From what I have seen, the Samurai soft tops on the market suck pretty hard. I am currently running a Rampage top with the zip out windows. It has been installed for probably 5 years, problems with the zippers and snaps started up at the end of year 1. There is now a tear where the top fastens to the bow large enough to insert my head, so I am shopping.

Rampage with zip out windows again, $270

Rampage denim with no zip out windows $319

Is there any difference between these things or am I shopping the same way you shop for appliances: pick your favorite color and cross your fingers.
 
My Besttop has been pretty resilient against tree branches and cold weather. I have no experience with the other brands though.
 
I've had pretty good luck with my pavement ends top, have had it for 2 years now. I cracked one of the back windows though, my fault. I left it folded up in the back on top of the fuel cell and it hardened and yellowed the window plastic. The denim material the top is made of holds dirt but it's extremely durable. They are made by bestop.
