I live in Florida and shoot around the river and beach where it is windy. I just started shooting models and the last outing i had an umbrella on a light stand fall over...yes, I had sandbags on it, but apparently not enough.

Anyways, my questions is, the umbrella fell and got damaged...it was a cheap Adorama $19 umbrella. I am wondering if I would be better off buying a more expensive umbrella. Are they sturdier or just as likely to get damaged?

Anyone have any recomendations for which umbrella to try next???
