I have gone thru many cheap versions of log rack covers, from tarps to similar covers to this one. They were all cheaper, but not if you factor in having to buy them every couple years. I was hesitant to spend the $$ for this one, but since we got our first one of these a few years ago, we will never again need to buy rack covers, because these will never wear out. They are built to withstand anything, and they are so easy to put on, and really easy to get in and out of. Love the huge velcro closures, I can open with gloves on! A perfect example of You Get What You Pay For.
