My issue is with the set of seat covers I got and the neosupreme material.

When doing anything requiring money you have to take a lot of things into consideration. You can buy $25 seat covers off the shelf at the auto part store or you can buy $1k seat covers. I've had a set from Auto Zone last me 2 years with minimal wear. I wouldn't say opting to save $150 on a product that should still fit my needs is "scimping." For the most part I agree that you should buy the best, but a lot of times we don't need the best and the money saved is better spent elsewhere. Especially if the "best" is purely based on opinion.

That makes me feel better, they get great reviews all over the place. Do you remember which ones you have? CR Neoprene? Neosupreme? Cloth?

Viper's right, definitely buy the Wet Okoles...not ukuleles I've had em 4 years (granted only 15k miles), but a lot of it was hop-in/hop-out on the trail. The driver seat started abrading where it faces the door, so I sent a pic to Wet Okole, they sent a new seat cover, free of charge. There was no fading, so the new piece matches the old ones perfectly (unlike my neoprene Warn cover that faded white & turned to dust in the colorado sun) They also sent me a stern letter reminding me there is nothing wrong with their seat cover, that they sent me a new one cause they were being nice. Whatever

So the product failed but Wet Uckalailees stepped in and offered to replace the part for free.

This is exactly what Coverking offered me, a free replacement for any piece that I was not happy with. But it didn't come with a stern letter.

The more I read about Wet Ukalaylays failing the better the Coverkings at >$50 savings look.

Hahahaha, here's how I see it: they shipped youa shoddy product that you've never been happy with, and now it's uncertain whether the manufacturer will stand behind their product, but it'll cost you money and time to find out.

Whereas, I bought a premium product that looks and functions like new after years of trouble-free use, while my cosmetic issue was replaced free of charge, without question, well outside the warranty period. I probably deserved the stern letter, because i suggested I would tell all the TTORA peeps if they didn't help me out

Seriously, my Wet Okoles are as tight and sharp-looking as new. The seat cushioning in them is so buoyant that I get compliments on it, I shit you not. Chicks' panties fall right off when they see my seat covers

Dude, you're gonna have to spend $50 to send your stuff back to the mfr anyway, right? Those pics you posted suggest shoddy craftsmanship and faulty engineering. I think it's unacceptable, and you should get a refund from Coverking. Or, like, a free keychain, or a coupon for Arby's or something

I hope it works out, brutha

They are just the Neoprene ones I think. I paid around 180 for them I believe and really like the product.

I clean them about every six months with wetsuit shampoo, while still on the seats. Takes about 20minutes total. Still look brand new after 3 years and I hunt, fish, bike, and live out of the truck a lot.

New Neoprene seat covers came in today and I installed them tonight. They fit better, easier to install than the Neosupreme. The thickness is the same but you can definitely feel the quality difference of the Neoprene vs. the Neosupreme.

As far as looks go, they look the same. The neoprene does look much better put together tho. We'll see.

So "neosupreme" is not actually neoprene? That's either really good marketing by Coverking, or really deceptive hahaha... Well, glad the new ones fit better already. Enjoy!

Neosupreme is a term used by several seat cover companies, some do call it something other than Neosupreme. But no, it is not Neoprene. That's not the issue here tho, they do a great job of letting you know you are not buying true CR grade Neoprene.
