Seems like many of these posts are older so...
I'm considering an EZ Up style canopy for single day, good weather, outdoor shows to use with my Armstrong (stackable) panels (which I've thus far only used for indoor shows). I already have a Flourish Trimline (with mesh walls) for multi-day outdoor shows but it is becoming more and more difficult for me to transport, assemble, etc., it.
So I'm looking for brand/model recommendations solely to protect (my wildlife photography) from the sun. I don't need side walls or protection from rain. My only other requirement is that they be sturdy against wind. To that end, what is best to keep the canopy being recommended weighed down/standing?
I'd also like to know how anyone supports their Armstrong panels outdoors. I don't have wide footed legs and have always used cinder blocks to weigh down the Flourish. I have a single stabilizer bar across the front of the 10 x 10 panels (but know crossing two diagonally is an option) and otherwise don't use any supports for them (other than the brackets that come with them) when showing indoors. But of course I want to allow for wind outdoors.
Thanks for any consideration.
