With the nature of a cane, you will always have some instance of wind catching it.  However maintaining proper cane hold technique is important & will help keep your cane in control.

I believe the Iowa cane is a tad hevier & rigid than these Bob Riley canes.

My NFB cane tended to whip around easier in drastic winds while my Iowa cane added just enough to keep it on the ground (however, the recent wind gusts we experience did still lift the Iowa cane somewhat).
