Heavy vs light for a 41' sail winter cover?

Looking to make a winter cover for a 41' sailboat. Considering materials. Topnotch and Topnotch 9 seem to be the front runners. It's going to be a lot of material to complete the cover - heavy to move and expensive to buy - also a big job to make. I need it to last. Will the lighter material have a much shorter life cycle? Does the size of the cover have any bearing on the choice? Any other considerations? I have a Sailrite machine to make it with so I can sew the thicker material but I'm not very experienced working with it which means ease of fabrication does matter. Thanks for the help!
