Recommendations for emergency tops, 2014 hard top JKU

Looking for recommendations for emergency tops, I have a 2014 Wrangler JKU, I was looking at this one by Bestop.

Don't know much about them, but I have a hard top if that makes any difference.

Bestop 81041-09 - Bestop® All Weather Trail Cover in Charcoal for 07-14 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 Door - Quadratec

Thanks

To fit properly you need the hard top of fully. It won't fit as well (at all really) if the top is on. I use this in the summer, it does an amazing job of keeping rain/moisture out of the interior. I did buy a soft top for the summer to compliment my SpiderWebShade too.

Isn't that what the emergency top is for?

I need a top for when I have the hard top off. For emergency downpour if I am at work. I was not saying the top would be on while hardtop was on.

I want to make sure I get something that fits for my Jeep since I don't have a soft top, wasn't sure if there is a fit difference between soft top and hard top when both off.

Are you looking for something drive with? Or just parked?

If just parked, check out the Rain Gear thread that's been going on today.

So, is there an emergency top for when you are driving and come up on big rain?

I can't read your mind. This top will do the job. It fits nice and snug.

There may be others but this is what I got. Haven't had a chance to try it yet. Even has a couple of ponchos so you can stay dryer while putting it up...

Looks suspiciously like the Pavement Ends Emergency Top - even down to the two yellow ponchos.
