The MSR Micro Rocket takes our Top Pick Award for being the lightest and smallest stove in this review. Lightweight backpackers who still want to carry a stove should consider this sub-three ounce model. We took this stove on a Grand Canyon Rim to Rim backpacking trip and thought it was the perfect addition to our kit. We also threw this stove in our truck as a back up stove for when we were car camping. The Micro Rocket has enough temperature control to be able to simmer more delicate meals, but can boil water in a flash. It is not ideal in windy conditions, and its fuel efficiency and stability will be significantly reduced with any breeze.
