Best Seat Covers for Construction Workers

Best Seat Covers for Construction Workers

Construction truck (and heavy equipment) cabs see it all: dust, dirt, coffee, sandwich guts. No shortage of debris will find its way onto the seat. So, protecting those seats with a seat cover is smart. But which cover should you go with?

You’ll want something tough, waterproof, antimicrobial if there’s more than one butt in the driver’s seat, and doesn’t bunch up like a sock in a work boot. We could say you should choose TigerTough, but that’s not the only option out there.

We’ll share some of our favorite seat covers, and you can choose which is best for you.

Best Work Truck Seat Covers

We’ve spent many manhours testing out seat covers, trying them. Some have been competitive, others have been disappointing. We won’t waste your time with the seat covers we weren’t impressed with. But no matter what, try to look for these qualities in a truck seat cover:

  • Washable
  • Waterproof
  • Airbag safe
  • Separate seatback and bottom
  • Good warranty
  • Made in the U.S.

We’ll share prices with you based on a 2023 Ford F-150. With all that info in mind, let’s get into these seat covers for construction workers.

Marathon

Marathon Seat Covers

On paper, Marathon is one of our biggest competitors. Their covers are made from 1000-denier CORDURA®️ in good ole Montana. 

Pros

  • Washable
  • Waterproof
  • Airbag safe
  • Separate seatback and bottom
  • Made in the U.S.
  • Price is on the lower end
  • They have a bunch of accessories you can add to the seat covers

Cons

  • Some recent negative reviews about quality on their Google listing
  • Camo is only 500-denier CORDURA®️
  • Production time is 4-5 weeks
  • No returns
  • Limited warranty

Price: $315 (with headrests)

Carhartt PrecisionFit

Carhartt Precision Fit Seat Covers

OK, we don’t normally suggest these because the price is steep. But they’re a great option if you’re loyal to Carhartt.

Pros

  • Washable
  • Water-resistant
  • Airbag safe
  • Separate seatback and bottom (their SeatSavers aren’t)
  • Come with seatback pockets as standard

Cons

Price: $560

Wet Okole

We Okole Seat Covers

People love Wet Okole, despite that the name means “wet butt” in Hawaiian. They fit well and look good on. Raving fans have had Wet Okole on for years. They’re made in California and loved by surfers and construction workers alike.

Pros

  • Washable by hand with wetsuit shampoo
  • Waterproof (but check out how they absorb liquids)
  • Airbag safe
  • Separate seatback and bottom (their SeatSavers aren’t)
  • Made in the U.S.

Cons

  • They’ll protect your seat from liquid, but the cover is designed to hold the liquid, so you’ll literally have a wet butt with spills. Think of it like a diaper--it's going protect your seat from spills, but it's also going to get a little squishy with any wetness.

Price: $374

TigerTough

TigerTough Seat Covers

Our covers are made in Minnesota from American-made materials by American men and women. We design exclusively for the blue-collar world, so you won’t see us offering covers for minivans or coupes anytime soon. Our covers made from 1000-denier CORDURA®️ are put through torture tests so we can confidently say they’re nearly indestructible.

Pros

Cons

  • Limited colors

Price: $297

The competition is slim when it comes to heavy equipment seat covers, but there are a few out there. You’re going to want to look for similar things in heavy equipment seat covers:

  • Washable

  • Good warranty

Ultra Seat

Ultra Seat Seat Cover

This is an aftermarket seat company that makes covers for its seats. It offers only three different kinds of covers: high back, medium back, and low back.

Pros

  • Washable
  • Separate seatback and bottom
  • They fit their seats like a dream, and should also fit Grammer seats well
  • The quality seems great
  • Made in Canda
  • Inexpesive

Cons

  • They won’t fit OEM seats well
