Have your cake and eat it too.   rating
As a coffee drinker and a camper, this is my best buddy in the back country. Mornings wouldn't be the same if I wasn't able to have my coffee and the Pocket Rocket makes it happen by boiling water in less than 5 minutes. It's compact size, light weight and no maintenance make this a real winner that can cook your chicken dinner.

This is my go to stove.   rating
A campfire is my favorite but this is what I use when I can't or when I need hot water fast. It's SMALL, solid, easy and fast to set up, and it always works. Good dependable stove for forty bucks. The first year, camping on a sand bar, I knocked it over once so next year I added the MSR universal canister stand. Now it's good and solid no matter where it's set up. It's gone kayak camping several times now and never let me down.
