We use Black Ducks in our work trucks and they are great, protect the seats the grit from the bushfires, embers aswell and all the grease from general work duties. When they come off the seats are brand new.Cheers, Beddo

The phone number for Black Duck canvas is 1800 803 825 there at Gnowangerup WA. Good product we've got them in our farm utes and tractors, save a lot of cleaning and also quite alot of repair work to seats.

Hi guys,

While on the subject, I was wondering what these canvas covers were like to sit on on a hot day, do you get that initial 'stinging' as the hot seat lets heat into your legs, if so is it as bad as (vinyl or leather) for instance? Also does the canvas absorb sweat as well as (cloth seats etc)?

Hi Eric,
Check out this link on ebay...

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2437361298&category=30862

I saw this ad last time he advertised....

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?MfcISAPICommand=ViewItem&item=2429551750

Not sure if he is the black duck manufacturer or what, but worth contacting him if it is, seems a good price. I contacted him about getting the 50/50 rear seats for an 80 series and he said he could make them up for $215. Seems pretty reasonable.

Cheers

The black duck range is available at TJM megastores.I think I saw it there the other day.
Here is another top quality alternative www.michellessacs.co.au. They operate out of Malaga in WA and have a full range seat of covers for all pop makes as well as bags for recovery,camping and spares

I have Black ducks in the front of my 60 series and front and back in the 80 series. They are well worth the money and their delivery service is excellent.

Eric,
I chose to get my canvas seatcovers from Sunset Canvas in Toowoomba, Qld, over the black duck items. Cost was the same ($180 for drivers and passengers seats in a 75 series cruiser).

My experience with the black duck covers is that they are one piece and I personally didn't like the way that they fitted around the base of the seat (I always felt like the cover was hanging off the seat back and not sitting down on the swab properly,...felt like I was sliding off the front of the seat!). The Sunset items are two piece and I feel that they fit better.

They wear well, dont show the dirt and dont stick to your legs. Wouldn't be without them.

Cheers
Craig
