Seat covers/ new seats

I am beginning to do research on seat covers. I don't like the idea of a wet bottom that the wet okle covers are famous for in hot weather, then again, should I just let my seats wear out, and get new seats later on.. Some of the aftermarket seats look very comfortable, a lot more supportive than the stockers,, any thoughts ?

Never liked seat covers. I have a big hole in the driver seat and I might go the reupholstery route although the cost is as much as a new seat.

I tossed around the idea of seat covers for a while myself but never followed through. Anyways.. these are kinda pricey but I havent heard any complaints about them and they are waterproof.

Those covers look really nice. I don't do stuff that would soak or trash my seats or I would have bought something like them. I bought the less expensive cloth Bestops (just like I had on mu old YJ) to keep down the dirt and the wear of the seat fabric. They fit pretty good.

They look nice. Not any more expensive than others.
