Today I returned to my car after a long hot run and realized I was without a towel or a dry change of clothes. I had no choice but to let my sweat-soaked body soil my car seat. Since this is not the first time I’ve forgotten to pack a towel, it occurred to me that I should stash a supply in the trunk – or better yet, research options for a properly designed sweat proof seat cover, as I’m certainly not the only runner ever to confront this problem.
Sure enough, an Internet search led me to SeatShield, waterproof and odor proof car seat covers intended to protect your vehicle from sweat, grime and gunk. SeatShields are comfortably soft and come in a variety of styles to suit every budget. (Jaguar sold separately.)
