Default tonneau covers?

Considering a tonneau cover for my 2011 Short box D-max. Main reason is that when we take it on trips and have to haul 'stuff' for the kids it is a pain when the weather is bad.

I know there are a ton of options - I know that I do not want a solid one piece cover. (been there done that ~10 years ago)

Looking at soft rolls and the hard folding ones. For the hard folding ones I am looking at the BAKFlip Fibermax and the Undercover Flex.

Any other things I should look at or consider?

I want to be able to use the full bed to haul an ATV if necessary, so I am not looking at the retractable ones.

For a hard folding top and atv capable, I'd seriously consider the following.

I have the traditional access with locks on both sides. I didn't like the look of the low pro. I have a buddy that has a folding Truxedo that is pretty slick. It can be folded from the front or back.

Soft tonneau all the way. I've had a Truxedo Lo-Pro for a long time now (on its second truck) and I have never regretted it. The ability to roll it completely out of the way s the best feature of it.

I know old thread (apology) but needs some idea for a bed cover that lasts and keeps the bed dry even on heavy rain. Been looking at truck tonneau covers available, lots of good options but can't decide which will work for years and can provide extra protection against crooks. I sometimes hauling tall stuffs so 1-pc is not an option. Anyone got retractables? If so, how's the mechanism over the years? TIA
