I don't feel completely comfortable leaving the convertible with the top down when I drive it to work or stop at a store, plus I wanted something to keep the black seats from getting so hot that I can't sit down when it's been parked in the sun for a little while. This lightweight cover takes very little room in the trunk when not in use, and it's very easy to put on and remove.
I'm not sure how much protection it would offer in rain, since it is water-resistant rather than waterproof, but it would certainly be better than nothing if there should be an unexpected shower.
I think the only thing that would make it better is an additional loop to go around each outside mirror. I didn't realize it would only work with the windows down and the rear windscreen folded down, but that's not a show-stopper.
