The legend continues with the MSR WhisperLite™ Universal backpacking stove. The trail-worthy stove gives you the option to burn nearly any fuel source, including white gas and isobutane-propane.
The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
Rated4out of5byJack-look-in-the-airfromcompact stove for larger potswe've got minimalist stoves for solo trips with just a half-liter cup as cookware, but when the family (4) goes backpacking, we wanted a lightish stove that's stable enough to hold a decent sized pot. This one did the trick. Stable, comes with everything you need in the box (stove, couplings for canisters or bottles, bottom heat shield, windscreen). Lights easily and flame nicely adjustable. Worked great the first time out.

Rated4out of5byransfordwfromExcellent Product!I've taken this on a few trips now and it's been a great decision. It's a little difficult to light but once its going its easy to control the amount of heat. I use this most to brew coffee but its also good for heating up whatever you have that needs heating up if you've got the pots for it.

Rated5out of5byfatblakefromAwesome stoveWe used this stove one on a car camping trip and it worked very well. It was very easy to light and too no time to warm up our chili. I liked the fact that we could use wind screens with the canister. I can't wait to take it backpacking. The only one con was the stove is very expensive compared to other stoves on the market.

Rated3out of5byWiscoMikefromGood stove, kind of expensiveI bought this stove as a "second" stove for backpacking trips when we need to use larger pots and pans. It is a little bulky, but works great.

Rated4out of5byJamesGfromGood Stove But Difficult To ChangeMSR is a great company with a great reputation. This product surely is no different. However, when I purchased this stove to take backpacking I got home and tried to disassemble it. It would not come apart. The nuts were locked down too tight, even with the provided tool. Also, the fuel line would not break down because the fit was off. I immediately took it back and got a different stove - same model. Got home...same problem.
I came back again and they replaced it again. This time I had the REI staff look at the broken stove with me. They were shocked.
Third time was the charm. The stove came apart as advertised and works great. Just as I expect from MSR. Four stars because of the trouble. Otherwise it would be five. It is a fantastic stove. Justine sure you disassemble it before taking it into the field to be sure.

Rated5out of5byZach BurmasterfromGreat ExperienceUsed this stove to boil water for coffee after tornadoes took out power for three days, also some light use while car camping to boil water. At this point I have only used the MSR superfuel. While it's not as simple of a system as some canister stoves, the versatility more than makes up for the added effort. Very pleasant experience.

Rated4out of5byCamperfromGreat stoveUsed the stove last week when hiking on a 20 mile hike during a very hot and windy day.
Took a few attempts to light it but this is probably due my inexperience (this was the second time I ever used it, and the first time was a dry run at home when I got it).
Boiled about two cups of water extremely fast and used very little gasoline. The tea was great.
Note that when using unleaded fuel if seems to collect some soot in the lower part, but it's not terrible.
The pouch is neatly designed. It has a small pocket for the tools and spare parts, some of which are included with the stove.
Overall I'm very satisfied and plan on taking it with me on all possible trips.
