The prototype will be for defender front seats, if there's interest we can expand to the other models.

What's the story on covers for manual RRC seats?

I'd really like some of these.

If I understand correctly, the only difference between the electric and the manual seats would be that the manual seat covers wouldn't have the hole for the controller box on the side. If this is correct it's obviously not a problem to make them up.

The manual seats have a wheel to control seat recline instead of the control box.
I'll take a close look at them side by side this week.

RRC rear 'tactical' MOLLE covers

Aside from the tire cover I got from Tony (Kexby) prior to VOT I wanted something to cover up the 60 section of the rear seat that remains. I also wanted to flexibility of using the space behind the seat to add in pouches so I worked (and prodded...and annoyed...) Tony to push on the tactical setup. Note that my loadspace has a minimal amount of unused space; the cover's MOLLE strapping along the bottom integrated perfectly with the cargo barrier in place already and allowed for the use of dead space extremely well.

The overall fit and finish of these covers is superb. Given the total absence of RRC covers on the market, they more than adequately fill the void-I'd say they surpass any reasonable expectation.

Much of VOT will likely see the 60 section consumed...these covers jumped into the fray already and I expect they'll do well. Looking forward to matching a set of D1 front seat covers eventually! Also believe we'll have a set of front RRC seats covered in them for the other teammate's vehicle.

Question for these with these installed: Hows the fit once installed? Do they slip around much to speak of? One thing that drives me nuts about a lot of covers is the constant slip of the cover, you never feel secure in the seat. Do these slide and move when you jump in making you feel like you need to adjust them or that you're going to slip on the seat in off camber driving? Know what i mean?

I've considered having the center panels on my seats redone in suede for just this reason.

Having had a lot of seat covers in life I know what you mean. I've torn 3 sets out in fits of rage because they slide around so/too much. That said, these do move a bit, but no where near as much as others. Mine scoots a tad every time I get in, so every 5th time I get in I tug it back about .75" not too bad. But still, sort of the nature of a seat cover.

Thank you. I accept its a cover.... just trying to decide if I just get a back seat cover for the dogs etc and leave the fronts alone. Or maybe see if he can add a couple extra straps or something to mine.

Thanks for all of the great input and questions! There are really two factors at work here: 1. We have to balance the tightness of the fit of the covers with the ease of installation. If you can't install them, no matter how tight they fit, they'll be useless. We feel that we've hit a good balance between the two. 2. Because most seats are designed with higher sides than the middle section, its a challenge getting the middle sections highly tensioned as you can't strap them Laterally without crushing the side bolsters. Again, we feel as though we've hit a good compromise here. At the end of the day these, by design, simply won't be the same solution a reupholstering your seats with new leather, but then they're not supposed to be!

Keep coming with the great discussion and suggestions for improvements and changes! We are staying very iterative with our various designs and the feedback is much appreciated!
