Kolpin Windshield

Hi, I would like opinions on the Kolpin Arctic Cat 2010 Prowler XTX Full-Tilting Windshield. Is it of good quality, durable, etc. Considering purchase, but drawn to moose folding models. I don't have any knowledge about which may be better or any of the cons. Please help, Thanks!

Welcome to the family. No or half windshields here in the south west. Give it some time I am sure you will get the feedback your looking for.

Welcome. I don't run a windshield, but it seems most of the complaints are that dust gets sucked back in the cab with using a full size windshield and the lexan ones scratch up too easy.

Thanks to Desertcat and Mustanggeek. In Kentucky I was wanting to use windshield to knockdown spider webs in the woods and to help out my lady from the night draft. Myself, just like riding my Harley's - no helmet.

Like Mustanggeek said most full windshiels don't allow for any air flow and it will allow the dust to collect inside your cab. It's like riding on the tail gate of a pick up down a dirt road.

Cool windshield

hi t-bird, i live in wva,and most of us run windshields,you do not want a full windshield because of the dust,like desertcat said a full windshield will cause a back draft,and you will get a lot of dust in the back of cab.i run a coolflo windshield from trail armor.com the bottom 6 inches comes off and that helps a lot on the back draft,you can take it on and off in a couple seconds.now you can get a fold down windshield for the cat,you couldnt when i bought my cat,thats what most of my riding buddys have,and the night air here gets cool,so you almost need one,or dont ride. in the cold weather we run covers on back of roll bar,keeps a lot of air out. note if you get windshield use rain-x inside and out helps a lot,and clean your windshield with a micro fiber rag after you hose it off.

2015 A/C Sport,With a few add ons..........
