23 hours. Just being honest! Haha! Seriously though I have owned a few different types and this one for the price is really amazing. It’s really all I need.
Yeah I forgot to pull mine out into the storm we got here in Houston so I didn't get to check the waterproof. I'll probably go through the car wash today. Did you use both foam strips?

No. Just the front strip. I will keep an eye on it and decide whether to do the other one later.

Does anyone have updates on water testing for the T1? I have my eye on this and it appears to be perfect for my needs. Plus, its currently rolling on Amazon for $179 which is pretty ridiculous for a decent roll cover.

This is quite interesting. I have had BAK Revolver covers on my last 2 trucks, and after a couple of years the felt on the underside comes unglued, and on my last one, the vinyl started separating from the aluminum underneath. Plus, they're heavy (90lbs).

With this cover, how do you keep dirt out of the velcro, or clean it out?

I like the idea of completely removing the cover when the full bed is needed, is that possible with this? It looks like the clamps are easy to install/remove from the bed rails too.

Thanks,

-John

I have the T3 which is the soft tri fold. Washed my truck a couple of times and had some heavy rains with down pours. Have no problem with any water getting in and I didn't use any of the strips.

I ended up getting this Tyger T1 on Amazon. $179 with one day delivery. Just finished installing and it took about an hour to install. I took my time and had a couple Friday evening beers so if I was in a hurry I'm sure it could have been 20-30 mins.

I'm pretty impressed with the hardware and sealing. Especially with the price point. It came with two tape seal strips. I installed the thicker strip near the front of the bed and the thinner strip I attached to underneath the rear of the cover. Time will tell with water leakage but I'm optimistic. I have a trip tomorrow where it may rain for about two hours of the ride so it will provide a good test.20190614_175631.jpg

I too just installed the same one on my truck!

My front corners aren't bad at all. I am noticing some minimal seepage from water near the tailgate this morning. I think it is more a product of the tailgate than the cover. Overall I'm pretty happy.

yup i understand what youre saying, i took it into a carwas today..and this was uses some high pressure water all the way around and from the top. After it all i opened up the tailgate and found water near the front. This must be from what you described. It should do just fine with normal rain

I have the T3 soft folding cover as well, while I love the price point and quality, one of the corners of the cover on the tailgate is slightly raised. Its as if the clamp is to long and I cant compensate to make the latch shorter so it tightens. The clamp does tighten, but its slightly loose compared to the rest of the clamps. While its a first world problem, its bugs me like no other that its not perfectly flat. Anyone else have this
issue?

Im thinking since its just hat one clamp, Im going to contact Tyger and see if they can send me a replacement clamp. maybe that will fix the issue. Other than that though, no issues with water and ive taken through multiple car washes and rain

So whats the finally conclusion with this one?
I'm giving it a thumbs up. I've been through a couple rain storms over the past week and it keeps the bed dry... outside of the normal seepage from the OEM tailgate. For the price and convenience of a quick roll cover it is solid so far from me. Very easy to roll up and roll back to lock it in place.

Pretty much what JTR said.
Raining all afternoon here. Had to go out and get some gas. Coming down hard on my way home. Checked the back, not a drop of water.
For the price its amazing and im very very happy
