Pocket Rocket Stove: There are many stoves on the market. We chose this one because it folds up so small that we can fit the stove and a canister of gas inside a titanium pot. It weighs next to nothing and very reasonably priced. We have found that the Pocket Rocket Stove is somewhat unstable if not used on a level surface. The manufacturers suggested maximum cookware dimensions are 8 inches in diameter and 5 inches in height with a maximum weight of 8 lbs. This is greatly improved with the MSR Universal Canister Stand.

This ultralight compact stove weighs in at only 3 oz. It has a precision flame control and can boil a liter of water in between 3 to 5 minutes. The Pocket Rocket comes with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty and boast a 5 star rating.

Please follow the instruction manual for general safety information and precautions.

Don’t forget the matches!


MSR Fuel: In the interest of ultralight backpacking we use the MSR 4 oz. canister as a fuel source and a base for the Pocket Rocket. The MSR IsoPro is a performance – boosting, 80/20 blend of isobutene and propane. This blend delivers superior performance throughout the life of the canister and also has a 5 star rating.

MSR Universal Canister Stand: There have been a lot of discussions about how unstable the Pocket Rocket can be.  The Universal Canister Stand delivers added stability as well as safety when cooking with canister stoves and adapts to fit just about any fuel canister. It is ultra light with minimal weight and collapsible design with a super stable wide base. Weighing in at 1.2 ounces.
