The MSR Reactor is a gas stove from the MSR Fast and Light series aimed at backpackers who want a lightweight, easy to use stove for camping adventures. The MSR Reactor is a personal cooking system similar to the Jetboil Flash and Sol but has a larger 1.7 litre capacity and can also cook food rather than just drinks. The Reactor Stove is a super fast fuel efficient stove system with a radiant burner enclosed by a heat exchanger for super performance in windy conditions. The MSR Reactor System is compact allowing the stove and the fuel to stow away inside the large cooking pot and is ideal for anything from solo camping trips to cooking for up to three people.
If you need a quick boiling, fuel efficient solution for the trail or hills, the MSR Reactor stove is top of our list.
