msr dragonfly reviewBy: robert franc on 7 September 2019Extremely happy with my current dragonfly. So much so i purchased another to replace a mint condition xgk. Its the simmer function of the dragonfly thats simply a hands down winner not only durring cooking but also shutdown. Minimised evaptorating fuel mixture. No more shellite or clean kerosene purging around the campsite. Okay the pumps aren't what they use to be in the 1990s. But 3 compatible service kits give me peace of mind. Strenght well a 15l stainless steel with 10l of water no issues on a sturdy surface. Heats up water faster than an xgk from my experience at Australian attitudes. Heats up a wok satisfactorily and thats a tall order cast iron pans no problems. Yes i made up a custom wind shield but the standard supplied windshield is prefered for hiking.
By: Michael on 6 July 2018I want to start by saying this stove is really great. The ability to control the flame is amazing for controlling how hard you cook your food, but more importantly it gives you an easy way to control fuel use. Rarely (if ever) do you ever need to use the stove on full throttle, with other MSR stoves that just isn't an option without fiddling with number of pumps/fraction of a millimetre valve turns. The negatives are there too though, and still need to be carefully considered. For example; even though this is one of the lighter MSR stoves, it's still heavy in comparison to trangia style alcohol stoves and isobutane burners. What worse is that the stove is very awkwardly shaped for packing. The absolute worst aspect of this stove to me is the sound though. From what I understand this is a problem with all liquid stoves, but even still this stove is very loud (even when running on the minimum setting). Some people find comfort in the sound of a small jet engine for cooking, personally it just makes me want to get my boiling/cooking done faster so I can turn it off. Overall, I personally place versatility in the variety of fuels you can use, the ability to control the flame, and how robust the stove is overall above the negatives of noise, weight, and awkward shape for packing. The reason I chose this stove over the Optimus Nova was due to the availability of spare parts.
Msr dragonflyBy: Taz on 7 July 2017Love it, its a beast and sounds great. Burns red hot folds fairly small perfect for my 4x4 and fishing trips around aus. Couldn't decide between this and the whisperlight but i am glad i got this for the easier simmering/diesel fuel ect option if needed. Wild earth bonus credit and special made this even more of a bargain purchase. Cheers.
MSR Dragonfly stoveBy: Dean Richardson on 16 December 2015Again I can not fault Wild Earth in the ease of ordering, and speed of delivery, keep up the great work. Took advantage of a special to purchase this stove, was a choice of this model of the international. The Dragonfly won as it has the extra control to enable simmering/ low heat. I've never used these stoves before but first time getting it going was easy. Makes plenty of noise while running which was expected. Like any MSR product it looks very well made and durable. Purchased for future bike touring as gas canisters are often impossible to find outside the city. Looking forward to years of use.
A Versatile little travellerBy: John on 6 October 2015MSA has a number of great hiking/camping stoves. The dragonfly is a little beauty. Multi fuel makes it very versatile. Very easy to set up and get to full burn. Excellent variable output. I havent found a better allrounder . Highly recommended
