Default Car Cover question

While we are house shopping I am having to use the garage as a storage and staging area. I rented a storage facility and we are moving things there but the garage always has something in it so I can't keep my car inside.
I don't want to spend a fortune but do want something that will protect my nice shiny, black paint from the elements. I have one I bought years ago I use on my Infiniti when I know it will sit for a couple of weeks but don't remember the brand and the tag is faded. It is a multi-layer type and does a pretty good job but still seems to let a lot of dirt through. I figure some of you have experience with various cover manufacturers and could recommend a good, quality cover.
Ideas?

I have a couple of California Car Covers, but they're for inside use....very soft interiors, even after repeated washing, and the grommets are covered in such a way that it's darn near impossible to scratch the car with them. They make outdoor covers, too. The fit is very good.

I had some Coverking seat covers once. Good quality, but never tried their car covers.

California cover!

What ever you do get one that fits well, parked outside with winds you can get abrasions with cheaper stuff. Of course the thicker the better in case it gets bumped or thumped! (Kids, dogs or whatever)
