    Hi, I have just obtained a Tilley Titan and it works great. It is missing the side shields shown by the arrows on these photos (from this site) that are attached to the pot stands.

    In the above picture they are hanging down from the pot stands and they swing upwards presumably to provide some shielding from cross winds.

    Before I make replacements I have three questions,

    1. How are they secured in the upright position?
    2. Are they effective as windshields? They look flimsy and seem to have gaps/cutouts in all the wrong places.
    3. If they are not windshields, what are they for?

    Maybe someone who has one (@Doc Mark ?) can help me please.

    @Twoberth ,

    I can't recall how they are affixed to the stove, but will dig my Titan out soon, and check, for you. I would call them windscreens, too, but don't know if that's an "official" name from Tilley. Good Score, by the way!! Well done! Take care, talk soon, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc
