Cold/Hot Seasons & Badger Seat Covers?

Hi All (& Badgerman):

I have been considering a set of Badger's seat covers for a while. I wanted to get some thoughts from those of you that have them, and Chris since you make them:

My questions:

1. Do they make the stock vinyl seats any cooler to sit on during the summer?
- any warmer during the winter?

2. How resistant are they to abrasions?

3. It looks like you lose the pockets on the back side of the front seats. I don't think this is a real problem, just curious if anyone doesn't like this feature.

4. Any other functional reasons, personal accounts, stories - to go with Badgers that I might not be considering, other than the fact that they look cool?

I appreciate your thoughts.

Will

Hi Will,

First off, I have a set of covers for my two front seats and I just got a new set of 4 for my rear jump seats. The quality is the best. You will not find a better seat cover. The fit is perfect. In the summer I noticed that the front seat covers didn't get so hot becasue of the cloth matierial rather than the shinny vinyl. I really don't think they offer any warmth. The are really tough though. Pretty much the same matierial used in high quality backpacks (cordura). I have a 94 and my seats don't have pockets on the back so I can't answer that question. They are not cheap, but when I get another Rover it will be one of the first upgrades that I will do. I think they are worth it. I had Chris from Badger sew the Badger Logos on all of the jump seat covers so everything matched. They really turned out great. Give him a call he can answer any question you throw at him regarding seat covers or tops. If you want me to send some pictures let me know.

All the best.,

I live them in AZ and I think they are one of the best mods to get for the money. Mine have proven very durable. Fit is very tight, which prevents them from sliding around. They are cooler over the vinyl seats in the heat. Highly recommended.

Ditto on all the above. Fit is the best you'll find. Tough construction. Looks great.
Best mod for the money. Do it.
