Looking for a LIGHTWEIGHT STRONG windbreak- any suggestions. Remember lightweight!
The lightest ones are a pain in the a**e as they need loads of guy ropes. However if you are serious look at Outwell, Vango or Gelert ones. Most of these have lightweight poles that come in 2 or 3 sections.
Don't waste your money on lightweight ones. As cal54 says they need loads of guy ropes and even then they don't really work. We looked at lots of different ones including the really expensive frame ones but ended up with a std stripes 7 pole/ fabric one from go outdoors, the type you use on a beach. It is lightweight, needs no guy ropes as the wooden poles are long enough to hammer into the ground and that keeps them sturdy enough. Also the cover can be removed for washing if necessary. Aldi have some similar at the moment for 9.99.
We just bought one yesterday from Cornish Windbreaks they are not the useless thin ones and the prices are very good. The owner does go to some shows. We are very pleased with the quality and price. Saved on postage as only a couple of miles away.

Hi,the best windbreaks I have seen are the Jormax ones lightweight and very strong but not cheap.
I have a 7 pole fabric one, just been weighing everything I carry, it weighed in at 4.5 kgs, dont think that was too bad.
We have a Jormax windbreak and skirt.... Very very good and excellent quality
Jormax are great and when my cheaply one gives up the ghost might invest in one.
Jormax, you buy once, yes a bit pricy but you will not need another windbreak come in all colours and lengths .
I have the Jormax windbreak but dont consider it to be lightweight.
We bought one from Cornish windbrakes at Malvern last year, very pleased with it, it comes with the poles which clip along the top to make the whole thing rigid and stable. Metal capped poles, about £20/£30?
I liked the jormax make but for the number of times we actually use a windbrake couldn't justify the price. Also someone said they'd had their jormax nicked once.
