From turning heads to feeling the breeze, there’s a lot to love about soft top Defenders. Here’s why you should consider adding a soft top as one of your builds must-have features.
Imagine. You’re rolling down a lone backroad. The sun is shining, but the rogue clouds in the sky provide just enough cover. The breeze is light and adds just the right amount of coolness. You feel nostalgic whether you’ve been there or not. This is the powerful feeling of driving with a soft top. Summer, spring, or fall drives – the lure of the convertible is almost year-round, and a soft top Defender makes the PERFECT cruiser.
Regardless of your Defender’s wheel base, you can completely shift its look through the versatility of a soft-top’s color and material, giving you the option of an “outfit change” for your build. A vintage classic with a windowless, khaki canvas soft top. A sleek blacktopped build with PVC windows. You can choose from tops that add a classic touch with snap fasteners or ones that are easily removed via heavy-duty zippers. Most canvas tops can be bought in different colors as well and are easily supplied from brands like Exmoor Trim, Rovers North, and Badger so it’s fairly simple to swap out at any time and store away with no problem.
A Defender is a true lifestyle vehicle. Take your build out to international dunes, drive down State Route 1 through Malibu, and enjoy a simple ride out with your family. If you surf, camp, or love long road trips, having a soft-top Defender means having adjustable space for your everyday lifestyle.
Toss your surfboard or camping gear in the back and take the top down so passengers can fully experience the scenery. These builds don’t shy away from active living and they’re ready to go anywhere, the vehicles themselves represent an experience.
There is something genuinely freeing about riding in a defender with the top off, we don’t get too many riders who don’t smile through the experience.
