Review of Ford Transit Van Custom Tailored Front Seat Covers
This is a review of the custom fit 2013 on wards Ford Transit front van seat covers. A fitted seat cover set for your driver and passenger van seats. This set comes with a single drivers (right hand drive) seat cover and a double passenger seat cover.
When buying a custom fitted seat cover set, you'll have that extra reassurance that the cover set is definitely going to fit your van seats. In this case, the 2013 and on wards Ford Transit van seat cover set will do exactly that, it will fit this van, just make sure you have chosen the correct year set for your van.
At first glance, the quality and material of this van seat cover set is the best we've seen with any seat cover we have tested and reviewed, it's cotton based with a PU denier, polyester top, this means that it isn't slippery when sat on, completely waterproof and very tough. You probably won't find a better material for covering your van seats.
With this set, you get the seats, which are the drivers and two passengers, as well as arm rests and three headrests. This set fits like a glove and isn't too hard to get set up. It's not as easy as the single front car seat covers you can buy which just stretch over the seat and can be put on and taken off in seconds. Due to this, it means that they don't move around, they are very secure and will hopefully last years when first put on your seats.
They use different fittings, from velcro around the sides to straps with quick release to go underneath and behind, this means for a super secure and perfect fit for all of your seats. They have made this product perfectly and thought exactly on how it should fit and to the exact measurements.
The headrests and arm rests are fitted separately but this is simple and completes the look and protection the seat covers provide for the front of your vans interior.
Because of the perfect fit and custom fitting, they have taken in to account the extra storage options that come with a newer Ford Transit. There are drink holders on the passenger seats and also storage under the passenger seats when you flip them forward.
Once fitted, you can still use all of these extra features on your van. The passenger seat just unzips a small square section on the backrest and the cup holders fold down, leaving your van seat covers in place and you don't need to remove.
As well as this, you can flip the passenger seat bottom forwards to access the storage beneath it. Even when you have fitted your custom Ford Transit seat covers, this storage is still accessible.
- Perfect fitting for your Ford Transit Van
- Super tough, extra heavy duty material which should last years
- Can still use the storage and cup holders in the front of your van and under the seats
- Quite affordable compared to Fords branded van seat covers
- Take a while to fit, they don't just slip over the seat
Superb quality and material used to protect the front seats of your Ford Transit van. We can see these lasting years and they have really thought about the build of them as you are still able to access the storage sections under your vans seats.
Review of Vauxhall Vivaro Heavy Duty Van Seat Covers
A heavy duty front van seat cover set for the Vauxhall Vivaro. This set comes with a front drivers seat cover and the two passenger seats cover as well. It is a heavy duty material which is great for van use which will see much more wear and tear than a car would.
We look more in to this product below and how it can protect your van interior and seats from general and work use.
At first glance this is a real heavy duty van seat cover set, made specifically for the Vauxhall Vivaro, it looks promising. It is not waterproof or machine washable like more top end and more expensive luxury van seat cover sets but it will still take a wipe down from a damp cloth and a shake off.
The fit is not perfect for this van, the seat covers seem slightly baggy, but we believe this is better than not fitting and being too tight and hard to fit. Because they are slighty baggy you will be able to take them off after a days use and give them a shake or wipe them clean. Unlike the fitted, custom seat covers which take at least 15 minutes to fit to the van seats.
We are pleased with the product considering the affordability and price of the set. It reminds us of the universal seat covers you can get for the front of your car where you simply stretch the covers around the edges of your seat.
This set might work for other van makes and models as well due to how it fits to the seats but we haven't tried them with any other vans.
- Really heavy duty and thick material, so great for protecting your vans seats against the worst muck, dirt, paint and more
- Really affordable price
- Very easy to fit to the front seats of your van
- Loose fitting on the passenger seats
- Tight fitting on the drivers seat
- Can get your clothes caught on the velcro of the drivers seat
A great set of front van seat covers for a really good price. You can't get single front seat covers for this price. If you have the Vauxhall Vivaro you can't go too wrong with this set, it will protect your van from the worst of the muck you might bring in your van with you. The only downside is that it isn't waterproof and only time will tell if they'll last.
Review of Fiat Ducato Heavy Duty Van Seat Covers
Review of the Fiat Ducato heavy duty van seat cover set, which comes in grey and fits a single front drivers seat and 2 passenger seat bench.
The product description states that these seat covers are actually universal but are advertised for a Fiat Ducato van. After closer inspection we have seen that they should fit in other vans that have a single front drivers seat and a 2 person passenger bench seat.
If you are after protecting your car interior, seats from spillages, pets, dirt whilst you work, these could be for you.
Even though the product title states that these are specifically for Fiat Ducato, the description says otherwise. We have tested them and they are actually a near perfect fit for a Ducato van. So, if you have similar sized van seats then this cover set would still work for you.
It is made of nylon and pretty hard wearing, we have only tested for a while and only time will tell if the seams and material last but at first glance it seems very strong.
The material is quite thick and would protect from most spillages, paint, liquids or dirt that you bring in from your days work as a trades person or commercial work. It is fully water proof and when we threw water over it it just ran off and we were very happy with it.
The van seat cover set can be cleaned very easily by wiping it down with a damp cloth and then either letting it dry or by toweling it dry.
When fitting, you can still use the arm rest of the drivers seat as this cover does not go over it. The 2 person passenger seat bench has a hole with velcro on it to allow for the seat belt clip to pop through which means you can still use the seat belts. It has been well thought out and even though it is meant for a Fiat Ducato, would fit other vans as well. The covers take just a couple of minutes to fit the seats and they are then ready and protected for your journeys.
- Affordable price
- Fully waterproof so no problems with paint on your clothes or liquids being spilled
- Easy to fit, just takes a couple of minutes to fit to your front van seats
- States universal seat cover set in the description but this would be better of as just a Fiat Diable seat cover set
- Seams may not be the strongest but only time will tell
Overall a good looking, affordable seat cover set for your Fiat Ducato, or other van with similar seat arrangement. Feels heavy duty and is fully waterproof but only time will tell if this seat cover set lasts through thorough use.
Review of Universal Pair Heavy Duty Waterproof Van Seat Covers
These are advertised as Citreon Berlingo van seat covers but are actually universal van seat covers for a single driver seat and two passenger seats joined together. So if you have a Citreon Berlingo or another van, this should fit your front seats and protect them from your daily work.
They are water resistant and entirely black, so will help keep your van safe from liquids including paint and other work materials.
These are universal van seat covers which will fit your three front seats of your van. They have been made for any van with three front seats, one for a front drivers seat and one cover for two passenger seats adjoined.
Unlike fitted seat covers for vans, these are an all in one seat cover set, you have one cover which fits in the bottom, back rest and head rest of each seat. So when fitting the seat cover you only have to stretch the cover over the seat you are fitting and it will stretch around the entire of the seat in one go. You finish the seat fitting off by using the velcro on the edges to hold the cover in place.
Because they are not fitted, they are super easy to get on and off your seats. They have space for the three seat belts and this seat cover set can even split in the middle to just cover a single passenger seat if required.
- Universal van seat covers so should fit any vans with a single drivers seat and a double passenger seat
- Heavy duty material which is also water resistant, fine for wiping down with a cloth when dirty
- Very good price for the complete set
- Advertised as Citreon Berlingo van seat covers but are actually universal, so won't fit your Berlingo perfectly.
Great overall heavy duty seat cover set for your van. Covers all three front seats and for a great price, they are universal so will fit nearly all van seat sizes.
