    My buddy just picked up the Advantage Hard Hat (it's the Torza with an added layer of plastic/composite) and it has the same clips as the Advantage Torza. If security/snow isn't an issue, I'd recommend the Torza soft top.

    Damn the Trifecta has gone up in price. I paid $300 shipped in 2007.
    So my vote is the trifecta. I have had mine since March 2007 with no issues. The cover has been on and off a lot & seen lots of use in past 3 yrs. No water has gotten in & has held well in the harsh winter up here.

    Add another vote for the Extang Trifecta. I really like mine. No issues with it yet

    So this holds up well under the weight of snow? I'm seriously considering one of these and that's one of my concerns.

    Thanks for the feedback so far. To those with the Extang do you find any issues with the locking handles? They look kind of large and like they stick down quite a bit.

    There are times when the back of my truck is full full full ie. traveling at christmas or camping that I have to make sure my cargo is packed to reach the handles. This has only happened a couple of times but the honest answer is yes, it can be a pita at those times.

    I've got an EFX trifold. I think it's a just a rebranded torza, it has the exact same latches for the bed rail and all that. Anyways I like it a lot and it doesn't let any water in.
