Factory leather vs katskinz vs trek armor?

I saw a thread on Factory Leather vs. Katskinz but I didn't want to hijack that thread, as I have something to add, what about Trek Armor?

Thoughts?

Also take in the account of going on winter trips, e.g snowboarding.

I can tell you the Trek Armor covers are excellent. Very well made and a perfect fit. They are water resistant also.

Talking

I kind of need to echo everyone else - Trek Armor seat covers are da bomb.

I put mine in two weeks ago and couldn't be happier with them.

The Trek Armor pictures look wrinkly.

they were just put on and were all wrapped up tight for shipping into 8" diameter rolls. All of it fit into those two sacks you see in one of the pictures. So you would have to give it awhile to let them unwrinkle by themselves. It is cold here now and I would think in the warmer weather they would unwrinkle faster.

I would be interested to see people with unwrinkled ones.

I have leather seats, and i love them. But, I'm also the reason we can't have nice things, so i need to think of the future.

Just do a search here for Trek Armor and you will see a few.
I will go run down to the parking lot and see if some of mine
are gone already.

Damm .... rainy and getting cold here but just for you KittyPrawn
I went and checked. Most of the back seat ones are gone.
I did not use the tie string on them yet. Maybe that will
help with the front ones. Also remember the Trek Armor
ones have padding built in also and since being rolled up
very, very tight for shipment it cause wrinkles. I would
bet it will not be long the wrinkles will be gone.

So it definitely unwrinkles? All the pics do have a look of wrinkle to them.

YES ! Mine only show because they come rolled up wicked tight.
You would surprised seeing the way it all comes in 2 small boxes.
People have posted pictures on the web without wrinkles.
I think I have a picture of them rolled up.
I will try to find it and post it.

A few months ago I sent katzkin an email on their website form asking who my local katzkin dealers were and they said they'd get back to me. They never did. FAIL. No way I'm paying my Jeep dealer to order or install them since it will cost $300 more most likely.

Hey Everyone ...
I posted pictures back in my post on how they
are shipped so you can see why the wrinkles
may or may not be there when you first put
them on.

Can anyone else with Trek Armor post their pics?

I'm sort of considering not going this route anymore due to side airbag issue but I dunno...
