You'll appreciate the "hard" stuff if you whack your head good. The soft stuff will compress so easy that you'll swear you hit metal. OUCH!

Ok so I'm a cheap ass. I got blow out on pool noodles and they had a nice 1"3/4 hole so i just cut it and got some covers made from a local fabric store. Less than $40. It works for me.

I got sick of my padding fading in the sun and just getting trashed so I did my rollbar in roll in truck bed liner, durabak. It came out great but now I won't only bump my head but scratch it like 20 grit sandpaper as well! :D

Plumbing water pipe insulation from you local plumbing supply house. then wrap it with pipe wrap tape from the same supply house. Will last a long time as the tape is made to be exposed.
