When you purchase a Tonneau Cover, you're making an important investment. You're not just plunking down a big chunk of change for a single product - you're also trusting your precious, valuable cargo every time you store it in your bed. Therefore, it's important that you make the most informed shopping decision you can. Let's take a look at two high-quality, folding hard tonneau covers, the BakFlip and the UnderCover Flex, to help you find the best tonneau cover for your truck and your cargo protecting needs.
BAK Industries truly blew the tonneau cover game wide open with the release of the BakFlip Tonneau Cover. By combining the security and weather protection of a Hard-Top Tonneau Cover with the convenience and bed access of a Folding Bed Cover, the folks at BAK proved that you really could have your cake and eat it too.
BakFlip Tonneau Covers all have virtually the same rugged design features, from injection-molded latch housings and hardware to integrated drain channels that send rainwater away from the bed. Its modular latching and locking system stops thieves from getting to your stuff, and when you need to use your whole bed the BakFlip folds all the way open and stows behind your rear window. Plus, every model is custom-designed to your exact truck bed, for a precise fit and a quick installation.
Choose from three different models, each with slightly different materials and finishes: The classic BakFlip G2 features aluminum panels, while the BakFlip HD Tonneau Cover utilizes aircraft-grade aluminum frames and a modified core material to make it both lighter and stronger. The new BakFlip FiberMax is built with fiberglass-reinforced polymer on top and aluminum on the underside for the best weight/strength stats, and its high-density EPS core stays cool to the touch. Every model installs in just minutes and is backed with up a 1 or 2-Year Warranty.

Since its introduction several years ago, the BakFlip's revolutionary design has influenced a new generation of hard folding truck bed covers. Among them is the UnderCover Flex Tonneau Cover. The Flex is similarly designed with a series of folding panels that open up to provide full bed access. For strong weather and anti-theft protection, a secure and easy-to-handle design, and a no-drill installation, the UnderCover Flex is a great way to go. Just note, however, that the BakFlip utilizes original, patented design features that cannot be found anywhere else. Also, while the UnderCover Flex is a newcomer, the BakFlip has had many years on the market to develop, upgrade, and solidify its design.
