Covers.. Regular or Vented?

I am wanting to get a cover for my new toy. Should I go for the vented or regular? Opinions?

Thanks in advance.


  • Being in Vegas I don't think humidity will be your problem but...The vented cover is made with much better material and looks like it would last longer. Here in Florida where we often have 90-95% humidity the vented is much better. I have both and I would spend the extra money and get the vented. In your case I think it would be a matter of personal preference. If cost is not an issue I would lean towards the vented. See if your dealer will let you take them out of the package and then decide. :)
  • I have the vented cover and though it lets in some rain, it also probably dissipates a little heat so it's more forgiving when you put it on a still warm Egg.
  • This cover is made from same material as the marine industry uses.It 's not vinyl and it breathes.No Vent needed.
    It's made by cover works.It fits like a glove. You can find him on the nakedwhiz site.Comes with a warranty
  • I bought the vented cover, because that was the only cover my dealer had when I got my LBGE. I am glad I did because I am able to put the cover on as soon as the cook is over, without waiting for a cooldown. This feature really came into play this past weekend with all of the rain we had in New Orleans. I was able to put the cover on as soon as I finished cooking Sunday evening. I have not seen or examined any other cover, but the vented one appears to be of good quality and seems to be holding up well, although I have not been through the "cold" weather yet. :laugh:

    Hmm, I am starting to wonder if, since I am in Las Vegas, if I even really need a cover?

    It doesn't rain much here anyway... are there any parts that rust if it does get wet?
