The MSR WindBurner is an award winning stove system which boils water efficiently for life on the trail or on paddling trips or adventures. It comprises a one-litre water pot with lid, the burner system and a cup and lid, all of which fits neatly together. It’s perfect for a day hatch of a sea kayak or tourer and could be carried in a dry bag in your river boat.
Its radiant burner and enclosed, windproof design allow the stove to boil water fast and operate in weather that leaves conventional burners in the cold. The Wind Burner has capacity for solo traveller or teams/groups. The integrated cookwear pot has an integral heat exchanger.
The all-in-one system nests inside its pot for easy packing and assembly – leaving more time for you to enjoy your adventure. We tested the stove on the river banks of the River Severn whilst canoeing, on a woodland canoe and camping trip and in the wilds of Norway. Our test Wind Burner delivered hot chocolates, coffees, soup and popcorn definitely boosting morale.
