    May 2008 Adirondacks NY. Plan to hike 5 peaks in 3 days. Redfield, Gray, Marcy, Skylight and Cliff. 4′ Snow drifts still on trails. 6hr hike took 9hrs. Exhausted. No Redfield first day. MSR Dragonfly Stove works great. Original version w/ original pump. Dinner, Scotch, bed. Next morning evaluate trail to Gray & Mt. Marcy. NO GO. Crossing stream out of question. Too wide with still melting snow. Still 4′ drifts up main trail. Decide to hike Redfield and perhaps Cliff. Ready to eat breakfast. STOVE BROKEN!!!!!!!!! The old pump had cracked around the plunger coupling. Would not keep preasure. No stove, no eat, no hike. TRIP OVER.
    I swore I would never take this stove into the wilderness ever again. Someone bought me an Amazon gift card and I decided to buy the new pump just to see if it was superior to the last. It was inexpensive enough to try it. Glad I did. Serious improvement from last version. The MSR Dragonfly is an excellent stove but the pump is the biggest concern because it is made of plastic. I bought another one as an on the trail back up. I wouldn’t go into the woods without the repair kit for the stove and the extra pump. Worked fine with the original Dragonfly stove and fuel canisters (which was a concern I had when buying it). LET ME REPEAT THAT SINCE I HAD A SERIOUS TIME FINDING ANY FEEDBACK OR INFORMATION THAT SPELLED THAT OUT CLEARLY ENOUGH:

    THE NEW PUMP WORKS WITH THE OLD/ORIGINAL DRAGONFLY STOVE AND FUEL CANISTERS.

    Hope that is a good enough review for those of you who are considering buying this pump.

    I purchased my MSR Dragonfly stove in 1998. The original pump developed a crack in the fuel valve housing after limited use. (See my pictures). I suspect it was stressed in cold weather when performing routine field maintenance. I continued to use the pump despite the crack for many years (I know – stupid!). However I recently discovered that MSR had redesigned the Dragonfly’s pump and decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did.

    Without going into the specifics of the redesign, suffice it to say this pump is much more robust than the original design. (See my comparison pictures). It looks like it will take many years of use and abuse. Plus, as an added (and unexpected) bonus, the pump ships with a replacement heat reflector and windscreen! That item sells for $10-$15 at most retails and was a nice added surprise.

    MSR products are pricey, but I expect them to last for decades. This new design looks like it will.

    After many years of use, the original pump finally failed on a winter trip. It was very cold, and the stove’s fuel tube froze to the pump fitting, and completely cracked when I tried to remove it – basically rendering the pump useless.

    This newly designed pump is fantasitc. It’s first trip was also in the winter, but even colder. Morning temps were zero degrees, in the sun! This pump (& stove) worked flawlessly. The material is better. The engineering is better. The overall performance is better. It’s even more ‘field’ serviceable than the previous unit.

    5 stars indeed.
