I'm really excited by this new find in the US, which we've exclusively imported into the UK!

This is the same aluminum foil material which comes with the White Box Stove and makes the perfect windshield.

Thickness .16mm or 0.06th of an inch.

What makes it so exciting? It is extremely thin and therefore extremely light. The supplied in either 500mm x 300mm sheet is 63g or 1000mm xc 300mm at 126g! It can be cut with scissors, torn by hand, hole punched with an office punch, and any sharp edges can be bent back with your finger tips.

It holds its shape as a large item, but really I see this as being very, very popular with users of the Triad or similar meths stoves, or esbit/hexamine cookers. It won't last forever, but it will easily give you a season's use before you need to replace it.

Therefore you can custom make the perfect windshield for any cooker, which has two advantages of being (a) very light, and (b) able to be folded down and stored in your mug or cooking pot.

Just brilliant!!!

Two lengths available;

500mm x 300mm

1000mm x 300mm

Dimensions

Size: 500mm x 300mm
Weight: 63g
Thickness: .006 inch

 

Please note: This superlight windshield equates to 419 g/sqm.

Promptly dispatched and the foil was just the right weight to work with. Found a biro very useful for scoring folds to edges.

No more wind problems for me

Followed the online tutorial and made a clip on wind shield for a 650ml pot to use with a Meths Alpkit Bruler ( I could have bought The pocket stove as a Ti alternative I suppose!). The same pattern cut for the 650ml will stretch around a 900ml pot to give 270 deg of protection. Feel like a proper MYOG Guru now (MYOGG?) as this works really well, is light and folds down to pack away neatly. The stove is like a meths jet boil! Will use this set up for bike packing.

Windshield is useful
Sunday, 23 August 2015  | 

Just spent a week on a windy field cooking variously with a Honey Stove and a medium sized Trangia, often with a billy on top of it. This windshield is the biz: with twigs or a meths burner it really increases the efficiency of the Honey Stove - it makes a real difference in the efficiency sticking a big pan on top of a Trangia as well. On the stove I can also balance a Trangia lid on top of the shield to keep the rain out.
I needed to get the angle right with the shield and the stove so as not to starve it from air: I might try and stick a few one-inch holes near the base to make this easier. A slightly larger version would make sense.

Brilliant service

I ordered the super thin windshield and it arrived the next day. Loved the prompt, personalised service, including the pack of Skittles sweets included! Windshield arrived in good condition and as-described and is prefect for use with my Wild Woodgas stove and/or Pocket Rocket. I trimmed/rounded the sharp edges and punched two holes either end and attached some wire to help hold the windshield secure around the stove. I hope it will serve us well on our GR11 thru hike this summer.

None of the shields you can buy work at all well in my experience or last very long. Customising your own is the way to go. This is just the right thickness, double it up if you want a bit more strength - perfect.

Perfect foil

Arrived as a sheet which is folded a couple of times but the folds are not creased so they roll out. Two wind shields and two pot lids made so far and with some to spare. Great product.

Cheap, simple, adaptable - this windshield does all that I wanted it to do, without fuss or bother.
5 stars also to Backpacking Light. I've bought from them before and shopping with them is exactly the same as the windshield - no fuss, no problems, a good experience.
I really like the extra touch of adding a pack of wine gums with the order. These guys really want the customers to have a smile on their faces - well, this one has!!

Not used the windshield yet but from correspondence I'm very pleased with backpackinglight so much that I've made another purchase a few days later. And without hesitation I'll be coming to first before looking elsewhere for future purchases in this field.
Well done guys.
