    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.

    • MSR IsoProp fuel canister burns for up to 60 minutes
    • Boils 1 liter of water in 3.5 minutes for quick use
    • Precision flame control offers range of intensity

    Great for backpacking!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    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

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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!

    Perfect Little Stove

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Super straight forward and easy to use right out of the box. I love how simple it is and how little space it takes up in my pack!

    MSR PocketRocket 2 Stove

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

    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.

    Super Light and Packable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    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!

    The classic 2.0

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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. 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.
