Default Neoprene seat covers

I've been looking for seat covers but orders a hi lift neoprene cover for my jack and it faded in about 2 wks. Is this common for neoprene? Has anyone had their covers fade bad?

Cheers

My neoprene seat covers haven't faded but they are starting to wear out after only 18 months, the covering over the neoprene is wearing thin and exposed. don't really care as i have new mall crawler on order with leather so wont be putting seat covers on. Was going to buy a set for my other jeep but i think i will look for something different.

I have black and blue neoprene seat covers and they faded within a few months just from going topless on the weekends last summer.
I loved them but if you take your top off a lot be prepared to have them fade....

They are coverking brand.

The Smittybilt neoprene covers do fade over a couple of years. Whne 4wd was running their 'buy front, get rears free' deal for $120 total, getting 3+ years use was pretty good.

I just looked, their price jumped to $280. WTF ! That makes Katskin leather covers an alternative for $500-800

I roll topless most of the season. Pretty much any chance I have. I wanted to go with the black on black, but there seems to be no point if they're gonna be grey in a few months anyway.
