    I read the review of the Can-Back, and it said that there were leaks at the cab seam. Has anyone else experienced this? (if so, have you been able to fix it?) Would anyone recommend against using it for my year-round top (rain here, no snow)? Thanks for helping me out.

    Also, was it the Pachyderm, or the regular Can-Back that was reviewed?

    I should update that, when I first got the top I had a few leaks at the cab area, I pulled off the top and reinstalled the cab part making sure to really tighten that part down and it hasn't leaked since. I have had the top on for about a year and a half now with no problems with snow and rain. I don't plan on ever putting the hard top on again - EVER.

    Does it have any provisions for locking the flaps down for security? How bad is the wind noise?

    No locking provisions, but if it did all you would need with any top is a sharp knife. Wind noise isn't bad but it will rattle a tad if it gets real windy.
