    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.

    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.

        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!
