Car cover

Ive looked in a couple of places (Couldnt find any topics related here on the forums) but I'd like the C5 public opinion, what is the best car cover out there
long lasting, easy to put on and take off shields the car from mother nature etc. I only need it for the summer because of the trees and the pollen etc... I have a garage I can put her in for the winter so its not like im going to use it year round.

Im looking for good quality and im not trying to break the bank on a car cover here

Thanks

The number one choice that people make when buying from our store is the Covercraft NOAH covers. We have always received good feedback from folks who bought them. But before I would say for certain which would be best for your application, I would ask what specifically you are trying to prevent/protect/etc. Send me an email or PM if you have any specific questions, I'm happy to help.

I use the GM one, same as pictured above, grey with black stripes. It fits over my 2012 Transformer 3 with the high wing and the optional ground effects. It's a tight fit with the ground effects, but it works well. I can put it on in about 3 minutes alone.

I only put the cover on my car right after I was it, I store it in the garage with the cover on it so that it's dust free when I pull it out again. It's been two weeks since I've seen the yellow paint, likely will be another three before the cover comes off :-( I'm working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day for the next 3 to 4 weeks, no time to enjoy my car.

Covercraft..Been using them on all my cars for years. Perfect fit, easy on and off, never a scratch and even the AZ summer doesn't ruin the fabric. Check their website, and they often have good sales. They have several fabric versions, and I have been using Weathershield.

The NOAH is a very good cover.

Coverking Stormproof in Red to match the car. Water beads up and runs off for the most part, it will soak through if it pools anywhere for and excessive period of time (more than a day usually at the spoiler) so I know it breaths. It is machine washable and fits GM ground effects.

just my two cents.. Unfortunately I do not have a garage to park my Camaro in. I have the GM cover and it dos not keep the water out and it sweats as well.. looking for something else, considering the Coverking Stormproof.
