What's the best waterproof seat cover for a YJ?

I'm trying to decide which seat cover to get for my 94 yj that will protect my seats in case I get caught in the rain with the top off. I tried just putting garbage bags over the seats and covering that with the crappy seat covers that I have now but it was kinda uncomfortable to sit in because you can feel the cover and everything sliding around.

I've done some research and narrowed it down to 3 covers that all say they're waterproof, the Wet Okole, Diver down neoprene covers, and Bartact covers.

The bartact covers look the nicest but problem is they don't make them for YJ's, the oldest model it shows on their website is for 97 TJ's. I was wondering though if the TJ covers would fit stock YJ seats or are the seats too different?

Now the wet okole and diver down covers do fit YJ's and the diver down ones are cheaper but the okole's seem like they're a little nicer. Also both of these ones are neoprene and I've heard that neoprene isn't actually waterproof. Has anyone had experience with these covers? I'm wondering which ones are nicer and if they are actually waterproof or not?

Any help would be appreciated

I bought mine for $25. Its mostly vinyl except for the back. It was loose when I first had them until I sprayed adhesive onto them. Now they look much better. Sorry I don't have a full pic of them anymore.

Bartact did offer them about a year ago for a short while, I can only assume they didn't sell real well @ $299... however they may indeed have some if you give them a call.

I have a couple friends who run Wet Okole’s in other vehicles that we take hunting sometimes. We come back wet/muddy/dirty/burnt up and they haven’t had issues. Mind you they stay in covered trucks and not direct weather, but from what I’ve seen they’ve held up pretty nice.
