I have the softopper. I went from a hard top and I have to say, the wind noise on the highway is much worse with the soft top compared to the hard top. I expected this to be the case but still, I was surprised at the amount of wind noise.
in terms of quality, Softopper is excellent. Zippers, velcro, clips, etc. are all really nice. Also, the sail cloth is heavy duty and the plastic windows are nice and thick yet flexible. Operation of the top is really simple. It takes 5 minutes to get all three windows off. The only pain is taking the actual top off just because its big and kind of bulky. But there is no way around that, haha.
one BIG PROBLEM though is that my top leaks at the front of both doors! The door surrounds are adjustable and i have fooled with them every which way and the damn thing still leaks. I need to contact Softopper about it to see if there is anything they can do. The problem is that my rubber door molding doesn't quite seal up to the top so water sits in a little gap at the top of each door and eventually runs into the interior. It may be because my door molding is old and worn (1998) or also that it is a little deformed from my hard top, but that considered, the design is not the greatest... right now I have an extra piece of rubber molding stuck in there to seal up the gap. It is working ok for now.
overall, the softopper is really nice in quality, fit, and usability. My only complaint is that it leaks, which frustrates the crap out of me. Once I get the leak fixed I will feel 100% about the top.
