Thoughts on this material

Check out this link to Magnum polyurethane fabric and look at the specs.
http://www.diyupholsterysupply.com/Mag273/Mag6.html
Can anyone tell me how it rates as to colorfastness, wear, type of backing and etc to other quality polyurethanes? How do you think it will hold up in a truck that is garaged, driven only 4000 miles a year and spends 6 weekends a year in the hot sun?

I have a sample of it and the color is perfect, it feels and looks good, if I stretch the dickens out of it it returns to shape, and the price is right. The ultraleather sample I have keeps a pucker after I stretch it hard. I just do not know enough to go ahead and order without someone who knows more nudging me. This will be my first interior and I know I will waste a lot of material, so the price has drawn me.
