Wet Okole Truck Seat Covers

Let’s face it – over the lifetime of your truck, chances are good that you’ll damage your seats. A lot of this is going to be unintentional – the occasional dropped cup of coffee, the mud during a surprise rain storm, or even the inevitable wear and tear on seat bolsters from climbing in and out of your truck. Of course, there is also the natural dirt and debris that finds it’s way into your truck as a normal consequence of not living in an hermetically-sealed bubble. This is doubly true if you introduce kids into the equation.
The tried and true solution to dealing with worn seats (or protecting new seats) is to install seat covers. For a large number of drivers, mention of the term “seat covers” evokes images of cheesy Hawaiian flower designs or ugly brown furry jobs held on with elastics that snake across the back of the seat. While those options might have been unavoidable in the 1970’s, modern seat covers have benefited from a quantum leap in both style and design.
In fact, seat covers aren’t just for covering up past mistakes anymore, they are also capable of protecting your seats from damage before it happens. Wet Okole seat covers are a perfect example of a premium-quality seat cover. They’re designed to be placed on your truck’s seats whenever you know that there is a chance you are going to have to sit inside your vehicle either soaking wet, covered in mud or grease, or maybe even both. The Wet Okole seat covers are made of neoprene rubber that also features a nylon coating, which means that they are not only waterproof, but they also resist fading as a result of sun exposure and the buildup of dirt. Think of it like a wetsuit for your seats.
Unlike the seat covers you might find at the local Wally Mart, these Okole seat covers won’t bunch up, tear, or sag. They’re custom fitted to your ride and they don’t look half bad either…they’re actually quite nice.
The Okole covers can be ordered in a wide variety of colors and styles, which makes it easy to either match them to the interior of your truck or create a unique look that really sets off your stock color package. You can even order wild patterns (let’s here it for camo seat covers!). If desired, you can also install headrest, armrest and seat belt riser covers along with the standard seat cover to make certain you’re protected and/or really deck-out the interior.
Install is pretty simple – everything attaches with easy to use Velcro fasteners, so there’s no need to fight with elastics or remove the seat from its mounting points. Once the covers start to get a little dirty themselves, they can be removed and hand washed with little difficulty.
Wet Okole seat covers (about $270 for custom fitted covers in almost any color or pattern) are the perfect addition for anyone looking to keep their Tundra’s interior shiny and fresh.
Did we mention they’re a big hit at the beach too?

NICE PAIR – seat covers that is?
Looks like a tight fit – seat covers that is – which is good – seat covers that is?
Back to reality, I called up wet okole and asked them to send me free swatch samples of dark green, green, and charcoal since with black interior with dark green tundra, I cannot decide. The lady over the phone said no problem, they will send them out to me since once you order, you cannot return them for a refund unless a mfg. flaw, not because you ordered the wrong color which makes sense. The black fabric on the seats they do not have a sample of and they said simply turn the swatch over on any of those 3 colors and it will be the same black color as black would be if you ordered black color. For the price at only 235 bucks for both front bucket seats and around 260 for the rear split bench seat, it is a pretty good deal and is a cheap insurance to avoid stains and also to set off the interior of the truck a little in color especially since either light gray or all black interior on the monster tundra is almost too much of one color in my opinion.
I had these in my FJ Cruiser and loved them. Great with the dogs. Took some time getting the correct arm rest covers, but I had ordered through a third party which I do not recommend. And for the price you can’t beat it. I mean just look at the pic, they fit so well….
I was going to try leather seat covers but a lot are not made with 100% leather so why bother? I sometimes transport the dogs inside the cab and pet hair is a pain plus animals are just dirty. At this point I want something that looks neat but can be removed and washed easily. So, glad to hear that Okole isn’t a bad product and will consider it now. Thanks for the article, J!
Does SHE come with the cover to, uh, “install them”. I need a cold shower now.
TXTee – You bet. Sorry you had to read through all the sophomoric comments about the girl and the seat cover. I take full responsibility. 🙂
For the pic or the comments? “Cause both were awesome. HA HA HA
I almost expected the pic to contain a link to Okole’s site….LOL since most guy’s pointer probably landed somewhere right around there. Mouse pointer!
Worth mentioning is that in Hawaiian, “Okole” means “rear end”. So in essence, “Wet Okole” translates to “Wet @$$”. And to stay in line with the sophomoric comments, that girl is hot.
DrBundy – No kidding – makes sense.
Jeremy – Yes.
