Best Seat Covers for Hot Temps?

Not really for me but my wife.

She wants a seat cover that doesn't look tactical and provides the most relief from leather seats during the summer in AZ.

What are your suggestions on brands and materials?

I just put a set of Trek Armor covers on my front seats. The fit was a lot better than I expected. The material feels like a tough nylon or blended fabric, its definitely rugged. I got Black/Black, cant tell you yet how good it is a temp resistance, it hasnt really gotten hot yet. I feel like it should be considerably better than a fabric like the wet-suit type covers at not getting too hot.

I support the military, fiscal responsibility, Hemp, legalization of Marijuana over 21, smaller government and the Bill of Rights.

Anyone know what the typical turnaround time is these?

Wife wants them here yesterday! Honestly, just more curious than anything.

Who'd you order them from? Probably depends a lot on how 'customized' you made yours. Your vendor can probably give you a better idea than us unfortunately :/

Went with Trek Amour and ordered directly from them.

As mentioned, just curious (and excited). I don't expect them this week or even next being as that I ordered them Friday night. Nothing custom unless each set of covers is built when ordered.

Turn around depends on if you want custom threads or not. Most of my custom thread shipments have taken about 4-6 weeks. The standard sets typically take <2 weeks. Regardless...they are worth the wait...they are the best covers there are, IMO.

Thank You. I'm sure they are worth the wait.

I went with TrekArmor in Coyote. Not as hot as the stock seats in grey after sitting in the sun for a while. After about half of a year of being doorless the seat colors faded a bit in some spots. I recommend using UV fabric spray.

Good Point. I ordered Coyote with the black inside. I'll look into getting some UV spray.
