Which seats do better if wet

So if I get the seats wet, either from weather or mud or whatever, which seat is going to recover better, leather or cloth or is there another option?

Horsepower is like a hot girl with STDs. You know you want to hit it but you're afraid of the consequences.

I'd imagine it depends on how wet they get. Neoprene seat covers are abundant and fit well. Other than vinyl neoprene might be best for repeated soakings.

Real Jeeps are built, not "bolt-on"!

Vinyl. Looks like leather. Totally waterproof. Mud wipes right off.

Neoprene is not nice when wet. It stays damp, and your clothes get damp from it.

Vinyl is decent though very hot in summer. I have vinyl, but I have 'seat protectors' over them. These are easily removable loose fitting covers that you can throw in the washer then put them back on. They also provide some heat protection from the vinyl underneath in summer.

Are these are all seat covers or did you order a jeep with vinyl seats. I haven't seen that as a option from the factory.
