Backpacking Light Titanium Foil Windscreen - SMALL

4" x 24" titanium foil windscreen for alcohol and solid fuel (Esbit) stove users.

Overview

Titanium foil windscreen (4" high x 24" long), with pre-punched holes for ventilation, that can be cut to size as needed.

Applications. The titanium foil windscreen is intended to be used with alcohol stoves and solid fuel tablet stoves.

Advantages of Titanium Foil. Springy material rolls easily for better storage and more precise and even ventilation around the cookpot. Can be made thinner for far more strength and heat resistance than aluminum, and for far less weight than stainless steel foils.

Disadvantages of Titanium Foil. While titanium foil can be folded, it will not regain its shape after folding, and it cannot be "crushed."

Storage. This windscreen is intended to be rolled during storage. At 3.75" high, it fits into many cooking mugs and small pots, or can be trimmed in height to fit. Other places it can be stored: secured with a rubber band around a circular water bottle or cookpot, stored in a fishing rod tube, etc.

In Use. The titanium foil length (provided as 24") should be trimmed to fit your cooking pot. Leave some extra length to allow for some overlap, but giving 1/4" to 1/2" of ventilation space around the circumference of the cooking pot. More space provides better "chimney" venting and faster burn times, less space provides more controlled ventilation and usually, better fuel efficiency. The edges can be secured with a paperclip, or, the windscreen ends can be crimped to provide a self-fitting tab on each end for security. Experiment with your desired configuration before cutting the windscreen!
