An all-terrain vehicle (ATV) usually features an open cab design that essentially exposes the rider to the elements. This is the best option for visibility, overhead clearance, and weight savings, but in some cases, having an ATV cab that is enclosed is preferable. This unit can be used on most ATVs to cover the rider and protect him or her from the elements. Sometimes an ATV cab will be included at purchase when buying certain types of ATVs; larger utility ATVs that feature side by side seating will often be enclosed or semi-enclosed.

The materials used to make an ATV cab can vary. Lightweight attachments may feature an aluminum or steel frame that supports a nylon, polypropylene, or even plastic covering. The covering will often feature plastic windows at the front and rear, as well as to the rider's left and right. This allows the rider to see all around the vehicle, though the ATV cab will limit visibility, since the rider will not be able to see above him or certain blind spots where the material is positioned around the cab frame. The cab will often feature a zippered door that makes entering or exiting the cab exceptionally easy.

An ATV cab may come in a simple solid color, though many hunters or sportsmen prefer camouflage designs that help reduce visibility of the unit. Camouflage units tend to be more expensive, but also more functional for people spending time in the woods. Plain black covers are most common and less expensive. The position and size of the windows can also affect the price of the ATV cab; some cabs feature overhead windows, and others may feature exceptionally large front, side, and rear windows. Larger windows will generally raise the cost of the unit.

Some ATV cab models are permanent features that are made from hard plastics or metals. These are part of the design of the vehicle, and they are usually included on utility ATVs with side-by-side seating. The vehicle itself can sometimes resemble an oversized golf cart, though these vehicles are designed for more rigorous use on and off road. The cab on these vehicles will generally be designed for stability, rigidity, and safety: some may even be designed with rollover safety in mind. The frame of the cab will be made from thick steel, thereby helping to prevent collapse of the cab in the event of a rollover.
