Best Side-by-Side Seat Covers

Best Side by Side Seat Covers

If you couldn’t guess, we love seat covers. Not only are they our livelihood, but they’re also an affordable way to preserve your seats and improve the resale value of your car, truck, SUV…and UTV. We’ve reviewed some of the top brands in seat covers for trucks, but we want to explore options for side-by-sides since that’s a growing market. 

But we need to warn you: There aren’t many options. Initially, it looked like there were maybe ten or so brands available, but then we discovered that one manufacturer resells its covers under private labels. There's no shame in that, but we quickly realized that some of the brands we were seeing were, in fact, just one brand (sometimes relabeled).

And whenever we do these reviews, we try to find only legit manufacturers and websites. If something feels spammy, we don’t include it. We also dig into the facts–if a company doesn’t list info on their site, we contact their customer service team to learn more.

So, let’s compare the top side-by-side seat cover brands. For pricing, we’ll use a 2023 Polaris Ranger Crew 1000 XP.

Ruff Tuff: Most Variety

Ruff Tuff UTV Seat Cover

We’re no strangers to Ruff Tuff. We recently reviewed their truck seat covers so we expect the same quality from their UTV covers. We love that they’re made right in the USA in good ole Utah. Their Dura EZ care seat covers seem to be a good choice, but they have other fabric options as well. According to their customer service, the Dura EZ Care is made of a 600-denier poly-canvas blend.

Ruff Tuff is a distributor, so you can purchase directly from them, or from other resellers like UTV Direct, Seat Cover Solutions, and Covers and Camo. This is the manufacturer we mentioned. They’ve definitely found their corner in the UTV seat cover neighborhood.

Quick facts

  • Made in the USA
  • Limited 1-year warranty
  • No returns
  • Many color options 

Price: $267

Mudderswag: Neoprene Option

This company specializes in seat covers for mud lovers. They don’t even make seat covers for trucks, which is probably why we hadn’t come across them before. We love a good niche seat cover company, so Mudderswag was a fun discovery.

All of their covers are made of black neoprene and customized to fit your particular side-by-side model. Neoprene is a great option for seat covers, and we imagine these would be similar to Wet Okole seat covers in terms of fit and how they react to water.

They have a 30-day return policy, but we couldn’t find any warranty information. At the time of publication, their customer service hadn’t yet responded.

Our hesitation with this brand is that they haven't posted on social media since 2019 and their lack of response from customer service.

Quick Facts

  • Only available in black
  • Made of neoprene
  • 30-Day return policy

Price: $210

Carhartt: Best Reputation

Carhartt UTV seat Cover

We’ve been around the block with Carhartt a time or two. We’re super familiar with their truck seat covers, so we have a pretty good idea of what their Polaris seat covers are like. 

Keep in mind that these are going to look and feel like Carhartt’s trusty workwear. So they aren’t totally waterproof, but they’re washable. They also wear faster than other materials. It looks like their side-by-side covers don’t include headrest covers. That’s not a deal-breaker, but we just wanted to lay all the facts out there for you.

We need to be upfront: these won’t fit a 2023 Polaris Ranger Crew 1000 XP, but we wanted to have a Carhartt option here. 

Also, we couldn't find an actual photo of these seat covers, only renderings. 

Quick facts:

  • Won’t fit all Polaris models
  • Made of Carhartt Cotton Duck
  • Made in the U.S. and Mexico
  • Limited 1-year warranty

Price: $230

Kemimoto: Best Price

Kemimoto UTV seat cover

This was the least expensive (and legit) seat cover we came across. (Remember those spammy sites we mentioned? Lots of those are in this price range.) Available in two colors, Kemimoto boasts about having waterproof, durable seat covers. We like that!

We don’t love the elastic around the edge. Elastic wears out, and it wears out even quicker in the elements. Once the elastic is shot, the seat covers just won’t fit the same. That custom seat cover will fit more like a loose pair of movie-watching sweats.

These are made in China, and according to their customer service team, their covers are made of 1680D fabric. We don't love admitting it, but we're not sure if this is accurate. Denier can be measured in a few ways (but there's really only one correct way), and based on the flexibility of the Kemimoto fabric, we think this would traditionally be measured as an 840D fabric.

Quick facts:

  • Made of 1680D oxford
  • Limited 6-month warranty
  • 40-day return policy
  • Two color options
  • Waterproof

Price: $90

TigerTough: Best Warranty

We're brand new to the side-by-side game, but this has been in the works for nearly a year. Seat covers are our bread and butter so we're super excited for this product release. 

“Since we’ve been making seat covers for work trucks for over 30 years, it just makes sense to keep expanding our line of seat covers for more vehicles and equipment that are getting used and abused daily. We started covering law enforcement vehicles in 2016, construction equipment in 2022, and now side-by-sides.

I’m excited to get these into service because when you look at industries where people are using their Ranger or Gator as a tool to do their work like construction, first responders, and rentals, the seats take a beating. We’ve had massive customer demand for these and now they’re finally available.”

- Sheldon Zitzmann, Marketing Director

Since the natural habitat of a UTV is rather wild, we supply our side-by-sde covers with an unconditional lifetime warranty. If you wreck your seat covers, we'll replace them.

Overall Best Side-By-Side Seat Cover

That’s up to you. Each brand has its benefits and pitfalls, and there are only a few UTV seat cover options to choose from (don’t worry, we looked). Ultimately, you just need something that’s going to do well in the elements and protect your seats for years. We always suggest U.S. products and something with a strong warranty. But, it’s best that you find something that meets your budget and your needs.
