Marathon Seat Covers are the best I have found. I know guys that have the wet okole and after a few years they end up shredded.

I have the Carhartt covers. Heavy canvas material and washable (if you don't mind removing them).

We bought clazzio brand covers for a couple work trucks. They fit so well, you can hardly tell they aren't factory. They've held up great. Not cheap.

I put CoverKing real leather covers in my gmc.
They were not cheap, and a pain to install, but you almost can't tell it's not factory.

we had wet okole in our suburban and they looked like new when we sold it.

had them in one of my land cruisers for several years with no issue.

had a friend at tahoe that had them on his back hoe...

if you try hard enough you can destroy about anything...

Re: Good Seat Cover?


I got Caltrend seat covers via carid.com for my promaster. They're a really snug fit -- not baggy at all. I've had them just under a year and they're surviving fine. If I remember right, they weren't cheap-cheap, but definitely weren't in wet okole territory.

Re: Good Seat Cover?


I think I put the cover king neoprene ones in my truck. They have held up pretty well, but my drivers side seat edge is ripped from the repeated in and out. I will say that they are a major pain in the ass to get on. So much so, that I delay removing them to wash them in the washer. I have full crew cab and have total seat covers everywhere. I swear it takes over and hour to put them all on. I would go with something that goes on and off pretty easily. You will be more likely to wash them if that is the case.

I have a 2019 Chevy 3500 with leather seats. I put neoprene by CoverKing on all of them, purchased via Costco. I paid for the Costco membership specifically to buy the covers at their pricing...and saved $.

Only problem with neoprene, is that I do have a spot showing some wear being I have rough pants. But, its only on the driver's seat, so I could replace that individual cover if need be.

I have those same neoprene covers. I'm on my second pair in 9 years. That's a bargain. Also got them from Costco.

Re: Good Seat Cover?


Curious why folks pay extra for leather seats then put a cover on them.

I did to avoid dust and dirt accumulation in fabric.

I use those weather guard floor mat trays too, does suck to cover the nice interior but at the same time my interior looks like new when I strip it all out for an occasional road trip
