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.

more bombproof kit from msr
ever the tinkerer, thought I'd try out a Vargo BOT (c'mon BC--stock it) with a butane stove and this little unit ticked all the boxes for the heat source. I can get this, lighter, canister, 'legs' (pinched off my jetboil) etc all in the BOT. But--I may as well take my jetboil as it would function the same and size is about the same. Beauty of the BOT, is you can store (sealed) 1L of water in there on the trail and then cook in it and eat of out it (its a Ti pot with a sealing, screw top lid afterall). I have the Honaker bag from Bedrocks which holds the BOT (with water) and the fuel can/legs on top inside the bag and mounts on the bike (I put it on the downtube of the frame). The little carry case for this stove fits just about anywhere--for me, for now--pushed into the nose of my framepack. I expect years of use to come.

Good Little Stove!
Folds up nice. Boils water & heats food quick. Survived daily use on the Allagash & several multi day hikes. I usually light mine with a ferro rod that I nest with it & an 8oz fuel tank in a Toaks 1100ml pot. Comparing it to a buddy’s deluxe version, I think I would buy the deluxe version if starting over (more powerful & has igniter built in). If you are ultra light this model may be for you.

What a perfect stove for backpacking!
There is nothing like s'mores to watch the sunset at the living room hike above red butte gardens or scrambled eggs up on top of mount olympus. The MSR Pocket Rocket works great. I wish it still came with the piezo ignitor... Get a titanium cup to go with it.

Great for backpacking!
I've been using the MSR Pocket Rocket for most backpacking trips. It boils water quickly and efficiently and is reliable, even in bad weather/cold conditions. I like to use the MSR mugmate in conjuction with this stove because I like a hot cup of coffee in the morning. Check out my video on the stove in action to boil water and make coffee.

Great Backpacking Stove!
I bought the MSR Pocket Rocket 2 about two years ago. I really like how compact this stove is. I've used it in alpine conditions, windy conditions, wet/stormy conditions and in temps way below freezing with great success. It boils water really fast, 1 cup in about 45 seconds and 1 liter in 3.5minutes. The stove is fuel efficient, lightweight and easy to use! It fits perfect into my pack! I would not go backpacking without this stove!

Small & Light, medium performance
Well-made, lightweight, compact. Compared to some other stoves, it doesn't boil the fastest but that's in comparison to stoves with bigger burners. Great for what it is.

Great Design & Simmer Performance
I have had a Jetboil zip for many years and have recently become frustrated with its "full blast only" operation, as I've been trying to up my camp cooking game. I needed something that could pack down at least a small and have reliable burner modulation for simmering. I originally wanted to get one of the very cheap pocket rocket (1) knock offs or similar from ebay/amazon, but they did not pack nearly as small or could not simmer like I wanted. So far the PR2 performs great, at least as powerful and fast-boiling as the jetboil (using jetboil pot) with smooth and steady low simmer adjustability. Still a solid value when bought on sale, considering the build quality, performance, and reputation for reliability.

Great stove in a small package
Very dependable stove in a miniscule size. More stable than you would think. Great size for coffee pot or 8 - 9 " pans. Lots of bang for your buck!

Bought this for my son in law, he said he uses this when he does solo backpacking trips because it is so lightweight. He said that you can't go wrong for the price.

MSR PocketRocket 2 Stove
This stove is amazing, so incredibly lightweight and efficient, perfect for backpacking, when we want a fast hot meal at the beginning and at the end of the day, without the use of a camp fire for cooking. So easy to use.

Great Backpacking Stove
I love this little stove! Works great for fast and light missions. It's tiny and won't break the bank.

Super Light and Packable
Have used this stove many times for camping/climbing trips. Very light and packable. Heats water/whiskey cider super quickly and pretty decent for cooking too. Only downside is it heats the bottom of your pan a little to centrally, not great at heat distribution. Still makes a mean egg sandwich in the backcountry though!

Super light, solid construction, and fast boil time. Boiling about a quart of water took like 4 minutes In 17 degrees Fahrenheit.

Very Compact Stove!
The Pocketrocket 2 is super compact for its capabilities. Solid constructions and high heat output make it perfect for backcountry camping.

Preferred over other brands out there for it's reliability when you're deep in the woods and need to cook.

The classic 2.0
Easy to use, lightweight stove, what more could you want? I bought the MSR Handheld Piezo Igniter to go with this, makes it much more convenient than using matches or worrying about a lighter not working. I have been able to carry this onto an airplane too, TSA did double over it, but after realizing that there was no fuel or ignition on it, they let it through!

Hot Meals Anywhere
I love this little stove. Iâve 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.

Does the pocket rocket come with fuel?
