what seat covers do you use

hey guys,
Im have a birthday coming up and im either going to ask or treat myself to some nice seat covers. I was wondering what you guys used and how you liked them. I been looking at cabelas at some neoprene covers, whats your thoughts on them. If you guys have any pics of your seat covers that would be great. Thanks for your time and any pics Brad

I just got a set of marathon seat covers for my truck. I really like them they are a bit pricey but well worth the money and the wait. They are water proof and really tough. I can take some pics and put them up early next week if you want.

I agree with brinker!!!! bought a set of marathon seat covers about a year and a half ago and they still look new, each set is custom fitted to your series of truck so there is NO slack in the seat covers at all(some people cant even tell you have seat covers on until they feel the fabric)...they are almost like a gortex. i give this product a 5 star rating and highly reccomend

I agree we had marathon seat covers on my wifes F150 and they fit like a glove, even tighter, they were tought to get on but damn they looked good. They are a bit pricey but they are tough and will last

Got a set from Cabela's about seven years ago, I've had them in two trucks, they have held up real well.

Marathon...these are my second set. They are pricey but you will not wear them out. With either the 500D or 1000D Cordura these things are bomb proof. More colors and patterns give you plenty of options.

Headwaters seat covers, from what I here they are the same thing as marathon except headwaters is a smaller family run business, so there is more attention to detail with the same quality materials

I've got Cabela's TrailGear™ Seat Covers I've yet to get the matching one on the rear bench though, been waiting for warmer weather since it will be a snugger install. I especially like all the pouches and pockets on the back. If you want something tough but dont want to spend major coin, or cant at the moment, then I'd deff get these if you have buckets up front. I will let you know how the bench cover install goes if interested. I'm thinking it would be easier to get a custom fit cover for the bench seat as universal bench covers, even if made for trucks with headrests etc.. run small/snug and require a lot...buddy of mine has the realtree ones from wal*mart in is 05-07 Superduty CC. Buckets looked fine but you could tell he couldnt get the rear bench all the way on (slack in headrest cover portion) hope this novel helps
