It was too far to go back, so I bought a Dragonfly on my way up. After a week of use, I’m going to have a hard time going back to my Coleman. Pros: – Awesome simmer – Big and stable base for large pots – Folds up compact – Powerful – Fuel-efficient Cons: – Loud (very loud, but I can put up with it) – The pump and fittings for the Dragonfly are a different size than the other MSR stoves!! My friend brought a Whisperlight International and he accidentally grabbed my fuel-bottle w/ pump attached and we found they are not compatible. The Dragonfly pump-fitting and pump are a slightly larger diameter than the Whisperlight. We each brought our own pumps, but if for some reason we lost/damaged one, it would be nice to be able to just use the other pump with it. My 20 year old MSR WaterWorks can use the same filter-cartridge as the newer MiniWorks EX. Why is there not the same convenient cross-compatibility with the stoves? It’s not a deal-breaker, but just something surprising. Dependable year after year. About 12 years with my stove. No problems at all in that time. Easy to light, sips fuel, weighs little. The only stove worth considering for backpacking trips. My parents had one (gave it to my sister 20 year old stove) and i have had mine for about 10 years. Both stoves have always operated flawlessly and neither has ever spilled a meal. Once i got grit in the stove and it got bunged up on that 7 day backpacking trip but because its built to be servicable i didnt even have to suffer a single cold meal. I took it apart cleaned it after the days hiking and had it back together in time for dinner. I will never ever reccomend ANY other stove to anyone. And despite being 10 years separated they are both built the same. Like the Miniworks waterpump even 30 years from now i can count on being able to get replacement parts. Making these heiriloom equipment that can be passed down. This stove will not disappoint. As a canoe trip leader, I have had years of experience using these stoves. I completely stand by them in durability and quality. I love the double valve system and how easily the stove packs up. The heat is strong and adjustable allowing for cooking at various temps. Drawbacks include: loud operating noise and powered by white petroleum fuel NOT pressurized camping fuel cannisters. 20 Years, Zero Problems. I got this stove as a gift back in 1998. I’ve never needed anything else. During most of that span I have been a frequent camper, including multiple months-long bouts of living out of a backpack full-time while traveling. The MSR Dragonfly went everywhere with me, burned every kind of fuel, and performed reliably in every condition, from high altitude melting snow in -20 C to humid tropics to extreme desert heat below sea level. The power output on full puts higher end stoves to shame powerful enough to melt lead! , and the fully adjustable flame means I can easily turn it down to cook rice or reheat leftovers. Having seen a lot of other people’s gear over the years, mine was the one that worked best every time, in every condition, and I have never had a reason to switch. The wind screens seem a bit fiddly but work great, and I just broke the first one last year- after 19 years of folding and unfolding! I have only ever had or needed one fuel bottle, which I store with the pump screwed on. Typically I burn gasoline, but have at various times used whatever I could find: white gas, diesel, charcoal lighter fluid, paint thinner? It has never leaked, clogged, or caused problems with fuel. The setup is fast and easy- I have literally set this stove up and cooked meals in 20 minutes in a back alley before moving on. Extremely lightweight, carries plenty of fuel, and rarely takes more than one match to light even in lousy conditions. Quite simply, this stove beats every other design I have ever seen. I was very lucky to get it all those many adventures ago! Truly built to last. MSR’s Dragonfly – This Is The Stove You Want!!!!!!! Dependability, low simmer capabilities, light, packable, if these are important in a stove to you – this is the stove you want. If you like gourmet meals – This is the stove you want. I have four MSR stoves, Two of them are dragonfly stoves. My other two stoves are in retirement because once I got my first dragonfly, my cooking capabilities in the field increased tenfold. There is only one thing better than the dragonfly stove And that is two dragonfly stoves, if you have the room. You’re talking incredible cuisine options. I didn’t realize how important low simmering capabilities were until I got the dragonfly. It heats fast n simmers low, very low. Darn, it’s getting me hungry just writing this review… Yes it costs more than most and if you want a quiet stove this is not the one to get. But if you can live