    I wanted to give an unsolicited review and some props for these Covie sport covers I picked up over the weekend.

    I met the owner at an athletic event expo in Austin and bought a couple of covers. He was a great dude and gave me a pretty sweet deal. The expo pricing was $30 for 2. I was able to give them a try and thought they looked good, fit perfect, had great moisture absorption and did not slide like towels do.

    Would definitely recommend!

    So is this to have in your car all of the time or just to protect the seat from the kids? How far does it go on the back?

    It looks like it would be fairly easy to take on and off. The front seat version of these covers looks like they go down a few inches below the bottom of the headrest. Actually, you can see where they stop on the back from his photos. In the case of the Model X, you would probably want to use the front seat version since you can wrap around each of the seats, whether front or back.

    There was another post about some seat covers from Costco. They didn't fit as neatly as these, but they did go all the way down the back, which would protect the seat back finish as well. Kind of like a big sox over the seats. It would be interesting to read comments about both in terms of protecting the seats from dog wear.

    Reminds me of my grandmother covering up the living room furniture to save it for "best".
    "Best" turned out to be funerals including her own.......swore never to cover anything up. Ever.

    Correct, the hood rests just over the headrest and the rest just rests over the seat. there is a rubberized liner on the bottom portion so it doesn't slide. I just throw these on after I (or my kids) get sweaty, dirty or wet after a workout, beach, paddleboard, etc. Way better than a towel.

    Doesn't this block the airbags in the seats?

    doesn't look like it.

    you can see the white from the side of the seat sticking out in the picture.

    Can the cover be moved sideway easily?
    I bought a similar style cover from Amazon and my dog somehow always manages to move the cover sideway so that she ends up sleeping directly on the white seat cushion! Would be nice to have a cover with elastic to hold it to the bottom of the seat, similar to a bed sheet with elastic.

    Something like what this member bought from Costco might stay put better, since it goes over the sides as well:

    Things like this are like not "sleeping" with your girlfriend to preserve her for later - the other guy or when you have no more "interest"

    I'm not sure I quite get your point, but do you let your dogs jump on your seats without protecting the seats? Maybe you don't have dogs. Obviously, you use these covers only when the dogs are in the car.

    Yeah - I was thinking they would be good for the pool or the beach, and you could keep them in the frunk until you need them.
