Not as good
Went on a trip, the wind blew this off and I never saw it again. The way it attaches is ineffective .

Fits nicely
I read some review prior to ordering and was a bit concerned it would not fit snugly; however, it does and the wrap-around Velcro fastener secures it to the pitot tube nicely. It appears to be a very good product for a C182.

not great
It blew off the first time I used it and cannot find it. It was not snug. I fastened it as tightly as I could. I like Sporty's but this was not a good experience.

Did not fit on 2008 PA-46
The product appears to be well made. However it would not stay on my PA-46. Unless it was put on very carefully, even the lightest breeze from behind would remove it. It could never be secured from a strong aft breeze. I picked it up off the ramp a number of times before it finally blew off and was lost for good. However, if it fits your pitot it would probably be fine.

Works well. Just be sure you engage the Velcro really tight, otherwise the wind can pull it off.

Good, but take care when strapping it down...
I wrote the guest review about losing this in the wind off my 172. Sporty's customer service responded to my review and sent me a new one free, so here is one more endorsement for their excellent customer service. I have since used this cover for a couple years now with multiple pilots and students flying the plane. It works very well and the Velcro is very secure, as long as you take care to make sure it I see fully synched down there is maximum and firm Velcro contact. If not it may go bye bye in strong wind, as mine recently did again. What I like about it it's that you can wrap it to fit your pitot tube, as opposed to forcing it or stretching it the and causing stress to it. It's a great cover, but be sure to strap it down tight and rub your fingers over the Velcro to be sure. I like it enough that I am ordering another one. I will attribute losing both to operator error.

Cons: Too loose of a fit This pitot cover disappeared off my Cessna 172 with the first use, I believe due to winds from a storm that came through at Kissimmee Regional. Too loose of a fit. The FBO gave me an old pitot cover they had laying around, which has a vinyl glove that is a tight fit and stretches over the pitot tube, and have been using it since.
