in the vast majority of cases it is not needed (I've never worn one out in that manner.) But they do make money selling covers.
I'd be willing to bet 98% of coil trouble is the cable, the majority being the connector and the rest being where it enters the loop.
And hip mounts have the most stress.

I was thinking along the lines of leaving the cover off, I have never had any problems with this type of coil. Back in the day some detectors had what I call a box coil and you could knock holes in them or crack the case and water and dirt would get inside the coil.

I trashed my cover - living in Florida I'm always on the beach - tons of sand even in the soil - haven't broke/cracked/worn out a coil yet and used it hard for over 5 years.
