I am looking to purchase a windshield for my commander and am wondering if Kolpin split windshield is the way to go.
I have read some reviews about it and it seems the only drawback is the directions to install. I like that you can take the top of it off when it is hot out.
Any thoughts.

Kolpin has been the favorite windshield supplier for Commander owners...alot of guys are running it and haven't heard much negative about them at all.

I do not see a gasket along the bottom of the kolpin and also it seems to stop short at the top. There is a review on amazon about wind getting through top and bottom. what is everyone doing about this. Is there a better choice out there.?

I live in Alaska and I love the wind shield. During warm day, which sometimes are far and few, I take off the removable part for air flow and on colder days it keeps the cab toasty and dry. Only draw back is when closed it creates a kind of vacuum and you get lot of dust in cab, but I think this is common on all full windshields, that's why I really like that you can open it up partially and get some air flow. I highly recommend the kolpin windshield. The gap at top and bottom has not been a problem for me.

I dont know how big the gap is on that particular windshield, but we have a full window on our gator (made the top and cut the window ourselves) and on our arctic cat. We put weather stripping along the bottom on the gator. Kind of like the type you put around an ac unit in the house. Works great. It has been on for two years. We drive it every day all winter all weather. I plan on putting it on the arctic cat as well. It has a factory full window. Also if your window happens to vibrate the super thin stripping along the frame works well to stop it. Just thought I would toss it out there. Oh also a rear window or screen helps with the back-flow of dust.
