Haha the first 3 replies are for 3 different tops...probably the leading frameless tops too.
My take on this topic after having owned the Rampage non-sailcloth:
The rampage top was pretty cheap, but didn't leak, & was fairly quiet (not quieter than my Bestop RAT non-sailcloth). That being said, I had no trouble with the top for 5 months I owned it, but it didn't seem like everything would hold up for a long time.
The softopper is made in the USA & seems to be great quality...but it has tiny rear windows imo.
Both of those tops use a no-drill, non-oem style header to mount...which is a PITA to do deal with if you're trying to get the top on in rain.
Yes, I've gotten good at going from topless with no header on, to all covered up...& it can be done quickly...but can't compare to the ease of the oem style for putting up quickly.
.....& if you leave the header on while topless, it sounds like you're in a wind tunnel at 35+mph.
After having oem, bestop rat, very very used sailcloth rat, bikini, safari, rampage & now an oem sailcloth....if I went back to a frameless top (I love the way they look), I think the only one I'd consider is the trektop.
The trektop uses a oem latch style header, has the sunrider feature, & is likely good quality.
Oem style tops are just so easy to use...that's my hesitation of going back to a frameless top. I can get an oem style up/down so easily & all tucked away behind the roll bar in hardly a few mins..even when it's cool out.
Notes from my long post:
Rampage: cheap, but decent top (but cheap quality), annoying to taker on/off a lot.
Softopper: made in the USA....but has tiny rear windows (imo), probably annoying to take on/off. High quality
Trektop: probably made in Mexico, still good quality, has sunrider feature, uses oem style latches...
Edit: using rampage in the summer was annoying in the rain, trying to get my mountain bike in & out easily...the oem style top & window would've been far easier even in the heat (when either top would be relaxed)
Also, another example/thing to consider...tonight it's 30s/40s here & I could still get my oem top down fairly easily & not have to worry about getting it back on tomorrow night if it's going to rain. Even if it's in the 40s tomorrow, if I go carefully, the top won't be.that bad to put on (including my windows)....I wouldn't have dared do that with the Rampage top.
& if anyone asks why I was putting my top down when it's 30s/40s out.....shut up, that's why
