In the market for seat covers for my truck. Google revealed a lot of options...a lot more than I expected. I have done some reading but would be interested if anyone here has any real world experience with them? What brands/style do you have and would you purchase them again? Thanks...

Marathon seat covers!!!! I ordered mine 5 years ago best purchase I've made besides the truck itself. They custom make them to fit your seats. They cost a little more but worth every penny

Xís2 Iíve had them for 4 years now probably the best investment I made for my truck. Mine has faded a little on the driverís seat but other than that they are great . I think it took 6 weeks when I ordered mine because they built them when you order them .

I run Ruff Tuff seat covers on my work truck. I'm in and out of my pickup 70 to 80 times a day. They are the only covers I have found that will put up with the daily crawling in and out abuse.

I donít know anything about the above mentioned seat covers but I have had a good experience with Cover Craft seat covers. I have them in one of my Tahoeís and in my pickup.

I purchased a set of Carhart seat covers for my 2016 Canyon about 6 months from new.

They still look great and are easy to slide in. I'm not sure of the link information.

Try this site. Maybe the same as above.

Are they compatible with heated seats? And side airbags?

I have had Sportsman Camo Covers on three different trucks. They are awesome. From everything I have seen I would say they are equivalent to Marathon. They have an easy to use website so I would compare prices between the two for your make/model. They are expensive but worth every penny IMO.

Marathons have been great for me. You'll catch them on sale now and then.

I paid 600 and some change for the marathons that I got and that was on a crew cab with the arm rest and head rest.
