I have one and love it, however, it isn't a top, it is a mesh screen. It won't keep rain off of you iow. It is great for keeping the sun from killing you, while maintaining the open feel, much better than a bikini top imo for feeling open. Installation is a snap, takes 2 minutes, can be left on under your top, and they are not overly expensive. So, if you want shade, I highly recommend it, if you want protection from rain, then it might not be what you want. I think it lets about 30% /40% of the sun through.
