Camping Must Have: MSR Pocket Rocket

The MSR Pocket Rocket...one Bad Mamma Jamma

The MSR Pocket Rocket is a great piece of kit. Whether you're backpacking, with the family, or out on a long walk about, this little bad boy will not let you down.  I pulled an MSR out of my bag after using it in Afghan back in '02 and the thing fired right up.  I bought this one (in the video) new at REI and took it with me on a recent camping trip to the Redwoods with my 5 year old son (the little guy was hiking like he was on SAS selection...wore me out).  The boil times were pretty spot on, and don't forget to get some flint!! It's a life saver.
