What kind of company is Marathon Seat Covers?

The company began operations in Bozeman, Montana in November of 1978.  We are the manufacturer and retailer of our seat covers.  We sell direct to the public as well as to retail customers in the local area.  We have a small number of dealers across the US and Canada but they all order direct from our factory.  We have earned our sterling reputation for quality one customer at a time.  Presently we employ 30 people, each concerned with the satisfaction of every customer.

Is this a "one size fits all" cover? How much of the seat is covered?

This is not a universal or "one size fits all" product. We make each cover to fit exactly right every time. Our two piece design eliminates that unsightly "hammock" effect. And best of all, the entire seat is fully covered, even the back.

What kind of materials are used?

We use the finest and most durable fabrics available. Colors are available to complement today's fashionable interiors. NO STRETCH FABRIC is used. No vinyl is used, unless you ask for it specifically. Camo fabrics are 500 and 1,000 denier Cordura nylon, waterproof and "tough as nails."

How easily can I install my new covers?

Our simple "Touch-and-Go" hook-and-loop, (Velcro-like), fasteners make a quick, yet secure installation. Your seat covers will not interfere with the motion of your seat; they allow folding, sliding, tumbling forward, and laying back. Allow one-half hour to two hours to install each set.

Can I get matching armrest and headrest covers?

For a truly custom look, add matching headrest covers ($36/pair), armrest covers ($20 each or $36/pair) and map pockets ($10 each for front and rear). Various gun scabbards and pockets can be specially designed and sewn to the seat covers. Tell us what you need; we will try to make it.

How do I care for my new covers? Can I machine wash them?

Your seat covers may be machine washed, but not dried. Use lukewarm water and mild detergent. Do not use liquid fabric softener or bleach. Coil and bind the fastening straps with a rubber band, then wrap the coil in a plastic sandwich bag and secure with a rubber band. This way the straps will not flail the seat covers and make a mess in the tumbling process. Hang dry.

Will seat covers damage my original upholstery?

Original upholstery, even leather, is far better off when protected from sand, spills, and the abrasion of clothing. Our seat covers will not rub or damage your seats.

What are the returns & cancellation terms and conditions?

These are custom seat covers, sewn one-at-a-time, just for you. We cover hundreds of vehicles and stock dozens of fabrics. Seat covers are non-returnable, except in the case of manufacturing defects or error. A 50% restocking fee could be applied upon return at managements discretion. Your satisfaction is our utmost concern. If part of a set does not fit to your satisfaction, we will either alter that piece, or build you a new, redesigned piece, at our discretion, and after consulting with you.

Is Cordura waterproof?

Durable and Waterproof 
Cordura® Durability

Cordura® is 
2 times more durable than standard nylon 
3 times more durable than polyester 
10 times more durable than cotton duck

Waterproof demonstration- Here we are pouring water into a bowl lined with the Advantage Wetlands Camo® fabric. As you can see in the second image, no water has gone through the fabric

durability_001 durability_002

Cordura® Nylon is rugged and waterproof. Water will stand in a pool without dripping through.

(Durable Water Repellency (DWR) fabric coating is partly responsible. This coating can lose some of its effectiveness through laundering or abrasion from clothing. In our glass bowl demonstration (see above), if we scratched the fabric at the bottom of the pool of water with our fingernails, water would begin to ooze through.)

One customer called us with a real-life example. He and a buddy left their pickup to set goose decoys. A dog was in the cab of the pickup. The dog knocked over two coffee containers, spilling on the SuperHides seat covers. When the hunters returned, they mopped up the mess and returned home. They removed the seat covers. No coffee had soaked through even though the seat covers were over a year old.
