Product Description

Product Description

The PocketRocket backpacking stove provides full cooking function in an incredibly efficient form. Barely noticeable in your pack, it delivers impressively in camp. Precision flame control goes from torch to simmer while our Wind Clip wind shield boosts efficiency in breezy conditions. The PocketRocket stove's diminutive size is also the foundation of a solid emergency kit for home or trail.

Pack light, but carry a powerful stove with the palm-sized MSR 11792 Pocket Rocket, which weighs just 3 ounces and measures 4 by 4 by 2 inches. It offers fast and simple lighting, with no need for priming, pressurizing or maintenance, and it will boil a liter of water in under 3.5 minutes. The glove-friendly controls allow precise flame adjustment and stability, while the micro-burner, tri-sectional Windclip Windshield clip protects flame in light wind gusts. It uses clean burning MSR IsoPro premium fuel.

Stove Tips:

  • MSR recommends 4 oz. (114ml) of liquid fuel per person per day for cooking or 8 oz. (237ml) of liquid fuel per person per day for melting snow and cooking.
  • At high altitude, MSR stoves may burn "rich," which hinders vaporization. Reducing fuel bottle pressure and opening up the windscreen can offset this.
  • MSR's stoves burn best when the fuel bottle is pressurized to 15-25 psi (1034-1724 mb). That's equivalent to about 20 pump strokes for a full 22-ounce MSR fuel bottle. As the fuel burns, the air space in bottle grows larger, and pressure decreases. You'll have to pump more to maintain the same pressure.

I'm a gear freak. I own 3 Whisperlites (2 I got cheap), a Jetboil (gift) and a Pocket Rocket (from REI around 2005 I think). I have several other odd stoves too. While they all had their place their niche use has been squeezed out by the excellent Pocket Rocket.

I've always been a fan of MSR Whisperlite stoves and have used them for 20 years. About 5 years ago I considered a canister type stove as white gas stoves have the downside of the fuel smell and the extra time to pump and warm/prime the stove. I wanted a more convenient lightweight stove I could use on day hikes, fishing/hunting trips and to make a quick cuppa on chilly rock climbing days. After some research, I found the MSR Pocket Rocket was the lightest and most powerful stove of it's type. It was also less than $35 so cheaper than it's competition. It was easily the best at that time, and might still be.

I have used mine almost every weekend for years, in every season, on day trips and on several multi day trips and now always take it as an emergency stove with a titanium pot, when I venture into the wild, even in winter. Together with a lightweight pole-less 2 man bothy shelter I have all the gear I need to survive a night out in relative comfort at the weight of about a liter of water. When it's that cold I keep the canister in a warm jacket pocket but it has boiled water successfully at 12,000 feet in February, in Colorado. The speed of deployment and fast boil times even in harsh environments mean my Whisperlite gets little use these days.

There are low star reviews of it being unstable. I have never found this to be the case with the larger canister.

MSR's Pocket Rocket is a great little cooker. Best for going light and fast. Perfect as a shared stove among two people, and even better for simple boiling or melting snow for drinking water. I would suggest this stove for use with a maximum pot capacity of two liters, more than this and it becomes a little unstable.

If your menu is simple and you live on instant meals that require only boiling water this is the stove for you. Because this is a stove designed for the minimalist, it is tiny and has a very concentrated hot spot, so if you are a backcountry gourmet and want to cook pancakes and eggs you might be better off with a stove that has a larger flame spread. Again, great for boiling water and melting snow, but not for actual cooking.

This is a great bit of kit, I have used it for the last 3 years and it just keeps on going. One word sums it up, simplicity. It has very few moving parts which means not much can go wrong. I have drowned this stove in near freezing water and had a hot brew on before my fingers were dry.
I advise people to think long and hard about the electric start models, just something else to go wrong when it's -4 and raining...
The compactness comes at a cost, as was mentioned by one of the other reviewers, the three supports can make it a bit difficult to balance stuff on but a small price for the benefit of its size.
As a side note, I've found that the MSR brand cylinders tend to last lightly longer than other brands.

The MSR Pocket Rocket is perfect when you're working off of a simple menu. I boil water each day for both dehydrated meals and instant coffee. For that purpose, you won't find a more compact, simple, and reliable stove. I opted to get the MSR Universal Canister Stand to offer a little more stability for the base. The unit demands a bit of care and balance as it is, so the tripod leg support is helpful. Paired it up with a Snowpeak Trek 700 Titanium. The cookware balances across the micro-burner. It is not secured in place, but rather rests against notches. Herein lies the strength and weakness of the unit. It's simple. That means it is incredibly easy to set up, use, and pack up. But it also means there are no bells and whistles. Your setup will probably be a small unsecured pot or cup balancing over a strong flame. If you or a friend inadvertently bump it, you will most likely be spilling your boiling water or hot food on the ground (or yourself). I'm very happy with the stove. For my needs, it's great. I'm careful with it, and make sure my friends know where I have it set up when I'm cooking. Haven't had a spill yet, though my brother has. If you don't have simple tastes on the trail, or you're prone to accidents and spills, this might not be the best fit. Included some photos of my setup for a visual.

This stove is probably one of the easiest to operate, very basic yet has the ability to control the flame-temp. The stove is small and compact therefore making it almost the perfect choice for backpackers looking to keep weight down. I generally prefer white gas model stoves due to the fact for me the fuel is MUCH easier to find than the fuel canisters this model uses and cheaper too, BUT i perfer taking this stove along if Im not planning on staying long or cooking alot of food because i find it a tad easier just to throw this in a pack with a canister of fuel and hit the road. No worries about the possibility of spilling gas all over your stuff from a fuel bottle, ive never had a fuel canister leak. The downside of this stove is being tippy when you place a pan on top therefore having to make sure you place the stove on a level surface. Of course in the great outdoors things are rarely perfectly level so gotta be careful it doesnt tip over spilling hot liquid all over you! Another red checkmark against this stove is COLD weather, if you plan on taking this out in 20f degree weather or colder you may have to place the fuel canister inside your coat to help kinda warm it up. I've tested this stove out in -8f temp and it failed with a weak flame, i ended up building a fire instead. Also this stove doesnt perform as well as my dragonfly on windy days so you may have to rig a windbreak to keep the flame going. Other than those things i would recommend this stove to folks that dont want to spend alot for the stove itself and dont want to fiddle with white gas stoves...These stoves are pretty much idiot proof.
