Lee Sail Covers - Good? Bad? Your experience?

Greetings all:
Anybody done business with Lee Sail Covers? (leesailcovers.com)
They pop right up on a web search, and appear to be reputable - money back guarantee if you are not satisfied - I haven't seen that since LL Bean!
Also curious about how their 8 oz. "Weathermax" fabric handles/holds up. Looking at the comparative charts on their web site, it appears to beat the *&^% out of sunbrella??!! Any comments about your first hand experience would be most appreciated! Happy winter project-doing!

Lee Sail Covers

I have ordered a sail cover, cover for a Magma grill, and a jib bag from Lee Sails.

I have been very happy with everything.

My measurements may have been off on my sail cover because it hangs down too far below the boom.

She offered to resew if I'd send it back but I never have.

I've owned the sail cover for about two years and it has held up well

The Weathermax fabric is very intriguing. The people at Sailrite did not know much about it and currently have no plans to carry it. I too would be very interested any first-hand information. I looked at the websites of 4 of the Weathermax distributors and I do not believe that any of those also carried Sunbrella.
