2 Reviews of the Windscreen Lux
By: Delabane Reason: I own(ed) one Made in: 2012 Rating: Date: 30/08/2012
We purchased this to go with our Montana 6P and to provide some shelter when we have doors open or under awning/extension and want some extra privacy. Only used it once so far.
Seems very strong and sturdy and only took about 10 minutes to erect. However most of the pegs bent for the guide ropes when hammered into the ground. The Outwell easy pegging system is a good idea, just need stronger pegs.
I did take it down when the wind picked up and changed direction. Easy to fold away in its bag.

We used this windscreen on a windy hillside site and it performed superbly. It does take a bit of practice to put it up and take it down without a struggle. The trick ie to fix the centre poles before the end ones and there is a definite knack to taking the curved poles apart. Because of the steel frame it is very stable. As a bonus we acquired it at an exhibition quite heavily discounted. I haven't seen anything on the market that compares with it.

Outwell innovation is applied even to the most simple of camping shelters. Launched to high acclaim last year, the Windscreen Lux addresses traditional stability problems associated with windy weather and poor ground conditions by linking the uprights with pre-curved bottom and apex poles. This creates an easy-to-pitch, stable semi-circular profile that provides perfect protection from the wind. Outwell’s trademark pre-attached luminous guylines and ground spikes provide a secure anchor. Style is not forgotten and the addition a full-length tinted window not only maintains privacy while allowing views out, but it looks good too!
Recommendation: The perfect blend of style and practicality creates the best windscreen on the market today.
