I got the (Charcoal) Ballistic Seat Covers for my 2003 S10 Extended Cab. I've been using them for about 2 weeks now. The first thing that caught my eye is the material has a very shiny quality to it. I don't know if I just got used to it or they're getting a little broken in but it is not so noticeable now. Also the Charcoal Grey seems more like regular grey and I read in another review the regular grey was very light, so I expected that and I'm glad I went a little darker. The material is a little thinner than I expected but seems durable enough. When I read ...nylon with rubber backing I was expecting that durable backpack type of material that's rubberized on the inside but it's more like the lighter shinier backpack material. And I cant see how good the rubber backing is because it has felt-like stuff covering it, but I imagine thats good so it won't scuff your original seats (which mine are mint). I did not notice any substandard stitching as I had read in other reviews. The fit is about as good as I could imagine it being without being the wetsuit material. The straps that go under the seats are not all in the best positions, some right where the seat rail is, but I must say they have been doing their job holding the covers in place without any bunching or anything. Even the cover on the armrest/console is looking good. And I do like having map pockets now which my OEM seats did not have. I should also add that you have to add your own hole for the lever on the upper seat, but you can still operate it when it's under the cover. The lever on the lower seat is not covered. All in all I'm satisfied, I do really llike them but I was expecting a little thicker material. I think my backpack analogy reall nails the material for anyone wondering. Would I buy them again? I really don't know of, nor have I seen any better... or even as good. And I did quite a bit of googling. You could argue that the wet suit/ neoprene material is better but that stuff looks and feels corny to me.
So yes... would buy again, and would recommend.
