Silver ducksback covers

Anyone got one? Are they the same as the blue ebay covers, but silver?

The blue ones don't seem to be available anymore and the one on the Ballistic took a bit of a beating during the refurb so I'd like to replace it.

Yes they are very good for an off the shelf cover, you are more then welcome to have a look at it before you part with your money

Yes - after 3 years in the open my blue one finally gave up - I replaced it with a silver one and it seems of similar quality. Hard to beat for the money!

Cheers Trevor, makes me a bit more confident. I'm hoping they're exactly the same dimensions as well as the biggest one fits the Ballistic like it was made for it.

The biggest silver one is the same size as the biggest old blue one - they both fit the Shearwater perfectly.
One small difference is the blue one had a strap that went round behind the A-frame, which the silver one doesn't seem to have. It wouldn't be hard to take the old one off the blue cover and sew it onto the silver one tho.

Hi guys, how are you?

My cover is looking a bit sad now. Do they do one suitable for ribcraft 585? If so could one of you post a link?
Thanks very much 80)
