I'd like to make a windscreen for a cannister stove. Ideally, it would be a lightweight heat-reflective material on a wire frame that would fit over the stove and pot like a cylinder (or box or whatever). Is there anything from the heating/AC world like this (maybe would look like a tube you'd let your hamster run through--if he was the size of a muskrat)?

The standard heavy foil shield from an MSR stove is not tall enough, though it could be put on wire stilts (would air coming thorugh the bottom kill its utility?). Any other ideas? Where can you get super-heavy foil? or very light sheet metal?
