Ok so in California the wind picks up in the afternoon & evening hours so just when your ready to cook out after a long beach day. .your fire can't get going. ..well here comes the camp stove windshield. ..put around the stove and use the stakes that come attached to secure in the ground. .simple. .anyone can use. I'm grateful for heat and dinner on windy nights. Great gift idea for campers OR hunters. Included was a carry case that had a secure closure.
In the spirit of full disclosure,I received this product free in exchange for my review.
This is a great tool. I'm glad I found it -- I usually end up cobbling together something to do the same job. This has several advantages over my improvised solutions.
- It's metal, creating a lower risk of fire spreading.
- The metal is aluminum, which is light.
- It has little wire stakes, which easily slip into the ground, anchoring it and giving stability.
- It has a nice workspace inside.
- It folds compactly for storage.
- It has it's own storage case.
The picture I'm attaching shows the windshield around a wingstove with a small (6") cast iron skillet on top. The windshield can be configured larger than this -- you just set it how you want it.
I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest review. Any opinion expressed is mine alone.
The unit is just as described, it was well package, comes with a handy bag (which i personally appreciate) and the delivery service was as promised.
I am really happy with the size and weight of this stove windshield! It's super light and folds practically flat so it stores easily and takes up very little room when packing for a camping trip. It's not terribly high (just over 10") but it blocks the wind great when starting a campfire. Depending on the size of the fire you may want to take the shield down after you get the fire going....just so it doesn't get hot to the touch then you won't be able to move it! It will wrap almost completely around a small camp stove, or can be used to block ind on 1 side for a large fire. There are metal pegs at each end that you just push into the dirt to secure the windshield.
I used this windshield when my son had friends over to make smores. I felt much better about having kids near the fire knowing the shield was between them and any embers/flames. I will definitely get a lot of use from this item.
