Default Custom Fit Seat Covers

I'm probably going to get a new (to me) truck real soon. I found a really nice deal on a 2017 Silverado 2500, but the only downfall is it has cloth seats. I'm looking for suggestions on waterproof/water resistant seat covers. Also, if there is anything to avoid out there that didn't fit well on your vehicle, let me know so I don't make the same mistake please. Thanks in advance!

I bought a set of cover kings from AutoAnything. They’re waterproof and super tough. No complaints yet. I also got them when they were on a 20% off sale

I have had two vehicles with the marathon seat covers. And I donít see how you could get anything better!

I have used marathons on the last few trucks and very happy with them. Take a few weeks to get them to you is only draw back.

Have not tried any other brands

how is install with the marathon seat covers? pretty simple, or is it better to have an upholstery shop put them on? do the seats have to be disassembled, or do you just throw the covers over the seats as they sit?

Was very happy with my Durafit covers. Went on easy and fit snug at a substantial lower cost than some.
I did have to swap out the center console piece because it was for a different model but wasn't a problem as they are local to me.

Its DIY, only have to pull headrests, but they are a tight fit. Its more than a 5 min job, but can do yourself

No, No, NO!!!! Wet okole seat covers are the best. You get what you pay for. And FYI "Okole" means "booty" in Hawaiian. lol

This! Really happy with mine I just installed. Similar to a neoprene and are comfortable and thick. Good price too and lots of colors.

I've been looking at marathon and wet okole. I like the extra storage/pocket customization available with marathon

Too me marathon look like seat cover and the wet okole look like custom seats. I went with wet okole when I bought my F150 back in 2012. I will be putting them on my new f250 also.
