Shrink Fit - Has anyone tried it

Since everyone is always discussing single pane windows I was wondering if any one had ever tried Shrink Fit? I used to use it on the inside of my back porch windows every winter and it worked fine. You cannot open the windows, but it sure helped the small heater I had with keeping the area warmer...

I assume you are asking because you are planning on some cold weather camping.

I cold weather camped 1 year. I have 3 windows that I wanted to see out of, but did not care if I could open or not, I used that shrink plastic you are asking about. Two of the three windows do not open at all, so there are no drafts from those windows. I don't know of a draft on the third window, but I put that plastic on it anyway. I believe it did a fairly good job in reducing the cold from radiating thru. My only problem was that the tape was a bear to get off the following spring. On the other windows I used that corrugated aluminum insulation which also worked fine. I had no issues with condensation on any of the windows.

We use the foil insulation we readed about on this site at Lowe's. You can't see out or in but easy to put up and down when needed.

The kind I am talking about has no tape and comes off easy enough. You heat it up with a hair dryer and it shrinks / tightens as the heat is applied. The windows only need a small lip on them for it to work.

I used it on my screen door to cut down the drafts from the door.The one I used had the tape.It seeked to help. I also have some foil covered foam for the windsheld and roof vents.