with those two things – This is the stove you want!!!! This review is written by a consumer without any affiliation with MSR or Cascade Designs, the parent company. Btw, I live in Seattle and I can tell you this: MSR’s post sale customer service is second to None. The Dragonfly stove is a five star product from a five star company!!!! Super stable stove for larger pots and pans. This stove, with its wide base, is super stable for wider pots i. Great when cooking for larger groups. Gives you extra confidence that dinner isn’t going to be served with a dirt garnish! I would but this product again. I love the way this product operates, and allows me to effectively adjust the flame while cooking. It roars into action following priming. The wide legs and pot placement provide excellent stability. I haven’t used it yet. My friends use this stoke when they’re doing all sorts of rad things and recommended it. I’ll use it bike packing, kayaking maybe, skiing probably, hiking perhaps. It is pretty shiny. 10 years of great camp cooking. I have had my Dragonfly for 10 years & hundreds of hot dinners & morning coffees now & it’s been super reliable. We enjoy cooking so having good flame control is a must for gourmet camp meals. The light weight makes it an excellent hiking stove. It’s also well suited for our motorcycle touring & camping as it runs well on gasoline which is never hard to find. It’s less stinky starting up on white gas though so we run that if using it inside huts. It’s only fault is that it is quite loud, especially at full power. Best stove ever for backcountry cooking. I’m so happy I bought this stove. We cook meals in the backcountry, usually with food we dehydrated ourselves. The temperature control on this stove is very precise, allowing for better simmering/boiling/frying/etc. Than any other stove we’ve used. Because it can be cold in the morning in Michigan, liquid fuel is a far superior choice for backpacking here (in my opinion) and this stove has been great for us. We had an old MSR Simmerlite for many years. It served us well, but this is a huge upgrade. Great thing my Tupolev. Very happy with this stove. And with clean fuel it is fine. It is a noisy one. As one said before like a plane. That’s why I nicknamed my stove Tupolev. When hearing those Russian planes, the sound is like the same. But it is a friendly nickname. I like the ability to use different fuels although I use white gas exclusively. Takes longer to get started than my other stoves but it does more than my other stoves when I’ve time to spare. I already have several MSR stoves but the dragonfly was a perfect addition. The best features for me are the wide stable base for large pots and skillets and the simmer. I first bought this for a Boundary Waters canoe trip with our family and it has worked great ever since. I bought this stove 8 years ago and it’s still going strong. It holds up abuse and works pretty well in all kinds of weather. I have discovered no flaws at all. It’s just doesn’t have any ignition so you need a lighter. I bought this because they said you can control the flame. Well that is an understatement. This is by far the best stove on the market. Control is the answer to great camp food and this stove gets it done. If all you want is to heat water for coffee than ANY stove will do. The DragonFly is the stove for GREAT camp cooking. Reliabilty and versatility for your outdoor needs. So I’ve bought my MSR Firefly 4 months ago, secondhand and well worn. I bought it cause I was planning to travel Europe hiking along and through national parks, and I would need to cook in the outdoors for every day. So I needed a stove that would be easy to fill and would last me the whole trip without failure. I decided on the firefly. It’s multi fuel solution and easy to repair features set it apart. I’ve been using it for a bit more than 3 months now, spending hours and hours cooking on this stove. It has survived rainstorms and dry and dusty fields, making this my favorite outdoor item in my backpack. The MSR Firefly is a great stove and I truly trust it working every time. Amazing stove what can I say. I have had my dragonfly stove for around 15-16 years It’s only had one issue due to a defect Cascade designs replaced it no questions asked it is my first item that I pack when I go on a hike If you are looking for an amazing product for cooking this is the stove to have on a scale from 1-10 I give this stove a 15. This stove has been on every camping, wild camping and snow-holing trip I’ve been on since I got it. It’s low maintenance and so reliable, quick, powerful and controllable. I bought a Dragonfly in 1998, and since then it has been with me on any expedition, on various peaks, in the Afghan deserts and mountains and performs impeccably