Introducing Knightsbridge Overland Seat Covers and Expedition Gear

As some of you know, I recently acquired the Kexby Land Rover Seat Cover Business and moved manufacturing, re-branded the company and opened an online
retail store called Knightsbridge Overland (
www.knightsbridgeoverland.com). We offer Overland Expedition Gear including custom fit,Tactical and non-Tactical Seat Covers and Spare Tire Covers specifically designed for many 'classic' Land Rovers: Series, Range Rover Classics, Defenders and Discovery I's.

Our Seat Covers are made of 600 Denier Cordura material that is water, oil and dust resistant. They're extremely comfortable, easy to install and keep you warmer in the Winter and cooler in the Summer. They are available for front, middle and rear seats and come in Tan, Black and Grey. Each Seat Cover is custom-made so they look almost like OEM seat upholstery so they not only dress up your Rover but protect and add functionality, too.

For those familiar with the Kexby brand, we at Knightsbridge Overland are committed to providing the quality and service levels that Kexby customers' have come to expect. And, we are working to expand the line as well to include other Land Rover models, new fabrics and innovative product offerings.

I encourage you to check out the online store at www.knightsbridgeoverland.com. D-90 Source members will receive a 10% discount (enter code: S66PJIQ8SQEY at check out).

Also, if you have a moment, I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd visit the Knightsbridge Overland page on Facebook and "Like" us.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Thanks so much!

John

John: I am very happy that someone as "attentive to detail" as you took this on mate! You should do well. Now, a set of them on a Disco II would be nice.
Good luck mate.

Jonesy,
Thanks for the kind words and encouragement!
In fact, we're working on patterns for DII this month and will have production sampes ready by mid-Summer.
I'll post up when they're ready.
Cheers!

Brett,
While our offices are in Chicago, our manufacturing facility is in Phoenix so everything ships from there. I'm back and forth between Chicago/Phoenix periodically and depending on your sense of urgency for the Seat Covers, I may be able to hand deliver them to you in Chicago. PM me and we can work through the details.

Thanks for your interest in Knightsbridge Overland!

These prices reflect the usual D90 Source discount of 10% off plus an additional 5% off. Shipping will be $30 Conus. Plus each order will receive a little Knightsbridge bling. This saves you 15% and 3-4 weeks of production time. Defender front seats will fit all Defenders through 2006: Defender, Black, front Seat Covers (2), Non-tactical $233 Defender, Black, front Seat Covers (2), Non-tactical $233 Defender, Tan/Tan Piping, front Seat Covers (2), Tactical $263 Defender NAS forward-facing rear Seat Cover, Non-Tactical $191 Ranger Rover Classic seats will fit all two-post headrest seats from 1987-1995: Range Rover Classic, Tan, front Seat Covers (2), non-Tactical, $229. Photos are representative of the actual Seat Covers but colors may vary. Description above is accurate regarding color and style. I can send you actual photos of you want them. PM me if you're interested. Thanks for looking.

These look really great.

Have you ever thought about making them with pockets for seat heater pads?

Jason,
Thanks for the compliment. Our clients really like the overall look, durability and functionality of the Seat Covers.

I really like your idea of seat heater pad pockets. Being a product development guy, I'm always looking for new product ideas. We currently have some plans on the drawing board (okay actually in CAD) for a heated and cooled Seat Cover. I'm pretty excited about the future product line.

Thanks for sharing your idea.
