Wet Okole seat covers

Has anyone bought a set of these for their TJ? They look nice but are a little pricy. Before I buy them I would like some feedback about how well they fit/hold up/ feel. Thanks guys!

I'm thinking I will be getting tan to match my interior. What color were the ones you had that faded? I'm hoping that the fading won't be a problem with a lighter color.

I prefer the cheap ones from Wally World personally. Those are made of neoprene, same stuff wetsuits are made of and I dont stay dry in mine when I dive and it takes about an hour or 2 to dry off. Now think of the cloth in your seats. They will hold more water than your body does wich means longer to dry out. My el cheapos dry in about 10 minutes and seats are dry about 2 hours later. So for 2hr 10 minutes at $20 or about 4+ hours at $200.Not to mention if you rip them there goes your investment.

I lucked out, was gonig to get these and then met 2 guys in San antonio that had them, first ones were blue and they were faded to a wierd pale purple/blue color and the others were black the looked more grey, both after only a few months in the sun, plus both told me when they get wet it takes hours for them to dry out.

I had all three seats covered in my XJ, they were a perfect fit and looked awsome. It made my XJ smell like a wetsuite forever. If they got dirty i just took them off and washed them. The dog hair sticks like duck tape to them. They are WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. I did try others and they fit the best.
