Seats covers TJ 03-06

What is your opinion/experience about seats covers for your 03-06 TJ?

I would like to get something that fit good, can be cleaned, resistant.. lasting for years.
Neoprene or fabric?.. I don't trust those leather covers.
Brand?

Smittybilt are cheaper than Rudge ridge.. any reason?

I've got some cheapo Dickies seat covers from Shucks and while they aren't super form fitting, they are tight enough and I'm out a whopping $25 if they fail in a year or two. These are heavy nylon seem pretty resistent to abrasive and spills and everything.

I've heard neoprene doesn't wear well if you drag your butt over it getting in and out.

I like the Cabelas trail gear seat covers, I've had them in a few vehicles. Pretty cheap.

Apparently neoprene is not waterproof, despite the advertisements. Also, black neoprene tends to fade to purple in a short amount of time.

Neoprene seat covers are really good at turning your back and butt into a swamp. I would avoid neoprene. I like bartact seat covers 10:1 over any others..

Neoprene covers are awful.

i have the rugged ridge front black neoprene seat covers.
im not a rugged ridge fan, but its what i could afford at the time.
they fit amazingly well, u can hardly tell it is a seat cover.
they have been on over 5 years, no tears or holes.
they are not waterproof, but they are fairly water resistant, and dry pretty quick.
no real wear at all, but they do fade to a dark grey pretty quick.
i am really surprised they have held up this well!

they are not the best stuff on the market, but there are worse options i bet?
i would like something better at some point.

Bartact seem to be amazing! https://www.bartact.com/collections/...ant=3942315077

Does anybody here have a personnal pic of that in his own Jeep?
Would like to see some other color (cannot see at the factory web site)
It seem to be not available on Ebay or Amazone.. is it only sell by the factory?

I will avoid neoprene, thanks for your explication
So Bartact for the top notch solution or Smittybilt for a not bad product and a better bang for the buck..

Hoping somes of your pics guys!

Given the durability, fit, and look of the Bestop seat covers I couldn't justify buying Bartac or equivalent.
