MSR WhisperLite International

MSR has been one of the most recognized names in camping stoves for decades, and for good reason. At the heart of MSR's impressive stove line is the Whisperlite International. Simple, proven design makes this my go to stove for almost every occasion. Weighing in at just under 16oz the Whisperlite packs extremely light, yet I'm constantly impressed with its quick cook time. I average about a 5 minute boil time, and have no trouble cooking meals for multiple people. The versatility of being able to switch between white gas and kerosene is incredibly handy, especially when traveling out of the U.S.. hence the "International" name. The only knock I have against the stove is a lack of a "simmer" option. However, this has never been an issue for me and if you can achieve a simmer level of flame by removing the gas bottle, relieving the pressure, re attaching the fuel and pumping fewer times than normal. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a simple, reliable stove that performs great at any elevation.
