Waterproof seat covers

Does anyone have experience with or an opinion about any particular brand of waterproof seat covers? My kids are killing me with stepping on my seats to get to the back and thought a problem solver would be seat covers.

I've seen the Exmoor and Badger works covers. Just looking for experience with either or another reputable brands. Wanted to see fit and quality of what you have used. Don't really want a baggy so-so fit cover if I can help it.

Thanks in advance

Michael.

I loved my Wet Okole seat covers. Cool in the summer, warm in the winter and waterproof.

Badger are great. Stock land rover are ok, but don't last as well.

I was amazed at how well the Badgers fit, you cant tell there is a seat cover on the seat. I really like the material, it is easy to slide in and out.

I have the badgers on the front seats and the rear bench and they are great. The kids and golden retriever and only a little hair to show for it.

I have badgers and like them. For my dog though I prefer the genuine ones. They are easier to wipe off in place being that they are vinyl. Of course with that my dog rips them and slides around. I wash my badgers once a month in the machine with no issue.

thats a good foot note. If you have a dog that rides in your truck dont get the okoles. They attract dog air like a lint brush. never had badgers so cant comment on them.

I will second the Wet Okole covers. They fit great and are easy to take off/clean. I also opted for their heating elements which is very nice when the temps dip outside!

Thanks for the responses! I think that I am going to go with the Badger covers. They look solid and many great endorcements here. Only one thing to do now is order. What do you prefer, the grey with he black sides or the solid black? These are going into a BRG 97 ST. What do you think?

Thanks in advance

I have the black ones and they look awesome (search "Shameless Badger Promotion" for photos, as I think Chris still has not posted photos of them yet). They're made of backpack material type of stuff. No, because they're black does not mean they get excessively hot in the sun in the Summer, but they probably get a little hotter than the grey ones...I do not have both colors, so do not know. But regardless it was not bad whatever heat was retained on the seats.
