Sweating in Vinyl Seats

Love the durability and look of the vinyl(?) Bestop seats one of the PO installed but I'm tired of sweat soaked pants and shirts where I'm pressed against them. Occurs even on cool mornings. Anyone who's had the same issue and found a decent solution besides new seats? Looking at one of the seat towels or the beaded seat covers like taxi drivers use. Tried driving around with a towel on the seat and it helped just a little.

Awe yes, nothing like showing up to work with a serious case of Swamp Azz
I too would like to find a solution. I have the original vinyl CJ seats and there's no way I'm getting rid of them. I might go with some seat covers, but those things are so expensive.....

My wife bought two heavy duty beach towels and some elastic, found a pattern on the internet, and is making us some. All for about $25.

Looking to buy some seats soon. Would you go black denim if you were buying again? Looking at Trail Max seats.

Went by Autozone and picked up one of the beaded covers for $20. Wish it was longer/bigger and fit to the seat better. Took a short drive and it made a big difference. I could feel air hitting my back and butt. It also makes it easier to move around to adjust after sitting for a while. Problem is it makes it look a little hoosier.

Didn't like the beaded seat after a while so I got a woven mesh pad instead. It doesn't allow as much air to pass through but I like it a lot more. I don't sweat at all like I did before. Now that it's cooler in the morning, I do feel the air flowing through to my back.

Neoprene. Wasn't cheap, but here in the sweat zone, they work well.
