MSR Fuel Bottle.
The MSR Fuel Bottle is the ideal solution when you need extra fuel on your camping or hiking trips. It is made from a single impact-extruded aluminum piece, that prevents leakage and cracks. This bottle also has a bolstered shoulder and base, that is resistant to bulging when it is pressurized. It features a child resistant packaging (CRP) cap and is safe to take on family excursions. An air-tight seal prevents air from contaminating the fuel, keeping it ready when you need it. It quickly connects to the pump of the MSR Stove, for all your outdoor cooking requirements. This bottle is available in a range of lightweight sizes (11 oz. bottle - 2.8 oz., 22 oz. bottle: 4.9 oz., 33 oz. bottle: 7.3 oz.) and is very useful when you run out of fuel or to prepare a hot meal.

The MSR Fuel Bottle is designed to work in tandem with all MSR liquid-fuel stoves (sold separately). Made from a single piece of impact-extruded aluminum to prevent leaks and cracks, the Fuel Bottle is bolstered at the shoulder and base to resist bulging when pressurized.
These fuel bottles are designed specifically to accept the threads on MSR fuel pumps and to easily handle the pressurization you need to efficiently operate MSR liquid fuel stoves.
The MSR Fuel Bottles work specifically with MSR stoves. They are built to withstand the pressure of the Whisperlite, XGK, Dragonfly and other liquid fuel MSR Stoves

These things have been around forever.. for a reason. Bomber construction and pretty much your only option for liquid fueled MSR stoves. I have one of each size which gives a lot of versatility. Being in Utah, I tend to be backpacking over 10,000' pretty frequently - I've found that the small bottle lasts 2 nights x 2 people and the medium lasts 3+ nights x 4 people. This is for cooking home-dehydrated meals - I'm sure you'd get more mileage if only boiling water. The large size is great for larger groups/ longer trips to carry fuel. I don't tend to run a stove off the large bottle if I can avoid it - it takes a lot more pumping to keep the bottle pressurized if it's half empty with a huge airspace inside the bottle, especially at higher elevations.
These fuel bottles are the only ones that don't leak when the temps get high in the desert. I prefer the 11 oz for my light and fast solo trips, or for my overnight alpine climbs. Plenty of fuel to last you for days and it doesn't end up weighing any more than the two canisters you'd have to bring. I even still have bottles from the 80's that have zero problems. I always carry a small cap (the non-childproof one) in my bag in case my pump starts leaking. Almost zero extra weight and no extra bulk. Love these things.
These things do their job and then some! I have taken them everywhere, and they have held up through everything. A friend of mine had one in his trunk when he got rear-ended, and although it got smashed in, it still pressurized and worked the next time! These work with most stove fittings. As a plus, you can slap a goat on these too!

I also have the dragonfly stove and these bottles are great. I am not the kindest to my equipment and have never had a problem with these bottles at all. As a father of 3 and 6 year old little boys the child proof cap is welcomed as they go with me all the time. I don't use a bear container to keep the bears out of stuff, I use it to keep "Sticky"(my 3 year old) out of stuff. Ken
Durable, different enough from a water bottle that no one drinks out of it, No leaking problems. Childproof cap is nice. Even if you don't have children, it prevents the cap from loosening when crammed in your pack on a rough trail. MSR knows what they are doing!
I haven't had any issues with any that I have owned.. I have every size and they all seem to be great.
It would be kinda hard to screw something up that is so basic. The safety style caps are fine just like the regular non safety style.
Never had an issue with these bottles. The three sizes make fuel reserving and use easy: 22 or 32 as backup, with an 11 for most cooking and trips. The 32 fits well in oversized bike bottle cages for bike touring too.
These bottles do what they need to do so there really isn't much that needs to be said about them. They hold fuel and feed it to the stove. If you have an MSR liquid fuel stove you need one anyway.
I have extensive use of these bottles with both the traditional cap and child cap with both Whisperlites and Dragonflies, I'm quite disappointed in the child safety caps, they are a pain to use and the original caps are much more reliable, the original cap makes it 5 stars, the child cap is barely a singe star.
