    Default Seat cover question

    I am looking for some comfortable(not rough like cordura) seat covers for my truck that have some longevity. are the neoprene comfortable or do they make you sweat? I don't need camo but that would be ok.
    any difference in price for the better companies?

    I got the heavy cordura nylon ones from Cabela's in grey and they are great. not hot and very tough. I have been on the wet suit ones and found them hot. Best I ever had were sheepskin but they did not protect from spills and leaks as well as the nylon ones. Best thing was the cost. Very affordable.

    My wife and I are also looking for some quality seat covers. I have the Marathon cordura seat covers on my two trucks, but we are looking for something different for my wifes vehicle. So far, everything we find is camo (neoprene), or looks cheesy. Any suggestions for non-camo custom fit seat covers?

    I got some saddle blanket custom seat covers, they are comfortable and definitely cooler . the only knock on them is that the seat portion slides over my leather seats. I have ridden on Okole seat covers(neoprene) and they are great if you have wet swim trunks on but they are hotter than a pistol in summer and they werent cheap, but the fit was awesome.

    Both of these companies make them with different types of materials, which ones specifically are you recommending?

    I went with the neoprene covers from Wetokole. They do not make one sweat. Very nice and minimum fade after four years.

    I've got the Hatchie Bottom custom fit neoprene in a F-250. Fit like a glove and no where near as hot as the leather underneath them. Kind of pricey for the front/back but they are holding up great.

    Pondering the same question, whether to go with the Hatchie Bottom or the Wet Okole. Was curious as to how the neoprene held up with the sun shining through the windshield on them and how hot they were when you were driving a long distance.
