After using this cover for a full year, all I can say is: WOW!
I picked this cover up last April in one last, desperate attempt to find a grill cover that would last longer than one or two seasons without showing signs of cracking, flaking, splitting or tearing...
Last summer was one of the hottest and wettest we had here in northern Virginia in quite some time. And this past winter was, hands down, the absolute worst we've had in the ten years I lived here - well over 70" snow (Reagen National Airport reported we had more snow here than either Chicago, or Fargo, ND!)...
And this cover came through it all completely unscathed and looking nearly as sharp and clean as the day I got it.
Finally! After twenty-some years of searching, a grill cover that meets AND exceeds my expectations. (I have been so thrilled with it that I even got my brother one for his birthday just a couple of weeks ago.)
In a nutshell, here are the details:
- Made by Classic Accessories
- Comes in four sizes:
- Med - fits a grill 58" L x 24" D
- Lg - fits a grill 64" L x 24" D
- X-Lg - fits a grill 70" L x 24" D
- XX-Lg - fits a grill 72" L x 28" D
- Gardelle protective fabric system features an elegant fabric top with a water repellent/resistant PVC undercoating
- Tough interlocking seams for added durability and strength
- Special treatments ensure cover won't crack in cold weather
- Cinch cord around base of skirt for securing
- Click-close straps that snap over grill legs for extra security on very windy days
- Air vents to prevent inside condensation or wind lofting
- Padded handles for easy fitting and removal
- Large zippered front pocket for storage
- Comes with a 3 year warranty
It usually retails for between $46 for medium to as much as $55 for a large -- if you price around though you can easily find it for less.
The two places I found with the best pricing were Amazon.com – Classic® Veranda Cart BBQ Cover – and CoversBonanza.com which both had them for about $30 for the medium and large... around $32 for the extra-large... and $46 for the extra-extra-large. And both offer free shipping.
Bottom line: This cover is absolute grilling GOLD. Get one, you won't be disappointed - I promise!
After three years of very heavy use - and a fair amount of 'abuse' - the cover has finally started to 'fail' me. A seam near one of the lift handles has deteriorated and a 2 1/2" holes has formed.
Am I surprised? Yeah, that is has lived up to my use and abuse this long before starting to give way...
Am I happy with it's performance and how long it has lasted? Damn skippy I am!
Will I get another one? You betcha!
Can you see pictures of - and get the full scoop on - the damage and how much abuse it withstood before it happened? Aboslutely! You can check out the full details here.
