Seat fabric wearing through / seat cover question

So my 2010 with 60k miles ... driver side seat fabric is pulling apart at the seam, I was gonna stitch it up but the fabric is so threadbare just touching it causes it to rip further (I'm disgusted, thanks chrysler). Anyway, has anyone put in seat covers that they would recommend?

Trek Armor, hands down the best cover I have ever used, and the coustomer service cant be beat. Add that to it being made in the good ol USA and its a winning combination all the way around. They even include a 3 year warranty IIRC

My 07 wore through on the bolster from my fat ass sliding over it.
I bought some used wet okoles off eBay about a year ago for almost nothing and have been happy with them.
Dunno about $600 happy if I had to buy em new, but definitely $26 happy

The Trek Armor seat covers seem great, just beware of the butt/back sweat factor with any neoprene cover. I am using the Wet Okloe covers, and long drives, or hot days with the top off can be miserable.
I wish someone would have warned me first.

The Treks arent neoprene, more along the lines of a ballistic nylon, and actually breathe very well so you have minimal butt/back sweat issues.

My front seats were fully re-upholstered with saddle leather in Old Mexico for slightly under $700.00; rear seat and all carpet removed which now adorn a JK in San Luis Potosi.

The Trek and the Iggees both look good but the iggees are 100 less and I like the leather look they have. Anyone have experience with either one of those?
