Does anyone with a Spiderweb Shade live somewhere HOT???
So, I am strongly considering a spiderweb shade top for the summer but I live in Houston and it is HOT. My jeep is a hardtop and I've had a bestop bikini top on an old YJ before. I hear that the spiderweb shade blocks 90% of the sun but how does that translate in a really hot climate? It is 93 (feels like 101) right this minute and it's not even the hottest part of the day or the hottest part of the summer yet. Thoughts?
I live in TN and it gets pretty hot here, the spiderweb shade makes it not only bearable but even pleasant! Its like sitting under a shade tree. I had it on riding around on a hot sunny day and I thought it wasn't really that bad so I took the shade off. That lasted 5 minutes, then I was putting the shade back on, made a huge difference.
I decided to go with the Dirty Dog over the Spiderweb for a couple reasons. One it looked to block a little less sun out and 2 it comes in 2 pieces so I can take the front off but still have the back on for wife or son. I just got it last week and LOVE IT! I am in Dallas area and it was HOT yesterday. My Jeep said 105 as I was driving thru downtown Dallas and yes it was hot but very bearable. I think it is the perfect combination of blocking the sun but still letting some light and air thru. It cost a little more than the Spiderweb but for me it was worth it. From all I have read you can't go wrong with either one.

I have the spiderweb shade as well!! I love it, I live in Long Island, NY. Not to Hott out here yet but it was last year and it helped out more than a lot. I like it b.c you can still see through the mesh, air flow still happens. It's just enough to block the sun out and sit at red lights roasting in 100+!!

I've had the spiderweb shade for a couple of years now. I live in Oklahoma, just north of you. If you've followed our weather the last couple of years, we've been routinely in the 110 to 115 degrees range during the summer. I used my jeep all summer because of the webshade. It's a great product that I won't ever be without. It also keeps my bald head from burning.
