Retro WON — Marti Davis Afield: She Likes Marathon Seat Covers for Her Truck

Last year, I purchased a 2012 Ford F150 pickup. I had installed some camouflage SuperHides on the seats of my formerly owned 2003 Ford F150 SuperCrew. The leather seats were still in pretty good condition, but I wanted to do what I could to protect them and to add a little touch of my hunting lifestyle to my ride. I was so pleased with those old Marathon Seat Covers, that I quickly acquired a set for my new truck.

Marathon Seat Covers has been in the custom seat cover business since 1978. All of their covers are made to order for your vehicle from the highest quality waterproof Cordura Nylon. They are available in a variety of solid or camouflage patterns. Marathon strives to make the best fitting custom cover for all of the major truck and SUV makers on today’s market.


The SuperHides seat covers are made of 100-percent waterproof Cordura nylon fabric, which is also very rugged and tough. Waterproof is a definite plus for any truck owner who also is an outdoors enthusiast. These rugged covers are available in 12 different camouflage patterns and 10 solid colors. In addition, Marathon offers console covers, headrest covers and armrest covers.

Here are some of the reasons these covers caught my eye.

  • Custom-fit, not a one size fits all cover
  •  Ease of care – the seat covers can be either hand-washed or machine washed on gentle cycle in cold water and then hung to dry
  • Installation – although it did require a little bit of time, it was not difficult because of the detailed instructions and each piece marked for its intended location
  • Great warranty – for two years to be free from material and manufacturing defects.


I installed my SuperHides immediately after getting my new truck and I have been extremely pleased with the look and protection I am getting from this set, as well.

Custom seat covers can protect new seats, add new life or just give your truck that special touch. Marathon Seat Covers’ motto of “We’ve got you covered” says it all. Visit Marathon Seat Covers.
