When closed, it's water tight unless you're going through a pressure car wash, and then it only leaks a little bit along the top of the tailgate. When closed, it's locked along the length of the truck bed on both sides and it's flush with the top of the tailgate. When the tailgate is locked it would take a crowbar and cause a lot of damage to get into the bed. The top of the cover is a black heavy duty vinyl material over aluminum slats. I installed the whole thing myself in about 30 minutes. And, I can remove the rolled up cover in about 10 minutes if I want it out of the way entirely.
I have the sane cover. I chose it because you can use a Trac Rack with it. On my silverado i can cover the hondas and all the bed gear reasonably securely and put the kayaks on the racks. The racks also slide forward so trips to use the truck like a truck work without having to change anything around.
The cover only opens and secures fully rolled up though, so for the OP's requirements its not ideal.
One of the covers that rolls into a box at the front of the bed with "steps". Makes the most sense.
I chise this one because it ws the only solution i found that enabled a lumber rack in place as well.
