    My cloth seats are in great shape, I just want to keep them that way.

    I went with CoverKing cordura seat covers in charcoal. Relatively inexpensive, durable, and don't get crazy hot in the sun.

    They're kinda difficult to install, aren't very sexy, and will wrinkle if installed incorrectly. That's where neoprene seat covers shine. I was worried that sitting on wetsuit material would be uncomfortable when dealing with VA summertime weather, so I went with the material I know.

    I purchased these on EBay a few months ago for $110. They fit really well and seem like they will be durable. Seller is Alex Zayas

    Are those bad for hot weather? They seem to be pretty popular here.

    I have Wet Okole and I love the fit and look. I have a had them a couple years now. Idk if it’s just me but I definitely get a sweaty back sitting in them. I also live here in Hawaii where it’s about 80° year round. Nothing compared to that Florida heat.

    I run full black Wet Okole's in Hawaii's weather. When it's blazing hot outside, the seats don't get as hot as you'd think (insulating properties), but you could try lighter color options if it concerns you. It definitely won't burn your skin like leather or vinyl would. I just wouldn't go too light since stains or discoloring is more visible. I machine wash mines very seldom, but it's cleans up good. I personally think it's a good option in sunny weather.

    Terrible. You’ll sweat through the seat in minutes. Hawaii is the North Pole compared to Florida.
