    Are the WO really any better? They're both neoprene and both expensive. But the WO are more expensive.

    Anyone?

    There's a group buy going on right now that make the WO almost the same price. I've never seen the Coverkings so I can't chime in.

    Thanks. Saw the GB on those. Still comes to $460 for comparably optioned covers WO vs. Coverkings.

    Stock for now
    There was a review recently on someone who purchased the Coverkings and returned them. I think it had something to do with the charcoal inserts not matching the interior to his liking. Others say the advantage is you can return anything to costco. Even as a costco member I am still going to buy another set of Wet Okoles.

    They have been in my last 3 trucks. My last set saw 4+yrs of lots of coffee spills & muddy dog prints & when taking off the to trade in the seats underneath looked brand new. The only complaint I had with this set was the tan inserts did fade greenish even with using the UV protectant. The black sides were fine so for my tundra I am buying black on black in this GB. I have to sign up for it.

    I've had WO's on two Tacomas, a Tundra and my Mustang GT. All have seen rough use and held up extremely well. Soon as I get some more squirrel money put back I'll have a set on my current Tacoma. WO's are the best IMHO. Buy once, cry once.

    Anyone has had both? I've had the Coverkings and they were fine. However, they did fade (Hawaiian print) after only about 6 months of mostly shaded use (though I did have a sunroof).

    I'm just trying to justify to myself to pay the price difference of about $100 even after the GB savings for comparably optioned CKs. I mean are the WOs really worth $100 more? How much better is their neoprene? I wonder...

    Sweating? That is the nature of neoprene. Because it's waterproof, it tends not to breathe as well as natural material.

    Coverkings are $350 shipped for front/rear set with 2 seat pockets. Can return for full refund if fading or sell car.

    GB Price: WO's are $441 shipped front/rear set, 2 seat pockets. Sell for some money back if needed in the future.

    $90 price difference.

    Can someone who's had both chime in?

    I've have black Cover Kings in my truck for over a year and no fading yet. They fit great and I'd buy them again.
