Running freedom panels only

Northeast weather is obviously unpredictable and I don't have someone else to put the hardtop back on today. So anyways what are the pros/cons with only having the freedom panels on and the back part off, specifically in the rain. Worth it?

It keeps all of the electronics dry
It keeps you relatively dry

-Backdraft when driving can bring some mist into the cabin
- gets seats/carpets wet(easy fix:take them out)

Doors and freedom panels on in a light rain keeps you almost completely dry. As jkjeeper said above, at highway speeds you might get a backdraft pulling mist up fron and even onto your windshield. I always keep a towel handy since they only put those handy windshield wipers on the outside!
