I'm really pleased with this car seat cover. I've never owned one, but I expected to pay more for this quality. It's machine washable, doesn't look cheap, easily slipped on to the seat, protects all of it (side too) and clips on to the headrests in the front and back. I didn't really think it through at the time, but the flap that attaches to the front seats prevents my German Shepherd from moving to the front when I go into a store. Actually, she likes to use it as a headrest when resting in the back. It's soft for her to sit on, not slippery, but it does absorb water after a romp in the mud or a swim. I'd rather have that than a plasticized cover though! I'd recommend it. I was in a parking lot and someone looked in my window and asked me for details so you know it's not a "typical" cover.
