    I am somewhat inexperienced with canisters. I was wondering if this windscreen, which my wife made for me from carbon felt, would trap too much heat for use with a canister stove. I have used this windscreen with some other stoves. Brad IMG_0650.jpg

    I'd test it. As long as the canister doesn't get to the point it becomes uncomfortable to the touch where the liquid part of the fuel is at you're safe. You may want to check the base of the stove where the valve is at to test it as well.

    Fuel acts as a coolant, cooling the can. Test it and you should see. I've used a stove in a rain and had ice form.

    Agree with above posts. Worst case: it may overheat in warm weather. I expect it would be a real help in the cold.
