The MSR PocketRocket is definitely a go to if you have to pack a bit lighter than the JetBoil, although I can’t say that I prefer one over the other. They both are very efficient and use the same type of fuel. The only difference that I can truly see is the PocketRocket has an adjustable flame that’s a little easier to judge while cooking, but with the PocketRocket you have to pack a pan with you. Either way you go, the PocketRocket and Jetboil are two amazing options that I’d highly recommend. Even better, the PocketRocket comes with all the accessories that you need (aside from fuel).
