    I have an STC Fast Trac and leave it on year round. No problems outside of a little leaking at the zipper ends when the snow melts off.

    I have the same as Wayne, No problems at all, I put the hard top on from Thanksgiving till March, and have no problems, My hard top just sits in the gravel drive and neither leak wehn I switch. The only reason I go with the hard top in winter is all the crap that falls from the trees around our house.

    I have a Can-Back, I think they are awesome but pricy.
    Might take some time to switch but they are tough.
