    Seat Covers to Stop Leather Burns?

    Anyone have any recommendations on seat covers to help stop leather burns during the summer? Currently I'm just sitting on a jacket, but have any of you come up with better solutions?

    Don't park in direct sunlight? If you do, just man up and sit on the seat.

    WOW- tough crowd
    FWIW- I've got the Alcantara seat inserts so hot seats are not an issue.....Instead of your jacket how about a nice cotton towel in a color that matches you interior....Lay it on the seat and hop in....I've a cousin with a real nice Merc with black leather seating-that's what he does. He couldn't find a cover that didin't look "odd" and he didn't want to spend the cash on a seat re- upholstering....

    Sunshade for parking? That would probably help 90% of the time.

    Even with the Alcantara seats I manage to burn the back of my arm once a week on the side bolster leather or the chrome trim under the window.

    It's part of owning a leather interior. I just deal with it lol.

    My wife always has issues with this. Take off those booty shorts and get shorts that go to your knees.
