MSR's WindPro II Stove offers all the awesome features of the original WindPro, with the added ability to burn in liquid-free mode. This MSR stove can be run in a traditional upright mode for the best efficiency and flame control, or the fuel canister can be inverted on the included stand to deliver gas directly to the burner. Using the WindPro II with the canister inverted diminishes relying on the internal canister pressure, which in turn improves performance in cold weather and when the fuel is running low, and help increase stove output when you're pressed for time.
The MSR WindPro™ II backpacking stove maintains the efficiency and versatility of the original WindPro while adding the ability to burn inverted fuel canisters for cold-weather performance.

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
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.
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.
Our Scout troop purchased 3 of these stoves from BC for a week's hiking trip to the Appalachians. All 3 crews were impressed with the light weight and ease of operation as compared to our older white gas stoves.
What could be easier than screwing on the canister, turn the gas on and light...you're cooking. Also, we like the safety factor.
Backcountry also deserves 5 stars as they were very fast and accomodating with our purchase. Thanks BC!
