I have thoroughly enjoyed testing the MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe stove kit. I guess no stove is perfect but this one comes really close. If only it would clean up the dishes after cooking… Seriously though, this stove is a winner! You can click here to read my thoughts as I conclude my testing of the stove and included cook set.
The Pocket Rocket Deluxe stove kit has worked great during my limited testing so far. I’ll outline my use on a recent day hike. Short story, it worked great, long version…click here and scroll down to the updated section
As an avid lightweight backpacker (my pack but not me personally…) I am always on the lookout for gear that will not weigh me down. A good cook set and stove are very important items that I rely on for not only hot meals, but for coffee and or hot cocoa during meals as well as other times on the trail. The MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe is an upgrade of the Pocket Rocket 2 which was an upgrade for the original Pocket Rocket. I have used my original Pocket Rocket for many years and it has always been a reliable performer but I am excited too see how the Pocket Rocket Deluxe and Trail Mini Duo cook set perform.
