    I don't own either, but I plan on getting some WO cause there water resistant. Good for those raining days.

    I own WO, but have never seen GT's.

    Assuming we're talking about the GT Neoprene, WO does look to have a lot more options for decals, pockets, and colors. Price being about the same, I still think I'd have stayed with the WO.

    I have GT covers in my truck - not neo just plain fabric. Good fit, well made, lots of pockets to stuff crap in, color matched perfectly to the rest of the interior. Ordered mine through www.toyotapartsstore.com and they were delivered fast, competitive prices too.

    I have Cover King neoprene seat covers and they are awesome. I can't imagine WO's being much better.

    Those wet okoles really do look sweet. I had a pair in my truck when I bought it in Washington State, but then I moved down to Arizona and the sun destroyed them. Now they're all brittle and fadded, and only after having them a year. I would buy another set but not here in Arizona.... I would need seat covers for my wet okoles if that were the case.... Also, I noticed that they stained easy. Like after working out and getting into the car, or even walking from store to my truck in the rain, after they dried, they stained. Maybe I just wasn't taking care of them though... Who knows.

    I have Coverkings also. For the price they're great, the only negative compared with WO is the headrest doesn't fit as slick looking. I got mine from Costco, but they had stopped selling them for a while. Looks like they're back now:

    I don't know anything about GT but i have Wet Okoles and i love them. My brothers and i ride bikes all the time and get muddy and i don't have to worry about sitting in my seats with these covers because they are water proof.
