Has anybody had any experience of canvas seat covers? Are they comfortable or do they make the back of the legs and bum a bit sweaty and raw?

Any makes recommended?

I have just purchased a set of Black Duck canvas covers but as yet they are still to arrive and as such haven't been fitted. I shall let you know as soon as I have experienced them for a while but I have friends who have similar and swear by them. Especially good I would imagine if your fourby is an everyday user.

Black Duck 1-800 803 825
Mallee Swags previous owners are very good friends of mine and the guy that bought their business by all accounts is well up to carrying on the good name. I have several of their swags (didn't know they did seat covers but it makes sense that they would) and have sold several to my friends up here in Pilbara.
My seat covers cost me $10 freight to Port Hedland so I don't imagine you'd pay much more than that anywhere else. I bought a front bucket and a 3/4 front bucket for Landcruiser for $198.00.
Hope this helps

Mike, I've got Mallee Swags fitted to my Rodeo farm ute. IMHO they are comfy and you don't seem to make me sweaty and certainly don't rub me raw. I've had these for about 5 years and as you can imagine they have copped a hammering, got some scorch marks from flying embers in bushfires and are just starting to show some wear on the seat where the driver always gets in contact with it first. Mallee Swags are in Northam WA (11 Peel Tce ph 9622 1869) and, I believe, is now owned by one of the guys who worked for the original owner. They do all sorts of other canvas work. We have 4 swags from them and find these excellent as well. Black Duck seat covers are also the ducks nuts and were in Gnowangerup WA but I'm not sure if they are still there. Coops will probably enlighten you. The seat covers will keep your cloth seats clean, are pretty waterproof and tough. SK

Mike, We've got 2 l'cruisers and a dual cab hilux with Black Duck covers, I'd endorse everyone else's comments. Easy to fit, fit well and are comfortable. The hilux covers don't stay on as well as the cruiser ones. Supply is quick too.

Mark,
Our L/C's are Cab Chassis, so have similar seating to Std wagon. Am sure Black Duck would stock them as well.

I recall that Candy Canvas in Tintinara, South Aus, make canvas seat covers, too. They also do good swags. Their ads are in most 4WD mags. Rick.

I have had Black Ducks on my buckets and bench seats, and they are great. I was a bit worried at first about them being uncomfortable, but they have turned out to be very comfortable. You don't have to worry about getting in with wet clobber on if you have been fishing or something.
