There were a number of things I considered when I purchased this seat cover - price is just one of the things. I wanted something that didn't slip and slide around, this one has a mechanism to tuck it into the seat and clip it around the 4 headrests to keep the sliding to a minimum. Two I wanted something water proof - since my dog has water therapy weekly to treat his DM. Next I wanted something easy to install and remove, in case I wanted to invite more than one other human to go with me in my SUV. This seat cover does all of these things at a reasonable price. The only thing I would change is to put a vented panel in the front center so the air conditioning or heat can blow through the fur kids in the back seat during the heat of summer or the cold of winter.
