Moriah Williamswrote a review of MSR Pocket Rocket Stove on February 29, 2016
People say you can spend many an hour reflecting on the facts and fictions of life whilst hiking mile after mile on a trail, whether through the wooded wonders of the forest or up the sides of a rugged, booming mountain top. Having hiked many a mile myself, I really thought that with this amount of reflection I had a chance at being the next Thoreau, Walden, or Dillard. However, the fact of my life is, all I really think about when hiking is what, when, and where my next meal will be. And thank the heavens above for the invention of this little devil, the PocketRocket. I absolute trust and adore the efficiency, reliability, and versatility of this stove. Not only is it super lightweight, this thing has water boiling in a matter of minutes. Who knew a little gadget could be so dangerously impressive? I’ve cooked lightweight backpacker meals and fired up some gourmet meat and potatoes in a pot over this little flame. Although there is not much of a simmer on this baby, and it doesn’t do great in super cold temperatures, it is my go-to stove the rest of the time.
