I purchased this from Autoanything.com
Price was around $50 shipped with the carry bag.
This by far is the nicest looking sunshade I've purchased. It is triple padded, thick and stiff. I opted for this one over the heatshield sunshade because I like the look of the covercraft much better than the wrinkle looking roll up type like the heatshield.

I got mine not too long ago. I also like it, except for the sides not being completely covered. Considering how long I waited for it, about the same as you, I would have liked it to be a little bigger to cover the whole windshield.

Which one did you go with? theres so many options..

Flat or curved or convex? 270 or 300?

im thinking 270, but not sure on the flat curved or convex

Also did you get a chance to try the heatshield one yet?

I was debating which to buy, the heatshield or the covercraft.

If you like cumbersome and bulky get the covercraft, if you like lightweight with minimal effort get the heatshield.
Both serve their purpose very well. I have both....(just my .02 cents)

i've had covercraft with all my vehicles, inherited the trend from my parents who've had them in their cars since the 80's. it's large, bulky and a downright PITA, but it works oh so well, and the fitment is perfect (considering the rigidity and thickness)

The Covercraft shade is nice, but as mentioned, I feel the coverage is a little lacking. I also despise having to have the sun visors flipped down for support. I've had the heatshield type in the past, and never had an issue. Fit very snug, and just "pop" right into the windshield frame.

I have the 240 flat version. It is basically the same size as stock, so you can still pull down your sunvisor without hitting the rear view mirror.

I have not tried it on. I like the looks and feel of the covercraft much better than the heatshield one. Best looking sunshade by far.

The Heatshield one is thinner and the plastic coating makes it feel cheap and noisy when rolling it. Also I just don't like the wrinkle look of the shade itself.
The Covercraft one is thick and sturdy but it does leave 1/2 inch gap on the sides.

If you look at the video.. I show you exactly where the Covercraft lacks on fitment. It's not 100% perfect coverage.

Thanks, Do you think the 270 would hit the sun visors?

I totally agree with you.

My wife bought the Covercraft for her Volt and she absolutely hates it. I went with a Heatshield for my Accord and have had no regrets. Now my wife wants to replace her Covercraft with a Heatshield for her car.

The Covercraft is a total PITA to install. :thumbsdow

what visor does not need visors flipped down to support? i know some "pop" in, but have had them pop right back out... that's a crappy surprise when returning to your car on a hot day

The covercraft sunshade is highly recommended.

Other than the long 3-4 weeks wait for delivery, awesome product. :thmsup:

I got a heatshield, it does its job and fits well. While others may have issues with another manufacturer, the only issue I have is that it does not come in cool blue like my $15.00 AutoZone one for my Toyota.
