Features:

  • It’s a custom-fit tonneau cover, so it fits very well with the truck bed.
  • Reduces wind drag for the aerodynamic design.
  • Foldable up to four different positions, and drivable in all positions.
  • Mounts inside the truck bed rails and keeps the bed’s height low.
  • Includes rubber seal which helps to prevent water and dust.
  • Integrated metal rods to hold the cover-up against the truck when the cover is fully flipped up.
  • Integrated latch easily locks the cover in all positions.
  • Provides high security as the cover locks with the tailgate.
  • Integrated drain tubes on both sides help draining water.

Build

This tonneau cover is built very well. The panels are made of half-inch thick aluminum panels which makes them sturdy and durable. For more durability, the panels also have a reinforced center. The rails of BAKFlip G2 are made of aircraft-grade aluminum and it is also rustproof. This cover is rust, corrosion, and UV resistant with no compromises with the look as it is painted with a black powder coat finish.

Fit

BAKFlip G2 has a low-profile design. As it fits inside the rails of the truck, it doesn’t block access to your stake pockets on the rails. It also sits flush with the tailgate. This design choice keeps the truck bed height lower than other tonneau covers. The third brake light is visible even if the cover is in flipped-up position.

Installation

The install process is very easy and doesn’t require any drill or professional tools. All the required hardware is included. The installation process will take no more than 15 minutes even if you are a beginner, just take a wrench and a Philips head screwdriver and start the installation. Just follow the instruction in the manual or read our article about how to install a tonneau cover.

Security

Almost all the hard fold tonneau cover is pretty secure as the covers are and made with hard materials. As the panels are made of half-inch thick aluminum with aircraft-grade aluminum rails, it can be said BAk made no compromises on the security part. The cover also locks with the tailgate when fully closed, so you don’t need to worry about your cargo while driving or even parked in a gas station. We found that even in different folded positions the integrated latch system holds the cover firmly enough to drive with.

Access

BAKFlip G2 is a tri-fold tonneau cover. You can use it in four different positions, folded once or twice, fully open while it rests against the cab and, fully closed. Folded positions are helpful for tall cargos while the fully open position gives 100% bed access as well.

Pros:

  • Durable and solid design with good look
  • No-drill installation
  • 100% bed access
  • Integrated latch system and drain tube
  • Better/High security
  • Doesn’t cover 3rd brake light
  • Weather-resistant

Cons:

  • The cover cannot be folded when the tailgate is locked.

Features worth mentioning

We mentioned the low-profile design and the weatherproof solid panels already. This well-built cover can also hold 300lbs/135Kg evenly distributed weight. There are two integrated metal rods to hold the cover firmly against your cab while fully open. With the attached bumpers on the opposite side, it will not scratch your cab’s back glass or metal. There are also two integrated drain tubes on each side to help drain the rainwater out. BAKFlip G2 also comes with a rubber seal that goes around the rails and also the tailgate. This rubber seal is pretty good at holding moisture and dust outside. BAK also includes weather stripping to attach it to the front of your truck bed to fully seal it with the tonneau cover.

Downside/Disadvantage

The only disadvantage about this cover is, neither the truck bed is accessible nor the cover can be folded while the tailgate is locked in the fully closed position.

Verdict

After the review, it can be said that the BAKFlip G2 is a well-built, well-designed, durable, and good-looking tonneau cover. BAK industries also included a lot of well thought and useful features. The only downside of this cover is also a feature when you think about cargo security. After reviewing the product, we are confident to suggest our readers buy this product. If your demands are met this is the perfect tonneau cover at this price point.
