View Full Version : Smoking in the wind

Is smoking when it's windy possible?
Or is it just too bloody difficult to bother?
I am highly, highly stressed at the moment. I can't have alcohol or sleep and am currently being deprived of smokes too.
I might be able to sneak one in out the back door - but the problem is it's excessively windy as the back is very open.
So - how can I do it?
Help me!

Turn your back to the wind or is it a lazy wind?

Sadly it's a bloody everywhere wind. The rear of the house is exposed and the countryside around is totally flat.
I will be mostly inside, whilst the cigar will be staying outside. I may have to build it a little shelter or something..

Detached - why?

Surely there must be one wall to hide behind if it's detached

I can't - I have to be at the back door so I can still hear my daughter if she needs me.... Which is pretty inevitable..

The only thing I can think of is to use a large umbrella
and shield yourself against the wind

We actually already use walkie talkies - but I have to be at the back door or it takes me too long to get to her..
It's actually working quite well tbh.. :41:

A cheap windscreen like you see on the beach?

In the end.... I went with this...
22919
Windproof vest top attached to the chair, cardboard and an open side to let the smoke out.. Worked well enough!
Not the most relaxing smoke I've ever had, but F me I needed it!

Bad weather spoils cigars! I find smoking in the wind very frustrating.

Ok my son the other week while on a vermin shoot decided to take a trinidad coloniales with him
to smoke at lunch time,quite a windy day it was too
from first third onwards the cigar started burning unevenly,no amount of touch ups corrected the burn of the cigar
don't think he'll bother again smoking on a windy day seeing that don't think i would either.

Yep shame waste of a good cigar , I take cigars fishing and ferreting and always take a real cheapy I've got left from when I first started so it doesn't matter much , but a fine purl deserves care and attention to savour it

Would agree with you there oskihen take a cheapy when out and about, but a fine cigar deserves care and attention.

My eldest son does a lot of beating , and he was at an estate shoot at Xmas and they were passing round very top end cigars to the guns and Ben said more than half ended up chucked due to wind rain and people not really into them anyway .

Toscano, Backwoods and Dutch cigars are for outdoors activities like fishing and camping. IMO

Yes fishing, why would I want my possibly slimy fish/bait smelling hands ruining a Nice puro?
