Choosing the Best Truck Seat Covers


If you are sold on the idea of protecting your truck's upholstery from sun, water, spills, tears, routine wear, dog hair, and your less tidy passengers, you know that truck seat covers make the most sense. They are easy, convenient, and can be chosen to fit your lifestyle and needs. Covers provide one more way that you can optimize your truck and make it suit you a bit more perfectly. Why settle for less when you can get the comfort, style, and function you want with a seat cover?

The two most important factors to consider when choosing the best truck seat covers are fit and fabric. You'll also want to throw price in there too. It is best to get the best that your budget can afford because the covers will last much longer, perform better, and offer greater protection for your interior. Fabric and fit will determine the level of protection and comfort you get from the covers.

Fit. Good fit is crucial. You could always save time and money and throw a bed sheet over your seats. Problem solved right? Except that this provides virtually no protection from rips, wear, water, sun, spills, odor, and other enemies of the upholstery. In addition, water, dust, dirt, and pet dander can still find their way onto your upholstery, so you're really not accomplishing much here. One more disadvantage: you'll constantly be adjusting an ill-fitting seat cover, which makes it a bigger hassle than it's worth.

A universal, or one-size-fits-all, cover is a step up from a sheet or blanket, but it can still present problems if you don't happen to have a standard body type or seat style. It might be designed for a vehicle that is very similar to yours, which may work if you're lucky. If not, you are not getting optimal protection. A semi-custom cover is a step up. You get the cover that is designed for your body type to ensure proper fit. A custom seat cover is the best because it provides glove-like fit with accommodations for any extras or accessories you may have installed.

Fabric. Your choice of fabric will depend on your needs, what you use your truck for, and what kind of weather conditions you experience. For instance, those who live in warm climates or who drive a great deal in the summer may prefer a mesh seat cover for breathability and comfort. Those who are very active and need rugged seats may want vinyl or neoprene. Leather is always a good choice for those who need durability, style, and texture. Tweed or saddle blanket covers may be best for those on a budget. The choices are many, and it is a good idea to take a look at your fabric options to decide on what is best for you. You can balance your needs with what you would like, and you can often do it very affordably and easily.

Car and truck seat covers help you prolong the life and appearance of your interior. It is an easy way to prevent damage — and an equally easy way to hide that damage. Get the best you can afford today, and you'll be riding in style every time you start up your truck.
