Can anyone rate the escape gear dash cover?

I think that a lot of people here, have the escape gear dash cover in their patrols. How do you rate the quality? From easy access to how well it sticks. I've only used 4x4 assist's dash cover and even though its great quality with lots of pockets and storage, it did not stick that "lekka" to the dashboard. It kept of ripping off when you opened one of the velcro latches on the pockets. But yes, R580 to R795 is a big difference.

Here is the one by 4x4 assist

I have an Escape gear dashcover in the 4.5.

At some point (probably about 10 years from now after buying the wife her 4.8), she may get one as well.

No issues. Love it. Never unstuck itself itself or anything... And I have put my truck through its paces...
