Rated5out of5bysteved8fromGreat Stove - Love It!We use this stove for car camping. It fits inside our REI medium camping pots with room to spare, but not enough for a medium size fuel can as well. Temperature control is awesome. I have only had minor trouble with wind so far, and using the included windscreen fixed all problems. I originally bought this to replace a 2 burner camp stove and I wish I had done this sooner. It has more power and better heat control than my old stove. I have used it for boiling water, omelettes, scrambled eggs, gravy, biscuits, mac & cheese, etc. If it was a little smaller it would be great for backpacking. I will take this stove backpacking if there are several people in the group, but if alone I would take a water boiling stove only.

Rated5out of5byBLYinAHfromMSR WindPro IIThis is a great stove. No muss, no fuss. No messing with fuel. Works great all the time, good waether, bad wet weather, high altitude, hiking, hot, cold. Lightweight but durable. Don't ever want to mess with white gas or even propane stoves again.

Rated4out of5byKunihifromLight, powerful and needs flat area.Boils water in a jiffy especially with titanium. Does have the ability to simmer, but in an exposed place on a windy day it is tough - the windscreen is light, but not too effective in the wind. Its like cooking with a miniature jet engine in the inverted position, does make some noise but much improved boil time. You really need a flat spot, preferably a rock, to keep it stable while cooking. Cooking in an uneven spot on a windy day is tough. Skeptical about the bag it comes with, the stove seems pretty solid but I got a small, lightweight plastic box to keep the windscreen and reflective pad from getting bent out of shape. One small container of fuel lasts about half and hour using inverted about half the time on a hot Honolulu day a few hundred feet above sea level. Overall, for my uses its great considering it's weight and boil time and probably pretty good for most folks desiring those two qualities in the back country. Will update review after a stretch on the PCT this summer.

Rated5out of5byBLYinAHfromMSR Windpro II ReviewThis stove is great for backpacking and hiking and cold weather camping. Our backpacking crews used this at Philmont and for all of our High Adventure training. Easy to light, lightweight, collapses well to take up very little space, windshield is useful, though the edges can be sharp. The fuel works great in all weather, especially in higher altitudes and colder weather (used twice during snowy weekends so far this year).

Rated4out of5byRunatlantafromLove this stoveI recently bought this stove but have only taken it out one time so far- on an overnight trip on the approach trail to Springer Mountain in north Ga. I have the micro rocket stove as well and I'd say the Wind pro is better if you are trying to 'cook' things as the flame output is a bit wider than the micro rocket and more stable with a pot/pan on top of it. The temp control was excellent as well and I could keep a low flame/heat output with no problem as I fried some eggs and bacon.
If you want to boil water, it cranks up and does the job in no time too so no worries there. I like the versatility of being able to do both with ease.
I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated5out of5byLateLunchfromWonderful StoveI have found this stove to be a wonderful all-round stove. I think nothing of tossing it and a small kettle in my daypack for brewing up tea. It also goes along on winter expeditions when cold weather cancels out my other cartridge stoves. by simply inverting the cannister, with the included stand, I can boil away at below-freezing temps.
A windscreen is a must, and so it a heat reflector if you cook on delicate surfaces. It will fit onto MSR's Trillium stove base.
The only downside is that it gulps fuel when the cannister is inverted. But, given that you're only using the canister inverted WHEN YOU REALLY NEED TO, it shouldn't be a problem. In fact, I find this stove to be very efficient.

Rated5out of5byRideHikeCampfromStable, Good control, Cooks for a crowdI selected this stove to bridge the gap between a servicible backpacking stove (light weight) and something suited to Moto and group camping where I'd want more control, stability, and user friendliness than is available from a canister-mount model.
The best part of the stove is its usability. The remote canister design allows me to use a windscreen & base reflector (thoughtfully included), which makes it much more efficient. It's stable, and I can adjust the flame while wearing gloves with no problem.
It packs reasonably well: After folding up the legs, I put mine into my tupperware bowl. It won't fit into as many places as a canister-top mini-stove, but it's servicible... & the price you pay for big-pot stability.
Even during inverted use (liquid flow mode) it still gave me great flame control, and I like being able to coax that last little bit of fuel from the canister.
It does a lot, with only a small compromise in weight. The added cold weather, high altitude performance makes those couple of ounces easier to bear.
