The product almost seems like a non-sequiter to me. If you are serious enough to worry about the performance loss caused by a UV shield, you are probably serious enough that you have racing sails that you take down, and stored below when they are not being used.
If you roller furl your sails, you probably would prefer the convienience of not having to mess with placing a cover on the sail over the slight loss of performance the UV cover would cause. I'm not sure who the market for the thing is.
I had though it would be a nice to have if a big (named) storm were coming while the boat was in its slip as it looks like it would prevent a sail from unfurling and flogging itself to death, but again, it would be just as simple to pull the sail down a put it away and that doesn't cost any extra.
