windproof camping stove

I've always struggled to boil a kettle while camping on a windy day, going to buy a new camping stove soon but didn't know if any of you lot have found a good solution? I was thinking about a metal wind break thing

Thanks

Pikey Dave's got A cracker which he uses while out on the rib for afternoon tea in all weathers, he even brewed up while hadd was fighting rough waters of south stack to catch up with us on the round Anglesey fishing trip last year ...served in china cups as well with home made fruit cake I might add. Very posh, for Pikey's anyways

That sounds ideal

At the moment I've been using one of these, it's great but too high up when windy...

Next time you're over mate, have a look at my 2 burner Coleman stove. it's fantastic and it's got it's own inbuilt wind shield.

]Coleman Unleaded 2 Burner Stove - Only 97.20 - Poingdestres

Don't run them on petrol though-use Aspen 4t, which Handy garden Machinery sell.it's about 13.5 quid for 5 litres but it still works out cheaper than using a gas cannister, uses less fuel than on petrol and gives more heat. 5 litres lasts me about 3 to 4 weeks camping.

Don't run them on petrol though-use Aspen 4t, which Handy garden Machinery sell.it's about 135 quid for 5 litres but it still works out cheaper than using a gas cannister, uses less fuel than on petrol and gives more heat. 5 litres lasts me about 3 to 4 weeks camping.
Totally Agree, I use one for fishing, and am very happy with it. I do run it on unleaded, and have no problems. When i take the missus with me for a week or 2 carp fishing, it is amazing what you can cook on them. I even have a small collapsable oven, which sits on the burners, and is great for cooking toad in the hole!

Would reccomend them without any problems.

If you just want to boil water get a jet boil it's a proper piece of kit
