Description

For heavy use in rugged terrain.

MSR made its Fuel Bottle from a single piece of aluminum and added an air-tight seal so there's less leaking and cracking. The Fuel Bottle works with the threaded pumps on your MSR stove. Holes in the shaft of the bottle cap prevent spills and provide more controlled pouring capabilities. You can store and transport your MSR fuel pump in the Fuel Bottle once the bottle is depressurized.

Great bottle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had this bottle for over 10 years, still works well, the cap I have is the old type that tightens down on a O-Ring, and its finally starting to crack after many years of use, still have the tag on it $7.95, apparently things have gone up in price, none the less, it'll last you forever. Mine as well have one in each size!

It does its job

What can one say about a metal bottle? It works. However I suggest wrapping it in duct tape; I've heard of people touching it full in the winter and getting frostbite. Something to do with the temperature of the gas inside. Solid though, mine has many dents

Responded on

You're not going to get frostbite from touching the bottle, the frostbite risk is from spilling fuel on your skin- so don't do that. (though I've spilled a bit of fuel on my hands in winter and been fine, it sure is cold, and in extreme environments I could see that being a big problem).

Touching any cold metal object will make you lose heat faster, so just wear gloves and minimize direct contact with any cold metal when you're winter camping- that includes tent poles, pots, etc

Holds fuel..

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I haven't had any issues with any that I have owned.. I have every size and they all seem to be great.
It would be kinda hard to screw something up that is so basic. The safety style caps are fine just like the regular non safety style.

Bombproof!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things do their job and then some! I have taken them everywhere, and they have held up through everything. A friend of mine had one in his trunk when he got rear-ended, and although it got smashed in, it still pressurized and worked the next time! These work with most stove fittings. As a plus, you can slap a goat on these too!

Here is a volume/weight comparison with the Primus bottles.

MSR:
11 fl. oz/.33L, 2.8oz/79g weight
22 fl. oz/.65L, 4.9oz/139g weight
33 fl. oz/.98L, 7.3oz/207g weight

Primus:
0.6L/20.3 fl.oz 5.0oz/144g weight
1.0L/33.8 fl.oz 7.51oz/213g weight
1.5L/50.7 fl.oz 9.84oz/279g weight

Simple, reliable fuel storage

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Stands up to everything the accompanying stove can

Just don't accidentally drink from it

Does what it needs to

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bottles do what they need to do so there really isn't much that needs to be said about them. They hold fuel and feed it to the stove. If you have an MSR liquid fuel stove you need one anyway.

Trust it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have 4 of these in different sizes for different fuels. Love em.

the golden standard

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Never had an issue with these bottles. The three sizes make fuel reserving and use easy: 22 or 32 as backup, with an 11 for most cooking and trips. The 32 fits well in oversized bike bottle cages for bike touring too.

many sizes.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have all 3 sizes, and I choose what to take depending on the length of my trip.
These bottles can take a beating, and I feel like they will last me forever.

Child cap

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have extensive use of these bottles with both the traditional cap and child cap with both Whisperlites and Dragonflies, I'm quite disappointed in the child safety caps, they are a pain to use and the original caps are much more reliable, the original cap makes it 5 stars, the child cap is barely a singe star.

don't be afraid to drop

I use this with the whisperlite stove for backpacking trips and it works great. for a ten day trip we usually take about two 21 oz. bottles and have plenty white gas left over. It's refillable and sturdy.

Classic for a reason

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things have been around forever.. for a reason. Bomber construction and pretty much your only option for liquid fueled MSR stoves. I have one of each size which gives a lot of versatility. Being in Utah, I tend to be backpacking over 10,000' pretty frequently - I've found that the small bottle lasts 2 nights x 2 people and the medium lasts 3+ nights x 4 people. This is for cooking home-dehydrated meals - I'm sure you'd get more mileage if only boiling water. The large size is great for larger groups/ longer trips to carry fuel. I don't tend to run a stove off the large bottle if I can avoid it - it takes a lot more pumping to keep the bottle pressurized if it's half empty with a huge airspace inside the bottle, especially at higher elevations.

Different sizes optimize utility

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

accommodate trips of different lengths. That's great for minimizing weight and size impact of your cooking system. The bottle will take a beating. Make sure to inspect it before setup to avoid a catastrophe. Pressurize, this bottle becomes a bomb.

Solid

This is a great fuel bottle and it is durable and does the job well. I have not had a problem with leaking or anything.

Industry standard!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These fuel bottles are the only ones that don't leak when the temps get high in the desert. I prefer the 11 oz for my light and fast solo trips, or for my overnight alpine climbs. Plenty of fuel to last you for days and it doesn't end up weighing any more than the two canisters you'd have to bring. I even still have bottles from the 80's that have zero problems. I always carry a small cap (the non-childproof one) in my bag in case my pump starts leaking. Almost zero extra weight and no extra bulk. Love these things.

Great fuel bottle

Durable, different enough from a water bottle that no one drinks out of it, No leaking problems. Childproof cap is nice. Even if you don't have children, it prevents the cap from loosening when crammed in your pack on a rough trail. MSR knows what they are doing!
