OK, I know what you're thinking. Why spend $20+ on a seat cover when I can just use an old towel. This is so much better than a towel. First of all, because of the headrest pocket, it is super easy to install. I just slip it into place when I exit the gym. Second, it covers the entire seat and here is the most important part, it doesn't slip. WIth a beach towel, you have to be careful how you sit because the towel can slip and you find yourself sitting on part of the seat. This is not the case with this seat cover. It stays put even when I swivel myself out of the car seat. OK, that doesn't sound like the most masculine way to exit a car but the point is that the seat cover stays put. Well worth the money to get this seat cover. I'll likely buy another.
