Sunshade recomendations

Looking for a good sunshade that fits our windshields well, with the correct rear view mirror
cutout and held up by the visors. Thanks for any recommends and links of products tried and true.

I enjoy the ones from weather tech. Works well and custom made for each vehicle.

I'll go against the grain and say I don't like the weathertech ones for the windshield, so far. The other ones for the other windows look fine.. I got the full kit. The one for the windshield is a little too big, I was worried about the covercraft being too small..but in the end I wanted the full set as my truck sits outside so went weathertech.

Eventually I'll figure out a decent way to put it in the window and roll it up when done.. Until then no passengers! Passenger seat is for my sunshade. lol

the covercraft fit is snug. i can get it to fit against the headliner without needing to flip the visors to hold it if i have my visors holding up papers, maps, etc.
plus, the accordian folding is clean and it tucks between the B pillar and the driver's seat.


in this photo, i do have the visors flipped down:

Is there a gap by the side window down near the dash or does it just look that way in the photo?

Bought the cheap oval ones (theirs 2) that have the GM bowtie on one side all silver on the other side that are spring loaded and fold up in a small circle (takes up hardly room) at Walmart for my 2019 Colorado. They work good enough for me. You push top up to rear view mirror and pull the sunvisors down to hold them. Only a very little light at lower side just like the high dollar ones. And don't take up all that space being in the way can just shove them down between the seat and console when not using.

@PieceKeepr i don't have it fit fully against the windshield in this photo, so i can see what you're talking about, but no, there are no substantial gaps along any of the sides. it does a wonderful job of reflecting heat, especially since it's insulated foam core, and keeps UV off the dash when in place.

Those are the ones I was talking about from Walmart. Works for me and when folded up takes up very little space.

Has anyone used the cover craft sunshade on these trucks? Is that a perfect fit for the Colorados and is it with the $60?

I got one at Costco for $10 and comes with two side-window shades that I don't use. Fits perfect and does the job. I think the manufacturer is Winplus.

This is the best fitting Sunshade that I have seen yet. I just read some reviews and one was complaining about the Fit of the Covercraft on a Colorado. Buy the looks of your picture, it fits pretty good. Any complaints from you

@16WhiteColly no complaints, I love it.
I've had covercraft sun shields in every vehicle I've owned over the past 15 years, too.

i guess some people might gripe about the fact that its rigid panels and folds accordian-style rather than flimsy and easier to just mash in to the corners of the windshield. i dunno.
