I had one of those vinyl tops too & didn't like it either. Now, when you say premium top, I don't think the "Premium Black Sunrider" top that is an option on new Jeeps is what I'm talking about. I think those are single layer tops also; but, I'm betting they are better than the vinyl.
The one I bought & really like is by Bestop. Here is that link:
The Black Twill Supertop NX top that I have is much quieter than the vinyl. I can hear more than inside with the hardtop on.
It is much cooler inside my Jeep too. I was driving on the freeway & as I was passing a truck, there was some flapping. But, it does have some removable flapper stoppers (bows). I was driving without the removable bows.
Hope that helps.
