Little plastic cup not included, it is used to prop the V1 up so I can show the legs deployed. As far as I know this is the original stove that the MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe is based off of but with some slight differences. The legs are definitely different and the burner head is coated with a black ceramic substance like the Soto Micro Regulator and Windmaster. The head doesn't really oxidize beyond the little piezo element on the top. It was referenced over in this thread, where I first learned about it: MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe Kovea definitely won't sell you the parts for it to turn a Pocket Rocket Deluxe into the same configuration and it isn't sold in the US because they likely have a licensing agreement with MSR. If you have friends or want to shop overseas in Korea, Taiwan, Thailand or Russia you can probably get one with the cost of shipping hurting a bit. It should be functionally identical beyond the legs. I noticed that the legs don't really heat up at full power, the way they're angled prevents them from actually heating up too much beyond the tips. If I get a chance I'll take a photo of the flames but the lowered center prevents the flame from touching the parts of the legs near the burner head. By the time the flame makes it out to the edge it gets cooled to the point that they never glow. The legs seem to be coated with some kind of treatment that blackens them. There is also a little quirk: The legs rotate out before rotating into position. The stationary leg that doesn't rotate out actually sits a little "proud" due to a little piece of metal in the notch that it goes into. When a load is put on it, the leg deflects a little and "engages" the burner rim, making it level with the other 2 legs which don't have that deflection. When I first saw that the leg saw proud, I thought I had a defective stove until I noticed with some sufficiently heavy mass it would level out rather than have one leg sit proud. The legs are quick to fold out and provide a really wide diameter base. Unfold the legs into the raised position then rotate them out by pulling the furthest one (on the "right side") around and it deploys. I liked it more than the MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe and had to get the V1 purely to collect it. There's about a 1/2" gap between the burner and the pot from the center. The Soto Amicus that I own has around a 3/8" gap. I talked to a Soto rep at one point and brought up the MSR PRD and the gap distance (between the PRD/V1 and the Amicus as well as Windmaster) and they believe that it is because of carbon monoxide that the PRD/V1 needs more of a gap between the bottom of pot. This is purely hearsay that I am passing on from a conversation with the rep. No stuff sack, you get a nice metallic tin (that is a little hard to open due to the fit of the lid, also definitely weighty for what it is) with two pieces of foam or neoprene inside. The lower piece of foam in mine got bumped loose during transit but it sits back in just fine with something like a flashlight to smush it flat.
