Capes and covers

Car seat covers and covers are needed to protect the factory upholstery, give the interior a neat look and ensure the comfort of the driver and passengers. Let’s see how they differ from each other.

Covers or capes?

Both of them do an excellent job with their functions – protecting the seats from dust and dirt. Therefore, there is no clear answer which is better. But there is still a slight difference between them.

The capes are designed in such a way that they cover only the upper part of the chairs. You can put them in a few seconds, and the size is universal. The same model is suitable for cars of different brands. The downside of the cape is that the seats are not completely closed, and it is not very firmly fixed.

T-shirt covers are another type of cape. It differs in that it completely covers the front of the seats. They are easy to install and do an excellent job of protecting against dirt. Also available in universal version.

Covers – cover the chair completely from all sides. They can change the interior of the cabin and in some cases significantly improve it. The first distinguishing feature of the covers is the presence of a thin layer of foam rubber, which keeps its shape and eliminates the formation of wrinkles. There are universal covers, but finding a model for your car brand is not a problem. Custom-fitted covers fit better and are often difficult to distinguish from factory upholstery.

So, let’s sum up. Capes and T-shirts are an economical option, often temporary. Covers are a more expensive option, but they also look accordingly.

Material for covers: what to choose?

The most popular fabrics from which covers are made are velor, jacquard, eco-leather, velveteen, alcantra or natural suede.

Genuine leather, eco-leather, Alcantara are very easy to care for, serve for a long time, look solid and respectable. These materials do not absorb dirt and odors, do not generate static electricity. With minimal care, they last several years. They don’t even need dry cleaning.

Fabric-based materials – velveteen, jacquard, velor. Very pleasant to the touch, but rather impractical. Quickly absorb odors, dirt, liquids. Need regular cleaning.

Tarpaulin. Hard wear-resistant material, but not at all aesthetic and not comfortable. It will serve for years, but the lack of comfort during use does not encourage a purchase.

Natural or artificial fur. A kind of winter version of covers. Very demanding to care and are used only in winter.

If you need universal and durable covers, choose eco-leather or Alcantara. Combined models are available. Ready to take the time to care? Then take a closer look at velveteen, jacquard, velor. They are warm and cozy, but you will need to clean them often.

How to choose the size of covers?

T-shirts and capes almost always have a universal size – choosing the right one for your car is not a problem at all. Cases are more difficult – it is important to choose the right size.

Many models are available in a universal size. But they do not sit on the seats like a glove. Therefore, it is better to choose strictly according to the size of car seats.

You can take measurements in centimeters and show them to the seller – he will help you make the right choice. The most common sizes for passenger cars are S or M.

Another option is to choose covers by make and model of car. Manufacturers sew them for a specific model and it will be extremely difficult to make a mistake with the size here.

What mounts are best?

The covers can be attached to the seats in a variety of ways. The most comfortable are elastic bands with hooks or Velcro. Both those and others are quickly and reliably fixed. There are models with zippers or elastic bands – such mounting options are also quite convenient for motorists.

The most uncomfortable – on the strings. They are difficult to shoot, so they are not very popular.
