Normally, it's Esbit, alcohol or no-cook, but for an upcoming group trip, I'm going to need to get a canister stove for boiling water and maybe a little simmering. (I gave away my white gas stoves years ago.) Since I'll likely only use this occasionally, I don't necessarily need the lightest or the best, just something that'll be reasonable.
I'm inclined to go with the MSR Pocket Rocket. Does that make sense? Alternatives I should consider? Details, if relevant: short, 2-3 nighter, temps not likely below freezing.
