    Hi all,

    Brand new here and have been spending the last couple days reading seat cover threads. I just picked up my first Tacoma, a 2011 double cab TRD Sport. Looking for seat covers and have read all the threads about the WO and the Costco Coverkings, but my question is for those that live in HOT climates like I do here in Phoenix. Are the neoprene covers simply too hot in the summer? If so, what are your alternatives?

    It seems that Endura might be a good alternative if the neoprene is too hot, but haven't found many reviews of different companies and how well they fit.

    Would love to hear from some of you hot weather folks.

    There must be someone that lives in the heat and has an opinion on seat covers?

    I use the WO. Here it is 80*F everyday in the winter and 85*F everyday in the summer. I love my seat covers. I don't really know of any other options that can take as much abuse as the WO and still look as good. Just my $0.02...

    I have RuffTuff seat covers. They'll make covers out of any material you want.

    Mine are clothe...and aren't any different than sitting on clothes seats. I can take them off and wash them.

    I've driven mine in hot weather (90's here sometimes in the summer) and they stay pretty comfortable. I have the Cover King seat covers and I'm really happy with them.

    Thanks for the comments so far. Still looking for opinions from folks where it gets into the 110 degree range and up.
