WTB Hail Resistant Car Cover

I'm looking for a Hail Resistant Car Cover for my recently purchased 335i coupe. Does anyone know a place in Calgary or on the web where I could purchase one. Thanks

Not sure if there is a hail resistant cover. I'd just try to get the thickest one I could. Either that o find a way to suspend the cover just above the car (a roof rack would work) so its not effected by the impact.

Because the car cover will be touching the car's surface, any impact from hail would just be transferred to the body surface.

Maybe you should put bubble wrap or foam underneath the car cover?

bubble wrap is a pretty good idea except the cold weather might condense the air inside the bubbles. Some foam padding would work well though. Cushions from deck furniture would work.

Curiously timely post too after the hail we had in Calgary last night, and a number of other times recently as it happens. I mention this only as the OP is from Calgary.
