You can do better, and spend less too! Nov 27, 2006
As a relatively new cloth convertible top owner I wanted to pro-actively to take good care of my top from the start. All roads lead to RaggTopp Fabric Protectant, which essentially meant that it has the recommendation of the Hartz Fabric Company recommendation. I have used this product before and it worked, but this year it was a disaster. First of all they changed the spray nozzle on the aerosol can to produce an extremely fine spray. Whatever their reason for this was it now means that it is impossible to use this product outdoors as the slightest of breezes sends it off into the wind. You must apply it in a garage setting only. Secondly when my small top failed to bead water after apply three coats per the directions I contacted the manufacture to try to understand what went wrong. They were far from professional, in fact I would characterize their behavior as nothing less than insane. First telling me that I did not apply enough. Then telling me that I applied too much. And a few other really bizarre comments were sent to me written in all capital letters! It appears that this company is really just a one man and a bitter and unhappy fellow at that! But the good news is that this interesting information that I would like to share with you. This is not the only option for fabric top protectant. And of the alternatives there is one that had been the defacto Hartz recommended product for over 20 years (RaggTopp was only recommended by them for the last few years - do I smell a bribe, or should I say paid product endorsement?). The alternative is a product called 303 Protectant - High Tech Fabric Guard. It is available from Amazon and it is less expensive than Raggtopp. 303 also makes a fabric cleaner. And 303 has a manual pump spray which allows for much greater control in applying the product. My top beads water again thanks to 303. Goodbye RaggTopp, your horrible customer server has turned me and now everyone in my roadster auto club off of your products for good.

RaggTopp Review Jun 23, 2009
In short, RaggTopp convertible top care doesn't measure up to my expectations. I read about the history of the product and product reviews before my purchase, which influenced my purchase. Sorry to say this stuff just didn't provide noticeable results in cleaning the fabric top of my Porsche Boxster. I can only guess that the "protectant" product is working. The application of the protectant can be arduous because it is in an aerosal can. Any breeze or air movement will cause the product to fall on the glass and paint surfaces of your car. All in all, I probably won't purchase this particular product again.

It does work but... Sep 19, 2008
By Jose J. Gonzalez
the cleaner works fine, leaving the top really clean.
protectant do not leave a shine coat like other protectants does. I followed instructions in strict order and leaved a nice coat of protectant without necessarily leaving a mess. I wait a while to check it's "magic" effect but two weeks later still waiting for some david cooperfield stuff. another thing, the protectant is a spray, so is very inefficient in saving it's content for a next use; almost used a can for a single application. if you buy it, please consider eye protecting googles. for it's price it's expensive and inefficient.

2000 yellow convertible Jul 26, 2010
By Tim Monson
I followed the directions, wash worked very well as did the Ragg Topp spray. Only problem was that I wished I had covered the glass with paper or cloth.
The water protection spray is a bear to remove from the glass.

The spray method is messy. Jun 29, 2010
By A. Walker
The product seems to work well. The cleaner worked well, but the sealant comes in a spray can. You have to cover windows and painted areas adjacent to the convertible top. Three light coatings as recommended used the entire can. It does seem to provide a good protective coating however.
