3 Custom Car Seat Cover Styles For Lovers of The Great Outdoors

Australians love the great outdoors. Whether it's heading to the beach, doing some exercise in a beautiful national park, or heading off-road for a four-wheel drive adventure, most weekends see a huge number of people heading off to enjoy what the country has to offer. Unfortunately, all of these outdoor activities can mean that your car seats end up in a less than pristine state.

Car seat covers are a popular choice for protecting seats; they ensure that your car is in mint condition when it's time to sell. Although there are a many off-the-shelf car seat covers available, for a really good fit and high functionality, the best option is to get custom fit seat covers. Here are three fantastic custom car seat covers styles which are perfect for lovers of the great outdoors.

1. Mesh

If you're a fitness fan, then your outdoor adventures may result in you working up a sweat. However, sweat can permanently stain most car seat fabrics and also result in a fairly unpleasant smell over time. Custom made mesh seat covers are the perfect solution.

Sporting thick, moisture-resistant foam padding, these covers also feature a breathable mesh over layer. This not only protects your car seats, it will also help you to feel cooler and more comfortable after an intense activity.

2. Neoprene

If your outdoor activity of choice involves water, then your car seats may become water logged on occasion. As anyone who has inadvertently left the window down during a rainy spell can tell you, this can cause a musty odour and a build-up of mould or mildew deep within the seat's upholstery.

Neoprene car seat covers will prevent these issues. Made from the same material as wetsuits, these seat covers repel water and keep your car seats protected and dry. They're ideal for surfers, fishermen, or those who like to hit the beaches in their four-wheel-drives.

3. Poly canvas

If you're weekends normally involve heading off the beaten track, then mud and water may be a common feature on your car seats. They may be splashed into your vehicle as you navigate the terrain or you may get it on your seats from your dirty clothing.

Heavy-duty poly canvas seat covers are the ideal choice for this type of adventure. Poly canvas is not only tough, it's also waterproof, protecting your seats from anything that Mother Nature might throw at them. You can also request foam under layer which will help to make bumpy rides more comfortable.

Custom-made car seat covers are a practical addition to your vehicle if you're a regular outdoor adventurer. They're also a great investment and will keep your seats in top condition for many years to come.
