Weighing a mere 2.6 ounces, the compact MSR MicroRocket canister stove cranks out surprising heat while taking up little space in your backpack. Despite its streamlined dimensions, the MicroRocket boils a liter of water in just 3.5 minutes.

The MicroRocket folds up into its own hard case and is small enough to fit inside a mug. The burner comes equipped with a WindClip wind shield that helps to maintain performance even in light winds. Serrated pot supports provide surprising stability and a glove-friendly flame control allows easy adjustment. An integrated Piezo auto-igniter allows you to turn on the stove without matches or a lighter.

Each MSR MicroRocket includes a storage case and instructions. NOTE: MSR IsoPro fuel canisters are not included.

  • No need for priming, pressurizing or maintenance

Dislikes: none

Why did I wait this long?

Likes: This is an amazing stove. No joke, I was previously using a Coleman single burner propane stove that weighed 1 lb 6 oz, which was 8X heavier and much bulkier. This MSR stove output is infinitely more adjustable, and it can burn at an extremely low output rate.

Dislikes: The stove has to be folded just right to fully fit in the included container with the igniter. With some practice it will be a non-issue. The weight of the container and igniter (1.7 oz combined) is almost as much as the stove (2.6 oz).

Likes: Great little stove boil a cup of water in about a min. Not at full crank either. Fuel consumption is not bad either still have fuel left in an 8oz can. Buddy had an 8oz can and an msr stove with a flux ring boiled water in 30 seconds but pretty much drained an 8oz can in one use. He was not at full burn either.

Dislikes: Be careful when you light this thing you might not have it at full blast when you ignited it but the initial flame shoots kind of high of the stove (not call a rocket for nothing). In short don't stoop over it while lighting could burn any loose clothing like a scarf, handkerchief or you beard.

Likes: Good flame control from simmer to boil, compact and light

Likes: Didn't think the pocket rocket could get better but theyve done it. Wouldnt justify paying $20 more but I got it at nearly the same price as the pocket rocket. It looks more modern, folds up better. Dont let its tiny size and weight fool you, this thing can compete with most other stoves I've used and is easier to carry, cheaper and seems pretty durable. I use it with MSR isopro fuel, and my GSR Halulute cooking set. Brings a liter of water to boil in under 5 minutes. Worked fine in 35 degree temps and 10-15 mph winds.

Dislikes: The arms can be a little tricky to fold correctly sometimes. May not work as well in colder temps or higher winds because it is not sheilded off like other stoves.

Likes: Light, well made, heats up quickly.

Dislikes: The case is way too heavy and the separate lighter is begging to be lost.

Likes: It is small and kicks butt when it comes to boiling water quickly. Most of all,,,, its cute !!!

Dislikes: This stove is fragel, When done, always unscrew from canister and put back in case, I broke a arm by not doing so but Backcountry Edge made me a happy camper. If your clumsy and lazy like me, go with the Super-Fly stove that can handle more abuse then the Micro-Rocket. However, the Micro-Rocket is much better looking and alot smaller.
