The Discovery II is among the most popular Land Rovers for off-roading and overlanding. Hard use and extreme conditions will leave its mark on the handsome interior, especially those upholstered in leather. The key to preserving their appearance is fitting a good set of seat covers.
Knightsbridge Overland manufactures custom seat covers for a variety of Land Rover vehicles, now including the 1999-2004 Discovery II. Available separately in front or rear sets, these heavy-duty covers are made to order in the USA using 600 Denier Cordura fabric. Available in black, gray or tan, they’re resistant to damage from water, oil and UV light as well as sand and dirt. Standard covers include pockets on the front and rear for convenient storage.
Another option is the company’s Tactical Seat Covers. Based on the standard covers, the tactical line includes additional military-style MOLLE (modular lightweight load-carrying Equipment) webbing that can accept a variety MOLLE-compatible accessories, including firearms.
“Discovery II owners have been asking us to design a high-quality seat cover that both protects their existing seats and also revitalizes seats that have worn over the years”, states John Edelmann, founder, of Knightsbridge Overland. “Our new Discovery II seat cover line offers the best of all worlds as it protects, enhances and adds tremendous functionality to the D2 interior – without the expense of reupholstering or seat replacement”, says Edelmann.
