California Car Covers

Now that my car will finally be built soon, I'm looking at different car covers to buy.

From searching the forum, it looks like California Car Covers have a great reputation. Most people seem to have bought the Noah and are very content. My question is has anyone bought the Ultraweave?

I'm a college student, so my car will be outdoors for most of the year. Will the Noah be able to provide good coverage in winter, or should I bump up to a more outdoors-oriented cover?

I'd appreciate any advice.

I have had multiple Cal Car Covers for various cars. Outside of the factory cover, I also have a Superweave cover for the Camaro. It is like an umbrella material. Very thin, but very waterproof and sunproof. For outdoor use, it is the best. For indoor use or just occasional outdoor, it would be overkill.
Your choice, but CCC makes great stuff.

Sorry, but I had nothing but bad experiences with the Superweave - outdoor car only. It left swirls on all the corners of the car and stained very easily. The tires were coated with Zaino, so that's what stained it, however, it just marred up finish. I sent it back and ordered their Noah cover. I couldn't deal with what the Superweave was doing to my car. I know everyone raves about the cover...but. Also, it is VERY light weight, so the slightest breeze on a well waxed car means your cover will be on the floor if you're doing it by yourself. That made it worse! My 2 cents...
