I have the Rollbak cover an like it a lot, but it's not 100% waterproof. You will get some water that comes in from the corners of the tailgate in a heavy down pour but it's not too bad. The Undercover is also a nice cover that is 100% waterproof but you'll have to remove it completely if you want to haul anything. It really depends on what you are using the truck for.

I'm planning on one from DiamondBack.

Also one that would not give you full access to the bed without removing the cover. Depends on how you use your truck.

I have the Roll N Lock and I absolutely love it. It is by far the best cover I have ever owned. It doesn't leak a bit on me and it comes with a key to lock it. http://www.rollnlock.com/

Wow, Those diamond back covers are cool. I wanted something that I could easily access the entire bed with, However, you don't really need that as those diamond backs almost turn your truck into a flatbed.

But they are kinda pricy. Hmm....

So far the best I have seen is some of these Hard fold covers. They seems to offer the best of both worlds. Can fold and Not take up any bed space, Protect the cab, but without the downfalls of a soft cover, And they can be had for anywhere from $500 to $700. Im pretty sure that is what I am gonna get in the next couple months. I am still kicking myself for not having my dealership throw that and a bed liner in the deal.

You could get your self a spray-in bed liner at a discount by talking to your dealer/sales manager. I have had both and a spray-in is vastly better. I as a after though ask my dealer what he could do for me, gave me a price I knew was a good'n. After going to the shop to get it done, there up an the board above the cash register was the listed prices for the various beds for the walk in guy. Mine was $145.00 below that. I paid at the dealership.

I've had the Bakflip on my 2010 and now I have the Rollbak. Both were great but I like my Rollbak much better. Not sure what your issue is on the rolling covers...

I've had the undercover hard top, soft top and now I have the bakflip F1.

Soft top ebay brand-
Looked good for a few months then faded, leaked, snaps broke and I ended up with a truck cape as if I were freakin superman.<--POS cover

Undercover-
Did not fade, leak(water proof), or break (strong). Mounts over the rails so it doesn't give the flush cover look. kept all the water out at the expense of also keeping out a lot of stuff I needed to haul. However, Cover gets fkn HOT AS HELL!

Bakflip F1-
Has not Faded, leaked(water resistant) or broken(strong). Flush mounts giving that smooth cover look. Folds up which allows me to use my bed without sacrifice. doesn't get hot. however, being water resistant compared to water proof does allow a little moisture to get into the bed.

I had a Extang SolidFold (same basic cover as a Bakflip, just different brand), and switched to the Rollbak.
I like the rolling cover, but my wife likes the folding style better. Not that it's hard to roll out the canister style, but it does take a little effort since it's spring loaded, and she doesn't like that so much.
I still have my SolidFold, so I'm selling the RollBak. I've got an add in the classifieds if you're interested in it. I'll be going to PA next month so I'd be heading your direction. If you want to meet me in the Lycoming county area (or somewhere along I80 between Ohio and there) I can toss it in the back of the truck on our way out.

It's used, but in pretty good shape. I say pretty good, because there is a spot of black that will need touched up, that appears to have chipped off from age. It functions like it's supposed to though. I've got pics on my classified too, here's a link if you want to check it outShots' Rollbak. I'm selling it for $400.

Yes, It is very nice. However, It is also very expensive and doesn't allow even close to full access to the bed.