even in extreme altitudes in the war zones. I is the only certain item in my backpacks, everything else may vary. If you could only have 1 stove. I have had this stove for over a decade now and it has never let me down. It has its peculiarities: it sounds like a jet engine, its not the smallest or lightest anymore, it has the tendency to burn down the planet on ignition until you learn how to use it properly, but once you master it, This is an amazing unit. It sips fuel, it cooks from a delicate simmer to a raging inferno with easy adjustment, it’s tough, it’s multifuel, it’s included windscreen is great, the pump unit is easily replaceable if damaged, and it isn’t too bulky even after almost 20 years of service. Clean them jets from time to time, feed it naptha as the main course, and oil the pump from time to time and this stove will be the one you give to your kids for their first trip. A great example of a little bit of luxury out on the trail. Quick to set up and super fast at boiling water. Would be lost without it! Took this stove with me on an all summer adventure with the family. Worked flawlessly, a culinary delight sent from heaven. An outstanding, versatile stove. I’ve had mine for 15 years, and it has never let me down. This includes using kerosene and diesel fuel when white gas was not available. You can repair or replace individual parts, though I’ve never had to replace anything but the filter. It is also the first multifuel stove I’ve ever used where the flame control genuinely works. In 15 years of regular use, there are only 2 things about it I don’t like. First, it’s loud. Not much to be done about that. Second, there are much faster ways to boil water. The windscreen foil helps keep the heat focused on your cookpot, but there are other stoves by Jetboil for example that have really excellent heat transducers that will boil a pot of water in way less time. That’s pretty handy when you just want your coffee, and you don’t have to worry about running out of those butane canisters. But in the long run (the multi-decade-long run) the dragonfly is a superior stove. Bought this for my last trip, fast and easy not the smallest but small enough to carry in works good. I have used this stove on 2 different trips so far. It boils water for your morning coffee super fast! It is also versatile enough enough fry pancakes golden brown or simmer sauce for a perfect pasta dish. It was pretty fuel efficient as well so you don’t have to carry a ton of fuel with you. I highly recommend this stove if you are looking for flexibility in your meal choices. The Perfect Stove for Every Meal! I have been using this stove for the last 5 years. Never once has it let me down. I have used a few others over the years with other hiking friends, some of which do just a little bit more, but have been finicky in one way or another. If you want a reliable and easy to use stove the Dragonfly is for you! It is easy to light heats water quickly and simmers beautifully. I bought this for Philmont, after using the troop stoves for the BWCA, I decided to get a dependable one for myself and for Philmont. Our group brought 2 stoves, my dragonfly being one of the stoves, and we couldn’t get the other stove working properly at all, and used the dragonfly the entire trip, it worked great in cold weather, high elevation, and handled everything we asked of it beautifully, and used less fuel than expected. This stove has never failed me even in the cold. I bought this stove 6 years ago to augment my 2 lightweight iso-butane stoves. It works very well even in -30°C temperatures in Labrador. Workhorse sets the standard. I’ve had my Dragonfly for over 5 years now, and have used it on many high-altitude expeditions. I’ve never had any problems with it. It is lightweight and works like a charm. I’ve owned my DragonFly stove for ten years. Just used it again this past weekend and never fails to deliver. It’s an absolute flamethrower and can also do a low simmer. I’ve only ever used white gas, but I’ve used it in sub 0 temps and up to about 12000 ft and it worked great every time with minimal maintenance. The only thing I’ve had to replace was the pump. When it comes to backcountry stoves, the Dragonfly is by far the easiest to set up, use and maintains a constant heat very well. Powerful, excellent multi-use stove. The double valve system is great for adjusting flame size and the stand makes for a large surface area to put pots and pans on. I own one personally and also use them on canoe trips that I lead. They are louder than the whisper-lite but the power is worth it. These are good stoves. I have had this for years and it keeps going when there is a wind. I have had the stove for quite a few years and actually bought a second when on a trip with a large group