Marathon vs Hatchie Bottom Covers

Postby California Sprig » Sat Mar 12, 2011 1:39 pm

I am getting seat covers for the front and rear seats of my truck. I usually hual my labs in the back seat so i want something tough that their claws won't destroy quickly. I have narrowed my choices down to Marathon and Hatchie Bottoms. I kind of lean toward the Marathon superhides but I have heard that the Hatchie Bottoms neoprene are great covers too. I'd appeaciate any comments based on your experience with them specifically regarding - Fit, Quality, Wear and Fade.

i have hatchie bottom seat covers in my 03 f150 supercrew and they are awesome i got a deal on my front cover its a semi custom one the only diffrence was the custom one covered the arm rest/counsel in the front. as far a durability they are great mine are three yrs old and the drive seat is just alittle faded other than that they hold up well. I do concrete construction for work so i get in on them dirty and covered in oil and what ever and they take tne abuse well. And yes they are 100% water tight if put on right.i put them on in the parking lot of the hunting store bought them at and just so happened my wife spilled a bottle of water on the seat dry as could be just wipe the water off and good to go. I also wear ny chest waders on the when its raining and you just want to get home they seem to dry really fast. hope my input helps

I have the hatchie bottoms and really wish i would have bought the marathons. They seem to be built a lot tougher. I broke one of the seat covers before i even had time to put my butt in it. My covers have had a few seams already pull out. Thank God my grandma can sew good. The hatchie bottoms are not even 100% waterproof, but the marathons are. I would go with the marathons if you are going to be putting the labs in the back.
