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.

Reviewed by Michael C. - August 14, 2018

Reviewed by Beto - August 14, 2018

Likes: Lightweight and well built. Very compact and reliable

Dislikes: none

Origami designed stove - Very clever
Reviewed by Rick B. - August 13, 2018

Likes: I bought the MSR POCKETROCKET about six years ago and now needed a second one. My first one still works perfectly in every aspect. I thought the first one was cleverly designed, but the MSR POCKETROCKET 2 is even more ingenious. It's a great little stove (and puzzle folding it).

Dislikes: None.

Extremely Lightweight and Impressively Reliable
Reviewed by Craig - August 9, 2018

Likes: - Extremely lightweight
- Built very solid out of beautifully milled aluminum
- Efficient and powerful (a small gas canister is more than plenty to cook/boil water for 2 people for a 3 day trip)
- Works great even in windy or humid conditions

Dislikes: Honestly, I can't think of anything that I dislike about the pocket rocket.

Super compact and durable
Reviewed by Joseph T. - August 6, 2018

Likes: - Feels very solid, not flimsy at all.
- Very light.

Dislikes: - The case is a bit bigger than it needs to be, could compact a bit more.

What's not to love
Reviewed by Jacob V. - July 31, 2018

Likes: Solid design, all parts feel sturdy, nothing is loose or wiggles. Packs up small and produces heat.

Dislikes: None

Have yet to find better
Reviewed by JT - July 27, 2018

Likes: Small, not very expensive, *light*, and consistently works if you have a spark. Never leave home without it!

Dislikes: I'm finding that unlike the original version, this version releases gas from the canister upon screwing or unscrewing, for about 1-2 seconds.
