Bikini top header?

I'm in the market for a bikini top or some kind of a header. Solid material to protect the fam from the instant yet surprising thunderstorms we get here. I have looked at Best Top, Rugged Ridge, and Trail Ends. I really like the Rugged Ridge Island topper for the corner zip pockets. But I also want something durable and wont flap severely. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Jeep on my friends.

I installed the Island Topper and as soon as I snugged down the rear strap, the plastic buckle snapped into pieces. Gotta try and get it replaced or changed.

I was really interested in this especially since you can leave it on and put the hard top back on without removing it. But I heard it doesn't stop much water and I have a 2012 JKU Sport S.

But rain still comes in, from what I heard all it does it make the drops smaller.

I highly suggest the bestop safari top and header it hardly flaps at all at highway speed.
