Best outdoor car cover for the WK2?

I have bought many car covers but I’ve never bought one for our Jeeps. Our new 2019 JGC Altitude will be outside so I need a cover. Is the gray one from Jeep any good? It’s inexpensive at well under $300.

Any recommendations appreciated. This has to be a custom fit cover.

Of all the brands you've owned, I would think the one you liked best is probably going to work best for the Jeep.

Some people think I'm stupid and I totally disagree. But my biggest fear is that me thinking I'm smart proves them right.....

Well, that’s true but I’m asking about covers for Jeeps which are larger than most cars, and technology is always changing, so I was asking for experiences with current brand covers. The JEEP brand cover looks like a good option for the money but I have no experience with it. So, if anyone has experience with particular covers please let me know.

If outside protection is your goal...I would go cheap and disposable. Expensive ones are great for inside
where they never get wet or dirty but outside an inexpensive polypropylene one that you can get from Walmart would be practical in my opinion. You may not get the custom fit that the 300-500 dollar ones offer but as long as its anchored properly the ease of removal and storage (garbage bag) along with knowing your expensive car cover isnít getting dirty surely has got to be pluses.

I used a Covercraft Noah for three outside years in Kansas on my old WK- it's a really great outdoor cover that held up well in some pretty nasty conditions.

Covercraft makes the best covers in the business. They're pretty much exclusively used for things like multi-million dollar Pebble Beach concours cars, so you know they're tops. Not outrageously expensive either, but probably a tad more than $300.

Just bought this cover a few months ago for sun and pollen/dirt/tree droppings protection. Has done a great job so far.

I ordered the Evolution Cover from Covercraft, as I’ve had several of these over the years on other cars. It’s comparable to the Noah although heavier with a bit more protection from dings (or hail heaven forbid!). It’s bulkier, but that’s due to the extra layers in this cover, so here’s hoping I like it when it arrives.
