MSR® Engineers WindBoiler Personal Stove System for Weekend Backpackers


MSR (Mountain Safety Research®), the Seattle-based manufacturer of high-performance outdoor equipment, today announced its all-new WindBoiler Personal Stove System for Fall 2014.

The new stove offers outdoor enthusiasts the superior wind protection of the award-winning, alpinist Reactor Stove System with the user friendliness of a convenient, compact personal system for weekend backpackers. The result is a personal cook system that offers easy usability, superior boil times, and unmatched fuel efficiency in real-world conditions.


The WindBoiler’s ultra-efficient radiant burner combined with its enclosed design allows it to operate flawlessly in cold and windy conditions where other stoves slow or fail. Faster boil times mean less fuel consumption, and less for users to carry. The WindBoiler boils 0.5L of water a full minute faster than the leading competition in a breeze. In a 12-mph wind, it boils in a mere 2:45 min., while the competition fails to boil, no matter the amount of fuel used.

Primary air combustion, and convective and radiant heating help the WindBoiler achieve its high performance. A built-in heat exchanger adds greater efficiency. Together, the WindBoiler offers users unparalleled cooking reliability, regardless of the conditions of their environment.

The WindBoiler’s smart construction also restricts flames from singing the insulated cozy and handle, even in strong winds. Built for one to two backpackers, the system features an intuitive, easy-to-use, handheld design. The compact pot twists onto the windproof burner for a secure, non-slip fit.

The integrated full-size bowl allows minimalists to comfortably cook and serve enough food for one to two companions. The WindBoiler’s clear BPA-free lid plays triple duty: it features a strainer, a drinking lid, and is coffee press compatible.

MSR rounds out the WindBoiler stove collection with a handful of smart accessories, including the WindBoiler 1.0L Accessory Pot, WindBoiler Coffee Press Kit, and the WindBoiler Hanging Kit.

The new MSR WindBoiler Personal Stove System and accessories debut at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in August 2014 and will be available at retail stores in September 2014.
