MSR have redesigned the Pocket Rocket to be an even lighter stove that still has a great power output. Wide pot supports make it suitable for almost any size backpacking pots and pans. 

MSR says:

The next-generation PocketRocket™ 2 stove takes everything impressive about the iconic original and puts it into an even smaller and lighter high-performance design.

Barely noticeable in your pack, it’s fast at camp, boiling 1 liter of water in 3.5 minutes. Precision flame control goes from torch to simmer, while our WindClip™ windshield boosts efficiency in breezy conditions. New folding pot supports create an exceptionally tiny packed size, and they now accommodate a wider range of vessels—pair this stove with the MSR Titan™ Kettle for the ultimate fast and light kit.

The ever popular Pocket Rocket gets a lightweight makeover. MSR have combined everything that was great about the Micro Rocket stove and everything that was great about the Pocket Rocket into one stove. It's a simple stove that is practically bomb-proof, so you won't have any issues with it.

The Pocket Rocket 2 has been made lighter due to the redesigned pot supports. These still provide a wide surface for bigger pans and they still feature those serrated edges that keep your pot in place. The cross section over the burner head provides some extra protection against the wind, this will stop a sudden gust from blowing the flame out completely and it works well.

The Pocket Rocket 2 is an ideal stove for quick water boiling, in a lightweight and affordable package.

Great Little stove for the ultralight

If you're looking for the ultralight backpacking stove that takes up little-to-no room in your rucksack this might just be the stove for you. With a pack size small enough to fit in your pocket and weighing a measly 73g this little stove might just tick all the boxes for the weight conscious cooking connoisseur. This is a vast improvement on the Pocket Rocket. It's a culmination of the MSR Micro Rocket and the very popular, tried and tested Pocket Rocket. The boil time of the stove is very impressive indeed especially compared with rival stoves of a higher price range. With next to zero wind conditions the stove can easily boil a litre of water in around 4 minutes. The biggest weakness of the Pocket Rocket 2 is the wind. Unlike the MSR Windburner or the Jetboil stoves with their integrated windbreakers the Pocket Rocket 2 really struggles in the wind. Winds of around 10-15mph effect the boil time drastically to aprox 6-10 minute boil time for a litre of water which still isn’t bad, but not terribly great either. The wind didn’t blow out the flame because of the small cross shaped wind clip but did slow the boil time down. Another mark against the Pocket Rocket 2 is the not so great fuel economy. In perfect conditions the stove uses about 15g of gas to boil a litre of water and in windy conditions used about 30-40g, meaning if you're planning to go on a long multi day trek be prepared to take a few gas canisters with you if less than perfect camping/trekking conditions are forecast. That being said, the MSR Pocket Rocket is very robust indeed. I've been using the stove for about 3 years now and it is present on most of my wild camping trips. It's been very reliable, just what you’d expect from an MSR product. The swiveling pot supports are surprisingly strong and fold away nicely to give a very streamlined look to the stove once packed away. The simmer control fares well also and I was able to cook decent meals such as porridge and rice without the food sticking to my cook pots. The stove is excellent value for money and easy to use even when wearing thick gloves. The price alone makes this a must buy for backpackers looking for an ultralight stove. Only draw back being its performance in wind.

My first camping stove

It's my first camping stove ever. I went for a super light and small piece, as I use it when I go trekking. At first I had to get used to the way it folds - in correct order, but then it's super quick and easy. I like that it fits inside my titanium pot with the small fuel canister too.
