The next-generation MSR Pocket Rocket 2 stove has improved on several features of the original version, making it smaller and lighter for quick and easy backcountry cooking. This tiny, ultralight stove is a favorite among backpackers and climbers. Weighing only 2.6 ounces (73g) and measuring only 3 inches long and 1.5 inches wide when folded up, the Pocket Rocket 2 easily packs into a small pot or other area.
The MSR Pocket Rocket 2 stove is extremely easy to use. The flame intensity can be easily adjusted from a rolling boil to simmer. Its ability to boil water in 3.5 minutes is convenient after a long day on the trail or when stopping for a quick lunch. In breezy conditions, the WindClip windscreen on the burner head helps prevent flame blow out by dividing the burner surface into three areas. This helps keep the stove lit if the wind blows out the flame on one of the areas, minimizing fuel waste. This stove is compatible with most self-sealing fuel canisters.
The MSR Pocket Rockets 2’s newly-designed pot supports accommodate a wide range of pot sizes. The serrated pot supports help prevent the pot from shifting when you are cooking. When you are finished using the stove, the compact design allows you to fold down the supports against the body of the stove, making it exceptionally small to save you valuable space in your backpack. The stove also comes with a handy, ultralight, hard-shell carrying case. The price for this great piece of ultralight gear is around $45. See here.
