MSR Whisperlite International multi-fuel stove review


I have had good experiences with the MSR Whisperlite stove, both great times in the outdoors and good food. On both an 8 day walk in the Tasmanian Western Arthurs and on snow camping trips,this stove has proved its worth.Being powerful and quick boiling, fuel weight is minimised on long trips. As the name suggests, the Whisperlite is a fair bit quiter than than some other multi-fuel stoves. The light and simple windshield allows this stove to work well even in windy conditions, and the low profile ensures stability: you don't want to lose your dinner just as it is cooked to perfection!

MSR Pocket Rocket stove review


The MSR Pocket Rocket is a small light weight (85 grams) camping stove which has helped simplify and lighten my cooking setup. The stove works by threading it onto a gas canister, which are available in three different sizes to cater for long and short hikes. Canisters can be recycled using a Crunch-It tool which are also available at The Wilderness Shop. I’ve had my Pocket Rocket for five years and it has started first go every time during that period. The stove comes with a red storage case which makes it easy to find when rummaging around at the bottom of your pack. The range of flame adjustment is from a very slow simmer to a raging boil with similar ease of control to a stove top gas burner at home. Above the snowline I have found the Pocket Rocket’s performance to be the match to liquid fuel stoves when it comes to melting snow.
