Excellent Fit, Easy to use, But lets in a little water

It's been a rainy season here in Southern CA this year so I've had plenty of chances to test out this Stormproof cover. I will say, it's not completely water proof (But I didn't expect it to be, as even in the description of the product it mentions that its water repellent, and will allow minimal amounts of moisture in), though if I have the car covered overnight and frost develops on the cover, the car is completely dry with no waterspots underneath. The winds don't blow too hard over here, but when its breezy the cover stays in place, as it is a very tight fit (perfect fit for my IS250!) so I never have to worry about it blowing off.
The neighborhood cats like to mark their territory on my car covers and this is the best one so far for repelling it! Because of the material, which feels a lot like a windbreaker jacket, the cat pee basically beads off just like water, and it doesn't saturate the cover, so there is no smell left behind on my cover!
Overall, the cover does what it says it will. If I know there is going to be days of heavy rain (which isn't too common in SoCal), I'll throw on a tarp over the car for extra protection but for light rain or overnight frost, the cover does a great job and leaves you with minimal (if any) spots to wipe on your car ;)
I hope it lasts for as long as I have this car! (And I will definitely buy another for my next car!)
