Car Cover for Hail

Does anyone know of a good car cover that will protect against hail? I'm on a military base with no cover and it seems to want to hail here a lot.

Unfortunately, a car cover alone will not protect you from hail. If you have hail problems, get a normal out door car cover. Then go to a home furnishing store, and get some thick flannel or 100% cotton comforter. Put the comforter on the car (you only need to cover the hood, top, and rear top). Then put on the Car Cover.

Hrmm, I wonder if I can get one sewn into the car cover then just seal the seams.

Hmmm.... not a bad idea. I also live on a military installation with no covered parking.

I would also recommend using an outdoor car cover, and then putting a tarp over it. I get scared putting flannel or something like that, because one time I did and the coloring leaked from the sheet I used and ruined my paint

they tried to make shooting feral cats a legal hunting sport in wisconsin ( I was for it

I found some decent ones from empire. This cover was a replacement cover for a custom cover that cost three times as much and started leaking water and collecting dust under the cover in less than a year. My Empire cover is 4 months old, has survived numerous strong thunderstorms and seering Texas sun, and so far is exceeding my expectations. I have 3 cars under cover, soon the other two will be covered by Empire.
