Seat Covers -- Are They Worth It?
As you window shop around for awesome accessories for your UTV, you’ve probably stumbled across seat covers. Sure they look nice, but do you really need seat covers?
Are seat covers worth it? Here are a few things you might not have considered when it comes to seat covers that may help you make up your mind.
Keep Seats Clean and Dry
No one likes sitting down on a dirty seat, even if you’re out on your UTV. One of the biggest advantages of having a seat cover is that it will keep your seats clean and dry. Rather than getting your actual seat soaked or muddy, your seat cover will take the brunt of the dirtying. This will preserve your seats, making them stay in better condition longer which will ultimately leave to a longer seat life.
Easy To Clean
Since your seat covers will now be taking the brunt of the wear and tear, how will you keep them clean so that you aren’t sitting in filth? Fortunately, most seat covers are easily removed and machine washable so you can just throw them in with your laundry and have clean seats for your next adventure.
Protection From The Elements
Your seat cover not only keeps your seats clean and dry from debris that may be kicked up during a particularly gnarly ride, but it will keep your seats protected from the elements too. UV rays can be extremely damaging to your seats. Think about your outdoor furniture… as it sits outside in the sun, the UV rays begin to fade and even weaken fabric. Many seat covers completely block out UV rays so that your seats will stay as nice as possible for as long as possible. Water can also be extremely damaging to your seats, but with waterproof seat covers, you won’t have to worry about mold growth, or rotting fabric no matter how much rain you’re riding in.
Give New Life To Old Seats
If you’ve had a UTV for several years and already seen the damaging effects of UV rays, rain, snow, and normal wear and tear, you may be wondering how you can restore your seats. Getting seats replaced is probably out of the question, and reupholstering just doesn’t seem worth it for an outdoor toy. You can easily give new life to old seats by slipping on a seat cover and covering up those cracked, faded, or ripped seats with new, smooth, comfortable covers.
Besides being practical, many seat covers have some added benefits like foam inserts. This means you’ll get some added comfort and luxury that you wouldn’t otherwise have with your traditional seats.
Lots of Style Options
Of course, what’s functionality and comfort without a little style? As you shop for a seat cover that can block the sun and water while giving you a little extra padding to sit on, don’t forget to shop around for exactly the type of color and pattern option you want in a seat cover.
