Constructed with new space age fabric, Climate Cover protects your vehicle from the elements while allowing the paint to breathe. Soft and durable fabric pampers paint finish and protects from sun, dirt, dust, moisture and pollution. The unique diamond bond pattern allows damaging trapped air & moisture to escape preventing paint deterioration. UV protection against sun and heat buildup and the spun bond polypropylene is a naturally water repellent material. Double stitched elastic hems for a custom fit. Gray with heavy-duty grommets. Bag, lock and cable included.
The cover is made well from what I can tell. I only just received. However, I am using the cover on a '98 TJ with factory hard top being stored outside. The cover does NOT fit well over the rear area of the hard top. It's far too tight to get the cover to stretch even over the bottom of the doors. It will likely tear once it gets cold out and shrinks. Disappointing!

So far so good
Haven't really had a chance to put it through its paces yet, winter hasn't hit yet (we're in a drought, no less). I like to keep the top off most of the year (I'm in California for criminy's sake, so winter is nothing). Bought it to protect it from the elements so I don't have to replace the seats every 3 years like my other jeep I had. Stay tuned for updates....

Durable, great fit
2004, 4" lift, 33" tires. Cover fits nicely. A little too much room over the side mirrors, but functional. Plenty of room for spare tire in back. Had our first big rain using the product. 1" of rain in 30 minutes and 30 MPH winds. Cover stayed in tact and kept 95% of water out. The Cover stayed in place without tie down.

The cover exceeded my expectations
The cover fits perfectly and exceeded my expectations for quality of materials and construction

I replaced the same cover (lasted 2 yrs) because of the price. Some nice features have been added - mirror, spare tire, antenna pockets. The cover is a little short in length and doesn't go over the SRC bumper. Very tight across the back as well so I hope I don't rip it. They added plastic grommets that the lock cable goes through and on one side the grommet fell of in my hand. Wish they had made it 6 inches longer and wider.

OK for awhile
the jeep is at our vacation home so the cover is on for weeks at a time, subject to rain, sun, snow, etc. one day I noticed flakes from the material, soon after it ripped across the hood and then it ripped completly in half. good news is the lock/cable was in place so it didn't blow away. I'm buying another, but not sure if I should spend more and if I did would I get more years out of the product.

Would buy again

It doesn't fit
Its probably a good cover, except that it doesn't fit my TJ. I have to stretch it to get it to cover my jeep. Its just plain old to small to fit a stock Jeep.

Smittybilt let me down on this one
I have had many jeep covers over the years. The sun eventually gets to them all, so I go through a lot of them. This is the first cover I have bought just plain won't fit. It's just too short between the grill and the tail gate. It had to be stretched to get it to cover my jeep. For [$], it should at least fit.

Very nice cover.
I bought this because at the moment I only have a bikini top on my 98 TJ. Let me tell you, this thing is worth the money. I had it on during bad thunderstorms (actually its still storming as I type this) here in central FL. I would estimate that it has been raining hard for at least 15hours on my Jeep. I had very, very little amounts of water inside..I mean drops. The only thing I would recommend, is if its raining for an extended period of time. To get rid of the puddle that is forming on the top. I had a good 4-5 inches of rain. I only did this as a precaution..but the cover still didn't let all the rain in.
