Joshua C.wrote a review of MSR PocketRocket 2 Stove on June 20, 2019
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.
