Most Helpful Customer Reviews
MSR stoves come with this windscreen, and if you're buying a new one, it's probably because you lost your old one. Windscreens are certainly vital for saving on fuel, and I imagine that many users have noticed how drastically cooking times are affected by the placement of a windscreen or the lack of one entirely.
Well, if you have the cash, by all means go with MSR. However, for those who know how the windscreen that came with their stove looked, I'd encourage you to simply make your own for pennies, as it's simply a cut and folded piece of aluminium. Your area hardware store can help. MSR makes quality products, but the pricing of this idea is risibly high.
A windscreen is essential for the operation of the wisperlite stove in anything stronger than a mild breeze, otherwise cooking time is noticeably affected. This screen is however rather flimsy, (very expensive for what you get). It would appear to be not too durable especially for any long hike as the screen is bound to be folded in your pack and time will tell how many folds and unfoldings it will be able to withstand before weakening along the fold lines. It also needs a paper clip or something to "keep it together" when in operation unless you fold the "wings" together...more fold lines!!It would help if the new stove "Blurb" mentioned that it comes with a screen as well.
So far this wind screen have served me well for over 4years, it's dirty but it works great with my Dragonfly, especially in high winds. It can be necessary to keep the stove lit when stating it up(before I can get strong blue flames going), it also increases heating efficiency which saves fuel.
It's indestructible if it's used right. A tip for packing up: I wrap mine around the 22oz fuel bottle to avoid folding it(which otherwise would eventually weaken from the stress of folding.)
Luckily I've searched the web and found a killer deal($4) But I'm sure anyone can make this with a little bit of medium weight flexible aluminum.
The package contains 1 rectangular piece that wraps around the base of my stove and part of the pot, and 2 different kinds of circular base pieces, one of them for laying on the ground and placing your stove on top, and another with a hole in the middle, I imagine is built for smaller natural gas stoves that reflect the head away...
