    I'm thinking about getting leather added to my truck from Katzkin. My main reasons are that they have lots of good reviews and I've heard you don't have to do hardly anything to take care of them. Katzkin toutes that on their website: https://katzkin.com/leather-care/

    However, I haven't looked into any other leather companies or simply using leather seat covers.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on Katzkin vs other companies or leather seat covers?

    Katzkin replaces your stock cloth.
    Clazzio goes over your stock cloth.

    Are you saying you're for Katzkin or for Clazzio?

    Do you want seat covers or new upholstery? As well as how much you're willing to pay. Also, you can add seat heaters with Katzkin, but I'm unsure about Clazzio.

    Heaters are an option on both. It’s about how much you want to spend and if you want covers or new upholstery

    Katzkins are the way to go if you're keeping the vehicle for a few years or more.. I installed mine myself, takes a day, and they look great

    Clazzios look great for covers, being covers they cause the seats to lose a little definition in the bolsters. But certainly don’t look like covers in any other way. Katzkins will look a little tighter if you will. I enjoy my clazzios, no complaints. You’ll hear the same from katzkin people.

    I’ve not had experience with either. I think it comes down to cost. From pictures I’ve seen, katzkin look amazing, clazzios look awesome as well, just like others have stated, cause the seat to lose a little definition.

    katzkin is my personal preference. I’ve had them for about two years now and no issues...even with my dog and his heavy ass front paws.

    no experience with either but plan to get some katzskins they have been around forever. I was going to put them on a car 20 years ago before I sold it.

    something about a full replacement I like better then just covers
