Car cover help

Hi all
My Noah car cover has aged out and I see Calcover no longer make that model which I loved I'm torn between three options The Super weave from California Car Cover ( NOAH replacement) at 339 The Weather Shield from Covercraft 361 and the Storm Proof from CoverKing ( sold by Pelican ) for 250ish
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience thoughts on it. I'm leaning Cover King due to Pelican's sponsorship and the no coating technology and price

I will vouch for Pelican's Coverking. I have had one on my car for +/-18 months. It is holding up well in the California heat/sun.

Thanks! How about rain and breathability Does it keep the car fairly dry and clean?

With in reason. The seams aren't sealed so there is some water intrusion. My main concerns are So Cal sun damage and keeping it clean. I am still satisfied with the purchase.

I too lived in the DC area and use a Noah cover through many winters and much snow and ice. Not sure I'd want one that wasn't waterproof.

My Noah wasnt water proof a little gets through but it doesnt trap it so it dries quickly The problem has been that its starting to let the dirt through

CoverKing Strom is the best car cover made. Been using them for years. On my second one, almost wore out one already after yrs of use, but still good. Second one is for the Vette. I like the dual color option.
