User Review: MSR PocketRocket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $29.95
From a simmer to a boil, no problem for this lightweight stove. Reliable and simple to operate. This stove takes very little space in your pack.
- Adjustable flame
- Cold weather
The PocketRocket is a great little stove for the money. It comes in a small lightweight case, that nests right inside most pots. You can put a small bic lighter in the case as well. It is easy to light and boils a pot of water very quickly. The use of a sheet of folded aluminum foil for a wind break increases the stoves ability to work in windy conditions.
This stove is great for lightweight backpacking and for day hikers who want a hot lunch or a cup of cocoa on the trail.
The main detraction of this stove is its ability to hold a larger pot with some stability. It is best used for boiling small pots of water for dehydrated meals and for hot drinks. As with most canister stoves it suffers in cold weather with gas flow.
I would recommend this stove to friends.
