At first glance you would think that this is a soft tonneau cover but upon further inspection you would quickly learn that it is a folding tonneau cover with a soft outer cover and a plastic underneath. You get the great look of the soft cover but the protection and security of a hard cover. Open the tailgate, turn the release latches and fold the cover towards the cab. Easy access to your cargo area makes a folding tonneau cover very appealing to a pickup truck owner. You have the option of 8 oz vinyl or 18 ounce rag top for the outer covering.
