Rated 4 out of 5 by Findmeoutside Pretty good!
I have owned my Pocket rocket for about 4 years now and it has gone everywhere with me. From the barrier islands of Georgia to the mountains of New Mexico.
Its easy to light, fast to bowl, high quality, and is extremely light!
I can only find two faults with the PR. First is stability. If you plan on using it with large pot, try another stove. The second is that it can only burn the isobutane that MSR sells, and if you out in the backcountry their isnt exactly a trading post around very corner.
If you plan use the PR in well populated areas, solo or double hiking, or plan on stocking up on fuel, it perfect for you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by bigrock Good but wind sensitive.
I have this and I have also had a similar unit made by Bruntun. This units work great, are tiny, fuel efficient but have similar issue. When there is a lot of wind the heat output drops rapidly. You really need to use a wind screen when there is high wind or it might not cook much. When wind is reasonable it is quite quick. This seems to be a common problem with all these microstoves that is only addressed by products like the JetBoil

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassmacker Best Stove Out There
The Pocket Rocket is an awesome stove. I have used it on all my backpacking camping trips, and it works great. It burns very hot for such a small stove, and can cook and boil things quickly. It is easy to start, and I am glad that it has a built in sparker, so I don't have to use matches or a lighter to start it. I have never had any problems starting it, and its extremely light, I can't even feel it in my pack.
