    I hope this is the right place to post....

    I bought a set of Bartact seat covers to replace the cheap neoprene covers in my Jeep and thought these are one of the best covers I've ever tried. Also it was hard to pass on how tacticool they were with all the MOLLE straps and zippered pockets.

    Now just last week they posted up about having Tacoma Gen2 covers so i jumped on them, and just like in the jeep they're made of a durable waterproof nylon fabric and well engineered to fit snug over the factory seats. The install was pretty straight forward and came with descent instructions.
    Anyone looking into getting seats covers, i highly recommend Bartact. They told me the rear DC seat covers should be out soon.

    Yes I'd like to know as well! These look like they could be my next covers. I had the coverking balistic nylon covers but I didn't like the fit and the backing on them broke down and flaked apart on me. These covers check a lot of boxes for me!

    Bummer they took so long to put these out. I've already got Wet Okoles but would've gone with these if they had been in production then.

    Not a fan of Coverkings molle seats due to their iteration of what they classify as cordura.

    They're fit snug. Will require some muscles and stuffing and pulling to get these on. The Bartact cover material isn't as stretchy as neoprene

    I have the SR5 seats with the pass side fold down and they fit great. You can ask for Matt at Bartact about the TRD seats that they just did.

    Ok so I finally installed my seat covers. I ordered directly from Bartact, non-trd seat covers, but they accidentally sent trd covers. They quickly remedied the mixup and I had my non-trd covers with a return label for the wrong covers very quickly. I REALLY like these seat covers. The fit is really snug (these take a little effort to install). Sliding your butt in and out is a non issue as well. The material doesn't grip too hard on my jeans or other clothes. I'm planning on installing seat heaters eventually in the seat and the back rest down the line which brings me to my only potential issue (which is probably a non-issue in reality). The seatback is so snug it spaces itself off the 2 protruding edges of the back itself so it might not hold up the seat heater in place. But anyways, here's some pictures of the covers. Really high quality stuff

    Very well. I have 2 big doodles that ride in the back and I have No complaints. It was definitely more rugged feeling than the okeles, which I liked. Also, I sweat a lot lest on the Bartacts.

    If you get the grey, post photos! I would tend to go solid black because on all other covers 2 two tone tends to look cheap in my opinion.
