Echoing all of the above comments
Echoing all of the above comments here. Had a cover out in the Los Angeles sun in our condo building common area for 5 years, and it would still be going strong except someone melted holes in it. Just bought a new cover, and upon taking it out of the box, found a 1" split in a seam in a top corner. Noticed that it seems much lighter/thinner, and doesn't have the mesh vent in back like the old one. Will have to exchange it tomorrow, but don't expect it to last very long with frequent use. Sad to see this from Weber, a name that I usually associate with premium quality.
