leather seat covers

Recommended Posts

MLB    1

I hate the velcro like nature of the fabric on my seats relative to my dogs hair.  i want to add a seat heater and thinking I'll go all out and get a leather seatcovers for easier cleaning.  Anyone replaced with anything they'd recommend or know of a good supplier for reasonable prices?

I've used cordura seat covers in my last 2 vehicles and love the durability and easy cleanup. I work at a water plant and sometimes after working extra shifts fixing a leak I just hose off the majority of the mud and head home still wet and dirty. Just a damp rag does the job cleaning up whatever ends up on the seat covers. If I remember correctly, here's the two places I got them from:

It's a good idea to add seat covers. Like DonS, I added them because of water/sand from a wetsuit at the beach, but I'm always snacking when I'm driving and it's amazing how much food ends up on the seat. They are not 100% waterproof, more like water resistant, which is okay for my purposes.

 

I got my seat covers from Seat Covers Unlimited, link below.

I got the Neo-sport covers in black for the driver and passenger seats (cargo version).

I think I chose this outfit because I wanted to get a map pocket on the seat backs and not everyone offered that option. I really like having them on both sides.

The pair cost $257, which isn't cheap, but they appear to be well made, have a nice custom fit and have velcro tabs where the airbags are located.

Good luck!

There are 'seat covers' and then there is seat reupholstery which is what I think he's talking about  -  He doesn't want to cover over what he has . . . . I think he wants to take off the OEM upholstery, install seat heaters and then install new leather upholstery

 

I did this to my Miata many years ago  -  Quite a project!  I bought a set of Katzkins for about $500 which fit the seats perfectly and it looked better than factory stock when I got them on, but it was quite a job.  I think you get what you pay for when it comes to aftermarket leather upholstery and a set to do the front buckets in a TC might run you a good bit more than the $500 I paid 15 years ago

 

IMO, swapping the OEM upholstery which attracts dog hair for leather which I doubt would look good for very long when the dogs claws scratched them up *might* be an expensive mistake, but to each his own.  I've never had a dog in any of my vehicles, but if I owned one that I regularly took with me in the van I think I would be looking for something more practical than leather
