This summer with me using my truck as a work truck quite often, I'm finding that my fiberglass bed cover gets in the way. It's been a great cover, looks awesome, but now that I'm hauling some equipment in the bed, it's just more cumbersome now than it ever used to be.
The two benefits I see of the Peragon are that it's super lightweight, and can be completely removed from the bed in a few seconds. Also, it's on sale (until the end of the day today), so it's cheaper than the Retrax.
The Retrax also looks nice because it's Lexan, so it won't become damaged like aluminum. Also it seems that snow and ice really doesn't affect it, where an aluminum cover might get a little stiff at times.
Anyway, just looking for suggestions/opinions/experiences from everyone.

I have a tri-fold. Very light (can carry in one hand). Main reasons I got it...no instillation/drilling, just clips on (it's on SOLID!)...can completely take off for best flexability of loading bed...no plans for putting in stacks.

I have problems with leaves getting in roll box and stopping up drain hoses. My cover is aluminum and is secure with a tailgate lock. You lose a little of the bed as the roll box hangs down about 12" or so. It is stong enough to stand on, advertised to support 400lbs. RollBak Hard Aluminum Retracting Tonneau Truck Bed Covers By Bak
