Stock Seats in Rain?

I know the carpets can be removed to allow access to the drain plugs but...

How durable are the stock seats? Are they waterproof at all? Will it cause mildew if they're rained on?

I'm wondering because it rains randomly for a few minutes here in Hawaii and I'm debating if I should buy seat covers or not for my Jeep before I take the top off.

My seats have been rained on before and are fine. They dried faster than the carpet. Only happened a few times though. Frankly, getting in after the gym has been more of an issue with the seats. I wish it would rain here just to clean them!

I've been caught miles away from my house in a downpour with the top off. Seats are fine. I just let them air dry the rest of the day in the garage. To be honest, I was more worried about the carpet and electronics

Get this stuff called 303 fabric guard. I get it from West Marine here in Virginia. Stuff is amazing. Got poured on the other night, wipe it off, seat is dry.

There are a bunch of threads here about this stuff. Check it out.
