Chris (Badger) and I had a good little write-up on them that I'l ltry to find for you.

The guy in the video made them look like a more permanent feature of the truck, whereas the Badger Coachworks Canvas Door Tops are more for just weekend use or short trips when you already have the permanent door tops out and want something to be able to install and uninstall quickly.

One thing that sucked about mine is that I had them unzipped driving down the road with no passenger (I probably should have just taken them out for the trip) and so the plastic window was draped down on the interior side of the truck. I hit a speed that created an air bubble and threw the plastic window over from the interior side to the exterior side and so it was flapping and slapping up against the paint on the exterior of my truck. I was on the highway in the left-most lane, so by the time I got over to the right lane and pulled over, it had already scratched the shit out of both the plastic window as well as the exterior of my door bottom.

They have very limited uses in my book (and Chris would agree with that) but I am happy with them for what they're to be used for (now that I have a better idea of what that is). If you want something light that you can install/uninstall quickly to block some wind/sand, etc. and be able to unzip them to get some food from a drive through or something like that, then these are nice. If you expect them to be able to replace your real windows, you'll be sorely disappointed.

I would use them to just plug in case it rains.

Then completely slide out and remove when traveling.

Exmoor Trim used to sell those, but at the time I was looking at them, they were stupid expensive to ship. They may have been discontinued.

I like the idea.

I love that his door won't stay open, just like mine.

They'll block some rain, but mine have never really created a seal at the top where it should meet the gutter kit, unlike my permanent door tops. At higher speeds you'll notice that the canvas door tops begin to tip outward a bit. As I said if you want something super light to just throw in there when needed - for a random sun storm or the like - then these will suit that purpose.
