We just got in our new Poppy Cover and I must day it is like night-and-day compared to the snap-on cover that SeaDoo provided with our boat. The snap-on is nice for mooring and short-term storage, but it is not ideal for use while towing.
The Poppy Cover is great, it fits like a glove and the vents it has let the inside still breath while being covered.
