Your vehicle’s interior takes a beating. Between daily wear and tear, spills, dirt, crumbs, and more, it’s no wonder your seats look worse for wear. Keeping your seats clean not only makes your car look nicer, it also protects the value of your vehicle in the long run. Enter the Carhartt Nylon Duck Bucket Seat Cover – the easy way to refresh your seats while protecting them against future stains and damage.
About the Carhartt Nylon Duck Bucket Seat Cover
The Carhartt Nylon Duck Bucket Seat Cover is designed specifically to shield your vehicle’s seats from the messes of everyday life. Made from a durable yet comfortable 85% 500D nylon cordura canvas blended with 10% ponte stretch and 5% nylon webbing, this seat cover is built to last.
The rain defender technology applied to the nylon fabric helps repel water, so you don’t have to worry as much about wet swimsuits or spills seeping into the seat material underneath. And for added durability, triple needle stitching is used throughout the seat cover to prevent rips and tears over time.
This seat cover from Carhartt provides a custom-fit feel thanks to the stretchy ponte side panels, which help create a snug, wrinkle-free installation. The shape and dimensions are tailored for bucket style front seats in most cars, trucks, SUVs, and other 4-wheeled vehicles. Measuring 52 inches wide x 22 inches high x 21 inches deep, the Carhartt Nylon Duck seat cover is large enough to accommodate bench-style rear seats as well.
The Carhartt Nylon Duck Bucket Seat Cover package includes 1 bucket seat cover designed to fit the driver or passenger front seat of most vehicles. No additional parts or pieces are required.
Key Features and Benefits
- Protects against stains and damage – The durable nylon canvas construction protects your seats from dirt, spills, grease, and daily wear. The water-repellent finish also prevents stains from setting into the fabric.
- Durable nylon fabric – Made with 85% heavy duty 500D nylon, this seat cover is abrasion-resistant and built to handle rugged use. The 10% ponte knit stretch fabric on the sides allows for a comfortable custom fit.
- Rain defender technology – Exclusive rain defender technology applied to the outer nylon shell helps repel water. Liquids bead up rather than soaking in and staining the seat underneath.
- Comfortable stretch side panels – Strategic ponte knit spandex stretch fabric allows the seat cover to hug the seat snugly. This creates a wrinkle-free installation without compromising range of motion.
- Triple needle stitching – For extreme durability, triple needle stitching is used for reinforced seams. This prevents rips, tears and early breakdown of the seat cover material.
How to Install the Carhartt Nylon Duck Bucket Seat Cover
Installing the Carhartt seat cover is quick and easy. Follow these steps for a smooth, wrinkle-free fit:
- Remove any existing seat covers and clear off the seat surface. Make sure the seat is clean and dry before applying the new cover.
- Identify the headrest opening at the top of the seat cover and the cutout for the seat belt buckle on the side or bottom.
- Slip the seat cover over the top of the seat, pulling it all the way down. Feed the headrest through the top opening.
- Stretch the ponte side panels around the outer edges of the seat to create a tight fit. Smooth any wrinkles as you go.
- Feed the seat belt buckle up through the opening on the side/bottom of the cover.
- Attach the elasticized bottom strap around the base of the seat to secure everything in place. Adjust as needed.
- For bench seats, wrap the cover around the seat back and secure using the adjustable attachment straps.
It may take a few rounds of adjusting and smoothing to get the seat cover positioned just right. The ponte side material allows you to stretch and tuck the cover for a custom, contoured fit.
Caring for Your Carhartt Seat Cover
To keep your Carhartt Nylon Duck Seat Cover looking like new, follow these care recommendations:
- Vacuum or brush the seat cover frequently to remove loose dirt and debris. Spot clean messes as soon as possible.
- Mix a mild soap and warm water solution. Use a soft bristle brush to scrub stains. Allow the seat cover to air dry completely.
- For tougher stains, wipe down with diluted vinegar or an all-purpose cleaner. Test on an inconspicuous area first.
- Check the cover periodically for rips, tears or damaged stitching. Make repairs promptly to prevent enlargement of holes.
- When washing is needed, machine wash warm on a gentle cycle. Line dry or tumble dry low. Do not bleach or iron.
Following the washing instructions and treating stains right away will help maintain the integrity and appearance of the seat cover so it keeps your seats protected for years of everyday use.
Choosing the Right Seat Cover for Your Needs
With so many types and options on the market, it can be tricky picking out the perfect seat cover. Here are some factors to consider when deciding which style and brand is best for your vehicle:
- Fit – An ill-fitting seat cover won’t adequately protect your seats. Measure your seats and check manufacturer dimensions for the most accurate size. Watch for seat covers specifically tailored to your vehicle make and model.
- Fabric – Durability and stain-resistance are crucial. Look for rugged, tightly woven fabrics with water-repellent finishes. Breathable fabrics will also provide more comfort.
- Features – Important features include straps to secure the seat cover in place, openings for seat belt buckles, headrest coverage, anti-slip backing, and more.
- Vehicle type – Are you covering front or rear seats? Bench or bucket style? Is it for a car, truck, SUV or something else? The seat cover needs to be vehicle-specific.
- Pets – If you have furry friends along for rides, look for heavy-duty, waterproof fabrics that can contain pet hair and resist punctures.
- Climate – In hot climates, breathable fabrics like cotton or mesh will stay cooler. Cold climates demand materials like faux sheepskin that insulate and stay warm.
- Usage – How you use your vehicle will dictate durability needs. Frequent travelers and work trucks require covers made for rugged use.
Keeping these factors and features in mind while shopping will ensure you select the perfect seat cover for protecting your vehicle seats and your needs.
