COVER SYSTEMS BREATHABLE OUTDOOR FULL SIZE CAR COVERS.


To SEE the PRICES of Covers etc. for your car start by selecting your car's manufacturer.

This will lead you to our prices for all our different car covers & Folding Garages for your car, and a button to click to place your order.

Outdoor car covers offer protection from natural pollutants like bird droppings and tree sap, snow and ice, acid rain, industrial pollutants, dust and airborne dirt, ultra-violet radiation, hot sunshine. These are car covers that are suitable for continuous outdoor use.

The Outdoor car cover offers a very effective theft deterrent. Something that can't be seen is much less likely to attract unwanted attention. Don't forget that you can also purchase matching wheel covers from us to hide your expensive alloys. (Please see optional extras lower down the page)

Our Outdoor car covers incorporate a door-zip (with an inner protective flap) on both sides (allowing for a very small number of exceptions eg Caterham 7), have hem elastic and include underneath straps.

NB The straps are not sewn to the cover, they are detachable and simply buckle to the hem on both ends. This means (a) it is easier to install the cover without these straps flapping about & (b) you lie them on the ground before parking (please try not to drive over the buckles !) so you don't have to throw them under, then they're really easy to pick up and buckle to the hem. Hooray !

Our polyester woven textile is 90% waterproof (and therefore breathable), according to testing to BSI standards. To all intents and purposes this would be 100% waterproof when stretched across a frame, for example an umbrella.

The cause of water ingress is wicking, which can occur when a fabric comes in to close contact with a smooth surface, for instance car bodywork.

Because of the breathability (which allows any moisture to evaporate from under the cover), this is a satisfactory condition for almost all circumstances, and certainly means that sweating will not occur.

If you want a higher level of waterproofing without losing breathability, we recommend using one of our under-covers, which will raise the waterproofing level from the standard 90% to 99% under-cover

By the way, you cannot have both 100% waterproof (eg pvc, other plastic) and breathability (certainly not on a car, perhaps on a human body), its a complete contradiction !

Extra elastic straps for the Outdoor Car Covers are available for severe wind conditions. All our Outdoor covers are supplied with a holdall and at least three under body straps, some have more.

Optional Extras

Rear zips.

Rear zips allow you to open the boot or hatch without removing the cover.

Leave the rear underneath strap in place

Simply unzip first, then undo the buckle at the end of each zip.

Use the Velcro tabs to hold the cover up off the ground

Severe wind conditions.

Whether man-made (trailering) or nature's own, wind conditions place a tough demand on any cover. You can deal with it in one of two ways, depending on the cause.

A trailering net will prevent a cover billowing at high speeds and can be secured to your trailer with luggage elastics.

Elastic straps while parked. The straps totally encircle the car (unlike an underbody strap which buckles to the cover) and, because they are flat elastic (not bungee), they provide a suitably tensioned grip without strain.

Mirror and Aerial Pockets.

Upgrade the fit of your cover to virtually fully tailored with these pockets which are designed to fit over wing or door mounted mirrors or non-retractable aerials. Fit them yourself or use our fitting service.

Wheel covers.

Designed for use on wheels on the car, they can also be used as a spare wheel cover, whether hidden inside the car or installed on a tailgate. Enhance the anonymity of your car, so increasing the theft-deterrent value of your cover.

We have a section devoted to wheel covers. Order your wheel covers here.

Technical Information

Our full size Outdoor Car Covers are made with a 300D* woven textile, proofed with an aluminised finish to reflect ultra-violet sunlight and heat. We control the specification of the proofing to ensure 90% water proofing without losing the breathability.

We have not found any fabric/material that achieves the Holy Grail of 100% waterproof (that is totally impervious to water) yet is breathable. It seems to us that this is a contradiction; you can have one or the other, not both. True, there are fabrics that supposedly achieve this when used as outer clothing (e.g. Gore-Tex). The catch is that the breathability is forced by the warmth of the body wearing it; rather difficult with a vehicle cover!

We strongly believe that the fabric we use represents the best choice available for manufacturing outdoor car covers. This fabric treatment is to our specification and hence is unique to our covers.

Most of our Outdoor Car Covers have driver and passenger door zips, you can feel safe with the knowledge that the zip is plastic and has a fabric cover to prevent it coming into contact with the paintwork.

* D=Denier, the thickness of the thread used to weave the textile.
