Great cold weather stove!

It's an MSR product, so you know it's going to be good! I've always used a jet boil and love it! BUT the more I get into cold weather trips, my jet boil fuel canisters were getting too cold and not efficiently boiling my water. This MSR whisperlite let's you use a variety of liquid fuels (so less stress if you forget your fuel at home and need to make a last minute trip to the nearest gas station), and it is much more efficient in the cold weather. Downside is that it is a process to get going, but like most gear, once you figure it out it isn't so bad! Overall, in the summer for a quick 1 or 2 night trip I will probably bring my jet boil, but any longer trips where I need more fuel, or colder temperatures, I will definitely bring this stove!

Do yourself a favor and just buy it

The whisperlite is my preferred choice for a light weight stove. Keeping it clavicle with good old naphtha instead of propane or butane.
Weighing at 410g it by no means compromises any weight restrictions (not including the fuel).
A 650ml bottle keeps me cooking for a week plus some making it much more efficient than the propane/butane stoves, just don't mistake it for your water bottle. It also comes in handy if your fire need a little extra tlc to get going, one cap full will do the trick.
Oh ya and it only takes like 3 minutes to boil a pop of water so there's no long wait for your Ramen after a long day of skiing/climbing.

Love this!! Took this on my 5 months Appalachian Trail thru hike. Easy to use, compact, and can use any type of fuel.

Easy, reliable, compatible with international fuel. Great backpacking stuff. Not super light and you’ll have to carry gas but this is what our best meals in the backcountry are made of.

MSR’s WhisperLite is a tried and true liquid-fuel stove system. It’s reliability and durability has been great. Making it a go-to stove for adventure seekers more than 25 years.
Maintenance is simple and basic/annual upkeep can easily keep this stove operating for decades. As mine has. Although I’ve had no issues or field failures, I have heard (albeit not very often) an occasional issue with the control valve being the most spoken of. That being said, I would still recommend this system and continue to use it myself.
