Wet Okole or Trek Armor

Looking for some opinions on front seat covers for my 2013 white Sahara.

I live in North Forida and want something to protect the leather seats from sweat (after CrossFit a few times a week), saltwater (getting in after kitesurfing) and pop up t-storms when the top's off. Also, black leather seats + Florida summer sun with the top down = really freakin' hot!

I've narrowed it down to wet okole or trek armor.

If I go with the wet okoles I'm thinking black w/ solar yellow. Trek Armors probably the black w/coyote.

Thanks for your input

I'm in the same boat, down in Vilano Beach. My wife wanted a yellow jeep, which they don't make any more, so I was looking at yellow neoprene seat covers. The other thread referenced seems to be trending to the Trek Armor. I'm torn between "yellowing" up the Jeep for her (WO), and buying the (seemingly) better performing product (TA).

No, unfortunately the 5 yr old is sick, and my wife is not really up for long outings yet. She is still shaking off the effects of chemo and radiation. Plus it's my 10 yr anniversary tonight, so probably just a beach day for us tomorrow at porpoise point.

I'm in Gulf Shores , Al so similar climate. Got the TA's for my wife over the WO's because if the swampbutt problems with the neoprene on the WO's.
I will definitely be getting a set for my JKU as well. Super quality very well worth the price.

Is the neoprene really any different between the two as far as swamp butt ? It would seem neoprene on either one would have the same characteristics or am I missing something ?

I'm new to the site, but I do live in HI where the Wet Okoles are made right down the street. Everyone out here loves them. I hear no complaints of swamp butt.

I'm pretty sure the trek armors are not neoprene

I really want the Trek Armor covers, unfortunately they are not compatible with Side-Air Bags in my 2013 JKUR. I may have to get Wet Okole just because of the Side-Air bags in the front seats.

There are no issues here with that either, an all black Jeep with all black WO covers, and I'm not a small person so if anyone would have the issue it would be me.

I'm not sure what people are talking about in regard to this. I think it's just the thing to say by people who haven't tried them....

WO's here -- love 'em and no issues with swamp butt. However, two issues I wish were beeter - installation instructions are non-existent, and they are not completely self-explanatory, particularly with the seat belts in the rear. Also, I think they should have had an elastic strip around the bottom, so the covers fit snugly around the bottom of the seat, instead of just sort of hanging there. The straps are good, but still don't provide a clean looking fit at the bottom of the seat, IMO.

The elastic would help, it wouldn't take much....

Trek Armor here.


I had the Wet Okoles in my old F-150 and liked them. To me the Trek Armor are better though. They fit better and seem to made of a stronger material. Haven't noticed any swapbutt issues here, and south LA gets freaking hot and humid.
