/ MRS Micro rocket or pocket rocket???
Ive got a pocket rocket. Perfectly adequate all year Round, and with a Primus plastic gas cannister Stand, very stable. A bit Wobbly without one.
I'd go with that too. Pocket rocket but I'd spend a few pounds extra on the MSR canister stand - really good, much better and more versatile than the plastic ones.
If its windy, i find a Free, weighs next to nothing, windshield along these Lines helps with my pocket rocket.
Pocket rocket is good but not very stable. I make it more secure with a cable tie around the canister and a couple of tent pegs through this into the ground.
I think the Rockets now have a competitor...Alpkit Kraku. First try out tonight...
They have had for ages: http://www.fieldandtrek.com/camping/cooking/camping-stoves
Both rockets are on sale and, importantly, in stock at the above.
Point taken about 'in stock'! First batch of Krakus have all gone...yesterday
I've Used Both not really much in it, Newer Micro Rocket is a little Neater and I think slightly more efficient with the burner closer to the pots, Another Great wee Burner is the Optimus Crux u can pick one up for £25 on eBay easily
In fairness to Alpkit I should mention that it looks like the unavailability of the Kraku was due to a website glitch. They appear to be available now.
