Rated 4 out of 5 by from nyc I have used this screen for over a year now. I am very confused at the complaints. Too heavy? Its 2 oz, the lightest/most compact screen out on the market. Too difficult to put on? It takes me about 5 seconds to put on. And once on its stable. This screen and the titanium stove is what made the Snow Peak my favorite. Another great thing is the design. Its helps shield the flame from the canister, which traditional windscreendo not do. Traditional screens can not be used with canister stoves because it heats up the fuel. So why didn't I give it 5 stars? Because the edges are not folder back. Its not sharp, but I do carry it in a ziplock bag just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worthwhile investment Bottom line: You've already got the Snow Peak Giga Power Stove, now get the Windscreen. With the Windscreen, fuel efficiency improvement is significant. Time to boil a pot of water is noticeably reduced, especially in a breeze or wind. The Windscreen slips on and off the four stove wires without a problem. I don't leave home without it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The pros outweigh the cons If you own the Giga Power stove, you need this windscreen. Sure, it's a little heavier than I'd like, but at 2 ounces it's still pretty light (in fact, it's lighter than most store-bought windscreens I know). And if you camp in a windy area, you will more than make up for it with the weight of fuel you save! I am always amazed at how much this windscreen increases the efficiency of my stove. It makes the stove pretty much wind-proof, which is more than can be said about most canister stoves. I don't always carry this windscreen, especially when I am hiking in areas where I know I'll find shelter from the breeze. But I carry it whenever I think it might encounter wind. The convenience more than makes up for the weight and slight bulkiness.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fussy to Get On the Stove I just got this tonight, so caveat emptore: I haven't used it yet. But I found it takes some fussing to get it on the stove. I'm not sure I'd want to play around this much with it, in cold weather. Perhaps, though, it's just because I'm new to it and to the Giga Power stove (I have the stove with the piezo igniter). It was hard to slide the piezo slot cover out of the way so it would fit down over the igniter and pot supports. Will give it a try, anyway, because the other reviewers said it's a necessary piece of equipment. I do think it would be great if it came in titanium. I would recommend it, once I figure it out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improves performance in wind Just used this on a breezy, long weekend at the WA coast. It definitely improves stove efficiency, especially in windy and breezy conditions. It seems to improve efficiency even in the absence of wind, because it reflects more heat back up to the pot. The only drawback was moving the tab to make room for the piezo igniter: it was a little tricky being so small and a little sharp, but I only had to do it once, so no big deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well, needs minor mod Easy to install: screw Gega-Power stove onto fuel canister, fully open pot support arms, THEN - move each arm back in 1/8", NOW wind screen will just drop down onto stove, then open the support arms back to fully open. Problem: When the screen was mounted on my stove, the screen would not allow the pot support arms to fully open. It was close, but I noticed my cook pot always seemed a little out of kilter. The slots in the screen (the suppot arms reached through) did not extend as far out as the arms wanted to go. I modified my screen's slots a little (extended them), then OK. I find he wind screen to be light weight. My Gega Power stove (in it's little plastic box) weighs 127 grams, and my modified wind screen is 55 grams. A full 4oz fuel canister wieghs 230 grams, and will last longer using the wind screen. All in all this wind screen is well worth carrying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ignition with the wind screen The thing to remember while using the wind screen is to fully open the latch. If it is even partially closed (as in the shipped position) the ignition will not operate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from every stove needs a windscreen A stove needs wind protection. I used a homemade one. Worked, cost nothing, and weighed nothing, but delicate. I replaced it with this one. Assembly is easier with this factory made one, but I still have to take my gloves off. I don't worry about the weight. A titanium windscreen might save an 1oz. but the money could cut more weight elsewhere. For real "gram weenie" days I can heat noodles in a mug on my 11g alcohol stove. When I want to cook, the giga power and windscreen work well.
