Best product for clear Pergola roof? Lexan,Polycarbonate,FPR Panels?

Hi all!,

Im about to start building a patio for the upper part of this patio (see photo)
and want to put on some type of clear roof to keep the rain off of the patio furniture but still allow all of the light thru. Looking for a low cost solution that will not yellow.
It will also need to be able to hold up to Michigan winters unless it will be easy enough to remove that time of year??
Some options I've come across are Polycarbonate, Lexan, and FPR Panels(fiberglass reinforced panels)......Ive read that Polycarbonate gets way too hot underneath though, but would that really be an issue under an open air pergola? (I will be adding curtains to the sides for privacy.)
I'd really like to hear from anyone who is using these products.....post photos of your applications if possible.
Thanks
