SEATTLE, Washington – MSR (Mountain Safety Research), the Seattle-based brand of proven backcountry gear for demanding users, today announced that the MSR Reactor Stove System has started shipping to limited retail outlets in North America. The MSR Reactor Stove System design features radical, patent-pending technology including a convective and radiant heat burner and an internal pressure regulator – allowing it to work in all conditions and able to boil one liter of water in less than three minutes. Originally slated for shipment in the spring of 2007, the stove is highly anticipated due to early press coverage, awards, and enthusiastic reviews from early field testers.

In June, the company announced a delay in shipment as a result of stringent testing protocol. After honing the stove design to consistently meet its testing standards, the stove went back into production at the Seattle manufacturing facility. The first units shipped will begin to fill pre-orders at retail outlets.

“We're shipping them out as fast as we are building them,” said Bill Conradt, Director of Sales, North America. “But due to the significant demand, they're going to be fairly difficult to find on store shelves for a while.”

Local retailers will be the point of contact for purchase, as Cascade Designs does not sell directly to consumers. The company anticipates the production and supply of stoves meeting up with the demand by January of 2008.
