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 for backpacking
Likes: Built well, comes with it's own case.
One of the nice things I've noticed about the pocket rocket (vs. similar looking, but cheaper, options on Amazon), is that the top has little dividers which prevent wind from blowing out the flame.
- Pocket rocket 2
Likes: Easy to carry and use. Boils 2 cups of water in less three minutes
- Great imporvement over last Pocket Rocket
Likes: The Pocket Rocket 2 is more compact than the previous model. The pot supports fold down and make it more compact than the previous model. The stove can fit into most integrated cook systems (I use the GSI Soloist). I personally like that the stove flame can be adjusted so that you can simmer or use a low flame when sautéing food.
Dislikes: Some people complain about the loud noise the stove makes. Personally I do not mind the noise but be aware that it is loud; hence the name rocket
- MSR products are dependable. This item is not exception. Performs well in the back country and light weight for the journey.
Likes: Small; Light weight; Dependable and well built.
Dislikes: I like it all or else I would not have given it a 5 star rating. You will not go wrong with this product!
- Great backpacking stove
Likes: Small weight & size, but excellent power. Good quality construction. Ability to cook on multiple levels of heat
Dislikes: Have to fidget with the foldable potholder arms to get it to fit into the hardcase.
