    Who makes the best covers?

    I have been looking for ski covers, mine didn't come with one I have a 03 GP1300. From what I can tell there are really only 3 that I would consider buying OEM, Jettribe, and Slippery. OEM being the most expensive, I would like to hear reviews on your experiences with covers. thanks

    My Slippery cover faded quickly, but it has outlasted the oem ones I have. The material seems much denser in them

    No mine was an older one for my GP had it about 5 years now and still hanging in there. I have to replace my OEM one on my SUV after three+ years. leaving these outside all the time is not good for them.

    Covers are nice for storage but traveling does scratch the cowlings up.I stopped using them a few years ago,like i said,they are great for storage.Just an opinion.The OEM covers are tough though.

    i'm leaning more towards Jettribe it seems like they make the best ones. I like the straps idea and the soft inside seems like those two are the final selling point. I do not plan on towing mine that much or that far really. When spending its time out of the water it will either be in a garage or a temp dome garage either way it will be ouf of the weather so it should be ok. Anyone have an idea where to get one at a good price?
