  • Ultra-fast three-minute boil time makes heating water super-easy
  • Wide flame disperses heat for more even cooking
  • Full flame control knob lets you go from simmer to roaring boil in seconds
  • Optional push-button AutoStart ignition system gets the flame rolling without a lighter or matches
  • Optional AutoStart system re-ignites itself when partially blown out
  • Note: freezing temps can reduce the performance of canister stoves, so you may want to go with a liquid fuel stove for wintertime trips
  • Note: fuel canister sold separately

Love it

    Bought it for my son in law, he said it was compact and easy to carry for backpacking trips.

    First impressions

      The build appears very high quality. One downside is that the metal grill that holds up the pan are somewhat sharp and stick out when packed. I plan to make some kind of protective padding for it.

      50mph winds and -12 degrees

        My buddy and I went to Grayson Highlands during a record cold snap. Snow, high wind and frigid temps.

        We made it to camp and he had mentioned he would bring his white gas stove, because the temps were so cold. Well, I threw my SuperFly in my pack just in case. Well, his stove wouldn't light and the sun was setting and we started shivering.
        The SuperFly lit right up and we cooked our meals and then I quickly hunkered down in my tent.
        Spending 12 hours in the tent waiting on the sun to come up, I kept the canister in my bag with me and made tea a few times during the night and heated up breakfast.
        This stove worked like a champ and simmers low really well, so not to burn your food.
        Glad I brought this stove along....

        Just like home!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Great stove! Love the large diameter burner, this thing is like cooking on the gas range at home. The flame control is phenomenal as well!

        I paired this thing up with my Snow Peak Trek 900 and found the perfect backcountry set-up that allows me to make anything on my menu and packs down into one convenient little package all inside the Trek 900.

        Overall I love this stove set up and is now my go to stove.

        Just like home!

        Excited to use it!

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Just got my stove and it looks awesome. Super light weight and simple construction. Haven't used it yet, but once we get warmer temps I am excited to put this to use

        Less clogs than the other msr stoves

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I was indifferent to which stove I got since there are pros and cons to each. I have been very happy with this stove. I have never had a clog while my friends have had pocket rockets clog a few times.

        Worked we'll at 8000ft in the 35-40 ranges.

        For packing efficiency I screw off the top

        Great Investment!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Needed a bigger stove to take when backpacking with my three boys - this was perfect during a recent trip. Heats up quickly boiling water/cooking pasta. Flame can really be dialed down too - goes plenty low enough to cook pancakes and simmer beans! Wide pot supports make it plenty stable even with a full 2 liter pot on top! I like the fact that it can be used with multiple brands of canisters - had good luck with both the Jetboil and even some old GAZ canisters! This is my third MSR stove (whisperlight, pocket rocket, and Superfly) all have performed flawlessly! Great quality - I believe they are still built in the USA too! Good investment - like all MSR products! I'll pass this one down to my boys!

        Works Every Time

          Great stove that I've used for years. Has literally worked every time I've ever needed it too and I don't have anything negative to report on. It releases a little gas when you unscrew it but all my stoves do. I do like how small it is and it does a great job warming up my bigger pots and gets water boiling fast compared to my older stoves. You can't go wrong with the Superfly and I would defiantly recommend this to anybody who likes quality stoves that will last a long time. (I still use my Jetboil as my primary stove because I'm a solo hiker these days).

          reliable and light weight

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I have used this stove for years; it comes w/ me on every adventure. This one replaced my old Whisperlite and I've never looked back. I did however keep the wind shield and used it w/ the SuperFly. Woops, I melted the piezocrystal starter. As it turns out, this stove is engineered with a build in wind shield. I have never had a problem with the stove or the MSR Isofuel tanks; it is reliable in adverse conditions. When you pack the stove away, don't put it anywhere near your air mattress, the swivel style arms where you place your water pot can poke holes in your other gear.

          Great for the trail.

          Great stove with a big burner that still only weights in at 4.5oz!

          Great for the trail.

