Default Dingo Seat Covers - TOUGH COVERS



Tough covers for tough conditions.

A few days ago I was sitting at work thinking to my self I need some seat covers for the TJ. But ordinary seat covers wouldn’t do the job. I needed something that can handle mud, dirt and grease. As I was having this thought the phone rang, it was Tim Forsyth one of the owners of Dingo Seat covers. He told me that he had met Jimmy B at the Landcruiser Expo. He went on to explain that he needed to borrow a seat out of a new model TJ to make some heavy duty seat cover patterns, and of course I was more than happy to oblige. I received the seat back with a complementary seat cover to try out.




Will it make my butt smile?

Most people have seen canvas seat cover before. The market dominator has been Black Duck, until now. Dingo seat covers started out in the small mining town of Weipa on the Gulf of Carpentaria, where Tim and his wife Di (The Boss) started to make some seat covers for mate’s cars and tractors. Little did they know at the time that they would be a hit…not only in Weipa but nation wide.

Each seat cover is hand made to suit every individual seat. They are reinforced in all the right places and easily removable and fully machine washable. Are the comfortable? You bet they are. For canvas they are extremely soft and cool. They also stand the test of time. Tim has had the same seat cover on his 100 series seat for over 5 years. Not only does the seat below look like new, the seat cover is showing zero wear.

The practicality of these covers is incredible. They have the option of a snatch strap pocket on the back of the seats. They also have pockets available on the sides of the seats for mobile phones, you uhf mic or as in my case… My smokes. The beauty of these pockets is they keep their contents clean and dry.

Guys I would definately recommend these covers. They are valuable for every type of car, 4wd, truck, motorbike and tractor. I’m sure that they could even make covers for your chairs at home if you wanted that to.

The Ausjeep XJ now has these, and for another opinion, these covers are tough!

Extra pockets, snug fit, drop all my food on them, these things rock!

(OLD POST. Just adding mine to Jimmyb's review.)

Unbeknown to me, Santa's little helper was busy making me some prototype custom seat covers for my TJ prior to Xmas.

And what can I say, but "Dingo Seat Covers" are great . Unlike the previous covers I have owned I no longer get sweaty whilst driving (especially in certain places ), sitting on crappy clammy nylon covers is a thing of the past.

New TWO-TONE Coloured Canvas Seat Covers from DINGO.

One of the major concerns "Dingo" had when I requested coloured covers was the that coloured canvas colours may run into each other if they got wet or that the colours may stain the owners clothing. After some time was spent testing the coloured canvas the conclusion was that they didn't do any of the above. Meaning these wonderful new two tone seat covers are now going to be made available to the public.





Another addition is the Extra Pockets I chose, these make carrying the usual bits and pieces easier. Such as recovery gears, the drivers side rear pocket holds my snatch strap, tree saver and a couple of D shackles, plus a little room left over.



A smaller pocket was added the the rear of passenger seat, the smaller pocket was recommended by "Dingo" to make it easier for back seat passengers to get in the vehicle. Good thinking eh?

I wanted some pockets that were easily accessible to store my torch and hand held UHF or maybe a mobile phone. So "Dingo" put these pockets on for me.



One other pocket I wanted was a Stash pocket to tuck smaller items out of the way, such as maybe my wallet, keys or smokes etc.
So a small pocket was attached on the front lower section of the my drivers seat, when closed securely with the velcro (unlike below for demo purposes ) it is almost invisible. Making it and its contents less obvious.



These Seat Cover are great! I very happy with them (and they've got red on them, red= ), they are guaranteed not to wrinkle under yer bum creating uncomfy pressure points, they are as water resistant as canvas can be (very), they are not slippery but you also don't have to peel yourself out of them and did I mention that they are colour coded RED

So if you are are in the market for a new set of seat covers then I strongly recommend these.

A huge thanks goes out to Maria for being so patient with me.
