Lots or people like using a bra during love bug season, some also like to use them on long highway cruises to prevent rock chips/sand blasting.
 
The best brand will depend on a persons personal preference.

I had my '88 resprayed and then used a leather bra to help minimize dings on the front end.  The bra I used actually caused the paint on the hood to show signs of erosion due to the flutter of the bra at higher speeds.  On my '11, I elected to have the front end encased on a clear plastic covering that is not supposed to discolor and have been pretty happy with the results as no rock chips have been noted since this "bra" was installed by a body shop.  I should have had this done on the '88 as the bra had limitations due to staying in place during highway drives.

I used a Colgan bra on the front of my '96 LT-4, it's about 5 years old and still in great shape.
