|oresti||i have a set of okoles' on my front seats and i love them.As far as 'they don't breathe',that's true.Right now ,where i live is well below freezing and they do just fine.Overall,i would say a good investment althought a bit expensive if you choose okole.|

|amerijeep||That's good advice John. I'm actually on me second set of second hand neoprene seat covers. I have bought them on Ebay rather cheaply while still in good condition. Use 'em until they start looking sad, then get another.|

I have had Wet Okoles installed since about may of this year. They have held up rather well, at least the black panels. I got the solid black with full red piping. They look very sharp and the fit is fanstastic. Most people think I purchased aftermarket seats. The red piping has started to fade a bit. I kept my top down for the whole summer so I guess that is to be expected. However in hindsight I would recommend people in the market for seat covers to go a cheap route. Think of seat covers as floor mats. They are there to get beat up on. Don't spend a lot of money on them. I spent way to much for my wet okoles. I could have applied that money to other more useful modifications.

|Preat||I got the Smitybilt neoprene covers from JC Whitney. They look awesome installed (most people don't even realize they are covers) and even add a bit of extra padding to the seat making it a bit more comfortable. I haven't been through the steamy southern summer with them yet, but so far they have been great. They don't seem to be hot or cold, but juuust right!|

I agree with the quote except for having to live with non-breathing of the seat covers. Since my covers are grey/black and I want to stay as cool as possible during my TOD, I put a white beach towel over seats. Still maintains their water resistance, while keeping you dry and cool. I know it sounds funny to cover the covers, but it works.

JCWhitney has the Smittybuilt neoprene seats on special (rear seat for free). This was psoted on one of the other forums and I bought a set--can't wait to get them.
BTW, check the promos on the page also, shipping is free til the 31st, just put the code in the order form. I have ordered from JCWhitney many times and have been really happy with them.

|Master Shake||I keep looking for a really good fitting seat cover but can't seem to find any for my 99 TJ Sport. Anybody have any recommendations? Links?|

|my98tj||I have vinyl seats already, so they don't breathe very well anyway. but i figure i can get the same affect from them so i don't need neoprene. Thanks fellas.|

|khenderson||the covers themselves do not get very hot or very cold. they stay very neutral as far as temp goes, however, like amerijeep said, they don't breathe and that can make them quite uncomfortable in the heat if you have to ride for a while.|

|Master Shake||Do they freeze up in extreme cold, like -20?|

|amerijeep||They can get a little sweaty because they don't breathe very well. They are, however very durable and look great. You won't find a better fit. They don't get very hot or cold. The temp is fine. The only drawback is the not breathing. It's something you have to live with if you have them.|

neoprene seat covers
do neoprene seat covers get real hot in the summer? are they cold in the winter? i'm looking at getting some but don't know the specifics.
