I would gladly buy a dedicated hood cover made of softer material, but I don't see anyone selling anything like that. All my attempts to search for such a product on the net let either to those black frontal anti-chip bras or to transparent permanent protective films.

BTW, does anyone have any experience with transparent protective films and cats? I once read a horror story on the net claiming that non-groomed cats easily ruin such protective films with their claws as they attempt to climb onto the hood.
I'm sure with a clear bra, the result you'd get from a cat clawing on it would look like someone's bumper screws ripping the clear bra. I guess it'll protect wherever you clear bra but then you'd have to replace the clear bra cause that rip would be an eye sore.
