Bought Windblocker panel at Malvern after reading many good comments on here & very happy(y) Did ask if any Funster discount but sadly not - product sells itself like hot cakes at the shows without any sales pitch needed. Can trim the top tape for a better fit (without cutting the net) if a bit too long (we did on a 3m front) or if you contact them they can make ones to suit your requirements as manufactured in UK. Another hint read on here is to thread bungy cord through the bottom loops instead of pinning each one.

many many years! since I was a kid
breaking wind is easier wearing fishnets apparently....less resistance so they say

windblockers are brilliant at keeping out the breeze and pack away really small

A good blog, I was thinking of buying these. I have 4.5 mtr omnistor.

Front panel is quick & simple to use (folds up small too) as easily feeds into front groove on Fiamma & Omnistor awnings then bungy cord (peg this) through the bottom loops stops wear & tear on them & to stop it flapping these are popular for fixing the net to the legs http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160918991275?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT
We didn't find the side panels so appealing unless you really need them as a lot more cost & bulk as tension poles needed & their ones didn't look that special. Using a waterproof Jormax windbreak at one side of the awning & leaving the other open works well for us:) Just our choice but the whole set may suit others better.

Same price for Windblocker at the shows as online but save on the p&p(y) Don't leave it until the end of the show though as they do sell out of some sizes & colours. Parrotsol http://www.parrotsol.co.uk/ is another popular awning panel but not as pretty!
