I have the Spiderwebs SW1 and I really dig it.

South African sun doesnt screw around and the difference between going out with and without the top is huge! You still have that topless feeling but dont get cooked.

And the bungy ball system works so damn well.

Only problem i have with it is that it doesnt really work as a Windjammer if you are tall (But i dont know if any would).

Very happy with mine. Biggest plus, is I can leave it in place and close my soft top.

I've used these before, and they're by far my favorite. The mesh top provides shade but still offers a full view, and the decrease in noise is amazing! It's a LOT quieter than a regular bikini/safari top (no flapping!) and quieter than any soft top too.

VDP mesh brief top

VDP mesh full roll bar top

Hope this helps!

I have the VDP full shade top and love it. However when I put mine on I wrap the back section around the roll bar so the back acts as a windjammer. Works great and cuts out a lot of wind on the highway and sun.

I forgot to mention the best part about them, they're CHEAP to buy!
