Invented, developed over a 5 year period, in North Texas, an area famous for its wind, it has been tested in wind gusts as high as 80 mph.
The system cinches around the wheels of the vehicle, combined with positioning your vehicle as we recommend (details included), means winds are unable to find their way under the cover.
It creates an envelope of high volume air around your vehicle, which means the force of the wind is met with the force of the high volume air within the system.
EASY & FAST ASSEMBLY
PROTECTION WITHIN 5-8 MINUTES
The Hail Protection System installs in 5-10 minutes after a practice install and begins to protect your vehicle immediately upon activation. It will stop hail and become fully protected within 5-8 minutes depending on the cover and power source.
The system can be removed and repacked in the small, sleeping bag style bag quickly after use.

The best way to determine the size you need is to measure the length of your vehicle from bumper to bumper. Although there are a few other variables to consider with trucks. Please make sure to purchase the size that is specifically sized for your vehicle. Purchasing the next size up won't provide more protection and will not install correctly on your vehicle
Breathable fabric allows moisture (even from the dew point) and heat (from the outside environment) to escape from your vehicle’s paint finish. Trapped moisture and heat on your paint finish are damaging to your vehicle paint finish. This is why most car covers utilize breathable fabric.
Beware of car covers that use PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) used in pool inflatables and covers that use rigid or flexible panels encased in breathable fabric. If the rigid or flexible panels are not breathable, then it doesn't matter what they are encased in. These covers will not allow moisture to properly evaporate from your vehicle paint finish and will not allow heat to properly escape. PVC car covers will also rub like rubber on your vehicle, especially in wind, marring the finish of your vehicle. The Hail Protector breathable fabric layer that rest on your vehicle doesn't move, even under wind and the impact of hail stones.
No. The inner layer of the cover doesn't move. Even under storm conditions, the inner layer does not move. No friction, no scratches. In fact, if you reach inside of the cover, at the rear, where the velcro opening is located, you can attempt to move the inner layer physically with your hand and you'll see how difficult it is to move. This material was chosen and designed to protect your vehicle.
The cover will barely move in straight-line winds in excess of 30 mph. There is literally no move movement whatsoever from the inner layer that rests on the vehicle. This is due to high volume airflow inside the cover and the barrier that the outer layer provides. Beware of the covers or umbrella devices that do not cover your entire vehicle and then will enable winds to gather underneath the cover creating a sailing effect. Some use the words windproof and then in the fine print they say the device will break away, so it doesn't get damaged.
A 60 mph wind has a force of 350 pounds on a vehicle and on the cover attached to it. Your car will be lifted off the ground by a tornado before The Hail Protector System comes off your car, when properly installed and utilized.
The Hail Protector System uses high volume air, not high-pressure air. The system is designed to absorb the impact energy of hailstones. This means that, similar to an “egg toss”, the movement of the cover enables the cover to have strength beyond the same fabric held taut. The generally fragile shell of an egg can avoid breakage from throws or falls of great distance when the energy created by the mass and speed of the egg is cushioned by catching the egg in a fashion that slows it down versus an abrupt stop.
This makes the cover of Hail Protector System virtually impossible to penetrate.
Yes, a one-time assembly will take roughly 20 minutes, but becomes quicker the more you get used to it.
To make it as easy as possible, Hail Storm Products has created a step by step video instructions from unpacking your system to assembly to installation and removal.
The blower assembly included with each system runs continuously, when activated, due to the need for breathable fabric in any car cover.
The blower assembly may be powered by one of three included power options. The three power options include a “AA” battery pack (batteries not included) that will run the system for about one hour, a car accessory plug that will run the system for three hours without depleting the starting power of your vehicle (assuming the battery in your vehicle is of reasonable health), and an AC adapter that will run the system virtually indefinitely.
