Mainsail cover

Hello, I am ordering new sails for our new boat. On all of my previous boats I have used the tradition style of mainsail covers,the Sumbrella which lays ontop of the mainsail and fastens beneath the boom. Presently I am considering the "zip pack". It can either fasten to the foot of the mainsail or it can slide into tracks ontop of the boom. I "think" that my lazy jacks would connect to the Sumbrella cover. When the mainsail is dropped it would go directly into the cover,then the cover would close "ontop" of the sail. I am thinking about ordering my sails from Lee sails. I have puchased a jib from them in the past and the cronstruction of it was very good. They would also be making the zip pack mainsail cover if I go woith that type of cover. Does anyone have any experence with that type of mainsail cover? Do the lazy jacks fasten to the Sumbrella? Is the mainsail weakened at all by the cover being zipped along the foot of it? Any comments would be apreciated. Thanks, Dave
