MSR Pocket Rocket 2 Review: The Ultimate Backpacking Stove
What is our final score for the MSR Pocket Rocket 2? We give it a rating of 4.5 out 5 stars! Where ever your backpacking journey takes you, be sure to pack your MSR Pocket Rocket 2 stove.What are your thoughts?

Efficient fuel burn
I am more concerned with fuel burn vs time to boil (which seems the most commonly mentioned statistic of stoves). I did up a little experiment today on how to adjust the valve (flame) for more efficient fuel use. I put my findings on my domain, but am not sure if amazon allows links or not. I'll try...

MSR Pocket Rocket 2 Ultralight Backpacking Stove Review
The Pocket Rocket 2 is one of those pieces of gear that's simple, effective, and doesn't try to be more than what it is. There's really nothing fancy about it unless you compare it to the original Pocket Rocket Version 1, which is a great stove, but next to my version, it looks like an old clunker. So there you have it folks
