Wool Car Covers
This material is based on reviews of car owners about car covers
Do we need covers at all?
Many prefer to ride without them. It is believed that any covers look worse than the native salon. Especially if the car is new. And you can only wear them then to hide the scuffs and the unattractive look of the cabin. That is, if the cabin has come to an end, then beautiful covers will help you. Covers are needed when you often carry children and animals in a car. Also, if you have the habit of eating in the cabin, carry dirty things, drive in working dirty clothes.
Another plus covers – they can adjust the uncomfortable seat with special inserts . And the problem of osteochondrosis does not threaten you.
What is better to order or buy ready-made? Buy ready cheaper. But it will look better, of course, custom-made.
If you are going to buy ready-made covers, you need to know not only the full name of your car, but also the interior equipment, year of manufacture. For this information, the seller will be able to pick up “native” covers that fit exactly on the seats of your car.
What is better to buy, full covers or seat covers (“T-shirts”)?
Seat covers (“T-shirts”) are inferior to the covers in some positions. First of all, because they are worse kept on the seats and do not protect the upholstery from pollution. Covers also fit snugly to the seat and back. But “T-shirts” are easily removed, cheap, very simple. Very comfortable: when you need (you carry a child), put it on, and when not needed, quickly removed.
In general, if funds allow, it is best to have more than one set of covers. To be both for summer and for winter. And what materials for covers is better to choose, see below.
Pros: you can choose different colors. Easy to wash. Absorb moisture. Cheap. Plush and tapestry more wear-resistant. Synthetic look good, perfectly stretched, do not crumple and do not go astray. Covers of flock: perfectly cleaned and washed, paint and appearance does not fade, does not fade, not static, they do not sweat.
Cons: Tissue covers of some fabrics are knocked down, crumpled. Synthetic covers fight with current and do not absorb moisture (hence, sitting on them, you sweat), quickly lose their shape, because the synthetic stretches, they crawl away at the seams, they have torn edges and tightening gum, there are inhibitions.
Pros: Do not slip. Pleasant to the touch. Sit on them comfortably. Do not melt when inhaled.
Cons: After some time of operation, the pile gets off. The fabric folds into folds, which looks unattractive. Often it will be necessary to vacuum the interior, as it is very collect dust. Hair and debris stick to the velor surface. Clean is not so easy. After washing, the covers can sit down.
Pros: Large selection of colors. If you are carrying animals, it is easy to clean the cabin. They are enough for a long time, are inexpensive.
Cons: The material does not breathe, it is very hot in the heat and dubeet in the cold. “In the winter like a tree, in the summer it is all soapy.” They do not let in moisture (when you sit on them, the skin sweats)
Pros: Soft. Pleasant to the touch. Easy to clean, easy to clean with special wipes. Look expensive and respectable. The skin breathes. Hypoallergenic.
Cons: skin requires careful handling, otherwise it can be easily scratched. Expensive.
Ecoskin is a quality substitute for natural leather.
Pros: Excellent imitation of genuine leather. There are micropores that allow eco-skin to breathe. Ecoskin does not pass water. But the breathability of eco-leather is much higher than that of genuine leather. High wear resistance (resistance to abrasion, to rupture, to creases). Good frost resistance. Pleasant to the touch. Hypoallergenic. Odorless. Eco-friendly. Are cheaper than genuine leather.
Faux Suede Covers
Pros: Velvety, soft, pleasant to the touch. Durable.
Pros: A good ride in the cold, warm. Respectable.
Cons: Collect dust, dirt and easily get dirty. Expensive, but artificial fur is a worthy alternative to natural material. With time, bald spots are formed. Moth may start. In the summer it is hot on them.
If you are going to buy covers
Do they have special cuts for airbags, so that in the event of an accident, the covers do not interfere with the disclosure;
Are there openings for armrests and headrests. Otherwise you will not be able to wear seat covers.
And more wishes for the covers: foam lining (it keeps the shape), edging (more attractive type of covers), side and lumbar supports (back will be more comfortable), pockets on the back of the front seats (you can put the right things, it is very convenient).
