What I did to my Exmoor's was to put covers on them. I bought them for comfort more than cover. Tony Brooks Kexby covers would work for you!

Holy thread revival! Sheki, Yousef, and the old bunch.

Rick, there's no great option for Texas heat. I always had swamp ass with my 94 NAS seats (vinyl). Had leather in my other vehicles and it was the same deal. My current Defender has cloth and it's a little better but not perfect. There's only so much you can ask for with no A/C, 105 degrees and 70% humidity out. Downside to cloth seats is they show dirt a little more--at least my black cloth does.

The "OUTLAST" fabric is a fair compromise - but the black really shows dirt (if you care).

I have enjoyed these. My only regret was not installing the seat heaters.

Hi chaps,
The mesh seats are great in the heat, if I could have removed the door I'd have been afraid to yawn in case I whistled.
I've driven a few 110's with them fitted but not logged any great distance & not sure how they would be in the cold especially with the draft that gets through the door gaps.

regards
Gren

Nobody makes decent canvas seat covers for Series seats. We get no respect.

Well that's easily resolved! If there's a market I'll happily get a template made up.

Tony....while you're at it, don't forget the rear Puma lock and folds pattern! I'm drooling for a front set of yours, but I need the matching rear seats too!
