Seat covers making my back sweat. Any solutions?

Firstly, I love my trek armor covers. They protect my seats and they look great.

Sadly, they're making my back sweat so badly I have to carry a fresh shirt with me for even short trips. Trek's site says this shouldn't happen but oh well.

Any ideas what I could do to lessen the sweating? Was thinking of an additional towel seat cover for when its really hot? I'm open to suggestions.

Also, this is only happening when top is down or windows are out.

I'm thinking of getting these seats

Prob bc they are water proof so it doesn't absorb sweat like factory seats

Most likely its the humidity and the neoprene material that is causing this... Unfortunately I do not know of a fix. The material can not breath well when your back is pressed up against it. One of the biggest drawbacks to neoprene seat covers. If Trek says its not supposed to happen tell em to send you a new set.

I have Wet Okoly same issue. I got a set of seat beads (?) They're supposed to massage you while you sit LOL. Walmart $20 But they push you off the neoprene just enough to get airflow. Winter... I just put them in storage.

The treks are not neoprene, there are zoom in pics on google to see the material but other owners say it feels like gym bag material.

I sweat easily so if these seats don't breath i might have to skip paying 300 bucks and get some beach towels on my seats lol

Funny! I was thinking of the exact same solution. Am glad someone else had the same idea.

Look up Iggee seat covers on E-bay. No sweating or swamp ass, the only con is that when they have been sitting in the sun they feel like the surface of the Sun for ONE FULL SECOND then cool off instantly. Its really weird.

I think the Trek Armor seat covers fit great, look great and installed easily. I installed seat heaters as well.

I sweat more when driving the BMW with leather seats. The stock ugly seat covers were probably the best material, just but ugly though, at least in a 2004 sport.

I find the black seats in my 2013 JK really make my back sweat in the warm weather. I picked up seat/back thingy from Walmart for about $20. It has a black & white open weave cover on a thin coil spring inner. Really lets the air circulate between your back and the seat. Cheap and it works.
