Oxford Aquatex Cover
Great low cost cover. Stronger than a South Philly hood-cat
I bought this cover in size large and it fits my '84 Honda Magna perfectly. It's got a bit of slack, but because of the ingenious belly clip, it doesn't bellow up and fill with air, like most other covers.
The branding is big and loud, which makes it easy to give people directions to my house. I am not such a huge fan of big branding like that, but since this is only going to be on my bike when I'm not, I was willing to forgo that concern. On my cover, the logo is HUGE and across the side, not on the front like in the picture.
The material is light, kind of reminds me of the type of nylon used in tents. In a torrential downpour, it does suck up some water, but for the price, it's acceptable.
One afternoon, a South Philly hood cat was hanging out on my stoop. When I went to take my dog out, the cat freaked out and, in an attempt to show dominance, tried to shred the nearest convenient thing. At that moment, it was my covered motorcycle. The cat puffed up and jumped and attacked my bike with reckless abandon. It was like watching Ali v. Liston, except in this case, all the butterfly-floating and bee-stinging was for naught. After the feline onslaught, there was barely a scratch on the cover and only one tiny puncture, that I was able to fix with a tent patch kit.

Not sure if this is the best option for long term outside storage.
The second day I ordered this, it rained for two and a half days straight, hard. The cover did not keep the bike completely dry, so I went and used a can and a half of waterproofing spray on it, it rained again for a day and the bike still was not completely dry. So I'm not sure if it's the cover itself or the fact that water vapor is coming up from under the bike itself. Either way, It's an OK cover, and you get what you pay for. For what it's worth, I haven't returned it and I'm going to keep it anyway.

Great cover in the Rain.
I purchased this cover because I could not get my bike into my garage for a few days and a weekend of rain storms were forcasted. The cover worked great, it rained for 3 days straight and my bike was dry as a bone, and the clip to secure the cover under the bike worked great to keep the cover secure with the wind.

Fits my BMW G650 GS perfectly. Good quality made and looks very good on the bike, does not hang or appear to be loose/baggy.

Flimsy, compared to Stormex
I used to have a Stormex cover before, on my previous bike (Suzuki SV 650). This one feels markedly more flimsy. It's also too short to cover a tall dual sport such as my current Kawasaki Versys 650.

Does the job
So far, it's doing a great job in freezing weather. Jury's still out on what this product will be doing in two years, but so far, it's holding up well. It's a good value.

Gets the job done!
It does exactly what it says: protects the bike from the elements. The fit is decent, and it doesn't look as though it'll blow away.
