Default Hotbodies or Puig windscreen?

Hey, I've been looking at these two... and the only difference i can see in pictures on websites is the price. Is one better then the other?

I'm lookin at the smoke color, and hotbodies wants about 70 bucks and puig wants about 82 bucks.... i found the puig one on kneedraggers and the hotbodies on Forward motion.

Does it come down to personal preference or is there a quality difference?

IMO the Puig is a little thicker and better quality.

Yep, split the difference and go with Zero Gravity, it's a cooler name too!

Cover your instrument panel!!! I have a Puig and it is nice EXCEPT it will focus the light onto your "dash" and you will end up with little melted holes in on tour speedo/cluster. Just be careful parking it in the sunlight for hours at a time in the summer.

In hindsight, I would have gone with the Zero Gravity. It is thinner, but it's an overall better fit/quality that the Puig.

What area do you live in? I wonder how hot it needs to get for that to happen.
