Owning a Ford F-150 truck sure has its use, if not hauling items from one end to the other, is touring the landscape. However, what’s puzzling the most is the fact that there are tons of fabrics to choose from for seat covers. Is there a cypher to it? Perhaps a specific fabric type for the model? Neither, and that’s what makes it so tiresome in selecting the ideal fabric for F-150 covers.
Fortunately, we have a base, in most cases, durability and comfort are primary guiding aspects. Next up is the role these seat covers will be put to, and its care and maintenance. After which we can include a dash of our lifestyle and personality. Shall we begin?
We start the list with the most durable seat cover fabric there is. Canvas, moreover, is favoured upon by owners of trucks, trade vehicles, lorries and general agriculture vehicles like tractors. Canvas is also employed in tent making and thus is waterproof and can handle rough treatment very well. Unfortunately, comfort is not its forte, having been specifically designed for durability. Therefore, its full potential can only be enjoyed by heavy-lifting and hauling Ford F-150 trucks.
Neoprene and NeoSupreme Fabrics
These two tend to share more similarities than differences and thus, can share the same spot. Neoprene is an amazing all-around seat cover fabric, but did you know it is used in making diving wetsuits? Not only is it comfortable, durable but also highly moisture resistant. If you live close by the sandy beaches and love to surf out the waves, neoprene seat covers just fit perfectly.
NeoSupreme on the other hand is quite modest with its similarities. It is waterproof and still achieves the active-sporty look of the former. A differential advantage, however, is that it cost much less than neoprene and requires extra padding for comfort.
Leather and Leatherette Fabric
It’s no doubt the Ford F-150 trucks do look amazing in leather seat covers. Aside from the visual aesthetics, they resist moisture as well and have a “godly” scent about them. it conveys an ideal posh urban lifestyle and thus will be unsuitable for heavy-duty rough treatment.
In as much as leather is the easiest to clean since it’s 100% waterproof, it is by far the most difficult to maintain. Leather seat covers, being of natural origins and not synthetic, requires very special care. If subjected to harsh conditions, it can crack easily and get damaged.
Leatherette is an imitation variant of leather. Not only do they offer similar advantages as leather, but are also cheap. Moreover, they require no special maintenance and are still easy to clean.
Advanced Technology Fabrics
In this category, we’ll look at the famous MegaTek and UltraGuard Ballistic seat covers. These two have been made into perfection, providing a blend of advantages. MediaTek is rugged, durable and indestructible thanks to its Anti-Tear technology.
The UltraGuard Ballistic is suitable for families with toddlers who can’t seem to forgo being messy at every turn. Its impeccable waterproofing coupled with its armour-like outer layer makes this smoothly rugged material a hit with parents.
Camouflage Pattern Fabrics
Now, this next fabric is sure to bring smiles to those who desire a different outlook in their F-150s. camouflage patterns range from military-style to outdoor environmental themes. In the latter category, Saddleman shares the popular True Timber, Mossy Oak and Real Tree Camouflage setup. These appeal to the hunters and outdoor enthusiasts on their 4×4 F-150 trucks.
A western-themed polyester fabric designed for heavy-duty commercial use and hose-down cleaning. Saddle-Blanket is comfortable and breathable, thanks to the larger pores on the polyester mesh.
Velour, similarly to Neoprene, is a basic seat cover material choice. Usually modelled after the original upholstery, they are used to “hide” the fact that you have seat covers. velour is soft to the touch and comfortable. Unfortunately, it’s not that durable and sadly, not waterproof.
Velour seat covers are economic and multipurpose for Ford F-150 trucks.
