Default Fender covers

I am looking for someone who sells fendor covers that are not made of the cheap polyester that tear and loose their shape after a year of use. I have seen boats with covers that look like fleece or velour but can not seem to find them on the web. Any help would be great. We have the fenders that have the molded eyelet at the top and bottom not the ones with a hole that runs through the center.

Polyform makes nice ones. They are about $35 each, but worth it.

I make my own. I've got some made from fleece and some made from Sunbrella. They pretty easy to make, if you know anybody that is half-way decent on a sewing machine they should be able to whip a few out for you for a heck of a lot cheaper than $35 a piece.

I use the Sunbrella ones when against the dock, and the fleece ones when against other boats. I buy the fleece at the fabric store, even made a few out of hawaiian print fabric.

Biggest issue I found in using them is they pick up grit from docks and then grind the grit into your boat. I removed them and tossed them because they were adding scratches to my hull instead of stopping them.
