Tops for summer?

Would it be best to go with a duster or a bikini top, or go with the full soft top ? All I have is a hard top now I need something for the summer.

I run a soft top year round. My plan this summer is to get a bikini top and throw it on when the top is down. When it rains, I'll put the top back up and throw the bikini top in the back. That's the plan anyway...

I run a bikini top year round (if any top at all) and that works for me.

While I have my full soft top in place during the winter, my 3-season mode is to run a BestTop bikini and duster cover with OEM half doors.

If rain threatens, I throw my soft upper door halves in the back of the Jeep. If it actually does rain, I'll install them into the half doors, park with my nose facing into the rain and tilt my seat forward.

I leave my soft top on with no windows or doors in the rain and the soft top actually keeps everything dry enough for me to be happy. I have no fancy sound system and even have my carpet out so its no big deal if things get a little wet but so far my seats have stayed dry enough to comfortably sit on after it rained all night.
