Default Leather seats make me sweat too much, what alternatives should I pursue?

It's gross to sweat this much day in day out just because my seats are leather, and i'm frankly sick of it.

I priced out switching the seat/lower back portion to suede at around 250-300 bucks for the job, or I could go with a seat cover for around 50.

anyone have experience with reupholstering their seats, or buying a good seat cover? i have no idea where to look to buy a custom one that fits well and looks good. And i assume this is the preferred option, it seems kind of a waste of money to upholster a small section for so much cash.

Just before you go and replace everything...........you sure the heater in your seat isn't on?

damn I hate hitting that switch on accident. I'm tempted to pull the fuse on them for their "off-season".

I use a lower back support pillow. Lets my back breath and it actually feels more comfortable.

Calm down and don't be so sensitive. I live in Florida. It gets hot here. Plus the humidity. I never have had the problem you describe. A towel would be much cheaper and won't ruin the value of your car. No one wants to buy a G with cloth seats.

We welcome new members but we aren't super serious here. We will give you good info if we have an answer. So you have to have a sense of humor. I you don't, all the trolls on Driver will welcome you back.

I've seen a wire frame type of back support thing that is strung with mesh (creates a big air gap) but I'm not sure it's for a car, maybe an office chair. Not sure why it couldn't work in a car seat though. I'd just take a tape measure along or try it for fitment to see where it hits the seat and make sure it does not have any sharp or pointed contact areas that can rip the seat.

As per the OP; Come on back and stay a while but if you just peeled yourself from those hot seats, count to 10 first.
At 6MT, I've found a bit of lighthearted humor a nice ice breaker and yes, I've been to other forums that can feel more 'BallBuster' but thankfully, I live in a state that doesn't get g35driver (lol - jk, couldn't resist)
-The seat heat rocker switch can easily be hit by accident and it was an insightful possibilty...
-Naked seating was more a rhetorical point in my opinon. IOW, consider what you wear or how you can dress to better the situation. I do that now and it helps.
Maybe I just plain missed the three jokes although I favor joking around to rude, sarcastic or smartass responses, but that's just me.

Just back from vacation in the Seattle area.
No issue up there with sweat! About mid 60's every day. Ahhhhh!!

I agree with Gilley, use some tericloth seat covers or a towel but don't ruin the lady. She only looks good in fine leather!

I don't know if it exist but it will be cool to have a kind of A/C air coming from the back of the seat OR only a kind of vent?

I agree. I find it annoying myself, how sweaty my back gets in CA after a decent drive.

my car says its 104

the seat is bearable. just put your left elbow on the door with the AC vent blowing in your sleeve. lean forward a bit and your shirt fills with AC.
