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.

A last Look MSR Dyna-Lock Explore poles

MSR provided the MSR Dyna-lock Explore Backcountry Poles for review purposes.

In my last update of the MSR Dyna-lock poles I will dig deeper into the differences in using summer and winter baskets. I hope to show why the more you use these poles the better you may like them. I will explain the reasons that caused the annoying things that happened on the trail.
