MSR WindPro

msr-windpro.jpgMSR WindPro – Cook in a hurricane.

Ok, so cooking in a hurricane might be stretch, even for the MSR WindPro. In tests, the MSR WindPro outperformed all other competitors in a wind test. This tiny and lightweight backpacking stove allows you to cook like a pro and just about backcountry condition.

The MSR WindPro is not only compact and light weight, but is also easy to use. The MSR WindPro requires no priming, pre-heating, pumping, or pressurizing. All that’s required to get the MSR WindPro up and running is to attach it to the IsoPro fuel canister.

The flame on the MSR WindPro is fully adjustable, allowing to simmer, boil, or anything in-between. The entire MSR WindPro unit is designed for backcountry maintenance. Every part of the MSR WindPro is made to be taken apart and easily replaced when on the trail.
