I'm not sure how close it is but one thing to consider is the fading of neoprene covers.

What may look good when you install will fade quickly and look completely different and not match your crush exterior. Neoprene fades to a purplish color.

So do you recommend the cotton ones?

I'd recommend reading all the posts about neoprene and see if it will suit your purposes. I was set to get them but after reading MANY posts I decided to go in another direction as I didn't want my covers fading or swamp ass.

I went with Trek Armor covers. They are relativity new but area a perfect fit and durable with no fading. They have zippered pockets and MOLLE straps for attaching a multitude of bags, packs, holsters, etc.

I'm very happy with mine and would buy them again in a heartbeat.

I bought Wet Okole front covers for my 05 a few years back. I asked for orange inserts. They sent me 3 differnt versions of orange swatches to choose from. I chose the one that matched my Impact Orange as close as possible.

They do cause swamp ass. And they were not a custom fit. They looked good though. I won't be buying them for my 12.