and required more cooking surfaces. When I first fired up this stove on a Boy Scout backpack trip, it’s’roar’ prompted comments that it sounded like a jet engine. Now every adult leader has their own, and the troop has bought several. Very reliable, easy to maintain, capable of supporting a large pot to boil water, and can use several fuels. Excellent all around stove! I love everything Msr and we use dragonflies, whisperlites, and xgk’s. Although my colleges like the whisperlites the most that’s souly because all they do is cook oatmeal. I on the other hand enjoy gourmet backcountry meals to serve my clients and the dragonfly is my choice stove! And with the Msr backcountry oven you just cant beat it! Compact folding and clean burning. I take it everywhere and enjoy the no charring effect from white fuel. It’s large enough for cooking for two and small enough for one while lightweight packing and fast easy set up. I have the dragonfly stove for over a year. Simple to set up and use. Love the adjustability from rapid boil to simmer. Folds down tiny to fit in the kyack or backpack. Easy to maintain with virtually no tools. The Dragonfly is no lightweight. I’ve had the Dragonfly stove for about a year now, and have taken it on 6 camping trips with me, cooking for our group of 7 adult campers. Our camping site is at 5,500 ft altitude, and the stove has performed flawlessly on white gas and kerosene, with various pans and pots. 7 male adult campers means large amounts of food at every meal, and the Dragonfly handled the task flawlessly. Using the included shield, not only contains the heat, making for a more efficient stove, but also helps distribute the heat more evenly in the pan. Fairly small and lightweight, this stove is a heavy hitter! Simmers for chef in all of us, handles large pots. For some backcountry adventures the ability to simmer is the only way to go to make those menu items that you’ve been craving. The dragonFly stove does just tht, it simmers. It gives you all the fuel efficiency you have come to expect with other liquid fuel MSR stoves yet it simmers and handles large cookware with ease. It has a very stable base when the stove legs are folded open thus giving it a solid cooking platform. A great stove for those that need the benegits of liquid fuel yet allows a fuel heat range from a candle simmer to a fuel on blast furnace. A very practical yet efficient backcountry burner to handle all your camping and backcountry cooking needs. It does have a unique sound like a mini jet engine though noise in the backcountry is not really a bad thing when amongst wildlife. The stove is not fired up on high for all ypur cooking and you use the stove so infrequently that noise from this reliable and practical stove should be the least of your concerns. I’m an avid hiker, hunter, and a lightweight portable stove is very important for me, especially when putting long hours, and miles on per day. The only thing I wish is that the fuel line that’s connected to the stove was slightly longer, and more flexible. When stove is running full bore, as it produces quite a bit of heat. And having the fuel bottle that close, makes me slightly uncomfortable. The wind screen that comes with the stove, is garbage in my book. I’ve had this stove for five years now. So far it has been bomb proof. I use it in the BWCA. It has been dropped, submerged, left out in the rain, and keeps on going. I also perform annual maintenance so that helps too, but it’s easy maintenance. It can boil water super fast and can also get the perfect pot of percolated coffee by being able to adjust the intensity of the flame down to a fine simmer. It is loud at times, but the functionality of the stove for various cooking styles out weigh the noise. To me, it can’t be beat! What can i say about this stove other than simply the best. I upgraded to the Dragonfly a year ago now mainly because of the simmer control and the fact i make all my own backpacking meals and lets face it if you wanna simmer a cheese sause make pancakes or a pudding for dessert you need to have some control over your heat. The #1 complaint i hear about this stove is the noise level, witch to be honest i find minimal and a very small issue. This stove have been with me for week plus long trips summer and winter. While i do cary a expatiation service kit i havent hat to replace a thing yet. The dragonfly is a work horse and will provide hours of smiles over a well cooked meal after a long day. Dragonfly Stove your gourmet option. I have been the happy owner of several whisperlite stoves in the past but for the weight and adjustability my new Dragonfly trumps them. I love the ease of starting, the adjustable fluid knob being close to the actual stove and not the bottle and this stove will simmer