We have 6' chain link--very sturdy and is holding up quite well. Keeps the dogs in and, more importantly, discourages most of the wildlife from coming in. It won't stop the raccoons or anything rabbit-sized or smaller, but porcupines don't seem to want to climb it (thank dawg), it keeps out the coyotes and deer, and it so far has repelled the wolves and the bears. I doubt that it could stop either a determined bear or wolf, but then, neither would a wooden fence. I know it wouldn't keep out a cougar, but they're pretty scarce in these parts...

The locking gates are nice, too--kept the Census people out!
