I am interested in getting fitted sheepskin covers for my seats. Does anyone know a way to use these safely with the seat mounted side impact airbags? Can fitted seat covers even be used for our vehicle?

Thanks!

The covers account for this....
Any possible recommendation on brand or seller? I would really appreciate any insight.

I don't want a seat cover that hides the nice look of the c7, but I do like coverage when looks are not imporstnt like running aroumd town in my dirty jeans and the like. I get both with an aires seat defender, a simple rubberized sheet that grabs the seat and goes over the headrest with a shower cap configuration. They go on/off in 30 secs and allow you also to slide in the seat. I've used them in my last 3 cars leather. Seats look like new. Only downside is They block seat cooling, fine with me.

Get it on amazon and other places....

Yeah, I saw the thread on those and was all set to order them. That is until I mentioned them to my wife. She didn't really like the look and has always loved the sheepskin covers for there comfort. I feel the same way you do about covering up the seats but I am worried about them getting that used look feel after a few years. I used to have a STSV (about same quality leather) and after a couple years they did look a bit worn.

I have successfully used McGuiar's (sp?) Rich Leather Wipes to clean blue denim transfer from the tan colored leather (smooth and perforated) in my GMC Yukon. It took several passes, but it didn't leave the leather slick, shiny or wet--I did buff off all residue with a microfiber towel. I would try it on an inconspicuous place first, in order to make sure it didn't cause more problem.

Ended up getting these sheepskin ones custom made:

I don't want to sound mean but they are kind of ugly and they cover up the really good looking c7 seats.

Actually, sheepskin covers are amazing, cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It has to do with ventilation, you never fully compress the coat so air can circulate underneath you. I use them a lot on motorcycles however I would never consider them in a sports car. Each to their own.

Can I ask who made them and can you still feel the seat ventilation?
Got them on eBay from this seller: - c00lsheepskin. He creates them custom directly from the GM seat pattern.

The ventilation does go through the sheepskin a little, but not that much. Heating works as expected.

Not at all. They stay very cool within the summer and are very comfortable.

Sheepskin covers rock. In humid northeast: Never sweaty, never sticky. Smell, meh. But otherwise does the trick.
