Default has anyone used the soft topper shells?

instead of getting a fiberglass shell I found these listed and wanted to know if anyone has feedback about them.

I would hope not, watch there be a dis-claimer " do NOT use if in AZ " hahaha
I bet the plastic windows would yellow real fast though. I was not even thinking of the heat effect but yeah there is that.

same here after talking to them the price was way too high. estimate given was 938.56 and they would throw in a duffle bag for it.

hahahaha I laughed right in the phone, not really on purpose it just struck me funny as hell at the time.
so this is out

Back in January, I moved from Montana to Texas and needed a topper to keep the snow off boxes and totes in the bed. There are two decent topper sources in my town and one did indeed have a used one for a Flareside. Unfortunately, it was blue, but I had them repaint the thing. Even with that, the price was half what a new one would've cost, plus, I didn't need to wait a month for the thing to arrive from the factory!
