303 High Tech fabric guard vs Bestop protection products HELP

Greetings
The weather has finally been good enough for me to unbox and install my twill/premium sunrider soft top. Here's my issue, I have search WF & Google for hours but I am unable able to find any updated / current information to answer my questions. So, I'm hoping you folks can help.

I'm looking for a product that can provide the following.
UV protection
Beads water
Stain resistant
Longevity between applications
Maintain my Mopar soft top warranty
Easily found to purchase

From what I've read 303 Aerospace is a good choice, if you can find the "High-Tech fabric guard" for our twill tops version without buy a kit. And it meets my wish list above.
I'm not concerned with the over spray problem since those that use a paint brush to apply it have zero issues and better coverage.

Thank you in advance

I only have experience with the Best Top Protectant for Twill. It is a great product. I use it twice a year and both our jeeps stay outside in the weather.

Thank you! How do you apply the Bestop product and does it bead water nicely?

Good morning All!
I see a lot of soft tops running around and for what they cost I need mine to last as I'm sure others do as well. Thanks again Bonecollector and Bonedr for your reply.
Does anyone have additional info to share??

Here, check this one out. I'm in the same boat you're in for all around cleaning/protection. This video doesn't compare the two that you're inquiring about but it does demonstrate 303. I think between the two you're looking at - it's six of 1 or half dozen of the other. But for me, I'm going with 303. I've use them exclusively on my vehicles.

I've used 303 for years on my premium soft top and now my bestop sun rider for hard top. It's a good product, I spray it on and use a piece of cardboard to control overspray, and then use a detailer to wipe of any overspray. I'm more interested in the UV protection than anything else. I've never tried bestops product.

I've used Chemical Guys protectant on my convertible Mustang and have been pretty happy with it. I expect I'll use it on my soft top that I just put on in the near future.

I see 303 makes a number of different products. Which one in particular are you using and do you have the twill top(s)?

After doing some research on the 303 Fabric Guard, which looks like the only product for the twill tops, it doesn't look like it provides any UV protection.

You clean the top if it needs it. You wipe and scrub the product into the fabric. You let it dry overnight not exposing it to rain. You then stand back and admire the classic beauty of it all. And yes it makes rain "dance". For months.....
