ok, thanks guys. I think im going to end up going with a windvest. From the research i have done it looks like the windvest might provide a little better wind protection.

Any comparison between the windvest and freedom shield? also interested. They basically look the same... are they the same? sounds like windvest has been around longer. Freedom comes with new well nuts and trim... not sure how much that matters. I don't use the window trim now and want to be able to switch between shields so unsure if the "improved" wellnuts are universal. Is there any difference in function? Any difference in look? Freedom is supposedly thicker. I would love any feedback from anyone who has seen them in person or used both. J&P is having an open house in Iowa this saturday where I can pick up a windvest. Otherwise I have to order a Freedom. Would love some input from those who have used.
