An ultra light, fast-boiling and very compact canister stove for minimalist travellers.
ULTRALIGHT - FAST - COMPACT AND STRONG - WIND RESISTANT
Fuel type: Gas
Gas cartridge type: Screw-on
Bruner type: Single burner
Boil time for 1L: 3 min 30 secs
Material: Stainless steel
The MSR PocketRocket™ 2 stove is an even smaller and lighter design of their original Pocket Rocket backpacking stove. Its precision flame control goes from torch to simmer, while the WindClip™ windshield boosts efficiency in breezy conditions. Its newly designed folding pot supports create an exceptionally tiny packed size, and can accommodate a wider range of vessels.
Barely noticeable in your pack, it’s fast at camp, boiling 1 litre of water in 3.5 minutes.
Purchased for use with wild camping, stove itself folds down small enough it can fit even in any pocket. It does burn through fuel very quickly, but efficiently, boils a liter of cold water in just a few minutes. If you're planning on doing a lot of cooking/heating, perhaps not the best stove for your needs. For a quick meal on the move, perfect.

What a brilliant piece of kit: light, powerful, easy to use. Probably something that everyone should have.

awesome bit of kit
Fantastic little stove, lightweight and boils a pan of water in minutes, packs down to a tiny size which can be carried in any pack pocket. It will definitely coming with me on Pennine Way after a trial in the Peaks. Use with universal gas canister stand for more stability. Highly recomend

I brought this after having a Trangia. The Trangia was great, but for speed of boiling, this thing is awesome! It's not called the pocket rocket without reason! On full power, it sounds like a jet taking off!
Great all round stove!
Only downside: May be too aggressive for slower cooking. Even on a low heat, its very powerful.
