The MSR WhisperLite Stove has been a staple in the industry for over 25 years. 25 years is a lot of years. That's like 175 years in dog years. That's an old dog. Simplicity and reliability, that's how you survive in the industry for that long. The first stove I ever used was a WhisperLite and it was a breeze right out of the box. It runs on white gas, which is the cleanest burning type of fuel and it is self-cleaning with a simple shake. Comes with the fuel pump, windscreen and heat reflector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bulletproof Stove for High Adventure We have used these stoves for years in the Scouts, so when the Troop needed to add some more backpacking stoves, there was never a question!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over 25 years old and still works like a champ I was cleaning out my attic today and found my MSR Whisperlight stove. I thought it was lost because I hadn't seen it in over a decade. I have used the stove hundreds of times and was super excited to see it again. Interesting thing about the stove is that I'm pretty sure I bought it about 1987 when I was working a backpacking store. It's 2018 now. I wanted to see if the stove is still made in case I needed parts. I found the MSR website which said they've been making the stove for over 25 years. I'm pretty sure it's longer than 25 years. There weren't websites when I bought my stove. I took the stove out and filled it with fresh fuel. It took a little bit of tapping and shaking but I got it all cleaned out and within ten minutes it was burning like the day I bought it. This is simply an amazing piece of equipment. Thank you MSR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again if mine were damaged I have use MSR gear for about 15 years now. I started out with the international whisperlite stove and continue to use this stove today if I'm Kayaking, Hiking. No need to change when it just works all the time. MSR support has been perfect every time I need them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 25+ years and still going Bought this in 1991. Used in the West, in the East, and on the Plains. Just checked it for a backcountry trip in Yellowstone coming up. Still going strong. Yes, have had to replace seals and filters, but that's about all. It just never fails. Prefer it to prepackaged fuel stoves as I can choose the size of my fuel bottle. It is the ultimate in flexibility and it never let's you down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Stove For Every Season The MSR WhisperLite is a backcountry powerhouse! It is one of the best stoves I've ever used. I work in outdoor ed, and I find these stoves, which are small, light, and durable, to be an excellent tool for teaching wilderness cooking. They are extremely sturdy, and are unlikely to tip-unlike the majority of canister stoves on the market today-making them a safe choice for beginners. They are easy to use, and fairly intuitive, which is beneficial when working with students. While they don't have the sophisticated temperature control of the Dragonfly stoves, the WhisperLite can be coaxed into a simmer. Most importantly, the WhisperLite is incredibly easy to repair and maintain, both in and out of the field. The ability to disassemble the stove completely for cleaning is invaluable. Additionally, the WhisperLite does not require any particular specialty tools to maintain. For field repairs, a multitool is usually sufficient, but the inexpensive MSR service kit contains everything one needs to keep the stove cooking. On the other hand, the common failure for WhisperLites is in the o-rings-on the fuel bottle or on the fuel pump. To get more o-rings, one is obligated to buy another service kit, or contact MSR directly to buy bulk o-rings. The MSR crew is quick, friendly, and responsive, but it would be nice to be able to purchase bulk o-rings on the website. While the WhisperLite does perform fantastically in cold weather, continual use in desert environments causes the plastic of the fuel pump and the rubber of the o-rings to become brittle. This leads to the final death of the fuel pump, due to cracked plastic or melting. The only solution is to buy a new fuel pump. As a logistics coordinator for an outdoor education company, I find the WhisperLite to be an affordable and efficient solution to feeding students in the backcountry. It is safe, compact, and fuel efficient, and I recommend it to anyone looking to buy a quality backpacking stove.
