If you want to boil water or cook quickly this Pocket Rocket 2 Mini Stove Kit is just what you need. The thing is like a mini jet engine so it’s not bad in mild winds. On full blast the noise it makes quickly gets the attention of other campers for better or worse. Previously to this I owned the wind burner which is excellent too however it didn’t have an adjustable regulator, which meant it was pretty much only good for boiling water very quickly in dodgy weather.

It’s super portable so if you are trying to cut down on weight it is ideal and compact, all the components fit inside each other, and with the fast boil time of 1 lire of water in just 3.5 minutes if you fancy a cup of tea its a speedy solution, no pun intended.

Weight wise this whole kit is impressive as all together it only weighs an impressive 278g which you’ll barely notice carrying. If you decide to just take the stove part with you this only weighs 73g!

The kit includes an anodised 0.75l cooking pot with insulated rubber external grip around the middle so you can hold and eat out of it (great idea guys) as well as drainage holes in the lid to drain pasta with, and a coffee cup sipping hole for the you make a hot drink in the pot. There is also a pot grip to lift the pot when it is very hot. Additionally there is an extra external bowl which can be used for measuring, however this is a feature I’ve experienced on the windburner and despite how useful it is to have another bowl / measuring device this bowl is intended to pack by being placed on the booting of the cooking pot, and it frequently gets jammed onto the bottom of the cooking pot and can be a real pain to remove.

The Verdict: 9/10

I a huge fan of MSR gear anyway, and I have to say this little stove kit has been great to use and more than done the job. The only niggle really for me is the external pot, I just find the way it jams on really annoying. And for that reason I’ll be awarding them a 9/10. I can see myself using this awesome little bit of kit for years to come!
