While I agree that coated ss is prone to failure due to rust under the cover (I have had bridle failures), I'm not certain a loose cover has any effect (it does not restrict oxygen). Any expereince out there? There are times when a loose cover helps a sheet or other rigging slide, and they are easier on the hands.
Again, a tight fitting cover is a different matter. That is not the question.
