Rain Gear cover over Trektop NX?

Anyone know if the Rain Gear Trail Cover will fit over a Trektop NX? This would be with the rear windows out but the top still on, safari mode. It says it will fit with a bikini, the NX top is pretty low profile but not sure if it will be too tight with the door surrounds on.

Good question..would be nice to know. Hope to find out, although it probably takes just as long to put a rain cover on as it does to install the windows.

We have both and they do fit very nicely. In fact thats the only way we have used the Rain Gear Cover

Cool, thanks Bonecollector, good to know. I need it for when I have the doors off too.

So did you get one ordered and does it work? I'm interested in one myself.

Anyone have a picture of how large the cover is when it's rolled up in the bag?

Ha! I simply gave up and just roll it up and try to fold then...then throw it in the back. After the first use I tried for about 20 minutes to get it back in the bag...no luck. With patience and luck, it will be about the size of a sleeping bag.

No real reason to chime in here as I have neither, but I've seen a lot of posts about people not being able to fold their RainGear covers to for them back into the bag they come with. Has anyone tried using in as just a stuff sack? Just push it in there without trying to make it neat... I have a few sleeping bags that are impossible to roll up to fit in their bag, but just shoving them in leaves just enough room to close the bag. Just an idea.

Lay it on the top side (inside up) out nice and flat. Fold the sides in at the first seam (that would be at the top of the doors. Once you get it smoothed out and folded along those seams, fold the sides in again overlapping, as in try fold. then simply roll it up like you would a sleeping bag. Fits in bag with room to spare.

The rain gear is used best when you're topless and doorless. Or in my case, because I have half doors. By the time I remove my mirrors, reinstall the doors, reinstall the door surrounds, lean the Gobi back, put the top up, reinstall the windows, lean the Gobi back down, reinstall the uppers...I have saved a ton of time with the rain gear.

This is the size of it in the bag when not trying to be neat (almost always.)

Ok thanks for the pic! That's quite large and would take up a lot of room in my 2 door. I've done a pretty decent job of avoiding the rain so far. In fact most of the time I get caught in the rain with the top off is when I'm driving, and the Raingear cover won't help me then!

I would imagine the 2-door cover would be smaller.

taking a vacation to the keys and wanted to go full nude on the way down. can these rain covers handle some rain for a couple days? My issue is that the jeep will be parked on a surface lot for 5 days and it tends to rain alot here in Fl.

Don't want to start new thread, but my questions are:

With Trektop NX on JKU safari mode/doors off which Rain Gear should i buy? They have 2 types. And will it cover 100% door openings not leaving gaps when doorless? I mainly want it for security for parking at nights. Also does it get dirty quickly? I have bestop trail cover and it has white fabric inside- not the smartest idea in the world.

It covers the entire open area and fastens with straps at I believe 9 points. It will keep hard driving rain out of your vehicle and will stay secure. It fits perfectly over the Trek NX with doors off or on, with the front top open or closed. We are extremely happy no leaks and no complaints. It also accommodates mirrors when you have the doors on with velcro enclosures around the mirrors. It's a tailor made fit, not a cheap one size fits all. If you have a JKU and a NX top you will be very happy with it in all possible configurations.

Cool. thanks for detailed response. I might go with trail cover(hard or soft top off) version so i don't have excess fabric in the back since i never have hardtop or factory soft tops on.

BC answered your other questions, but the color. It's black on top and a rubberized black on bottom. So it will get pollen all over it now and may get dusty at times, but you can hose it off. It won't be a permanent stain or anything.

So just to be sure.....between the two covers Jeepcovers sells, the Trail Cover is the one y'all are using with the TrekTop NX in safari top mode?
Not the Half Cover, which is what they say to use when you're running a hard or soft top.

Would anyone be able to provide a link for purchasing? Search results @ Quadratec and others came up with nothing on 'Rain Gear trail cover' and this sounds like exactly what I'm looking for here...

thanks in advance!
