Best leather car seat covers

The hunt for leather car seat covers that will protect your car's seat fabric, look good, and fit well sometimes feels like searching for a Leprechaun. We understand how elusive they can be.

The last thing you want is to settle for some seat covers you think may do the job, but end up falling apart or hanging loosely from the seat like a child wearing an oversized wetsuit. The child will grow into the wetsuit one day, but your seat will never fit oversized covers.

In response to these legitimate concerns, we have compiled a shortlist of excellent leather car seat covers. Our picks are quite different in terms of style but all are very well made. We just advise that you double and triple check your car seat size against those of the seat covers. The number one reason for grumpy customers is ill-fitting covers. This is closely followed by poor quality, but our choices eliminate that issue.

It's worth pointing out that none of the products below are actual leather. One reason for this is because of traceability issues with leather products, and we don't wish to promote leather goods that involve animal cruelty. However, the other reason is that faux leather car seats are much easier to care for, which is better for you.
