As fall has moved into the Midwest, our hens have really appreciated the wind breaks and the rain protection. It’s super easy to put up and adjust. In the summer, I’ll swap these out for some shade protection.

Firstly the ridged edge makes it difficult to straighten each sheet and takes several days of warm temperature to make full use of the width due to the number of stubborn wrinkles. As another reviewer mentioned if you have a run that's 3mx3m or larger it will need a large number of sheets to cover the roof as each sheet needs to be overlapped to avoid seepage and therefore each sheet ends up with not much width and the length just about covers the roof from one side to the other leaving the sides exposed. This ends up very costly. You are then left with a large number of elastic bungees criss crossing one another to secure each sheet which looks messy. To be honest we wished we had purchased a larger clear tarpaulin.

These clear covers are excellent in every way for covering the top of the put-together metal chicken run that also comes from Omlet. I am thrilled with both the run and the covers....I just wish that the covers could be both longer and wider. Our run is over 21 feet long, and with the covers only spanning about 3 feet (have to take overlap into account too), you can imagine how many of the covers I have to purchase to cover the run. We live with rain and snow and lots of wind, so I've had to supplement with other tarps and even high grade clear vinyl tarps to extend farther down around the sides of the run during bad weather. The quality of the Omlet tarps/covers is beyond awesome, though, so for most runs, they would be perfect alone. Thanks Omlet!!

Excellent robust covers, great asset to my chicken run.
I bought 2 of these for the top half of the sides of the run as whilst the roof cover (purchased earlier) was keeping the run dry, the wind blowing through the run could be keen. These covers provide a bit of a wind break. Because they are fitted horizontally, the gutter edges don't form a water tight seal with the roof covering so I have sealed them together with clear Gorilla tape which works a treat and has survived some pretty evil weather.

The cover was easy to fit and provides good cover for our chickens in wet weather.
The cover was easy to attach and is of good quality. It is thick enough to withstand high winds. It helps to keep the run area and the rabbits drier, meaning that they can be out in the run area in the rain.
Great product so far. Suggestion for future covers; have some eyelets in the center of the length too.
4 years in and a house move later, the cover had some damage and was letting rain in. Replaced, the outdoor run looks like new again and guinea pigs can roam around and I don't have any concerns about them getting cold and wet.
Purchase well worth it,the covers fit perfect and are doing a great job keeping my walk in pen dry,very pleased..
