Originally bought a 14" and a 10" to compare the sizes and decided to go with 10". Great price for the product. Paper is thinner compared to similar products, but can't beat the price. It requires a delicate handling to hang, but once I got used to it, it went quick. We have been hanging these lanterns for straight three weeks outside and they are holding up pretty good. There have been no rain, so I am not sure how it sustains in raining. I know higher quality can sustain in a light rain. I noticed some creases during the day, but when it lights up, they won't be noticeable.
