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.
