MSR's next-generation WindPro™ II stove combines all of the features of the original WindPro such as efficiency, versatility, and ease of use with the ability to burn in liquid-feed mode. The liquid feed mode lets you run the stove in traditional upright mode for optimal efficiency and flame control or, with a simple twist, invert the canister on the included stand to deliver liquid gas directly to the burner. This increases cold-weather and low-fuel performance as well as stove output making the WindPro ™II the stove you can depend on. It's easy to use, no preheating or priming and the flame is easily adjustable from a steady simmer to a full boil. It provides excellent stability with larger pots, meeting the demands of both professional mountain guides and those who refuse to compromise their culinary standards in the backcountry. At a weight of just 6.6 oz., the WindPro ™ II is one of the lightest stoves on the market! Fuel canister not included.

MSR WindPro II Reviews:

Reviews:

I purchased this stove from a competitor simply because it was out of stock and have been impressed with it so far. It's an improved version of the windpro with a longer fuel line and a swivel that allows it to run with the canister inverted in a liquid feed mode. Supposedly this helps with cold weather performance. I ran it against my other MSR stoves to try to get a comparison of cold weather performance before i take it out with the scouts in the snow. I put each stove and fuel bottle in the freezer (0F) for 2 hours and timed the boil on a full nalgene of cold tap water in a 1.8liter GSI pinnacle dualist pot
wind pro 2 8:50
whisperlite international 3:45
dragonfly 4:50
pocket rocket 11 minutes
Of course the white gas stoves were by far the fastest but i was still impressed with the butane canisters. The liquid feed mode of the WP2 seemed to make a significant difference with a cold canister and the flame was noticeably stronger once inverted. I expected the dragonfly to do better compared to the whisperlite but i suspect its simply a matter of more effective flame dispersion over the narrow pot being used and the pot being closer to the flame on the whisperlite. Results may be different with the MSR alpine set.
For the weight and packability advantage as well as ease of use I'll be trying out the windpro 2 in colder weather this year. Certainly not the best winter stove i own but it's peaked my interest for sure.
Great stuff from MSR. I know they have their detractors but i've had nothing but good luck with all of their products and the WP2 looks to be no exception.

An already great stove - Improved

Several years ago I used a friend's original Windpro stove and really liked the way I could simmer foods without having the flame blow out. When I found out that MSR refreshed the model for 2012, I decided to buy the Windpro II. I recently went on a backpacking trip in the snow at an elevation of 10K feet. The stove worked very well in the cold weather and I was able to invert the fuel canister (running liquid fuel) and boil water in a few minutes.

I should note that the stove is a bit bulkier than other stoves. If you intend to only boil water or melt snow, I would recommend selecting a different stove such as the MSR Reactor. Also, while the Windpro II is not heavy, there are lighter stoves available (if weight is an issue). So far I've only used this stove for boiling water, but I look forward to using it to prepare other meals in the warmer months. This stove is ideal for simmering foods or cooking foods where temperature control is needed. A very good stove that just got better. Well done MSR.

Light, powerful and needs flat area.

Boils water in a jiffy especially with titanium. Does have the ability to simmer, but in an exposed place on a windy day it is tough - the windscreen is light, but not too effective in the wind. Its like cooking with a miniature jet engine in the inverted position, does make some noise but much improved boil time. You really need a flat spot, preferably a rock, to keep it stable while cooking. Cooking in an uneven spot on a windy day is tough. Skeptical about the bag it comes with, the stove seems pretty solid but I got a small, lightweight plastic box to keep the windscreen and reflective pad from getting bent out of shape. One small container of fuel lasts about half and hour using inverted about half the time on a hot Honolulu day a few hundred feet above sea level. Overall, for my uses its great considering it's weight and boil time and probably pretty good for most folks desiring those two qualities in the back country. Will update review after a stretch on the PCT this summer.

Stable, Good control, Cooks for a crowd

I selected this stove to bridge the gap between a servicible backpacking stove (light weight) and something suited to Moto and group camping where I'd want more control, stability, and user friendliness than is available from a canister-mount model.

The best part of the stove is its usability. The remote canister design allows me to use a windscreen & base reflector (thoughtfully included), which makes it much more efficient. It's stable, and I can adjust the flame while wearing gloves with no problem.

