Covercraft’s Carhartt Custom Duck Weave Seat Covers Offer Fair Price, Stout Protection
Protect your car from job-site grime with these bib overalls for your truck.
Construction workers get dirty. I’ve gone home wearing everything from roof tar to thinset to diesel oil to century-old black soot that was buried in farmhouse walls. Many of my work clothes are deemed DOA and tossed in the trash without considering washing—a thought that recently occurred to me as I was admiring the flawless upholstery in my brand-new work truck. Considering my new truck cost slightly more than my first house, I decided some protection was needed, so I bought a front-seat set of Covercraft’s Carhartt Custom Duck Weave Seat Covers.
The “custom” portion of the title rings true. Each set is ordered for a particular year, make, model, and submodel. The set for my truck included separate covers for the seat bottom and back as well as covers for the console. The construction is all Carhartt: the familiar duck material, triple-stitched seams, and brass rivets. The installation went smoothly and the finished product fits like a glove. The covers have fended off pipe dope, coffee, and even some red tractor paint. After five months, they are showing some grime but no wear. The covers are machine washable, and have tearaway Velcro closures for in-seat air bags. I think the $270 price is fair, given the stout protection they provide.