or boil water in a hurry. This stove is loud but I quickly got used to this and have dined on some amazing dinners without burning my sauce with the Dragonfly stove. I have used this stove for more than 2 years. It is easy to use and maintain. I have had this stove with me all over the oregon back country and it continues to preform. The last time I used this it worked great. I bought the stove for its flame control, it does what its supposed to, I have it 4 stars because I would like the fuel line to be longer. Once I had it, I stopped looking. I bought my 1st dragonfly w/c is about conservatively 14 yrs. Ago to a frend who is leaving to migrate to another country and he had used it at about 3-4yrs,,, until it had it’s day but not really coz it was just the check valve that got busted,, so when it got busted i ordered another because im very satisfiied with the first so there was no doubt what burner will I Want to have in the outdoors! I’ve had this dragonfly stove for 6months now so can give some feedback. I chose this stove as I can refill canisters, use multiple types of fuel, it’s base is large enough for a decent sized pot and the output is controllable from a roar to a simmer. My intended use is canoeing so it’s rather large size compared to say a msr pocket rocket didn’t concern me. The first use of the stove was actually on a snowshoe for a warm drink. This stove was overkill for such an easy task of boiling water. Even in the cold wind it brought water to a boil fairly quickly and really didn’t use much fuel. If my only use was to boil water I’d bring a lighter more compact stove. I decided to put the heat output to the test next with a batch of popcorn. Too hot and its burnt, too low and nothing pops. There was a light wind so I used the provided windscreen, I was able to get the oil to a high temp and back it off after to not burn. I’d call it a success. Tips for the stove. Use the windscreen, you save fuel. You can keep the pump in the fuel canister saving some space and decrease risk of damage. I’d not store it there permanently though as it likely will break the plastic down faster. The King of Stoves! I’ve had my Dragonfly for over 10 years now! Travelled in heavy winter blizzards with nasty Minus Temperatures to match. Travelled in sweltering humid conditions. And not once has my Dragonfly let me down. With Annual Maintenance from the Annual Maintenance Kit and the security of knowing I have my Dragonfly Expedition Maintenance Kit (which I have never needed to use may I add) my Dragonfly roars on and on and on. I enjoy cooking for large groups of people. When it comes to Expeditions I have been the Expedition Leader and Cook all rolled into one. And using both the old MSR Blacklite Mondo and the new Flex 4 System I have been able to cook for the many members of my Expedition Club. It lets me bring a fresh pan of Stew or Soup to a roaring boil in minutes then have the precision to have the liquid goodness roll gentle while everyone gets ready for serving without overcooking. Even with a gloved hand during biting winter storms I have been able to carefully adjust flame output. I’ve used it in winter camping and it worked great. It’s super loud, but boils water in a second! However, it’s a bit bulky and if you don’t need to control heat output too much, the second gas control is not needed. To sum it up, as I’ve been told before, if you live to eat, take a dragonfly, but if you eat to live, take a whisperlite, it’s lighter and more compact! It all comes down to your preferences and I prefer whisperlite.. Fuel pump wasn’t matching. Stove itself is top, with the right pump it works very well. My Second Great Stove. I have had this since 1998. I can depend on this stove. It has a flame that is robust and yet can be tamed. One of the best general stoves! I have a several camp stoves (and a bunch of MSR’s) — I seem to always land taking my dragonfly these days. The ease of use of the dragonfly (and easy simmering) make it like cooking in a kitchen (well, as close to it in the wild) with the perfect heat/flame. While not MSR approved, when I can spare the weight, I use a’QuietStove’ flame spreader, which makes it as quiet as my whisperlite, which makes other campers (& my wife, who sleeps in) happy. If I had to get rid of all but one stove, it would be a tight race with this & my xgk, with he dragonfly just winning. Dragonfly stove is my go to stove! I have had my Dragonfly stove for many years. What I like is the sturdy legs that will fit a larger pot or skillet. One downfall is it is a bit noisy. It has that jet engine sound. Great multi fuel stove. Bought this several years ago, and have used it hard on hiking trips. It might be a little noisy but cooks and simmers nicely. Great for area where we could not have