They have a knappy microfiber surface, backed with a clear plastic liner, to keep stuff off the seats. We literally have to hold the left side of the cover when getting into the driver's seat, as they slide all over the place when you're entering the car, and they stick to you when exiting the car, whether in athletic garb or street clothes. On the plus side, they are actually grippier than the OEM cloth upholstery, so that during spirited driving, she says she stays in place better than without them...amazing, since that's the exact opposite of the advertised benefits.
They are literally the single most pain-in-the-keyster product that I can recall purchasing. Just to quiet her down, I've literally had to safety-pin the covers to the seats. I was ready to invest a few more dollars and try the UltraSport, (and move the EliteSport covers to the leather seats in my car,) but the phone rep talked me out of it...interesting way of doing business...I'm not sure if I should thank him or not.
The AllSport Seatshield is easy to put on and take off, keeps your seats free from sweat and odor, and requires very little maintenance.
The ITR Review Crew tested the Ultra Sport model and recommends it for anyone who wants to keep their vehicle looking, and smelling, nice. The Ultra Sport model, available in black, is comprised of a tri-laminate material with a waterproof/breathable middle layer. The knitted cloth top surface wicks moisture away from you where it can evaporate. The other layers provide protection for your seats.
The knitted cloth provides a very comfortable feel - much like a vehicle's cloth seats, with no plastic feeling that many other seat covers have. The manufacturer indicates that it also sits better on leather seats. The Ultra Sport also dries quickly, is treated with a permanent anti-microbial to kill odor-causing bacteria, and can be tossed in the washing machine if needed.
