Yeah, gear selection appropriate to the environment. I am a bit surprised that the screens block that much of the breeze. I have the 9x13 Ozark Trail screen house that effectively doesn't do anything for stopping a breeze or even slowing it down. Probably a different grade of screen... It should be noted that there is a trade off between heat gain and cooling. I.E. the shade walls help a great deal to reduce heat gain, but do not help with cooling via breezes. I do use the Pagoda style canopy though that vents heat well through the, well, uh, Golf Umbrella style roof vent, and breezes tend to flow gently above the shade walls, and under the eaves as it were. There is enough of space that there is reasonable, although restricted air movement, If you can orient the canopy to catch the prevailing breezes, you can actually set up the shade walls to actually funnel the breeze straight through the kitchen which is super nice in the summer, unless of course the prevailing breeze is 96 deg F at 90% Relative humidity. At which time, there is NO WAY I am cooking a hot meal. I might plug in a blender and make a smoothie instead! Yes the EZ Up is massively heavier, and MUCH bulkier to pack than the Ozark Trail screen house, but it also gives me a much better shade coverage, a variety of options. Screens or not, shade walls nor not. The 9x13 is more like 8x10 roof. I haven't used that screen house in years. Literally. And probably won't unless we are going with a group where we need the space under the EZ Up for larger dining area and can figure out how to provide more shade. I have no issues with using shade cloth to get that done.
