Could always make one of these or buy it electrical metalic tubeing or emt for 1/2 or 3/4 is cheap and a small tarp and bungee cords would work just as good as at link below..I think but not postive this is the only company making wind breaks right now..

Had one and sold it last year. Tried to buy another one and they are not making them any more. SO I build myself a cheap wind break out of a Jet Sled XL. I used a trap for the sides and 1x2" PVC board bolted on to make it like a triangle. Got the idea from someone selling them. There's isn't the Jet Sled Xl though. It is 66" long and wide enough for my foldout chair with a side table on it. Sitting under it is better than the FX 50 I had. Covers me better and I could even put a heater in behind me. I just bought some heavy duty Vinyl type material I will use instead of the trap once the tarp wears out.

Electrical metallic tubing. Do you mean conduit?

Think of the letters emt = eleltrical metalic tubing..  same difference just using the trade name.. . Ridgid metalic conduit is a thicker wall for heavy duty applications...  were more protection is needed.. think of thesaurus on terms..  conduit and tubing ect.are all the same .. the trade name electricians use is emt short for electrial metalic tubing .. but general public some time calls it conduit .. really no difference in the two ecept emt is used by electricians ?

This is funny. Same as this place on the mountain everyone takes there atv's to unload and ride. Locals before me 27 years here call it the Round Corral. I told a guy once we went to the Circle corral and he instantly corrected me." IT IS THE ROUND CORRAL. "  I told him no difference Circle or Round. He insisted it is the round corral and I just laughed at him. I still call it the Circle corral. He still gets mad at me. Life goes round and round in a Circle.

lefty2053 nice simple and straightforward design.
I see you use a "hard" arm quad chair too.
I can't get my butt out of the soft ones.

That chair has a a fold down side table with cup holder on it and still fits under there. I also bought a chair rod holder for it. I have since taken off the zip ties and just ran a rope through the holes and tied it off. When that tarp wears out I will use a lot stronger type Vinyl material I found.
