Land Rover seat covers versus others

Trying to see how the regular waterproof land rover seat covers compare to others (badger, neoprene, etc). Has anybody had both and could give some insight? Pros/Cons. I just want my seats to be protected by functional/durable covers. Thanks!

The genuine ones are quite thin and are one piece. They are nice, but the badger are in a league of their own.

I have both.

So you like the original covers? All I care is if they keep water out of the cushions and they stay on properly.

While I have no doubt that Badger covers are top notch and MM et al. are also very good. I am very satisfied with my relatively inexpensive one piece Britpart covers.

I think the originals are decent for the price. As I recall they stained quickly. The PO of my 90 said he put them on day one. I kept them on for a few years and decided I wanted a different look so I removed them. My fronts look as good as my rear jumps which get less action. Recent pic. (I also switch my seat bottoms passenger to driver and visa versa 3-4x a year).

Originals keep water out. They don't stay on as well as badger especially on vinyl seats but they stay on well enough (they just shift a bit).

Thanks guys. I'm going to go with the normal LR covers. I can't seem to get ahold of Badger after multiple emails. Oh well...

There's a guy here that is making custom covers too if you want a third option.

(Raising my hand). BEIS, we are pretty proud of the seat covers we have just released. I have a thread in the vendors area or you can see them at www.kexbylimited.com

Thanks,
Tony

I have the originals and think they're great. The fit and finish is solid and they hold very well. Anything Badger is top notch, but you'll be happy with the LR's.


Oh, by the way, much better to go old fashioned and give Chris at Badger a call rather than email.
