Hi guy's, I was in arb on Saturday and saw a set of neoprene seat covers on special but the only had em for a hilux. I was just curios if any one else has fitted these and how do they rate them. the throw over one that i've got is starting to bunch up and annoy the hell out of me.

Sound awful to me.

What colours do they come in?

What is special about Hilux? Surely they would fit a lot of seats of similar size and shape? Neoprene is stretchy.

I reckon it would be horribly hot in some situations.

On the surface I would be nervous about how hot they would get in the summer. I don't think neoprene breathes, making things sweaty on a hot day.

They may have a solution, as I find it difficult to think they would put something like that on sale, knowing the apparent pitfalls.

Closed cell neoprene wont breath, but open cell will. I have a piece in my left hand at this very moment.

I asked the price because the cost that i pay for Neo open cell is about $27.50 per sq m. That doesn't leave much for manufacture. But they may buy lots more than I .
I buy about 12 sqm /month, but am unlikly to use the stuff as a seat cover.I also have nice sheets of leather to use as a seat cover,for about the same price, but as yet have not bothered.

I have Neopren throw-overs for my leather seats. I use them when I come from the boat and am still wet when I climb behind the wheel.
Good for that purpose but to sit on all the time ?? noooo way

good luck
