I have the nylon fender covers since they are better at not soaking up water and work great on not marking up your hull side.

Fleece will work, but don't see them lasting long
Wife used some sunbrella and made covers for ours and that was 15+ years, still look good

I had a set of 4 of those sent to me as a gift. The sender made a small mistake and ordered them in the wrong color.
So he had another set made for me (and Monsoon).

The correct ones (black) were sold with the boat. The wrong color set (blue) we still use on the Pontoon boat. And they have held up FANTASTICALLY. No fade, no tearing, and they are the softest I've seen.

We use spandex covers that we bought on Amazon. They don't last forever, and do fade a bit. But they are cheap enough to replace every season. They don't scratch painted boats.

I've been using the fleece covers from Main Coast for years now. My hull is black so everything marks it up. The fleece works well at protecting the hull but they do fade quickly. I replace them every couple of years
