With a weight of only 2.6 ounces, a compact design, and a high heat output, the MSR PocketRocket 2 canister stove is a favorite of backpackers and thru-hikers.
The sturdy, efficient burner is capable of boiling water in as little as 3.5 minutes. An integrated control bar adjusts the flame from simmer to boil with ease. Serrated pot supports accommodate a broad range of cook pots (sold separately) and fold down to allow the stove to store conveniently in the included hard-sided case.
NOTE: The stove requires an MSR IsoPro fuel canister which is not included and is not available for purchase online.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great backpacking stove
Able to simmer
- Awesome little stove
Likes: Super light, stowable, reliable, and powerful
- Light, compact, and fast working
Likes: Bought for lightness but also works fast. Used with Sea to Summit collapsible pot and worked great.
- A Jewel Of A Stove
Likes: Well constructed and it works just as advertised. The PocketRocket 2 heats water to a boil very quickly but also adjusts easily to simmer. My GSI Ketalist kettle is stable whilst on it and afterwards the folded stove is packed away in the kettle with the rest of the Ketalist cook set (it fits in there even in its own case if you wish).
Dislikes: There are some reviews that mention negatively this stove as being loud. I have an aeronautics background but didn't need that to realize that anything with the word "Rocket" in the name may have some elevated decibels connected to it. But seriously, the sound is not that loud at all. Get your cooking done by "hiker midnight" and you won't bother anyone... Except maybe the folks who wrote those negative reviews.

- MSR POCKETROCKET 2
Likes: Very compact, lightweight and extremely easy to use. perfect for what I need. Compact, durable, and efficient
- Dont settle for the knockoffs
- Switch from Jetboil Flash to PR2
Likes: Finally took the plunge from my 6 yr old Jetboil Flash to the Pocket Rocket 2 and a pot. So far the stove has been great, can boil water fast, but also can fine tune the flame down to cook in my pot. My old Flash was on or off. Pot arms are wide enough to hold my 750ml pot and didn't feel unstable. Stove, fuel and striker fits in my pot. Doesn't have an ignition like my Flash stove but this was overcomes with a MSR striker that lights the stove easily.
Dislikes: Only one would be no igniter but I knew this when I bought the stove. So no real dislikes.
