Does what it is meant to do

Easy to use, managed to keep upright in fairly swirling wind, although at one point thought it was going to take off it stayed fast. Really good buy does what it is meant to do.

Wind break that doesn’t break wind

Does exactly as it says on the tin good value, easy to put up (bring your own mallet/ shoe) and away you go!! Or not as it blocks the wind ??

Fantastic windbreaker

Sturdy, well made windbreaker.
Bought for camping to use outside tent to add a little more privacy to cooking/eating area. Done the job.
Also had rather strong winds, and this item withstood them and stood standing.
Would recommend

An indispensible of kit and good value

We have only used it once so far but it proved up to the job. The poles are sturdy and the fabric will last forever.

Solid and sturdy

Had one of these for many years, which was used and abused in all weathers.
It's a little heavy and bulky to store, which is the main negative.
Bang the poles in properly and it's extremely sturdy - used this in high winds when I was sure something would break and it never did.
It's also very long, so it was used to make a 'corral' where chairs and bikes could be tucked away out of sight.
I will be buying a replacement as I seem to have finally lost the one I have had for over 5 years.

Truly sturdy!

Broke the staves on a previous set of beach windbreakers and picked this one up at a good price with discount card. We had strong winds at the festival we took it to and it stood up well!

Quest 5 pole windbreaker

This is the old school style windbreaker and it worked a treat.

We had recently bought a new style fiver pole and guy line type but when the wind picked up they were all over the place.

So we decided to buy this one, whack in the poles with a hammer and you're good to go

Well it certainly breaks

Firstly, can I say I accept that this is a cheap item. I wasn't expecting it to have the same manufacturing / materials quality as more expensive models. That said, it is normal to expect any purchase to be able to do what it says it will. THIS DOESN'T.
Unroll it and you'll find that it's even shorter than advertised ("approximate" length as a useful coverall). Then marvel at the blunt tapered spikes that will negate being hammered into any ground of even limited resistance. You'll use a mallet, of course you will, and seconds later the fragile upper caps will be lying on the floor or split to uselessness. Marvel at the way that the cheap wood has already split and threatens to break completely. Perhaps it would help if you could hammer vertically but since the poles are sewn in at various dramatic angles this is a bit tricky. At this point you'll remember the website description "cheap and cheerful" and nod. It's true you only spent £13 so that is indeed cheap but the only cheerfulness you'll see is on the faces or adjacent campers, chortling from behind their effective mid-priced windbreaks, cheer in your heart will be in short supply. This is a "windbreak" in the same way as a piece of single-ply bogroll is a "handkerchief" or a hamster is a "lifetime companion". Assuming that you're reading this in time and genuinely can't afford a more expensive option - save your money - or rather spend it on something more effective: a hat for example. or a cheap bottle of spirits to keep the knawing windchill at bay. Or stay indoors with a good book or board game.
The one saving grace of this flimsy, ugly, asymmetrical abomination is that it is so poor you won't bother bringing it back home. The extra fuel you'll save, not to mention the saved trip back to your friendly retailer with more wasted time and fuel, means you'll simply tuck its remnants guilty behind a municipal bin and walk away. And that dear reader is what I strongly advise you to do right now. Enjoy your camping!
