Good Outside car cover?

Hey, im sure someone on here can help me with a review on some good car covers that will keep my car dry from the drain and clean as well. I had one and it said it was water proof but when it rains it doesnt keep the water out.

Any suggestions on where I can find one that is good for outside and agasint the rain?

Well I ordered the 169 one on AM because it got good reviews as far as keeping it clean and dry from the rain. I will let you know how it does.

Yeah, while I was gone my dad ordered one for 80 bucks and it said it was moisture proof but it's not so I upgraded to the one I ordered.

I purchased a 4 layer on eBay, for $40. this will be my second season with it, I'm very happy with it. but it's water resistant and breathable. most of the time the water runs off of it, . in some areas it does puddle. but,when it stops raining it dries almost immediately. if it lasts me a couple years I'll be happy and I just buy another 1.

Yeah while I was gone my dad bought one on there saying it was but it really isn't. It says moisture proof, but when it rains the water soaks the cover like when your clothing gets wet. Then, when you take the cover off it has reached the car. So I figured I would try the one on am

Non of the good ones are completely waterproof. They need to breath or the car will rust. Believe me we researched this very well. Started out with one from AM. It didn't do well with rain. They were great and took it back. I ordered a Noah model from Cover Craft. Cost about $239. You may think that's expensive but what's your car and paint worth? We used it for our pristine black 96 SVT Cobra we bought until we could clean out the garage. It rained a lot for the month we used it. That's my experience with car covers. It did let some moisture pass during very heavy rain, but very little and because it breaths when sun came out it dried out. A cheap car cover will scratch your car too. Each Cover Craft cover is custom made. Ours fits like a glove. Next level up is softer inside and extra padded for hail damage protection. Good luck Spiney-Dave
