    Don't want no expensive, pretty boy, wet okole seat covers...I often climb into the truck covered in fish guts/bait/blood and I want a durable , functional seat cover that fits well and that I can just throw in the washer when I need to...

    I saw some suggestions on this boating & fishing forum a while back-but Forgot the name of the covers mentioned...

    Any help appreciated ...thanks

    But we okole are the best seat covers around.

    If you want a cheap way, I'd suggest 55gallon trash bags and just put them over your seats.. That way you don't have to clean the covers.

    I'd assume it isn't hate for wet okoles- but more just the price.

    I will also say that taking them off to wash them is a PITA

    Heck, isn't that what the dealerships do when you take it in for service? If it's good enough to protect from grease, it should be good enough for fish innards. Cheap and disposable! And no fishy smell after sitting in the sun all day...

    I used to have Sportsman seat covers in my old truck, they were around two hundred and very durable.
