The CoolAss covers get better with every improvement, and the current version is pretty nice! They work as advertised and by the time they wear-out you got your moneys worth. If anyone recalls, I trashed talked CoolAss many moons ago because of quality, but now its worth every penny. Great product at a great price! Thank you for keeping my seat from being a butt griddle and my red stitching from turning pink.

Thank you so very much. We are indeed on our 5th-generation of custom material - this incredible fabric with an imbedded "scrim" for strength and durability, more UV protectant and the same great heat reflectivity and water-resistance (water-proof). Happy to be saving (line stolen from a CoolAss customer) the blue-jean clad butts of the world - one rump at a time! Get off the hot seat - get a CoolAss!

Best to all,

Brian

On scooters I do this with the CoolAss. I put a small grommet on each side, around the middle of the seat on each side. I put a small bungee cord thru the grommets before closing the seat. I actually did this because a terrible storm tried to kidnap the CoolAss but it barely hung on! Now with the grommets and the small bungee it will never run away in a serious storm. It also keeps haters from stealing the cover without damaging it. I'm picture dumb but the grommet idea works great.

Good idea! I have heard of other riders using Velcro tabs and bungees over the seat, but your idea sounds best. Thanks for sharing!

Brian Herwick,

I have always loved your product. I have one from +10 years ago. I just

On extended scooter trips, other riders would always remark favorably about your Coll Ass Seat Covers.

Great video! I was stoked to see that the GTS I just bought came with one of the old No Pets CoolAss covers. Might need to grab a newer one though.

WOW! How did that happen?? You have a collector's item! The NO PETS covers were made only in limited supply and for a very short time.

Of course, we have made significant changes in material since then - in fact, we are in our fifth-generation now. Stronger, more durable, more UV protectant and the same great heat-reflectivity and water resistance (water proof).

Hope to earn your continued business. You'll love the new CoolAss!

And thanks for the kudos on the video. Fun to make!

Best,

Brian

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried fitting the CoolAss in the GTS under-seat seatcover cubby? Since the CA is waterproof anyway, maybe I'll swap!

GREAT question and thanks for asking. We have had some customers do just that. I'm not sure if the "cubby" has changed in any way over the past several years, but my guess is - it would be a tight fit putting a Large CoolAss in there. On our website there's a pic of the pouches we pack CoolAss in for shipment to you. Many use this for storage. A well rolled-up CoolAss - stored in a pouch is about the size of a 16 oz. beer can. The "cubby under seat" is smaller than that and thus might be a pain to use w/ CoolAss. The more the pain, the less you would use it to store. Most Vespa / Piaggio riders simply just stuff the cover under the seat. No need for special storage - the cover is durable. Some have even told me they wrap beverages in CoolAss to keep them cool in under-seat storage. Don't you just love the ingenuity??

Regardless, we hope to earn your business. Nothing like a cool, dry and protected seat. With a CoolAss of course!

Best,

Brian

Hi Tony:

Okay we have a bazillion of them, but I suspect you're looking for Modern Vespa members' pics, yes? BUT - so as not to disappoint....this sent by our customer Remi in Switzerland.

Happy to have you in the CoolAss / NO PETS family. Yes - the new material is terrific, but I say - if your NO PETS is still working well and in good shape - why change? Unless you need a back-up, of course.

Be safe and stay COOL!

Best,

I'll be using mine I have for the MP3 for this years scootercannonball, just won't be using it during the day time. night time use only to help keep the seat dry from possible dew forming over nite or worse yet the probable rain will most likely encounter.

Brian have you ever thought about making a whole bike/scooter cover for your product line?

or even a 3/4 top half cover?

Indeed we have thought about full, half and 3/4 covers. Initially we decided against them because earlier material versions could not be sewn with the necessary seems to make a properly fitting cover. Our newest material will, in fact, allow for seem sewing, but is a little heavier making size a problem for storage. Even a tightly rolled full or 3/4 scooter cover ends up being about the size of a large watermelon! The second deterrent is / are hot exhaust pipes. They can and will melt the material making "cool down" necessary before applying the cover. Half-bike covers would work, but can be difficult to secure without bungees or tie downs. So - bottom line - we're still looking for a solution that is easy enough to deploy and small enough to store easily, yet still be heat and waterproof.

Thanks for your post!

Be safe on that beautiful MP3!

Ciao, my friend! GREAT picture. And what a perfect scooter for riding the cannonball run.

You live in one of the most beautiful countries on Earth. I love Italy and have been many times - initially in Ivrea several times when working for Olivetti. Later years had us visiting for holiday and traveling from Milan to Sorento and many points in between. I love the Italian people (so wonderfully friendly and compelling) and the food and fabulous wine - among the best in the world. I must admit, however, that my favorite place to visit - being a HUGE wine lover - is Montalcino! So beautiful and so many fine wines!!

Best to you! Hope to be back to Italy soon. The Tenuta Winery people call often and want us back!
