Black shade cloth 90% vs aluminet shade cloth 70

Which would be the better choice to buy for shade protection for the dogs in the hot months. Somehow I missed the sale listed a few posts below this post. So I found this. http://www.catalogclearance.com/90-Shade-Cloth-12x18
Would this be as good as the cool puppy aluminet.

I have the one similar to what cleanrun sells....Mine was about $70 bucks and it covers most of one side of my van. I have a silver van on purpose too.

This is a very good price IMO, http://www.catalogclearance.com/Alum...-x-8-2512.html

I would never use black. That will draw the heat in. You need a reflective material.

I have a $12 emergency blanket that I put over the front of the car and a smaller metal mesh cover to put over the back. I like to leave the back windows uncovered to allow more air flow. I think the mesh is to restrictive. The blanket and the mesh combined keep the car cool.

I did see the 80% and how cheap it was. But the wording seemed to be different than the other items on the page. I thought maybe it wasnt quite the same stuff as the 70% which is a bit higher. If it's the same stuff just a little darker this is what I will order.

Black shade cloth like that is the same material used to cover greenhouses/hoophouses, and it noticeably heats up to the touch.

It does shade what's underneath, but I'd definitely stick to the reflective materials.
