Has anyone seek any information, or have any opinions, on how watertight the sky one-touch top will be? (Can't help thinking about every one of my three JK's hard tops leaking in the front/middle). Looking at the reveal photos and videos, I don't see how there is a good connection between the fabric and hard top frame, unless there is a magnetic seal?

I also wonder how it will hold up in he colder climates. Will too much snow hurt it? Will it be too cold in the winter and noisy?

My 2018 developed a slight drip on the front corners after a year.
It was still under warranty, but didn't bother me enough to have it addressed.
I was afraid they may make things worse.
It only leaked if the vehicle was left out in the rain for hours.
No leaks going though the car wash.
The top is thick and rigid. My friend has a hardtop I didn't notice any significant difference in noise levels.
I live in New England, its plenty warm in the winter no concerns there.
I just purchased a 2022 with the one touch once again, the drip is no deterrent for me.
I have asked others with one touches If they had leaks, none have.
I know 2018 was the first year this was offered, maybe Jeep made a fix.
For me the top is a must have ,nothing better than doors off and top open.
If it starts to rain, simply push the button.

Almost 3 years in with my Sahara with the one-touch power top. So far no problems with it. It's not too noisy, not really more than a hard-top or soft-top. Wranglers are noisy in general due to the boxy design. I live in Chicago so it gets pretty cold, but no issues with the top in the winter. In the rain and carwash's I have no leakage. For me, the power-top is such a convenience.
