MSR Fuel Bottle for Camping Stoves
The Long Haul
I've been using a Whisperlite for over twenty years, have had it out for week-long+ trips and has required very little maintenance (easy in the field). I also own a Dragonfly, but honestly the Whisperlite is the go-to stove. Its simple and has two settings, afterburner and off. But when on the trail I'm not babying a red wine reduction or balancing out my hollandaise; its generally simple food. What is important is reliablility and simplicity. I'm not a fan of having multiple parts flopping around, and it isn't the greatest thing to pack, but if you're at altitude, or on a winter trip,... visualize how bad it would suck if your stove were to fail. Oh yeah,... and I'm not sure you can actually break those aluminum bottles,... I've tried. The weak link is the pump. But if you put it in the bottle and leave it there, it will be well protected and you shouldn't ever have a problem.

Bulletproof fuel bottles
I have the 11 oz and 20 oz bottles for my MSR WhisperLite. They are very well made and resist denting and punctures. The cap is great too and I haven't had any leaks, but I still try to keep them upright in my pack.

Gotta have it
If you have an MSR stove, gotta have at least one. I found with my Whisperlite Int. its a super fuel sipper. The 11oz works just fine for myself for a week and still have fuel left over. I used it just for simple cooking. Great bottles though, hold up well to being dropped ect.

Its a fuel bottle, Holds Fuel.
Bought it with my Dragonfly stove. and have the 11oz and 20oz and they are great sizes.
11oz is 2-3 day trip for 2.
20oz is 3-4 day trip for two with extravegant cooking, or 2-4 days for 4 people.
Wish the stove pump was a bit more robust so i didnt feel like i need to bring the pump and fuel canister cap seperately.
