When an ostensibly easy project is much more difficult than it may seem. My wife and I live in rainy Seattle, Washington, where showers are more typical than bikes. Which is why us Northwesteners need all the help we can get when it comes to protecting our stuff from unceasing rain. And I have many belongings that need guarding: a car, a boat, and an ATV. To preserve them I use specially designed tarp seat covers for jeep wrangler to keep the weather out, so my things can last longer.
These tarps do a fantastic job at keeping moisture out, and they are more pliable than an awning. For shame all those toys can't fit below my patio area. They tidily fold up when I don't need them.
I'm grateful my stuff has a method to stand the rain. I just hope they make something to help me.