          Good stove

            Very good stove. It can be turned down to simmer low enough to keep from burning your noodles, or cranked up to boil cod water in just a few minutes. Used it on an 8 day self supported bike packing adventure in B.C. My partner had a Snow Peak GigaPower, also with an auto ignitor, and we did several two pot meals, so I got a good comparison. My thoughts: Both light easily. The GigaPower is smaller and comes with a little plastic case like the Pocket Rocket (which would probably be a better comparison)and is lighter than the Superfly, but you already knew that. The SuperFly simmers better. We got some onions burn-stuck to the bottom of the pan with the GigaPower, but never with the SuperFly. Both are impressive at full power, but the GigaPower boils water faster. I like the fuel control valve better on the MSR than the GigaPower, it feels more positive when shutting it off, and it folds up better. After a few uses the MSR's pot supports start to warp and become more difficult to swivel together, where the GigaPower's swivels are under the fire and therefore don't warp as bad. The SuperFly has a frightening habit of leaking gas when unscrewing it. I hate to say it, but this was designed to fit pretty much any canister, and it does - we used the Snow Peak ProIso canisters for both - but the one size fits all downside is that it doesn't fit as well as a purpose built screw-on fitting. If you are quick you can minimize the fuel leaking when unscrewing, but this trait was unsettling to me, especially when you forget and are taking this down when another stove is burning. Thankfully no fire ball erupted, but think before you dismantle. The final words: Good stove if you like to get gourmet in the woods. Simmers better than some others on the market and starts reliably. Take care when packing up and enjoy!

            Unanswered Question

            can multi mount be put onto a bivouac...

            can multi mount be put onto a bivouac stove(Gaz) so it can use the threaded fuel canisters? We cannot find gaz canisters in the US but love the bluet stove and small lanterns. Uses 270 plus gaz.

            is there an adaptor for the clip on system to convert it to the screw on?

            This stove rips

              Used it for the first time to make some soup for lunch during a ski trip. Just warmed up the fuel inside my jacket for a few mins and had no problems boiling a leiter of water. Def took 3 mins maybe even less. This stove is the $h!+, can't wait to take it backpacking this summer.

              This s#%t is HOT!

                Really, it's a good hot stove. I like the new school hook up. It only releases a little fuel into the air. No more "ok, hold your breath!"[unscrew]

                Awesome Little Stove

                  Does its job and does it well! You can't beat it when it comes to backpacking stoves

                  boils soup in just under 35 seconds

                    i have had this stove for going on about ten years now. It's been my go-to stove for almost all my backpacking adventures. i just now used it to heat up a can of soup for my lunch break at work. i timed the boil time of the soup, just out of curiosity, and was pleased to see it reach a nice roiling boil in about 35-40 seconds. i usually take one 8 oz canister with me for up to a 3-5 day trip and have never really run out while in the backcountry. after ten years my stove is still in great condition as well. it has the usual slight discoloration on the supports from being subjected to high heat for so much time. that certainly hasn't affected the performance one iota. i will continue to use this stove until it breaks, at which point i will promptly buy another one.

                    MSR Stove, Top Quality

                      i've had one for a couple years now and this stove top is far superior than any other i've seen. A bit pricy, and I wouldn't have splurged for this one if it wasn't given to me as a present by my awesome gf, but if you are looking for top quality and have the resources, go for it.

                      This stove works with a bottle Campingaz?
                      the bottle is this:

                      Best Answer

                      Yes, the MSR multi-mount interface adapter on the Superfly stoves will work with the Gaz easy-clic valve on the 270 and 470 plus canisters.

                      My stove is brand new but the auto igniter...

                      My stove is brand new but the auto igniter won't lite the stove.

                      Sometimes the tip or mount of the igniter gets a little tweaked or twisted and ends up too far away from the burner head to arc properly. Try gently moving it a bit closer and hit the switch. If that doesn't do it, it's going to be a warranty issue and you should get it replaced.

                      Best Answer

                      Try lighting the stove with a pot/pan on top. This creates more concentration of gases around the electrode.

                      I didn't even think to ask- At what altitude are you trying to use it? If you're above 8000ft, that could also be the problem.

                      Very true, however I'm a bit luckier. My ignitors work successfully up to 10,000 feet before they crap out.

                      I have had a number of appliances that are supposed to work with the self-igniter. Virtually every one of them have failed within three days of using them the first time. Maybe I am just throwing off strong vibes that break them hahaha but I would advise just buying the item without them and use a small bic. Works virtually every time. Break those piezo pieces of crap off and rest your mind and the fraction of an ounce it loses will rest your back.
