Neoprene Seat Covers

Does anyone have neoprene seat overs. I see that make them for both front and back seats. I want something that fits the seat well and allows for all the seat functions. I'm just not sure what neoprene is like to sit on. Not sure if it will cause a high degree of swamp a$$.

I went with these also but within 6 months the color was coming off and the stitching was coming apart so I returned as they have a year warranty and they sent me new and they did the same at around 6 months. So if your top is down alot I would not recommend these as they come apart. But if your top is up alot they fit great and full function of the seat. But after two 6 month periods they would not warranty anymore.

I had the same problem. I got my seat covers a couple years ago and the one on the driver's side came apart pretty quick from getting in and out of the jeep. The color on the rest faded really quick. I would not recommend getting more.

I got these from cover king. They fit well, not enough use on them to guage how long they last. Texas summer+ no top= sweaty back though.

We put a set of the Smittybilts (front and rear) in my buddy's TJ. They are black and after a year have started to fade a bit, but are still black. They are comfortable and even in Houston heat, can't say they are any worse than without them.

Neoprene is a superb material for wetsuits but not, in my personal opinion, for seat covers. It looks nice and is comfortable but neoprene is not waterproof, it soaks up liquids if not wiped up right away, and it soaks up perspiration. Not to mention the colored cover materials fade if they see much sun, and they fade unevenly too. Red turns to pink, black turns to purple.

Personally, I wouldn't run any neoprene seat cover. And I sure wouldn't run a Wet Okole since they cost more than some seats do! By the way, Wet Okole means 'Wet Butt' in Hawaiian. How true that is if the seats get wet from rain. You can't just wipe them off if it has already soaked in, you have to sit on a towel or get a 'Wet Okole'.
When you have a choice, buy American.

I bought a set of Rugged Ridge covers because they were cheap and I "needed" something fast. They look and fit great, but I don't expect them to hold up for very long.

I've had Iggee covers for other cars, and they'll hold up much better than Neoprene but won't fit as good.

I just ordered a set of Marathon seat covers. Expensive, but it seemed like all the reviews I read were good. Unfortunately since they are custom made its about a 7 week wait so I don't have them yet. I'll be sure to post up when I get them.
