JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
I was reminded once again how awesome these seat covers were yesterday, after they came out of the washing machine for the first time. (no dryer) They have been on for almost a year and have been through desert sun, lots of dirt, and a couple really heavy thunderstorms, that I was totally unprepared for. I figured they would look good after a washing, but hey came out of the wash looking new again! I am so glad! I hate nasty seats. Anyway, I figured we are getting kind of close to the time of year we anticipate taking the top off again and a good seat cover review might just come in handy for some folks!
The elements are brutal on the interior of my Jeep. The sun dries and discolors, the dirt turns the seat brown and it never comes clean. Even the water stains left from getting into the...always fun river pass are impossible to get rid of. All you can do is try and keep the seats covered.
In the past, I've always went for the neoprene seatcover. Two reasons... One, because of the cost. A few hundred bucks and you're good for a couple years. Two, I hate when the seat cover doesn't fit tightly around my origional seat. The neoprene covers always fit the best. Until now!
I decided a few weeks ago, summer was coming and I need to review some good seat protection options for those of us that are looking. This time, I wanted to go with something different. Something..."higher end". So, I searched and searched and found what seemed like a good option. Trek Armor!
Trek Armor makes a very impressive cover that is actually nicer looking than the original factory interior! Lots of color options, and really easy to install. In fact, I installed them in the parking lot in front of the store in about 25 minutes.
Made from a waterproof backed polyester, these covers are super durable. The military inspired design insure the zippers are extra heavy duty, and the strap on storage system allows you to add storage as needed. One of my favorite features is the front pocket. It's perfect for you wallet and smartphone when the doors are off. Lastly, there are no weak plastic hooks, no Velcro, and no elastic straps that eventually stretch out. It fits tight and ties down with paracord.
These seat covers are easily the best I've ever used, or even seen really. The Trek Armor seat covers will set you back a pretty penny at about $550 bucks for the entire set, but hopefully the three year guarantee that Trek Armor gives against fading will at least set your mind at ease before dropping the cash.
I saved the best for last...These seat covers are 100% MADE IN THE USA!
