The sides, ends, bottom and back of the SOS Sport are insulated with a 1" thick closed cell, glass reinforced foam with a 6.5 R Value. Wind and moisture resistant, the SOS Sport is designed to withstand the elements. Materials used are impervious to moisture.
The lightweight yet durable plastic should last for many years with minimal care.]]>

I like the Sport because it is wind resistant. Living in Arizona, I rarely use the reflectors except in the winter when the sun is lower. However, I find the construction quality of the lid to be lacking. I have had to replace mine once already and will need to replace it again soon. When they make the lid a better quality, this oven will be the best.]]> "side-by-side". I like the Sport because it is wind resistant.

You can solar cook in the winter, it doesn't matter how cold it is. You just need clear sunshine. I have had friends use a GSO to cook when there was a foot of snow on the ground and the air temp was in the 30's. Be sure to use the reflectors and black cookware; give the food plenty of time to cook, and place the oven at the best angle for the sun being low in the sky.]]>
