Get the biggest you can get It's heavier, more difficult to put up and take down, but it's a lot more fun to watch it go flying away in a heavy wind.

The Northern Breeze is not very heavy, poles are aluminum. We did have it set up at a car show one time, not staked down, wind came up and rolled it over, no damage. That's why I made a point of staking it down, and if we are in a windy location I use guy ropes at the corners too. We have been in some pretty good winds a couple times and it has held up fine, but did lean a little. I never use the plastic stakes or little rod stakes that come with any of the canopies or screen rooms, I either buy or make better ones. One time after watching some people trying to set up a tent in the sand at Assateague Island and the plastic stakes constantly pulling out because of wind, I finally went over to help and convinced the guy to go get some long metal stakes while we helped his wife keep the tent from blowing away. Need the right equipment for the situation!!
