I'm extremely impressed with this cover!! This is a replacement for a Bakflip G2 that only lasted 4 years before it delaminated and absorbed water in the panels. I use my truck every day for work and often have expensive tools stowed in the bed, and the WeatherTech Alloy cover is far superior in quality and security. They also payed attention when designing this cover. The other fold up covers on the market (Bakflip etc...) that rest against the rear of the cab when using the whole pickup bed for large items block your entire view of whats in back, and if your going any distances will also rub the paint on the cab even though they have rubber snubbers. So you can't see if everything is staying secured, unless you pull over to inspect your load. Trust me, it's nerve racking to not be able to see out the back with something big in back. Also to remove the other covers you have to unbolt the assembly from underneath, and the do the same to reattach. Total pain in the butt! To remove the Alloy Cover you simply release the locking mechanism by pulling the cord and presto, the whole cover lifts up and off!! I stow it sideways alongside the bed when hauling large items and when I'm done, simply click it back into place. Lastly, you can close your tailgate with the cover down which you cannot do with the G2, and let me tell you thats a HUGE improvement! I can't tell you how many times I had to stop someone from damaging the Bakflip by shutting my tailgate before lifting the over up. So my advice if you thinking of buying a hard cover, spend a little extra up front for the WeatherTech AlloyCover.
