Get Her Covered - A Premium Windshield Cover for Your Truck or SUV (continued)

The Sun: When it comes to functionality the cover is wonderful for keeping the sun for penetrating the cab of your truck. No longer do we have to start it up and turn on the air for 10 minutes before driving. After using the cover for a few months we noticed the blue side panels are fading. It doesn't appear the material is failing only that the color is fading from sun exposure.


The outside of the cover takes the brunt of the sun

The Wind: The windshield remains covered even in a strong wind though the front of the cover will flip up leaving the cowling uncovered.

The Rain: After a downpour we noticed the cover does get wet. Any cover that resides outside a vehicle will become wet with rain but it did make it a bit tricky to store. If you don’t have time to dry it out your stuck dealing with a wet, somewhat cumbersome, cover.

Snow and Ice: If you've ever had a frozen windshield and had to wait 30 minutes before you can start driving the cover will be a welcome friend. In this situation the cover does a good job of preventing ice or snow from building up on your glass.


The cover deployed on our Dodge Ram

Protection: Traveling to many different boat ramps and out of the way places I enjoyed the peace of mind of knowing people cannot see into my truck. Also with the thickness of the cover it protects the windshield and side windows from flying gravel.

Bonus: Another positive side effect of the product is that since it covers the entire windshield it protects the rubber on your windshield wipers and the cowling from daily sun damage.


The cover fits well on our truck but because there is currently only one size available the fit will vary depending on your vehicle

Price and Applications:  About a 100 bucks gets you the standard cover and $125 for the American Flag version.  One size fits all, well most all trucks – they have an application guide on their website gethercovered.com. This cover is a nice addition for truck and SUV owners looking to step up the sun protection on your vehicle whether you are storing it outside or leaving it for hours on end at the launch ramp during fishing trips.

Ratings:

Get Her Covered Windshield Cover Ratings (?/10)

Construction/Quality Made from 600 denier nylon which is about the same thickness as a backpack. Since it fits over the passenger windows it won't blow off 9
Performance We rated it an 8 because the side panels faded and the fit was not perfect for your truck. 8
Price We have seen many covers that go for less but not nearly the quality of this one 8
Features We like the innovative design - the side pockets go over the side windows where the cover is stable and secure. The cover drops down to the hood where it covers the wiper blades and the front cowling. 8
Design (Ergonomics) Since it's a one size fit all the ergonomics are not perfect for our truck and the reason for the “good” rating here 7
Application There are not a lot of options out there for windshield covers.  Get Her Covers currently only has one size where we'd like to see multiple options in the future 7

Total Score

7.83
Ratings Key: 1 = terrible : 2 = poor : 3 = lacking : 4 = sub par : 5 = mediocre : 6 = fair : 7 = good : 8 = great : 9 = excellent : 10 = unbelievable!

Pluses and Minuses:

Plus

Minus
+ High quality design and construction - Fit is not perfect for all trucks
+ Sun protection - Cumbersome to pack
+ Ice protection - Gets wet in the rain
+ Added theft protection - Fades over time
+ One size for all trucks makes deployment easy  


The Get Her Covered windshield cover does a great job keeping your cab cooler and shielding it from the sun all day long but also has the added benefit of protecting it from other elements as well as some added security

Conclusion: The Get Her Covered windshield cover is a high quality cover that does the job it was designed for and I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend.  We purchased it primarily for the sun protection but found that it delivered a number of other benefits along the way. This product takes sun protection to the next level, no more fumbling with sun shades that only limit some of the light over the dash… the Get Her Covered windshield covers the entire front cab of your tow vehicle.
