I have extensive testing with my cover and EMI reducer [aluminum cover] in heat. Not once have I had a screen issue. There is not a day where it is under 85 where I hunt. Also full sun most days.

Maybe, LOL.......No I just did get a new sofa and ottoman and keep matching blankets across the seats so my 4 yr old does not ruin it as fast.

An update... I am still using my cover and it has caused no issues and I have been out in temps around 83 down the shore. I like the padding on the arm cuff but it sure does get sweaty.

May try the Doc's arm cuff padding, anybody using one of those?

So I got the Doc's arm cuff padding and used it for 3 hours last weekend. I am up in the air if I am going to keep it on vs the simple neoprene one I had on previously. I have a large arm and the Doc's padding seems a little short side-to-side and doesn't seat entirely in the bottom center of the cuff leaving my Velcro strap only holding on by a inch or so. I could try finding a longer strap I guess. The craftmanship is not very good and the holes don't line up as nice as it should. Can't say I would recommend this for anyone looking for padding on the arm cuff.
