Classic Outdoor Furniture All-Weather Fire Pit Cover – Green

For those who want to protect their outdoor fire pit, a poly cover is most important.

I wanted to include a cover that is from the same vendor as the fire pits so that you can get one with your fire pit and protect it from rust or weather damage from day one.

This fire pit cover is made of a cloth-like polyester material that resists cracking and is made for all outdoor weather conditions. This material will resist fading, stains, or mildew with its UV protection. Protection from all types of weather conditions will be provided with this cover as long as you can keep it on in the wind.

The edges of this cove are sewn and the grommets are made of a rust resistant brass material for extra durability.

This cover will fit any fire pit that is less than 32 inches across and 18 inches tall.
