This was a replacement car cover because the last one I purchased (also from Walmart, but a different brand purchased in-store) disintegrated in two years. I did a lot of comparison shopping but really good covers cost twice as much (or more), and from the description, this one sounded like a better deal than the last one.
The other cover fit far better (although I may have received the wrong one, because the description on the box didn't match the description of the item I ordered - but since Walmart doesn't provide part numbers, it was hard to be sure) and was difficult to install. The other cover also had FRONT and BACK printed on it in big letters, which helped a lot with installation or replacement when the cover blew off. This one just has a tiny tag in the front with a picture of how you're supposed to roll the cover on. Which was a problem, because the rolled up cover was just packed in a cardboard box, and it unrolled when I turned the box over to get it out.
The other car cover also had grommets to use to tie the cover down, which were actually pretty annoying, since using them means you can't remove the cover very easily, but at least it kept the cover from blowing off. This one was advertised as having an elastic bottom to prevent the cover from blowing off. But the elastic only fits around the front and back (not the sides), and the cover has blown off twice now. Not a great record since I installed it Sunday and today is Wednesday.
You get what you pay for, I guess, but on balance, I would recommend someone pay more up front if possible, and get a better cover. This one is clearly just a stop-gap solution.
