The Best Canopy

Hi All, In Australia we can only get Leer or Snugtop canopy's, any advise on which is better?
I am after lift up side windows, auto locking windows, reinforced roof for racks and lined.
there is a $2,000 Aus difference in price over here for similar canopies

Thanks Keith

I had a Snugtop Rebel canopy on my old LLY and it worked great. I have a Leer 800 tonneau cover on our current LBZ and it also works very well. Both were paint to match and the paint held up good dispite the relatively harsh weather (Low temp max -10F, High temp max 105F). Hardware is similar quality. I would not hesitate to buy either brand. For me it would come down to price and appearance as I was very pleased with both. I do know when I bought the snugtop I also priced a similar spec Leer at the same shop and the Leer was more money. I liked the appearance of the Snug top better but even that only amounted to small changes

I had a Leer 100XL on the previous truck and had no problems. No leaks whatsoever.
