I realise the product description says this cover is only for occasional use, but I was a little disappointed with the material and quality of stitching. The material feels quite thin and that it could be easily damaged in normal use. More importantly, if one puts the cover over your head to check for holes, in a few places you can see daylight through tiny holes along the stitching. At the end of one run of stitching there is a 1-2mm hole that may let water in. Time will tell whether this is the case. For the price paid this is disappointing.
You have purchased TeleGizmo's budget cover (they also offer a stronger more expensive version) but we are confident when you have had an opportunity to actually use it you will be surprised at how tough it is :-)
If not, then you are welcome to return it for replacement or refund.
