Best waterproof for seats?

Live in S.Florida, so it's raining 19 times a day during summer months... Just bought some seat covers. What's best way to rain proof them? Rest of jeep is rhino lined.

What material are they made of?

Anyway, I'm a bit intrigued by Rustoleum's new product, NeverWet which SEEMS to be downright fantastic no matter what. I'm not sure if it has a scent when dry or how long an application lasts (or if it really works as well as the demos make it seem), but if it's the real deal...

Awesome, ill check it out. The seats are primarily canvas. Also, should the seams be treated desperately?

And after doing some research, many reviews specify the Neverwet leaving "a frost color or bluish hue" to anything g black.... Not good for my Black and Tan rig....

I sprayed neverwet on my driver seat bottom. It does dry with a haze, almost a matte finish. The problem is that after 3 weeks of me sitting on it it has lost its ability to repel water. It works great when it was first on, but it does dry hazey and it is rough. It made my butt feel like it was rubbing off as I drove and now after last nights rainstorms I have proof that it was. The very back of the seat that my butt does not reach still repels water great, but do not use it on your seats. It will make them look dull, it will make your butt feel bad and after a few weeks it will no longer work.

It is great stuff in the right use, your Jeep seats are not it.

Just Rhino Line the seats. The benefits would be water proof, last a LONG time, and you would not need seat belts since you would be basically Velcro'd to the truck...

Get neoprene seat covers if you want it to be completely waterproof. Other than that it'll always get wet either over time or as soon as it rains.
