Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ObjectiveReviewer Great for rainy Florida
In Florida it rains almost every day in summer, so protecting your outdoor furniture is a must. One problem with traditional patio covers, is that the water pools in the middle and sits causing other issues. The great thing with this cover, is that it comes with a large inflatable bubble of sorts (the included handheld pump makes inflating this very easy) that you place in the center of the furniture you are wanting to protect. The bubble causes the water to roll off the sides and no longer pool in the center. Another consideration is wind. Wind can easily catch the bottom of the cover and blow it away. Tethering the bottom to the legs of the furniture does the trick.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dcmikez very nice cover won't pool water
This is a simple improvement on the standard patio furniture cover. It comes with a large balloon that you inflate (with a pump) and then secure to the table top and end chairs. You then place the cover over top of it. The only issue I have with the cover is that you need to secure the bottom of it to the table and chair legs with individual ties, which can be a bit tedious. A drawstring type fastener would have been preferred for convenience, but this may be a more effective method.
The cover is a great soft material, and it's very wrinkly. The manufacturer says the wrinkles will fall out themselves in a week or two, which has happened with ours, but not to the full extent they should. I will point out that I purchased a larger cover than I needed and that may add to the extra wrinkles. Regardless the cover was easy to install, it looks better than most covers, and it's doing a great job so far. We had some snow which piled up on the cover, but as soon as it melted all the water ran off and did not pool between the chairs and table. Very effective.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Faisal Cover concept is brilliant
With Vinyl Inflatable Airbag, the patio cover concept is brilliant and it certainly delivers on its functionality of protecting our outdoor furniture. This cover has straps at the bottom (every 3 feet or so) to secure itself to the furniture. Our area is very windy so it is peace of mind knowing that all of it can be tied down to the furniture.
Talking about material, it was not evenly colored and had white patches throughout the fabric however the quality of the sewing is commendable. Another issue was that the Airbag ties were not long enough to secure and needed to be extended with our own rope.
The inflator is very light weight, small yet powerful, requires 16 hours of initial charge and inflates/deflates the Airbag in less than 2 minutes. I like the fact that I can use the same inflator for air beds, tubing and boats with provided adaptors.
I would have given 5 stars if the fabric color was evenly toned and not spotty and the airbag ties were longer. Overall, it provides good coverage from sun and rain.

I wasn't quite sure why there was an inflatable part involved in this product. Now I get it. The inflatable bladder lies on top of the table to keep the cover "domed" so that rain, snow, etc. does not pool in it. It was all super easy to use. The only "issue" that I had with this was the fact that I had to charge the air pump for 10 hours before I could inflate the bladder. That would have been nice to know ahead of time, but it really wasn't a big deal. Also, when you plug in the air pump to charge, there are no indicator lights to let you know that it is charging, or even that it has completed charging. I just made sure that the air pump was plugged in to charge for more than 10 hours, then took it outside with me to put the cover on our patio furniture. I laid the bladder on the table and tied down one end to the table (2 ties per end). I then put the air pump into the bladder using the extension that came with it and turned it on. It inflated in less than 1 minute, maybe even less than 30 seconds. Once it was inflated, I tied the other end down (the last 2 ties). In hindsight, I think I may have tied down all 4 before starting to inflate. The second set was a bit difficult to tie because the bladder was completely inflated. I then disconnected the air pump and pulled out the cover. This product covered the table AND all 6 of the chairs. There is a tie-down for each leg of the table, as well as for each chair (I tied mine to the back crossbars on each of the chairs). It looks very nice on our back deck and we didn't have to try to eke some room out of the storage shed to put the furniture. According to the literature that came with it, the cover can be spot-cleaned or even ran through the washing machine. Very convenient! I have been telling everyone I know how great this product is!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Fantastic Cover!!
I bought this cover because I liked the idea of the airbag under the cover. Soon after installing the cover, we experienced some heavy rains and very windy conditions. I was surprised to find that the cover did as promised because I checked more than a few times and my furniture was perfectly dry and the cover firmly in place. It looks great and is easy to put on and take off. This cover is very well made and a great buy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by akmd1029 poor quality for the $$
I purchased this cover in October. The air membrane split along the seam in early December after a very light snowfall. The manufacturer replaced the air membrane for no charge, but the second membrane also broke by late January. Now the chair backs are poking holes in the cover. It is very thin and cheaply made. I'll look for a less expensive cover next winter since I will probably have to replace it each year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chicagostraw So far, so good
I bought this table cover in the early autumn to protect my deck furniture from the winter dirt. So far, it's working fine. It is a very lightweight cover, so you must tie it down to the chair legs or else it will blow off. The air bladder it came with is a nice feature to keep the center of the cover higher than the backs of the chairs and cause water to roll off.
