Seat covers

Does anybody know which brand of seat covers fit the best. I have a yj and debating on which ones will fit my jeep the best. Ive been looking at coverking, rugged ridge,and a few others. All of the are the neoprene material

Neoprene is waterproof but soaks it up on the outside. So if you get them wet they can take awhile to dry. Wish I knew that before I bought mine.
That aside. I have legacy seat covers. Not sure if they are still in business. They are very nice and fit well. Beware though customer service was terrible and they took forever.
I would look into a canvas that would shed the water rather than absorb it like neoprene does.

Fishermen stopped using neoprene long ago because it doesn't breath and doesn't wick away moisture. I've sat on neoprene seats before and waddled in my own sweat.

I wish I would have seen this 2 weeks ago. I just ordered the cheap Smittybuilt Neoprene ones. I figure they'll do the job for now. I'm considering reuppolstering the seats with some sort of waterproof material. Anyone ever done that?

I work to support the habit...
