    Anybody found a good set of waterproof seat covers worth buying?

    I'm very familiar with those seat covers. We used them in the lifeguard trucks in HB. However that was years ago and didn't know if there was anything better out there. Thank you for the reply.

    @kitesurfsd, how did you like the wetokole? How did they hold up? I've been thinking about them for my tacoma, but they cost so much.

    A true test on any off road item would be to give to any lifeguard agency. Saltwater, sand and constant in and out of the seats (wet), always in 4wd and going slow. If I remember correctly they held up pretty well. Some did get faded, however you have to remember that they sit in the sun all day. I don't know if they still use them, but they had them in all the vehicle's back in the late 90's early 2000's.

    Thank you. I have a swimming pool company and we get wet on a regular bases, saltwater pools, chlorine pools and rain. Sounds like they might be worth it. How did they fit? Did they stay in place or slide around?

    Guys I've had mine for 2 years now and I absolutely love them they were great the wetter they get the better they feel. You can machine wash them on low but make sure you hang dry them always

    I actually just washed them last week they were full of dog hair. There on my back seat of my 4runner. I guess I really need to put them back on lol... Also they can do custom lettering logos etc. I had mine done with just 4Runner on the covers and they came out great!

    I ran covercraft on my 04 when I had it - lived by the beach and surfed a lot more back then, they held up better than my Wet okale's did to be honest and were quite a bit cheaper. The neoprene also adds a ton more comfort to our seats. I will be getting them again for this one, but it's low on the list this time around, need to install the lift I have sitting in the garage, get alignment, and then spacers and tires and probably do the rack setup before I look at 400+ for seat covers:)

    Sorry it's taken s so long man. Here they are. I had them do a custom logo on mine bit I tried to keep a factory look and clean. The piping is black with tan covers and black stiching.
