Any PU Leather VRcover users have any opinions...

Has anyone tried the Blue PU Leather facial cover from vrcover.com?

I am in the UK, and they seem to be available from America only, so wondered if anyone from UK had purchased them and from anybody as to whether they are worth the $58 outlay, (As I need to buy the basic facial interface kit as well?)

My original foam is getting a bit smelly after 6 months of use and sharing with various family and friends!! :-s

Thanks

    Double check that—I think all the PU kits come with everything you need. *Edit: I see the one you’re looking at. That’s new, they didn’t used to sell the pads on their own. 

     Anyway, I have the thin PU leather, and I like it a lot better than the original foam interface. I would recommend just getting the basic $29 set, unless you absolutely must have blue. 

    Also, I think it ships out of Thailand, not the US. They just list the prices in US dollars due to the target market.

    Thanks for the comments guys.
    So just to clarify, does the Standard set come with a PU Leather cover already?

    I only mentioned the blue pack as I thought only those extra packs have the PU Leather pads, but if there is one included in the standard pack, I do not need to bother :-)

    Just stick with the standard set as I only use the small leather cover that comes with that one, I also purchased the velour set and Its way to stiff and puts pressure on the side of my face.

    It only took a week to be shipped from Thailand via DHL to the UK and no customs charges.

    The $29 basic set comes with a thin black pu leather cover and a fabric cover, and the $49 standard set includes the contents of the basic set plus two additional pu leather covers in thin and thick sizes.

    I use the thick PU, I prefer it to the thin one. You should defiantly buy from VR cover because not only is it washable, but it produces less sweat in the CV1 because it breaths air much better. It's also 150% more comfortable then the horrible foam CV1 uses right now..

    Just to close this off...

    I went ahead and bought the $49 set which arrived about 6 days later, and have to say I am mighty impressed with the comfort level these bring.

    I can wear my HMD for hours without any discomfort setting in, plus the lens "fogging" is lessened due to the greater nose gap.

    One final tip... I thought I'd prefer the thicker pad, but actually, the thinner one is most comfortable for me,  and the thicker one "tricks" the proximity sensor into staying on permanently, even when you have the HMD sat on the desk, so it stays running hot in that configuration.
