What Are Tactical Seat Covers?

A lot of companies sell "Tactical" seat covers. But what exactly makes them Tactical? Is it the use of military grade fabric? Or is it the strips of Velcro across the back that make them look like a military backpack? Maybe it's a spec-ops theme so they sound tough.Let us demonstrate what makes a seat cover Tactical. We make a truly tactical seat cover. It is a cover designed specifically for men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect us. TigerTough Tactical seat protection is designed specifically for police vehicles. Our Ironband protects your seat from your duty belt. Our fabric is more abrasion resistant than Kevlar.They aren't camouflage and they don't have miles of Velcro on them, but TigerTough Tactical covers DO stand up to the abuse of being part of a police car.

Why do we make seat covers for police vehicles?

If the seats take a beating in any vehicle, its police vehicles. Officers can easily be in an out of their vehicle up to 50 times in a shift. That alone puts a lot of stress on the seat, say nothing about the duty belt wearing the back of the seat while the officer is seated as well.

Why should a department use seat covers?

There are three major reasons that you should be using seat covers in your patrol vehicles:

1. Improve Driver Morale 

If your officers are getting into a vehicle that has a ripped, torn, and worn out interior, they're not going to feel good about their cruiser.

2. Increase Resale Value 

Your vehicles are going to be worth more when you're finished with them if the seats are in great condition. When you install tactical seat covers in your new police vehicles, the seats are preserved until the covers are removed.

3. Save Money and Reduce Downtime 

Again, this is another benefit of covering your vehicles' seats when they're new. It far less expensive to put TigerTough seat covers on your new vehicles than it is to remove torn seats and re-upholster. TigerTough seat covers install in about 15 minutes, depending on experience. That beats a couple of days of downtime at the upholsterer!
