The Soft Top Cover can be used anytime the soft top is folded back. It's a great way to secure the soft top from flapping in the breeze and protects the soft top panels while sitting on top of the Slipstream. Keeps everything tight and compact. Easy to remove and store.
The cover is nicely made. It is a bit more lightweight than I was expecting - I was expecting 1000D Cordura, but this seems 600D at best. It does give the soft top a finished look and blends well. I use this to secure the soft top from bouncing, but frankly, it really doesn't bounce much on a normal drive. It would no doubt be appreciated if there was severe braking or any type of accident. I use a Factor 55 velcro tie to loop the side frame to the sport bar, so I like this soft top cover and the tie as a combo. The cover is very easy to put on and take off. The width of the cover ensures that it won't crease or wear the soft top in any way.
Overall, I'm please with the product. I do think it's pricey though for what you're getting. I would have expected around a $45 price if I were purchasing one for myself. I received this one free to review. Alan was gracious enough to offer without my asking on a call about the Slipstream and a related discussion. He even took my call while on the road and then followed up later. Great customer service there!
Great product. Really like how it compacts the top and compresses the folds of the soft top.
Love this product
