Good info. Time to start saving up for the WO seatcovers.

Anybody got any suggestions for a seat cover for the heated leather seats on a 2013 Impreza? I know Wet Okole was mentioned but they are very pricey. Anything decent in the $40 range?

Just use a towel if you're going to be that cheap.

I bought some rear seat back protectors at baby's r us. I'll look for the box to give you a brand name. It was about 20 bucks for a pair. They hang on the head rest and are attached with an elastic loop on the bottom. They also make an oversized pad for the car seat that includes a small soft sided "box" that Velcros to the pad off to the side for the little nipper to keep stuff in.

A quick search shows many options in the $40-$60 range. It's not being "cheap", just not needing something super quality. I'm just wondering if anybody has any recommendations in this range. I just need covers for the two front seats.

Reviving this thread. I'm sure many more have Wet Okoles by this time. How is everyone liking them? Do you think they're worth it?

How's the material feel? Still comfortable? Does it seem durable?

X2, I'm thinking about Wet okoles as well, my concern is the fit. I want something that fits like it was factory, especially if its over $500 for it.

Still working well on our car. Still fits snug, no wrinkles or bunching up and seems plenty comfortable. You do have to remember to turn off the heated seats on a hot day. I do wish they had an idiot light or something for the heated seats. I drove out for a hike in the mountains at the crack of dawn, when it was cold. It was hot by the time I drove home....seats seemed overly warm... D'oh....helps to turn them OFF. Can't blame the covers for that.

Do the heaters still work well through the covers?

Does that mean the Wet Okoles insulate the seat too much? Do you not notice that the heated seats are on?

That concerns me in two ways. One, it would suck to have heated seats that you can't even really use. And two, I feel like it could be a potential issue if you have a heating element turned on and the heat is bottled up.

I've had wet okoles on my car for about 4 months now and they are holding up great. Look at it this way.....it's about 500 bucks cheaper than the oem leather option. My factory seats were getting tore up fast after a two months of ownership. I had to do something and don't regret my purchase at all. Front and back seat protection is a must if you have kids or pets.

I got Katzkin leather covers. They are not really covers since you remove the stock cloth and replace with these. Full leather and probably the nicest leather car seats i have sat in. Most oem leather seats are a leather and vinyl combo. The Katzkin's are nice thick soft leather. Since the only two options in the car I wanted was Leather and a sunroof, I had the dealer install both on my Pearl white base with CVT. Cost was $2400.00 for everything ($1200.00 each) and I am financing it with the car so it is not a large hit all at once. At 1.9% fin it is not much more per month either and it really dresses up the car. IMO the base cloth seats sucks! I will snap some pics tomorrow if anyone is interested.

Ordered a set of Wet Okoles for the front about a week ago. Hopefully they'll be here within another two weeks.

You will not be disappointed with the look, feel and overall quality of your seat covers.

Can't comment about WO's on subi's but I've run them on two wranglers that spent most summers topless. They held up well and when I washed them I did use the WO detergent cleaning stuff. They lasted 10 years and were the pattern ones. I have not noticed any real wear on my stock cloth yet but then I only get in and out twice a day. I'd like to see someones WO's installed.

Put on the Wet Okoles this evening. They're fairly nice, though I'm not so sure they were worth even close to the cost to me.

I'm a little disappointed that they didn't factor in the adjustment lever on the driver's seat. They also fit a little more loose than I expected, and I would expect such a highly raved about product to have a longer warranty period than 90 days.

If you aren't satisfied, send them back. I love mine and think they are a perfect fit and function.
