I just received this from Amazon (not a third-party reseller) last week, and am happy to report that Weber has listened to their customers and stopped with the vents.

This cover is form-fit for my Weber Genesis S-320, and other Genesis 300 series grills. It looks great, and the velcro straps (which are now placed where the vents are pictured) keeps it from blowing off my grill. The material is quite dense, and the quality of the stitching is very good.

Having seen some of the cheaper covers that aren't much more than tarp stitched in the shape of a grill, I was happy to spend a few bucks more. It isn't cheap, but you get something high quality that makes your grill look nice even when it isn't being used.

I used to own the Weber 7552 Cover, which I had on my old Genesis Silver B, and after three years, the thing still looked nice when I sold it, without so much as a loose stitch (though it did have the wonky vent over the handle). This cover feels like it's even higher quality. Totally worth it, as far as I'm concerned.

Update: I've added three pictures of the grill cover I received. Take a look!

Do NOT buy this grill cover...

If you own a Genesis series grill, I strongly advise you NOT to buy this grill. Indeed, the quality of the material is great; the size is perfect. However, there are TWO SIDE VENTS that are crafted in the cover, just above the two side shelves.

These "side vents" are mesh screens that will allow any and all rainwater to flow DIRECTLY onto my/your very nice, very expensive Weber grill. I thoroughly researched this cover before I purchased it, and I had read a few reports of the side vents. But I had also read reports of a "rear vent" that worked well.

I'm not sure how one can differentiate between the two different models (and whether or not the respective model has side or rear vents). However, I do know that, if you have a Genesis-series grill, DO NOT ORDER THIS ONE... The two side vents are located ABOVE the side shelves. I will be returning this item as soon as I take the time to fold it back into the box.

If anyone has any ideas where I can purchase the correct cover, please comment.

I read the reviews about the vents issue, so I went to Lowe's today and purchased a new cover (same model #7553) which comes WITHOUT vents (item #180176, priced at $49.99). The cover looks exactly the same, but again, comes without vents so that you don't have to worry about rain getting inside. I took the cover out of the box, just to confirm.

The grill cover at first is really nice. It fits the Genesis series perfectly and the straps allow you to tightly cover you grill. However, the seemingly durable grill cover is really not that durable. After about 1 year, there was some minor fading and cracking of the cover (the grill stayed outdoors only during the spring and summer months with about 5-6 hours per day of direct sun exposure during the peak summer months). After the 2nd summer of use, the cover was brittle and basically unusable.

Now those of you reading all the positive reviews here on Amazon need to be wary. Most people are reviewing this item immediately after purchasing it. If I had left a review on day 1, it would be a 5 star review since the grill is nicely put together and is a perfect fit for the grill. But for about $50, you'd think a Weber branded item would last a bit longer than 1 - 2 years. I'm about to purchase a new cover and it won't be this one again. If that one doesn't last longer, I may come back to this...but atleast I know the grill will still be standing strong. Weber grills are awesome...I just wish I could say the same thing about the covers.

Get the "Classic® Veranda Cart BBQ Cover" instead. The "large" size fits the Genesis fine and the vents on the Veranda cover are protected by flaps. And, the price on the Veranda is better. (I don't work for them, but I did buy their cover.)

I don't understand the ventilation design on the Weber Genesis cover, Model 7553. The 2 side vents do little, if anything, to protect rain from entering the grill and water collects on the side tables, draining into the cabinet below the grill. I believe that defeats the purpose of having a grill cover! Granted, vents are needed to prevent condensation issues. A more strategic placement of the grill cover vents would be far better.

When I purchased my new Weber Genesis S320 grill (from Home Depot) I also purchased the grill cover, Model #7553. When I open the box I immediately noticed the material's high quality and it was a perfect fit on the grill. However, a few days later it rained quite hard. The following day when I pulled off the cover both side tables had large water puddles on them.

I went on Amazon which had the cover listed through a third party. I was pleased to see on the box picture that it didn't have side vents (The dark slot-looking items are Velcro straps). So I purchased the cover and received it in a timely fashion from the vendor. However, as I pulled the cover out of the box (which had the same photo - no side vents shown) my excitement turned to dismay. It had side vents and no rear vent. This cover is useless with the side vents so I returned it. The fault is misleading product presentation from the manufacturer (Weber) and not the fault of the Amazon vendor. I hope to find (and purchase) a generic cover which is properly engineered.
