Mesh tops

Anyone have inclement weather experience with mesh tops?

My nephew says it keeps "most" of the rain out. I'm not certain I'd like what his idea of "most" is.

No, it keeps very little out.

Been caught in the rain more than once with my Alienshade. Great as a sun block, lousy as a rain shelter.

I run a bikini top and a tonneau cover. It's rolled back and bungied to the sound bar so if I run into rain, I can quickly unroll the bikini and throw the 1/2 door windows back in.

I used a Spider Web Shade for a season or two. It does not block any rain worth blocking. In the end, I decided I preferred all or nothing with the soft top. Most of the time, the main canopy is up without windows.
