I've been looking for canvas seat covers for some time.

Black duck look the goods but pricey.

Melvill and Moon from UK look the ducks guts but also 215 pounds.

I decided I wouldn't worry.

Then I was in Autopro today and they had various offerings. I bought a pair for the front seats for $69.

Mine are 'canvas look alike'. The real canvas were an unattractive grey and were $195.

I figured with cloth upholstery I could get away with synthetic fabric. Vinyl seats and you'd need canvas.

Black duck $418

Melvill and Moon $352

Its hard to see how a simple canvas cover can cost so much.

I bought the Autobarn ones a couple of years ago, good for the price. They've had a few cape trips, washed them a couple of times in the machine, came up good.
There are convenient pockets at the back, sides and front.
The only time I made a mistake was when I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken.

Supercheap had some excellent sheepskin covers, with back pockers and side designed to be OK for airbags, at $179 a pair last week. Got some. Thois week, not sure if they still have them at that price..

I also had the same dilema and ended up buying a set of front seat canvas covers from Autopro for $180 a pair about 4 months ago. Was pretty happy at that price, would have been exstatic at $69. They are on my farm ute, cop a beating and handle it all well.
Good luck to you @ $69!
