    Backcountry super hero.

    Back and better than ever, the MSR PocketRocket 2 Stove takes everything that you loved about the iconic original and puts it into an even smaller and lighter package for quick meals deep in the backcountry. Weighing in at a meager four ounces, the Pocket Rocket 2 uses a compact folding design to pack down exceptionally small and save you precious space in your already crowded backpack.

    Its ability to boil one liter of water in three and a half minutes comes to the rescue when you reach camp after a grueling trek in and hunger's been knocking down your door for the past hour, while its precision flame control ranges from torch to simmer to meet your cooking needs. And if conditions turn breezy, count on the WindClip windshield to help you get the job done before the clouds roll in.

      I purchased this stove because I wanted to reduce the amount of unnecessary gear I carried. In that I found the Msr Pocket Rocket2. It’s name is perfectly descriptive. It’s powerful,light and is the perfect addition to my cookware arsenal. Also a thumbs up to Backcountry as usual for providing great specs!

      Killer Stove

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This really is the go-to stove for backpacking/camping. It packs down insanely small, first of all. It is very durable, and the temperature adjustability is such a sweet feature. When unfolded, it 's super stable and gives a good sized platform for a pot. If you need a compact, powerful, adjustable stove, you really can't go wrong here.

      Lots of power, Nice simmer!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This stove is the perfect combination of having all the power you want with all of the control you need! This thing blows all other tiny stoves out of the water and i've even done side by side comparisons of this stove and a few of the others, including the whisperlite and the Jetboil!

      This is a Stove

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Don't expect anything else besides a reliable, robust, compact stove. And don't throw caution completely to the flames either. As with any back country etiquette its important to watch while you're cooking; especially with this guy. I found that with the canister, the height of the stove, and the vessel I was using to cook, things tended to get a little top heavy. Nothing worse than a spilled dinner! Nonetheless a great stove that I am happy to use time and time again.

      Great little stove

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great little stove and I used it all summer with over 50 nights of camping. I love that you can adjust the temperature and it is so light weight, durable, and compact. It did loosen up a little but was easy to fix by tightening the little philips head screw.

      Reliable, light, small

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love this thing. Its so simple, small, and light. It puts out a good amount of heat and boils water quite quickly, but you can also put a pan on it and make some scrambled eggs in the morning which is very nice. I've had mine for a couple years now and it is still working flawlessly.

      So Reliable and Packable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This Pocket rocket stove is so great. It's so easy to use, so effortless to pack, and so effective cooking a quick meal when out camping or backpacking. I have taken it out many of times now and it has worked out awesome for me every time. Love the small size as well as the top notch performance!

      Great Little Stove

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      We used this little guy for multiple meals without fail on a 5 day hike. Lightweight, compact and reliable. Perfect when size and weight are important.

      Lightweight and Reliable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      I've used this on multiple hiking and camping trips. It ways next to nothing, but is not at all flimsy. Does the job well, what more can I say?

      Solid little camping stove

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Took it to Iceland and used it for dinners and breakfast for 5 or so days. Stows super small, easy to attach, easy to control flame and therefore temperature. Took a little bit for us to boil water, but we also had a tall but skinny pot, so I think that contributed to that more than the stove itself. Only issue we had was balance, but that wasn't really the stove's fault, but rather the canisters we used (which weren't MSR). Would recommend getting the stabilizer. Also, FYI any random camping fuel seems to work fine. I know there are quality differences, but we couldn't find MSR fuel in Iceland so we used some little local brand, and it worked just fine. Love it! Was great for backpacking but will probably take car camping in the states too as it's easier to set up than my coleman two-burner stove for something quick like coffee.

      Hey, are you tryna cook the heck out of some camping food? LOOK NO FURTHER, The MSR PocketRocket 2 Stove cooks the heck out of some food. It has variable cooking temperatures so you can really get that Gordon Ramsey effect in your meal. (have you ever watched that Youtube video where he cooks eggs? It changed my life.) You can cook in basically any weather condition thanks to the WindClip windshield...This one time I hiked up to this 12000 foot peak and made dinner, it was windier than a January Chicago morning, NO MATTER for the PocketRocket 2, the flame prevailed.

      I am fond of this thing, it's light-weight, compact, and it works! Would recommend!

      Mighty Mouse

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have used this little guy in a million different scenarios and it has always preformed. From saving weight on a backpacking trip to tossing it in the day bag for a hot meal on a cold hike, I love this thing. Super efficient on gas and boils water in no time at all, it does exactly what it is intended to. Strong winds can create some issues in wide open areas but that is kind of to be expected when you have such an ultralight stove with exposed flame. Overall a great product that I will continue to have in my pack for numerous activities.

      Great product

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love this stove. Very compact and small, yet it deserves the name "rocket" when in use. I only wish it did better in wind, or it could be used with a windscreen

      Reliable Stove

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The folding handles were bit tricky to get used to at first. The collapsed shape is a little awkward as well. Aside from that the stove performed reliably, and was very easy to use, on a 10 day backpacking trip

      Small and well-built

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I chose this stove over others because it had the combination of being small/lightweight and well constructed. While the cost was above some of the others, I didn't want to risk being out in the wild with a malfunctioning stove. It has met expectations on both fronts. It is solid but light and the valve adjustment provides excellent control of the flame. The small wind-blocks on the burner's surface have allowed me to start it in wind while still operating under low fuel pressure. I highly recommend this unit.

      The Perfect Backpacking Stove

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used this stove for 10 years now! I have pretty much nothing but good things to say. I've used it on countless backpacking trips and it has never failed me. Its is light, compact, and quick for boiling water. Its also simmers for more cooking options. I've used this thing at bas camp on Rainier and it has worked great. It does take a bit longer to boil at that altitude though. I would not recommend getting this stove for constant high altitudes. This thing is best for any standard backpacker that does not mind buying the iso fuel canisters. The only complaint, that is there for most micro stoves, is the pot stability on top. I've knocked a few pots off since the pots were not perfectly centered. Other than that, its amazing and at a crazy nice value!!

      Let me know if you have any questions on this stoves or any other backpacking gear!

      We have liftoff

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This stove may as well be a rocket engine. This puppy cranks. Have used this multiple times out in the bush and she gets real nice and hot. not to mention the pack-ability of this stove is next level. All said and done, in its case, this stove is about the size of a kiwi.

      If you are looking to go lightweight, this is the call. I have fed three people using this stove at no problem, you just have to be patient. And if you are going for longer durations and only bringing one stove, but have multiple people, you would want to have backup propane canisters.
