They don't seem that different from the outside. The latch system on the TonnoPro seems to be of lower quality but the aluminum ribbed system and the functionality seem pretty similar. I actually like the fact that the HardHat is a hard cover. If somebody wants to cut open the TonnoPro with a knife, can they? They can't with the HardHat. Vinyl deteriorating? Maybe it's a problem in PHX where you live, but here in the PNW I just give it the occasional maintenance with 303 and it looks like new so far. Time will tell, since I've only had mine 6 months, but the material seems to hold up OK for other people on TW. OP is from Calgary so I'm not sure if that would really be an issue.
How would the TonnoPro hold up to a foot of snow? I used an AutoAnything
discount and probably paid $200 more than TonnoPro, but I personally feel it's worth it. At least people can take a look at the options and decide for themselves what they want. Glad you like your TonnoPro - have you received it yet?
