Primus Windscreen

I will not recommend to use, does not do job good. Does not protect fire from wind. It is easy to set up, holds firmly. Unfortunately protection is too low and does not cover open fire, as result it does not work on average wind power. I have Primus stove with piezo, somehow it is impossible to use build-in igniter because there is no hole for finger next to piezo side. After several attempts to use it I drop this idea and bought new foil wind protection. Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Windscreen

The GigaPower stove is awesome all by itself. This screen just makes it even more efficient. It takes up very little volume in a pack as it rides flat under my cook pot. I have used and loved my GigaPower stove for several years without the screen. Last year my camping buddy gave me the screen as a birthday present. As other reviewers have stated, there is a minor fiddle factor to install. The legs have to be adjusted just right to put the screen in place, not quite fully open, but almost. Once… Full review

Primus Windscreen

Light, easy to carry wind screen to use with the smaller backpacker stoves that use canister fuel. The picture above isn't the one I'm using, will show a pic below. This is a really nice addition to my cook kit. I actually have two of these, buying the new one recently to go in my girls' kit. I'm trying to teach them to be self sufficient while backpacking, so I've set them up with the Primus ExpressStove¬†set you see in the pics below. I like how this wind screen nests inside the cook kit essentially… Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Windscreen

Bought this after about 6 months of using the stove with an extra MSR windscreen that I had, it worked OK. I should have gotten this 6 months ago. It fits in my GSI tea kettle along with the stove. The only problem I have had is the igniter would not work while the windscreen was on the stove, no spark. Took it into the garage and did a little Dremel work to widen the hole where the igniter comes through. Works like a dream now. Makes a good stove even better and everything fits in my kettle.

Ortik Heat-It

I tried for years to get one of these and last year I finally got my hands on one from Mountain Tools in Carmel, CA. The price is $79.95. This thing is awesome! Put your stove into it and hang it up somewhere and it cuts heating time dramatically even when it's not windy out. I would never take the chance on cooking in the tent before I got this but now there are no worries. Yeah it's expensive and not completely necessary for my use but it cuts down on boil time fuel usage and is totally cool to… Full review

Coghlan's Windscreen

Very effective due to the large size.  The only downside is that size carries weight.  Packs down fairly small. Full review

Snow Peak GigaPower Windscreen

There's really no reason why NOT to carry this windscreen in your kit. Snow Peak fuel canisters fit perfectly in the windscreen and if your cookset is large enough to carry your fuel canister inside, it's large enough to fit the windscreen. My windscreen fits nicely inside my GSI Pinnacle Dualist. I've read reviews where people complain that the removable slot for the Piezo ignitor is hard to open and close. I don't feel that I have gorilla hands or anything, but I was able to move the slot just… Full review

MSR Heat Exchanger

I have used this item for 10+ years. I've forgotten when I actually bought it. It does what it says it will do. It increases efficiency and saves fuel. It does work a bit as a windshield too but I wouldn't count on it for that in a strong wind. It is what it is, it's not designed for that. I didn't fully appreciate it till this year however. I forgot to pack it for a trip I took and it felt like it took forever to boil water without it. In my opinion it's worth its weight. Full review

Ortik Heat-It

I just got this new to the market stove shield but I am going to go out on a limb and call it an instant classic must-have for any extreme weather stove user, "HANDS DOWN!" Catchy headline: this is the coolest thing since the MSR Expedition stove. I would have mentioned the Isobutane stove, but this thing is revolutionarily simple to use, and at the time, the MSR was also. Initial Impressions: This is a lightweight modern (forward thinking) alpinist's solution to a time old problem; heating your… Full review