It packs reasonably well: After folding up the legs, I put mine into my tupperware bowl. It won't fit into as many places as a canister-top mini-stove, but it's servicible... & the price you pay for big-pot stability.

Even during inverted use (liquid flow mode) it still gave me great flame control, and I like being able to coax that last little bit of fuel from the canister.

It does a lot, with only a small compromise in weight. The added cold weather, high altitude performance makes those couple of ounces easier to bear.

Just about a perfect stove

I have been using this stove since 3/12. It has worked flawlessly in temp from 10F to in the 90s. MSR or Snowpeak fuel is a must in cold temperatures. Coleman fuel will not work below 35F, OK at warmer temps. Stove simmers like a dream. This is the perfect stove for those who like to do more than just boil water. I like to fix dumplings and pan cooked biscuits. The only thing I did not like about this stove was the price,but you get what you pay for. I had an MSR WhisperLite before, and it was OK as long as you only want to boil water, and setting the forest floor on fire isn't a problem for you. the stove fuel line developed a leak and MSR said it would cost me $20 to fix. WhisperLite is a pain to light in cold weather. WP2 in much better!

Love this stove

I recently bought this stove but have only taken it out one time so far- on an overnight trip on the approach trail to Springer Mountain in north Ga. I have the micro rocket stove as well and I'd say the Wind pro is better if you are trying to 'cook' things as the flame output is a bit wider than the micro rocket and more stable with a pot/pan on top of it. The temp control was excellent as well and I could keep a low flame/heat output with no problem as I fried some eggs and bacon.
If you want to boil water, it cranks up and does the job in no time too so no worries there. I like the versatility of being able to do both with ease.
I'm very happy with my purchase.
Runatlanta at REI on 04/04/2013
I just came back from a two week camping trip where I used this stove to cook two meals a day. It was exactly what I expected and wanted--a lightweight, compact cannister stove that sits solidly on the ground rather than precariously on top of the gas cannister (I like cannister stoves because they are easier to use than those which require a fluid, like white gas or gasoline, to be decanted into a fuel bottle, and the cannisters are at least as widely available as white gas). The cooking I do requires that I boil at most 2 1/4 cups of water at a time (which is sufficient to prepare a freeze-dried entree for two people) which it does quickly on the highest setting, but adjusts easily down to the low temperature necessary to cook pancakes.

Great Stove - Love It!

We use this stove for car camping. It fits inside our REI medium camping pots with room to spare, but not enough for a medium size fuel can as well. Temperature control is awesome. I have only had minor trouble with wind so far, and using the included windscreen fixed all problems. I originally bought this to replace a 2 burner camp stove and I wish I had done this sooner. It has more power and better heat control than my old stove. I have used it for boiling water, omelettes, scrambled eggs, gravy, biscuits, mac & cheese, etc. If it was a little smaller it would be great for backpacking. I will take this stove backpacking if there are several people in the group, but if alone I would take a water boiling stove only.

Wonderful Stove

I have found this stove to be a wonderful all-round stove. I think nothing of tossing it and a small kettle in my daypack for brewing up tea. It also goes along on winter expeditions when cold weather cancels out my other cartridge stoves. by simply inverting the cannister, with the included stand, I can boil away at below-freezing temps.

A windscreen is a must, and so it a heat reflector if you cook on delicate surfaces. It will fit onto MSR's Trillium stove base.

The only downside is that it gulps fuel when the cannister is inverted. But, given that you're only using the canister inverted WHEN YOU REALLY NEED TO, it shouldn't be a problem. In fact, I find this stove to be very efficient.

If I had to recommend someone purchase a single stove to cover the largest number of situations, it would be the MSR WindPro II. Hands down.
Need something that can actually simmer/cook food? Check.
Need something to boil water fast? Check.
Need something light-ish? Check.
Need something that can be effectively protected form the wind? Check.
Need something that can perform reasonably well in winter or colder weather, too? Check.
Need something that requires no maintenance and can keep going for years? Check.
This stove may not be the perfect choice for any single situation (I probably wouldn't bring it as my first choice on an expedition to Everest or as my super ultralight choice), but it does better than most in many circumstances and can cover just about any situation needed; and do it well.
