DryGuard ATV Cover

Waterproof, not water-resistant

Up until now, most ATV covers were water-resistant rather than water-proof. The problem, for the most part, was not with the material, but with the seams. Water would seep through these weak points in the cover, saturating the ATV and encouraging mold and mildew growth.

Now, we have the DryGuard ATV cover from Classic Accessories. With taped seams to prevent seepage, laminated material for extra water-proofing and an integrated attachment system for towing, this cover is one of, if not the, best on the market. Happy ATVing and protect that machine!


A little water isn't going to hurt anything.

People always ask me if my covers are waterproof. I always have to say that they are water-resistant. The difference is mainly that waterproof boat covers will not allow any moisture through them, regardless of how long the water has been standing, how much comes down, or whether the cover is sloped. In short, a waterproof cover is like wrapping your boat in visqueen and dropping it in a plastic bag.

Why aren’t my covers waterproof, you ask? Well, covers that won’t let water in, won’t let water out. In other words, they don’t ‘breathe,’ causing all kinds of nasty problems like mold and mildew. Waterproof covers must have vents to avoid this, and consequently, can let in even more moisture and other undesirables than a water-resistant cover.

Water-resistant materials: coated polyester, canvas, nylon

Water-proof materials: vinyl, polypropylene

Keep this in mind when shopping for a cover.
