The heavy material is great for our boxer who has big paws and claws. as we have a new SUV, I thought I'd try this product. Not only does it do a great job protecting the upholstery as fr as the dog's concerned, it also PROTECTS it in general. As I have a long commute and sometimes smoke in the car (I know, don't judge, lol), i was worried errant ashes might get on the back seats. With this cover in place, I don't have to worry about it.
And, when you have humans that need to ride in the back seats, all you have to do is unclick the seat ties and you're good to go. The only reason this great product didn't get 5 starts was because it lacked the leash holder option that many other doggy covers have. I would buy again, though!
