Who Makes The Best Seat Covers?

The title sums it up. I want to get some seat covers for my 2011 Lariat that are custom fit that are comfortableand will protect and not harm the leather.

What are your suggestions guys?

Per the owners manual:

"WARNING: Do not use accessory seat covers. The use of
accessory seat covers may prevent the deployment of the side
airbags and increase the risk of injury in an accident."

I'm in the same boat. I have a 11F250 XL regular cab I use for the farm and need to get a cover. Something I can throw in the wash a couple times a year that won't let the grease, dirt, ect penetrate through to the seat. I won't something that is somewhat comfortable to and looks half ways decent and really would prefer something that covers the armrest to. I'm more wondering which material to use it seems like they all offer several different types of fabric. NAHFWT what type of coverking do you get.

Ford F250 Standard Color Seat Covers - Wet Okole Hawaii
__________________

My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.

First off, we do not have 100% leather seats, sides and some of the back are vinyl. Squeeze the seams and you can tell by the texture. No matter though, It's the industry standard..lol. I had mine custom made and also installed by my buddy who is a upholsterer. He told me straight off, you will ruin these seats if you do not install them properly and you cannot take them off because they get hogtied on so the material doesn't rub on the leather. This web site sends all over the world, go through it, they ask questions i wouldn't have thought of. ProSeatCovers - Custom Fit Seat Covers for Cars and Trucks

I have wet okole in the rears only (2 labs), but I think you can get them with provisions for the side airbags in the fronts. Love the wet okoles though. Black with silver/gray centers match the fronts pretty well.

without a doubt, my vote is for Marathon seatcovers out of Montana
I have now owned two sets of custom fit, hand-made in the USA and
will put them on every truck i ever own again- you will not be disappointed
I covered up the king ranch seats on my previous 08 and when i traded to the 11, even those saddle leather seats showed no sign of wear at all.
Great people to work with and great customer service

True, the covers that are offered on Clazzio Leather Seat Covers for Trucks - Custom - FREE SHIPPING are manufactured to work with the factory air bags - the stitching on the side where the air bags deploy is thinner to allow for the air bags to deploy correctly. There's plenty of videos on YouTube about this also.

Additionally, our seat covers are fully measured specifically for your application - check out the site to see all of the models offered.
