asked questions about the DrySpot
the perfect gift for the hard to buy for person.
Can you provide a quick overview of The DrySpot
The DrySpot Surf Towel is a universal sports towel with one side made of terry cloth for wiping sweat, dirt, rain or mud off, with the other side made of waterproof breathable layer (nylon type) to keep your seat dry and protected from moisture. The
DrySpot Surf Towel is easy to install. Simply slip on/off over any boat, airplane, car, truck, chair or any type of seat, in just seconds.
Just what is the DrySpot Surf Towel?
The DrySpot Surf Towel is a towel made to universally fit any type of seat or chair.
What Is The DrySpot Surf Towel Made Of? What Makes Them Waterproof?
The DrySpot Surf Towel is a patented product, that combines three different fabrics, the most important is a waterproof breathable layer (nylon type). Terry towel, waterproof, breathable and top decorative panel.
1. One side of the towel is terry cloth
2. The other side is the waterproof breathable layer. This allows you to dry yourself off and have a wet terry cloth side, yet not get any moisture on your car seat.
3. At the top of the towel is a 'pocket,' made of colorful tropical printed fabric, that fits over the headrest of your car, truck, boat, airplane or just about any seat you have. Top fabric change frequently, usually people let me know if they like a more subtle design as a batik (pictured in green on website) or
Hawaiian fabric (more flowery) also on website.
We are no
longer offering custom sizes or bench seats covers as of February 2003.
Does your product fit bucket seats, boat seats, any type of seats?

It takes 3-5 seconds to install the DrySpot
Surf Towel. Simply place the top of the DrySpot
Surf Towel over the head rest or top of any seat, and you are ready to go.
What Colors Are Available For The DrySpot Surf Towel? Can I pick the color of my towel? Is there a choice of prints?
You can select the color of the terry cloth side. The DrySpot
Surf Towel comes in 3 colors: dark blue, tan or charcoal gray (terry cloth towel).
The waterproof breathable layer (nylon-Goretex type) is matched in color to towel.
The top panel comes in a bright array of tropical prints and patterns, some of which are featured on our web site:
http://www.DrySpot.com There is a constant variety of printed and patterned material, that is always changing. You can specify a color or style, but we cannot guarantee an exact print or pattern. Top fabrics are usually Hawaiian, or a basketweave type as seen on web site. Patterns change frequently, however the criteria is within this range: subtle or hawaiian floral; as they are done in limited runs. No one has ever complained about the combo. Just let me know if you like it more toned down or more floral.
I am looking for a unique gift for a hard to buy for person. Does this make a perfect gift?
Yes, because it can be used on any type of seat or chair, even the toughest person to buy for, who has everything, does not have this perfect gift.
Can you give me a few ideas of how people use the
DrySpot Surf Towel?
1. Running: Recreational and marathon runners keep it in their car. They use the terry cloth side to dry themselves off, and then drape the
DrySpot Surf Towel over their car seat, to protect sweat and dirt from getting on the car
2. Volleyball: One of our satisfied customers wrote -
>I play a lot of volleyball here with a bunch of different people who hate getting their seats all dirty, and now we all have your surf towel. It works great for beach volleyball.<
3. Snowboarding: Sopping wet and cold is no problem...
4. Surfing (my favorite): No need to change. Just keep your wetsuit on and hit the road.
5. Incontinence. No more messy accidents to clean off upholstery.

How can I use the DrySpot Surf Towel with my pet dogs?
A customer wrote: >> I have two dogs that travel with me were ever I go. Unfortunately my new car has leather seats. Will your
DrySpot Surf Towel protect my front passenger and back seat<<
I responded: >> I also have a swimming, rolling in the sand, you name it kinda DOG as well - Molly! The
DrySpot Surf Towel was designed with her in mind, the towel is a seat cover for my car seat, as it is easy to remove, wash/dry & throw back on. I never go anywhere without it! <<
Another customer wrote: >> I'm looking for something that will cover the back seat of a 2000 mustang convertible that is easily removable because I only need it when the dog is in the car. I need it to be easily removable but also secure when in use because I've tried throwing down towels in my other car and the dog moves them away. Also with the top down on the convertible, I wouldn't want it to blow away. I can't tell if your covers are only for the front seats or if they will fit a back seat as well. <<
I responded: >> Backseats are always a custom fit. The requirements are specific to the make and model, seat belt access, etc. Call or e-mail for specifics.<<
Can you ship overnight?
Yes, I can ship overnight, usually through the Post Office.

day at my favorite surf break.

Yes. The first price break is at 6 units, the next break at 12 units. For information and pricing, just email or call me :)
What about shipping costs?
There is a $4.95 s&h cost for each DrySpot

Can you do custom seat covers? How about back seats or bench style front seats?
Yes, custom seat covers are available, including back seats. I do custom bench seat with zipper for seat belt access.
Custom work requires prepayment.
All I would need are measurements: across length, height, latches, seat belt access etc. As much as you can give me. The waterproof and ease of removal makes the
DrySpot a perfect choice, I use mine every day for my dog. It's saved my seats!
Please note that custom work is much more labor intensive and results in a higher cost :)
Do you make custom seat covers for airplanes?
A customer wrote: >> I need seat covers for a 1960 Piper Comanche Airplane. It is a weird request, but I thought you might be able to help me out.<<
I wrote: >>Yes I have made many airplane seat covers. The unique surf towel is easy on/off use. All I need is the specs (measurements of
seat: width,height etc.) The surf towel is a universal fit, however I can customize for tighter fit.<<
