
The price on this is a big selling factor. I know JetBoil appears to be a superior system, but this is little stove is a full $60-$90 cheaper.
If you're looking for a lightweight, entry level (and beyond) stove, I'd go with this one.
