i use the Storm Covers which work well but the bungee seems a little weak.
from what i've seen the aquata covers seem to fit really tight and are sometimes a pain. i say go for either one.
i've also heard that the APS and collie covers are very good.

I like Sunbrella (Acrillic) for storage, especially top covers when the hull is sitting on the dolly - it's very water proof, yet breathes much better and dries faster then Top Gun, Duck all the other materials I've seen. Sunbrella is not my favorite for travelling unless it's built with a lot of extra tie down points, as it stretches a lot at highway speeds. I've got one of 48111's Sunbrella top covers ( http://laserforum.org/showthread.php?t=1728 ) , on it's 4th year now and it is holding up really well and the price was right.
For travelling, look for one with good tie downs (you need to use them!) and reinforcing at the corners. All the ones listed here are well made and do a good job.
Colie covers are also great because they have great straps and they stencil your name onto the cover in big block letters so its easy to find your boat in the middle of a parking lot full of covered lasers.
I really love my deck cover from Bartlett Sails. I accidentally abandoned my previous cover he built me in the 1980s at the Nationals In Minnesota so my most recnt one was new the week after that. ( 2000 or 2001 ?? I forgot)
Anyway, the cover is still flawless, slightly faded from that brutal Texas summer sun but the material is still doing its job.
Bartlett puts a good strong shock cord around a loose fitting cover. I lie my spars o the deck, grab the bow end of the cover, hook it in place, walk to the back of the boat, hook one corner and flip the same side around the hull, walk around the back, hook the other corner, flip the side around the hull and walk away. The cover has never blown off or filled with water.
