[pct-l] Re: light, reflective material for windscreen

I use a section of aluminum dryer vent - the collapsing/expandable kind. I use it with my alcohol stove, but I've also used it with a Gaz. It works very well, but crushes easily. You do need some air space at the bottom for oxegyn to get in. I clipped a couple of V vents which I orient away from the wind.

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)?
