Features: Extendable ground pegs for stability
*Recommended to be used with a Solo Stove (sold separately)
"Very effective. Adding in your windscreen helped me achieve faster boil times and cut down on the amount of fuel I used."
How it Works
The Solo Stove Aluminum Windscreen is meant to work in conjunction with our wood burning Solo Stove. Added protection against the elements will allow you to achieve faster boil times. With the wind blocked, efficiency increases and you'll also use less fuel for each burn. The extendable ground pegs allows for a stable setup. The 8-panel design allows you to configure the windscreen in a number of shapes and folds together nicely after each use.

There's always at least a breeze blowing in my neck of the woods. I have several small Esbit stoves and a Solo Titan stove. These screens block the wind so flames don't blow to one side, or constantly change direction. Great for a steady and efficient cooking fire, plus the screen is simple to configure to just about whatever shape you need. Folds up into a nice flat package when done.

The hinge pins are a stiff piece of wire with a crook at the top and run the length of the screen. They slide up and down real easy right now (being new), which will allow for disassembly or panel removal, etc. if desired. However, they will slide below the panels when handling, but create no problem when put in the pouch (at least as long as the pouch stays intact-I do think the those wires will eventually work through the cloth pouch and then the wire hinges will be vulnerable when sticking out the bottom-I reckon I might pad the bottom of the pouch). It is sturdier than expected and therefore heavier, which I like. I was worried of bending and binding, etc., but that should not be likely with a little TLC and when folded it makes a nice solid block of aluminum and less vulnerable to deformation. The height is what I would consider adequate, yet not too long to add weight needlessly. It fits nicely around the Solo stove I bought with it. It makes a good combo.

I've had the chance to use this now in many different situations. Rain, wind, camp, hike, motorcycle camping. It's super light, packs down very thin and works great. On the ends there are thin posts you can stick in the ground to help keep it from blowing over. Works great.

The windscreen worked perfectly. It is a bit heavy compared to some others I have used but this is not a really big deal because the overall weight of the stove and windscreen is negligible compared to a gas or butane stove with enough fuel for extended trips in the backcountry. The solo stove used together with the wind screen boiled five cups of cold well water with a moderate breeze blowing in 12 minutes. Amazing! I LOVE IT!! RMY Old Mtnman

I use this windscreen with my Solo Stove and it seems to help keep the stove sheltered so as to minimized heat loss from gusts of wind.

The unit is taller than I though it would be. Turns out that's a big plus when using it on windy days. It also directs more heat to the pot or cup.

As expected. This is a well made and relatively light weight Windscreen that I expect will provide many years of use.

This windscreen packs up small and light. Hardly noticeable in my pack. It works well for both my solo stove and other gas burning backpacking stoves. It stands up well and is stable in the wind and the extendible ground pegs anchor it securely. Took one star off because it seems that the extendible pegs will eventually rip the storage bag and possibly any fabric packed near it if not careful.

Tested my SOLO Stove out with, and without this windscreen in Jan 2014, during the 'Arctic Surge'. Tested at around 3600' above sea level in WV. Temperature was around 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Using this windscreen cut my boiling time almost in half. Screen is sturdy aluminum with two pins on the end panels that can be used as anchors in soft ground.

This folds into a very compact package. Each panel flip-flops to make a thin, flat board for storage. The end panels have longish pins that extend down about 2" so you can anchor this into the ground. There is also a nice fabric bag to hold and protect it. I'll admit I was hesitant to order this as it seems that it should be easy to duplicate it with something you could find. But I decided to go ahead on the theory that if it were needed it would be easier to use as it was made to work with my Solo stove. Because it is made of aluminum, it's not quite as sturdy as the other solo products, but it is still a quality product and should function well as designed.
