So I have finally got my first lightweight kitchen together, looking for some tips regarding wind shielding.
Does this look reasonable to the seasoned stove gurus? Took a while to boil with a less optimal setup than that, am i missing something? My cup is slightly smaller than the legs, so I imagine some heat is being lost upwards.
You are always going to loose heat if the pot is too small, even with a windshield. What is the point of using a cup anyway? Oh yes, I know it's trendy on some of the hiking forums, but Ti pots are hardly much heavier or bulkier for that matter. The squat Evernew pot I mentioned earlier works perfectly. I don't carry a windshield at all.

Light weight, yeah well.
I've been walking, kayaking and more recently bike touring with combinations of this lot for a fair while now.
The SnowPeak aluminium billies are quite new but the stove, an Optimus Svea 123 has been in existence since the late '70's.
Prior to my aluminium pot concession to lighter weight I used to lug around 1 or 2 steel billies.
