Seat Covers?

Does anyone have any of the custom fit seat covers? If so, any pics? How do you like them? Worth it? How do they hold up? How was install?

I got a new Dodge Ram and am looking to protect the seats mainly from my dogs short fine hair which sticks in seat type fabric and is a pain to remove, as well as mud and dirt from hunting/cabin trips, ohh yeah and theres the sand at the beach.

I'm primarily looking at three brands, am I missing any?

https://www.marathonseatcovers.com/
https://www.headwatersseatcovers.com

Right now I'm leaning toward Head Water as they are a bit cheaper and have some more options.

Re: Seat Covers?

I really like the marathons on my ram! There on the back seats and fit much better than the hatchie bottoms on the front seats! Will buy another set!

Re: Seat Covers?

The gentleman that owns Head Waters worked for Marathon for years. Seem like a very similar product. I guess all of these have a crazy wait time too.

Thanks for the feedback.

The cabelas set covers with the lace up sides. Easy to install. I put them in my tree service trucks and they last if that tells you anything.

Re: Seat Covers?

I have the Cover King from Cabelas custom fit neopremes Mossy Oak breakup on my front seats and console of my Avalanche. I really live them and am going to get some for the back seat as well. Also have the custom dash cover in Mossy Oak from Cover king




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Seat Covers?

Hatchie bottom front seats: 7+ weeks to receive and fit perfect.

Hatchie bottom rear seats: 7+ weeks to receive and didn't fit at all, sent back: 7 more weeks to receive and once again didn't fit at all, digusted, so I sent them back (on their dime) and told them to refund my money...Went with marathon for the back seats and had them within 2-4 weeks and they were much cheaper and fit perfectly, and they matched the hatchie bottom fronts great!

Re: Seat Covers?

Marathon all the way.

Have had mone now for 4.5 years and look like new even after as many hunting seasons and many - many home improvement projects where I was dirty, sweaty, and dirty.....

They still retain the original color and are tight as the day i put them on. That even after a washing or two.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Re: Seat Covers?

Looks like I'm now leaning Marathon - anyone know if these things ever go on sale or if they run promotions?

Re: Seat Covers?

Went with the Marathon to cover the front and back seats in Max-4 camo. Site has a disclaimer that they cant promise delivery before Xmas. Oh well, now the wait.

Re: Seat Covers?

You have to wait for custom made seat covers because they don't make them until they are ordered. When I got mine from Cabelas they sent me covers or a different seating set up so I had to send them back and wait twice.
