Double use: Why to use a carbon fiber windscreen with your Esbit stove

A windscreen of equal size made from titanium foil weighs about 7 to 9 grams. The carbon fiber option shown here weighs 23 grams. So why should an UL hiker consider to use a carbon fiber windscreen, even though it’s three times the weight?

There is one simple reason: Multiple use.

  • Carbon fiber doesn’t get hot. Grab it any time without a cloth and adjust it to your needs.

  • Carbon fiber itself is a first choice oven cloth.
  • Carbon fiber does not reflect the heat, but is provides good insulation. Thus, it forms a great pot cosy.
  • Carbon fiber prevents the cooking accessories from rattling around in your pot when packed. You don’t need an extra cloth for that. Hiking without the tonk, tonk, tonk is great.
