    Perfect. Good find! I'll order those. I'll also get the rear seat cover as well: https://www.duluthtrading.com/search...cessor=content

    Be aware that the "firehose" material, is not that of what a firehose is made of. It is very similar to Carhartt's canvas duck cloth.
    I talked to a lot of people that thought they were getting some form of hose material.
    It's just a trademark name. High quality, but mostly made in China.

    Good point!
    I wondering if this would be the first time someone complained for not getting hosed?

    I'm not even sure what "firehoses" are made of. But if it's heavy duty rubber...no thanks. I hate leather seats, because they don't breathe. And get super hot/cold. I'd imagine rubber would have the same effect.

    Just got mine in today. Seems like good quality canvas. I'll install tonight, test it out for a few days, and report.

    EDIT: Well, it's not going to work. Their description clearly says it's compatible with side airbags. But the way the bungee cords go right over where the airbags deploy, I really doubt this will work. I called them and they were baffled as well. But great customer service, as they apologized profusely, and immediately said I could return it on their dime. I hope they will make seat covers that are airbag compliant in the future, because I really like the material, and more importantly, the customer service has been great. I will most likely buy the cargo area cover, and maybe the rear seat cover as well.

    Sorry for the confusion. I was referring to the nylon type covering on firehoses.

    Firehose is typically a synthetic woven jacket over a rubber liner. They make rubber hose but it sucks and is not commonly used.

    Needless to say Duluth just borrows the name

    But have you seen the reviews on the "buck naked" underwear? I'll have to try some.

    I get all giddy at the thought of my f****** seat exploding if someone runs in to me! I知 off to the dealer to buy a new rig with some seat air bags!
