When the MSR pocket rocket first emerged on to the market, everyone was surprised at how much power could be generated by such a small unit. There are now a number of stoves out there with higher and more consistent outputs, but not that rival the pocket rocket in terms of price point. If we take for example the Soto Micro Regulator, arguably one of the most sleek, lightweight and consistent stoves out there, and compare it to the pocket rocket we see the following:

MSR: Output: 8,200 BTU, Weight: 86g, Price: from £24
Soto: Output: 11,000 BTU, Weight: 73g, Price: from £75

From the above data we can see the Soto is more powerful and lighter, but also £50 cheaper. On this basis I would possibly go for the MSR over the Soto, since for £50 the difference in power and weight it not a big deal for me.

With the above I was trying to illustrate that although the Pocket Rocket has been around a while it is still powerful, it's still light, and in terms of value for money it is unbeatable, at £25 the pocket rock is incredible value and provides a lightweight, powerful solution. It's not the lightest, nor the most powerful or efficient, but it's still an excellent unit and well worth looking into!
