suggestions on water resistant seat covers

Getting tired of wet butt whenever it rains. I use a bikini top only this time of year in Texas, but we sometimes still get rain. Suggestions for water repelling seat covers for a 91?

I usually put my seat back forward, then most of it will run off the backs of them. Also carry a towel. Are they leather? Mine are, thats why I don't mind so much. If they were felt I'd be bumming for sure w/the top off in the rain.

yeah, i guess i didnt think about the hot leather in hot weather factor, you could always flip the seats forward like sevenservices said and then put garbage bags over them.

I always carry a couple big black garbage bags in mine.
