    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.

    Hot Meals Anywhere

      I love this little stove. I’ve only had it month but found incredibly handy and uplifting to have hot meals on my last few excursions without all the weight I used to carry for cooking. It boils water super quickly and handled some gnarly wind and snow without much of a wind block.


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      it's unbelievable how powerful this little Pocket Rocket it. It boils water very quickly and is super light/ compact. It's a great tool to have in the backcountry if you are camping at low elevation when you don't need a multi fuel stove.

      Fantastic Stove

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Surprisingly great. Probably your best bet for price if you're looking for something lightweight and reliable. Pretty quick to get going and does the job right. Seemingly durable. Haven't had any issues with this at all.

      Compact and reliable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This little stove packs down smaller then most camp stoves (about 1 1/2 in wide by 3 1/2 inches tall). The stove comes with a hard shell case that is a triangle tube shape and has enough extra internal space for a small lighter or matches. The set up is pretty simple, just screw it on to the fuel and fold it open. The one downside is that it doesn't have a wind block, so sometimes I have to be a little crafty when lighting it initially. I keep it in my car for road trip coffee and it's my go to for a light backpacking stove.

      So Convenient!

        The stove itself weighs nothing, and it’s so packable, that I can store a mini lighter in the little box along with the stove. Not only this, but it’s really powerful. It doesn’t boil water quite as fast as a Jetboil, but it’s still a great (and cheaper)alternative for anyone looking to save a huge chunk of weight for faster longer expeditions!

        Compact and light

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I have purchased and used several backpack stoves over many years of backpacking the High Sierra and Uinta Mountains. I would have to say that I have generally been pleased with the function and use of each stove but have been disappointed in the weight and amount of space required to carry these stoves and fuel. When I saw the Pocket Rocket 2, I saw an answer to the size and weight problem. The question would be the function. I purchased one and tried it out on may last backpacking trip. The stove was amazing and one small canister of fuel held out for the three full days I was in the back country. The stove did very well in windy conditions, It was easy to use and set up and then put away. I absolutely loved this stove and will be putting the others away, It is so compact and light you can easily find a place for it in your backpack. A very good product. Highly recommend!

        Simply the best

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        As far as lightweight, simple camp stoves go, this is by far the best out there. Super solid, easy to maintain, and very reliable. The new redesign makes it even more reliable and awesome. This little stove will be with me on any trip i go on!

        A rocket indeed

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

        For the past several years I have been using the MSR Windburner for backpacking. It's a great stove, but I was looking for something that would be better for group cooking, so I got this and boy does it perform. Heats water very fast, works in wind (although a noticeably slower boil speed), is tiny and lightweight, and has decent simmer adjustability. For the price I don't think you could possibly get a better stove, although I still love my Windburner for solo or duo trips, this rocket is perfect for those larger group trips.


          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.
