    So i tried the Hoodieshade and for 30 bucks the thing isn't that great when mounted to the radio? Anyone tried any other brands?

    I got this one, figured for $12 I couldn't go wrong. It works pretty well, fits good and folds flat for packing. Had to make one modification though, the material on the back is to thick (or the arms on the mount are to short) so I had to cut a little of the back away to make it work. No big deal and now it works fine. If you decide to get it PM me and I will sent you a photo of the mod.

    Looks like an updated version, maybe it won't need the mod?

    Cardboard box cut to fit. Recyclable, customisable and yours for the price of some crunchie nut cornflakes. You have the added benefit of being able to eat the cereal!

    There is a thread somewhere where people have posted images and they're pretty good!

    I just received this one and it works great. I was impressed to say the least. I got the magnetic version.
