Review: MSR Pocket Rocket Backpacking Stove

This weekend on our backcountry trip, I had the chance to use a MSR Pocket Rocket Backpacking Stove. I was a little sceptical that it would be able to perform up to my expectations. Boy was I wrong!

What the little stove lacks in size and weight it makes up for in efficiency  and user friendliness.

This little stove, weighing in at mere 3 ounces it really worked well. It was able to boil 30oz. of water in 4 minutes at 11000’ of elevation. I was able to turn it down to a low simmer while I was finishing up my cowboy coffee. Also it was extremely quite and easy to start. Even though it lacks the size of some of the
other stoves on the market, I was very pleased with its performance and will
continue to use it.
