Yes, I own a pair. They help, but I still don't feel 100% comfortable.

Or does it never happen to you? Is it because I’m kinda tall and lanky?

The round with the rain is just a survival thing. Not particularly pleasant, but having good gear made it tolerable.
When it's just the wind, it made for a unique experience (most similar to one time playing nearly blind drunk back in college, but that's another story).
I found it really funny to have to think about something so fundamental as not getting blown over in my back swing. Another thing was keeping my club on the swing path, especially the driver. It meant shortening my swing quite a bit and playing everything way down. You could almost leave all the clubs in the bag except your 4 iron. In fact, I may try that next time. But I ended up approaching it like I was doing Faldo's 9-to-3 drill, with a bit more intensity.

Those shorter and more rotund might be more stable but lack the weight to lessen it as much as you'd think.
When it's breezy swing easy has worked for me. Club up and just make good slower contact, fly lower. Maybe the longer club helps too?
