The problem with all these mural type windbreaks is that they stick out like a sore thumb on a green field campsite. I saw a nice one recently (from a distance) printed like a dry stone wall, but there were no other dry stone walls on the campsite or for miles around so it just looked silly stuck up on it's own in the middle of a field.

The better ones are those printed like hedging which at least can blend in somewhat. Of course, if you are into pop festivals and want to make a design statement or stick out among the crowd of tents then they are ideal. You may get some drug crazed kid diving into the seafront one though.

When I first started camping regularly I always used a windbreak to give me a bit of privacy. I could sit outside my tent and dribble my boiled egg down my chin without anyone watching me. Now I just can't be bothered to erect one and don't care what people think of my table manners...however, I do like that Bio-hazard one...that'll keep the kids away!!

Looks like something I could do with.

My wife creates a lot of wind

In the beginning there was darkness.
Then I bought a tent.

I understand that but we've seen so many put them up when there is no sign of any wind...

We like privacy too many people look into our awning when walking past. If I get the chance they get a two fingered salute!! Grrrr