campfires. I love the fact it uses multiple fuel types. Just keeps going, and easy to use, without a lot of fiddling. I use a pocket rocket in the states solely for size and ease, but going out of country can make finding iso cans pretty difficult. The dragonfly will work on EVERYTHING. Gas, Kerosene, alcohol, I’ve used them all. There is some maintenance and know-how needed to keep this up over the years but I’m in love with this old faithful. Bulky but it is what it is. Great at home or in the woods! No matter where I go, I can always find a fuel that will work with this stove. Some of the more dirty fuels (kerosine, diesel, gasoline) will blacken your pots. Just put some soap on the outside of the pot before you cook and it will wash right off. I’ve cooked chili, spaghetti, Cincinnati chili and even fried chicken in a dutch oven using this thing! It’s a proven workhorse I can rely on. This is my second Dragonfly. I’d still be on my first if I didn’t lend it to a friend. This stove has a ton of versatility with the ability to regulate temperature. It packs inside of my kit and does pretty well on fuel. The one minor drawback is it is pretty loud. Good for basecamp and creative cooking. I’ve had this stove for 10 + years now. It’s been well used and incredibly reliable – I always bring a backup parts kit and have never used it! Pros: – reliable – simmers and boils equally well – sturdy base / platform for stove – good for basecamp or canoe tripping Cons: – quite noisy, like a helicopter – heavy, so not ideal for lightweight backpacking. The most versatile camp stove I have ever owned! I have had a MSR dragonfly for well over a decade at this point. It has been my primary camping stove for weekend car camping trips to week, long alpine skiing expeditions, and as my primary cook stove when I lived in a tent for a couple of summers. It has never once let me down. The only maintenance I have had to do is on the pump seals. To be honest I don’t always use the dragonfly. I have a pocket rocket that I use for solo summer adventures. I used to have a jet boil, but I couldn’t bring myself to be limited to a single pot. Sometimes a guy wants bacon. White gas may be a little more work than butane, but it wins on availability and energy density, and cold weather performance. There are two key areas where the dragonfly performs better than any other stove I have owned. First the The flame adjustment It has great simmer while still having a full blown water boiling jet like and XGK. My experience is that with a heat shield It will also boil water faster than a jetboil (especially when it’s cold), and perhaps as fast as a XGK. The second area I find the dragonfly excels on is legs. The are extremely stable It will support a coffee mug reheating on simmer and a huge pot or large cast skillet at base camp or on a tailgate. Exceptional, fast heating and great versatility. I love this stove! Heats up very quickly, stays hot, and makes a great sound while running. It’s cheaper because you can keep reusing your own fuel bottles(and white gas is cheap). Best lightweight stove out there! I have had this stove for several years now and always enjoy using it. I like to do some baking when camping so I wanted a stove where I had good control over the flame. The Dragonfly definitely fits the bill. I use it regularly with my Outback Oven and it works great. I’ve had this stove for years and it’s never let me down. It’s light weight and easy to maintain and with the MSR fuel bottle has a decent amount of burn time. If you want a stove that won’t let you down and can burn different types of fuel this is it. Awesome size and I’m surprised how long it lasts. Got this for Christmas and can’t wait to use it on a hike. I use it sledding in the back country and at work. Most versatile camping stove ever invented. The camping stove is pretty special – it is a clever design that allows it to be carried and used for both large and small cooking chores. The wire pot supports are great because they pack tight and yet fold open to a large flat stable surface. The stove also has a small but well positioned regulator that is much more robust than it appears. The killer app is the fuel tank – burning both camp fuel and/or white gas is a great trick, especially when getting more fuel on a trip is in question. Bought it 3 years ago, I have used it consistently in the summer and winter as I guide. Keeps working in the winter at 20 below. Burns hot and loud, and is very sturdy. Very Versatile, Love it! I bought this stove a few years ago and it is awesome. I’ve used it countless times on the trail and back at home. I love the fact that it can be used for so many different fuels. I have even used it with diesel fuel, although diesel burns really dirty and carbons up the