"I removed my truck's seat to make installation much easier. Within 7 months, the first tears appeared. After one year, the cover was falling apart all over, not just on the driver's side. Very poor quality material.
Spend a bit more for something that will last much longer.
Pros: Looks good at first, relatively easy to install
Cons: Deteriorates quickly and literally falls into shreds

Poor value
July 22, 2009
"This isn't the nice saddle blanket seat cover that you've seen elsewhere. Although it was indicated to fit a mini-pickup, it was much too wide (probably the proper width for a full-sized pickup). I had to take a tuck down the middle to make it fit. The back-side of the cover is made out of a cheap elastic material that quickly stretches out of shape and causes the cover to bunch in my back. The front "saddle blanket" material is a cheap imitation of the the better quality stuff. Within a couple of months it ripped. Don't waste your money."
Pros: It was brown.
Cons: Shoddy materials and poor fit.

Problematic installation, wears out quick

"The cover was a good fit and I liked the storage pouches for the front edge of the seat but I checked three different boxes over time and each of them directed me to tie the laces to the loops in the back of the seat top. None of the new covers had these loops sewn in as illustrated (though my old one did). The new ones only have a flimsy gauze like stretch piece of fabric to slip behind the seat back - as if it were a fitted mattress sheet - but this does not hold it in place and as soon as you sit on the seat the top rolls down. I had to use pins and paper clamps to hold it in place. If I had a seat with headrests it would have been better. Time for the maker to change the package to reflect reality and to fix this glitch. My old one also lasted over 10 years (even going through the clothes washer on gentle), the most recent one began to wear quickly and fter 2 years it had a hole in it."
Pros: good basic fit
Cons: does not conform to directions, hard to fit to seat back

A great product

"I bought this seat cover to fit my 1991 Toyota pickup. It was a bit too wide for my seat - the holes for the seat belts didn't line up until I simply folded over the cover in the middle (looks fine but would be better with a couple simple hand stitches to hold the fold in place.)
It may be a bit of a challenge to do but it is certainly easier to get it right if you remove the bench seat from your vehicle and place it on a workbench or saw horses to install the seat cover.
If you don't you will spend a very long time trying to get it right and the right amount of tension on the strings. (Install for me was 15 minutes to remove the seat and 30 minutes to install the seat cover.)
This is a great product that looks wonderful and I hope will last for many years."
Pros: Strong, solid construction
