Stain for Cedar Gazebo?

Looking at Floods CWF or Armstrong Clark Stain or any suggestion?
Building cedar Gazebo with 1/2 walls and Bahama shutters. Looking for a semi transparent stain for the walls and structure. Solid stain for the shutters. All wood will be cedar. Lowest maintenance product is what I need.
Both Floods CWF and Armstrong Clark seem to be penetrating stain so I would NOT have to deal with peeling later. This area is in full sun by a pool. Anyone used either of these before? Suggestions.

Don't judge the ceiling. Added insulation and I'm in the process of adding tng ceiling.

For a brand I have had excellent results from Sikkens stains!

While I love the look of CWF's natural stain, it's not the longest lasting stain. I've only used their opaque stains a few times. Just because it's a penetrating stain doesn't mean it will last for ever and not wear away. The stain on the exterior side of the posts will fail first. Sikkens makes one of the better deck stains [can also be used on siding, posts, etc.]
