Are those black with a gray stripe?

Yes, that's the one. For $25, can't go wrong. It is supposed to be waterproof. Except for the seat everything else is dark, so it matches. I have to look but i think the cover has some weak spot for the side air bag to come through.

I was going to create a thread about this, but what is the best way to protect the front seats? I'm pretty active(Scuba/Hiking/Gym/etc) and I'm ussually the only one in the car and am concerned about all the wear and tear my drivers seat will have over time. The stitching in my Mazda3 drivers seat is broken and I am wondering what I can do to protect the seat in my CRV
Thanks

I have been searching through Amazon thinking neoprene would be a good choice, but just about every cover has comments that the cover stained their light colored leather or cloth upholstery. Since I have the grey upholstery, I want to find something that won't cause more of a problem than everyday soil.

What about buying large bath towels and draping them over the seats when needed. That is what I did when my kids were younger.

If I can't find some regular seat covers, I'm going to make some semi-fitted ones out of heavyweight towels. I was just trying to avoid all that aggravation.

I had installed Wet Okole on my Jeep. After 14 years of coffee, rain, sweat, cola, wet bathing suits, wear and tear I took them off to sell the jeep, the seats were prestine. They're not cheap, but they fit like a glove and protected the seat better than the Enterprise's shields. They design and test them with seats with air bags to besure they don't interfere.

What type (and what color) upholstery did you have on the jeep? I'm only worried that with my light upholstery, there may be residual staining that wouldn't show on black.

Grey fabric somewhat darker than the CRV

Thanks, I never looked at the reviews. Now reading through them, this might actually cause more problems. I am going to remove it. Costco return policy is good. I like the white towel idea for summer. I can just move it aside when I need heated seats.

+1 on the Wet Okole seat covers.
I have had them in my Ridgeline for over 11 years and they still look great.
They fit like a glove! Anything that stained them was easily remove with the seat shampoo they sell.

They are very well made and the price to match.
I remember paying $500 for both the front and rear.

Would I buy them again? YES!

Looks like they're made differently -- the neoprene covered on both sides with nylon so hopefully that will eliminate any staining. Also, I don't think that neoprene is good to have in contact with leather (for those of you with fancier CRVs :cool:)
