Coverkings reviewed

I installed Coverking seat covers a month ago. I love how they fit and look, but I am not loving them lately. It has been 100 degrees for a few days straight and the neoprene makes my back ridiculously hot. Within a few minutes, the back of my shirt is drenched. Even with a towel over the seat back, I can feel the heat. They seem to be fine as long the temperature is 80 or so.

I have a bikini top, so that is not the issue. Neoprene is such a good insulator that it just cooks you.

First seat covers I had. They were great until they faded about 2 years later.

I hear you can get a better deal on Iggee's here

http://www.trailduty.com/advanced_se...gee+jk&x=0&y=0

I have black Iggee covers and even in 100F heat they are bearable. Super easy to clean, hard wearing, will not let water through, and fit well, although they do take a minute or two to install properly.

Thats 100% true! Before my Katskinz, I had Iggees and loved them. Trailduty was great to work with and got them to me in no time w/o any hassels.

That is interesting on the Coverkings.

I have them in our unlimited and it has been 90* + here with high, high humidity and I haven't noticed them being warm at all. Actually they are always cool to the touch when I get in the Jeep.

I even took the insulation off the hard top to make sure I was getting real world results.

I'm not saying you're wrong, just mentioning it for comparison value.

I think I'm going to try the Iggee ones on my two door for a direct comparison.

To me the Coverkings stay the same temp the seats used to be. When its 100 degrees out and you sit on the stock seats, your backs going to be damn sweaty. With the coverkings on, i dont see myself sweating anymore than usual, and I'd say it could be even less. Besides that, i like the extra cushioning of the covers.

It is the dog days like these that I wish I could take the cooled seats from the Grand Cherokee and put them in my Rubicon.

My Coverkings give me a nice case of swamp ass when it's hot out also - especially when wheeling at crawl speeds. I figure pretty much everything would give me swamp ass at that point.

This is true. Mine did the same thing, but nothing different from the iggees, katskinz and even stock covers Ive had before.

Why do you guys not use cotton canvas for seat covers? Brilliant stuff.

I just ordered a set of Iggees for my jeep this past weekend through trail duty!
