The BDR stuff works great w/VPI - I have not experimented with that exact kit but in general I've had really good luck with BDR under the TNT and Aries tables.

I purchased the Scout Cover while it was sold here on Audiogon. At that time only one model was available. Now two styles are offered by this same individual, but sold through MusicDirect. The craftmanship of these dust covers are very good! I prefer the newer (and unfortunately more expensive) model that is now offered. This newer model sits ON the turntable versus the first one that sits OVER the turntable. I'm sure its a matter of personal taste though.
Make sure to experiment with the placement and "directionality" of BDR cones, if you use them. I tried a few different cones/points under my amp which was already sitting on a Osiris Giza stand on its own points and pucks filled with about 40 lbs of silica sand. A couple of the tweaks I tried made things sound worse. I tried the BDR III's and they made some decent sonic improvement, but nothing drastic. Then, one day, for kicks, I turned the cones over so that the small end pointed up. The improved tightness in bass and clarity in the upper top end left me agog. A very nice surprise.....
