MSR PocketRocket Deluxe - Backpacker

MSR PocketRocket Deluxe

Ultralight stove

OUR TAKE The original PocketRocket is a lightweight classic, and now MSR is giving it a major makeover with the Deluxe. A bigger burner with protective walls increases wind resistance, a new pressure regulator boosts efficiency, and an added piezo igniter is internally routed to protect it from damage. (And the whole thing is only .3 ounce heavier.) Tradeoff: As always, the piezo is finicky in rain. Bring a lighter.

TRAIL CRED “Even though it’s the size of a kiwi, this stove is fast,” our tester says.“It boiled 1 liter of water in 4 minutes in cold, wet weather near Mt. Baker in Washington.”
