Dowco Climashield Plus

Is this a good Fabric / Cover?
Not much info other than polyester using Dowco Colorlok fibers.

Hi Mike,
Polyesters as a whole, such as ; Dowco Colorlok are getting better all of the time. They are offering a 5 year warranty on this boat fabric. That is about as good as it gets from a polyester.
What can you expect? Some color fading as it ages, most fabrics do that. It is hard to say what generation this fabric is from. Example, Aqualon vs Weathermax 80. Both are polyesters, but one out performs the other hands down. So it will be hard to say how it will perform in the long run. I think you are pretty safe with fabrics that offer a warranty of 5 years. May not be pretty in 5 years, but should still be functional. So you should be pretty safe.
