We have teamed up with OLPRO to provide you the chance to win a 4 pole Windbreak in your choice of design!
We put one around the Cadac to keep the wind and rain of the wife when she makes my breakfast.
The difficult bit is holding the brolly and cooking with one hand in the rain
We put one up for the dog and the site we use in Cornwall one at the front/side as we caught a few kids struggling past the wastemaster and the Aquaroll as we are up against a fence.
Did not want the little darlings to bang their heads on the window as they went past.
I would rather they did not stand out so much though and I would not have any that needed guy ropes as they seem to be on the ground more then upright.

Like a couple of windbreaks to keep the wind off our camping cooker, and they are useful to make a windless area to sit in on a breezy day. But I think these 'designer' ones look cheap and flimsy. We'll stick to our beach ones which have served us well for years.
------------- Leave only footprints. Leave it like you would expect to find it.
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!!
