Seat cover question

Ok...

I am having a real hard time finding a solid fitting seat cover for an '06 X. Is there anyone out there that makes a water-resistant seat cover that has the cut outs for the seat raiser on the headrest etc.etc?

I want a seat cover that fits like a glove. Am I being unrealistic? Am I going to have to get used to the loose fit of most other seat covers that claim they are made specifically for my seat?

Also, if possible, I was looking at a camo design. Am I up the creek without a paddle? I saw Bestop claims they have glove tight seat covers, but they have a limited color/design selection. Anyone have experience with these? I'd hate to order them only to find out they don't fit. That's always frustrating!

If I can't find camo I will go with black, since that's the color of my interior (and my recently Herculined tub ).

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I have not heard many good things about the neoprene seat covers...seem to recall mention of the dreaded "Swamp Butt".

Actual, went to wally world and picked out some tweed styled seat covers and modified them to fit. More like the rug style material.

The 2nd set of covers is some soft sponge foamy material and has not held up nearly as well.

My Friend has the Bestop covers on hes Jeep and they are great and high quality too,Im looking to get one of these covers too,and they are around $99 per pair.
Neoprene seatcovers are the worst for water proofing,they are like sponges.

I just got a set in minutes ago from IGEEE. I'll let you know tomorrow how they fit. Doubt I can give you any long-term review for a while
