Article Summary:The MSR PocketRocket is a simple, lightweight, and inexpensive stove. It puts out a tight flame that boils water and melts snow quickly, and its Windclip Windshield feature helps it perform well in light wind. The PocketRocket is one of the better performers in our review sample in windy conditions, especially with an external windscreen. Its relatively small flame pattern keeps it from being among the best for frying or baking. A pop out wire flame adjuster precisely adjusts from torch to simmer. The stove body has a stout construction of steel and aluminum, but pot supports are relatively flexible and don't stand up to abuse. Its low price of $39.95, strong performance, and light weight (3.1 ounces/87grams) make the PocketRocket a favorite for those on a budget.