stove, but works just fine. Compact enough, but sturdy enough for a nice size pot. Highly recommend this one. Although this stove is heavier than some on the market, I truly appreciate the ability to precisely control the flame— from a roaring inferno to a simmering low. Great stove to have if you are planning to cook for a group because it has a wider support for a pot than many other stoves. Cant get any better for its intended use. I have had the Dragon Fly for 3 years now. I COULDNT BE HAPPIER!!! This is the stove I take out for multiple days backpack camping. (not thru hiking) This stove is awesome. Easy to use great flame adjustment and fuel efficient. If your going mountaineering, expedition type trips you can count on this stove. For you bush crafter survivalists you may want to give this a look. The multi fuel uses make it very versatile. I do wish MSR would come up with a Ti pot with bail handle and lid to nest this inside. The one you can rely on. The best compact stove i have ever used. This is a stove you can truly rely on with it counts the most. When your life just might depend on it, always choose MSR. I’ve owned my dragonfly for about 10 years and have used it kayaking, hiking, and on bike tour. I think the bulk of this stove is more than offset by the versatility. For bonus points, pull up on your bike and have a gas station attendant in Oregon fill up your 20 oz canister for you best 50 cents I ever spent, and he got a great laugh out of it! Runs great on gasoline as well as white gas, the gasoline is a bit sootier, but the convenience is a great plus when you’re on the road. Have not had the occasion yet to try running kerosene or diesel, although I can imagine those would be sootier yet. Cons: As others have said, this stove on full blast will wake up the camp. I just curl my ridgerest sleeping pad around it to muffle the noise if I need to. The main con for me is that one of the pot support bails has broken in the middle of the bend. It still supports pots and the stove, but it’s a little wobbly. Knowing MSR’s customer service I’m sure they would fix it for me, I just haven’t gotten around to sending it in. You have great control adjusting the flame, so you can sauté, boil, and simmer whatever you heart desires. But be warned: this little beast can get a bit loud when turned all the way up, so it will definitely make heads turn. It also has a great set of legs that make me feel confident my pot wont tip over. Perfect for long adventures at altitude. I used this on several treks in northern New Mexico, 14ering in Colorado, and alpining in Germany. At all elevations it never failed me. Always got my water boiling and my food warm. It’s a really satisfying sound when it turns on. Sort of like a jet engine. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a top of the line stove. Actually stays stood up! I bought this around 5 weeks ago for use in the Lake District, it’s great! It’s not like others, it’s a good size for portability and it’s actually stable when you set it up! Great product, really happy! Durable, Easy Care, Lasts Forever. I have had this stove for YEARS, almost 10 I think. It is so durable and maintenance and care has been so easy, I use white gas and it still works like new. I now have three of these stoves. I bought my third one of these for emergency purposes but the other two I bring when I go car camping and to the backcountry. Not once have they failed me, and I don’t take care of them that well. I can pump and primer and get them going quite easily. They simmer which is nice when you need to cook a rice dish as it requires low and constant heat. For boiling water I was in a cold snap at Pinnacles National Park and within 5 minutes I had boiling water from a frozen bottle. Do get me wrong these are loud but it helps me wake up in the morning when I’m watching the sunrise. Paired with the MSR bottles and you are ready. I have had to use alternative fuels in other countries and it burned those just fine. So throw at it what you want the dragonfly is my favorite and only stove I bring with me camping. Got one for Christmas in 1998, and it has been my standard mode of outdoor cooking since. I have owned my dragon fly for about 10 years. I guided groups in the Rockies and needed a lightweight compact, stable stove that could boil water in a large group pot. It performed well on every occasion. One of the things I really like about this stove was the ability to simmer. Important when you are cooking cinnamon buns in the backcountry. It kept everything together. Would recommend it for any weekend warrior or for anyone on extended trips. This design has been around for a long time. It’s highly reliable and easy to maintain. I have used this for stove for years without any problems. Best