Better sidewalls than Gators and Fusion2s
The road shoulders on my rides are debris fields. I flatted Conti Gators and Hutch Fusion2 Kevs through SIDEWALL punctures, esp. the Gators. The Hardskins don't suffer from sidewall punctures (knock on wood .... actually, Kevlar). The 15 additional grams is well spent, and the price here is almost always the best on the Net.