backpacking multi fule stove. I’ve had this stove for 2years and has been very good to me. Works perfectly at any elevation or temperature and has very low maintenance. I would defiantly suggest this stove to people who are just getting into backpacking or have been backpacking for year’s. Solid, time tested performance. I’ve had my Dragonfly for about 6 months now and I can’t ask for much more from it. Yes some are a little quieter or pack slightly smaller, but you can’t deny the solid, time tested performance from this stove. It’s durable and lights with ease every single time. I’ve used it to simmer chili or quick boil water with great results. The adjustability is second to none. The stove is stable and I wouldn’t hesitate to put a 10-12′ pan on it. The ONLY thing I’d ask for is a little less noise, but in this case the noise brings alot of power behind it, like the exhaust on a muscle car. Had for a little over a year now. All I’ve used in it is the superfuel, aside from about 5 minutes on has and 5 minutes on high % alcohol(was in a bind). It burns amazingly clean and hot, and the flame control is uunparalleled. Only drawback is it’s a tad loud when it’s on full power, but it can also boil water in less than a minute. Would recommend to anyone. Had this stove for almost 15 years. It’s variable heat and fuel options make it a great choice for backcountry cooking. It’s wider base makes it great for cooking with larger containers too. I also own the pocket rocket. Between the two, I’ll probably never need anything else. Super versatile and easy to use. The MSR Dragonfly is a mainstay of back-country hikers everywhere for good reason. It’s simple (sets up in under 2 minutes), it’s reliable (made of metal, and easy swap or repair parts), and it’s incredibly versatile it’ll burn pretty much any fuel you have available. It’s been an integral part of my kit for years, and I expect that it will remain so for years to come. Just What I Was Looking For. A stove you could boil water and cook on. The flame can be regulated between simmer and boil. Great quality, looks like it will last a long time. I have had the stove over six months now and have used about every other weekend. The Dragonfly is a powerful and versatile stove that can be adjust from low simmer to high heat and can use different fuel. I’ve uses mine with regular 87 gasoline, which is said to no be as clean as white gas, but I have yet to see any problem. The set up of the Dragonfly is very stable and can support a lot of weight. But with these versatile pros, this stove is very loud and is heavier than other backpacking stove. It’s a trade off I’m okay with. I used this product in -30 degree weather to cook and heat water. Absolutely wonderful, fuel can get cold but can’t control that. Great Stove with some drawbacks. I’ve had a Dragonfly as my primary backpacking stove for about two years, so I’ve take it on about 8 trips. The thing works very well at low and high temperatures, able to sprint to a boil or hold at a low simmer. The main drawbacks I cite to friends are the awkward placement of the priming cup, making it awkward to light with a normal lighter, and the noise of operation since at full tilt it can sound similar to a prop plane. The flame of the stove also hits the pan in a tight circle, not spreading out the heat as much as other stoves can potentially resulting in burned food if one isn’t careful. I’ve had this stove for a few years now and feel comfortable writing a review. Have had no issues what so ever, bought the expedition repair kit to take out with, but have never needed to use it. Flame control is fantastic. Small enough to take backpacking with my son, powerful enough to be all we need car camping with a family of four. Doesn’t nest as well as smaller stoves, but I’m more than happy to give it the space in my pack. It is rather loud, but other than that it’s perfect. I’ve taken this stove on many many adventures for over 4 years now. It’s dependable, versitle, fast when you need it, simmers if you need it. It’s a rockstar. Probably a little heavy for some folks, but it’s been one of my favorite pieces of gear for a long time now. Had this stove for over 20 years , has never failed me!! Adjustable heat, go to stove. I’ve now had it for about 5 years and it’s still my go to, for back packing and backcountry hunts. It’s also great for making my favorite, jiffy pop. It just keeps on working every time. Even in cold temps here in Ak. It has functioned flawlessly with minimal maintenance. In fact the original seals are in place and nothing is leaking. Bought a service kit so I’ll service the unit this winter. Some complain about the noise, I claim it’s a great bear deterrent! Doesn’t bother me or my companions a bit. Love this unit – recommended!
