What is the Recaro fabric like?

I've seen the ProSport in the "Misty" (gray) color, and it's like a microfiber/suede. Is the fabric on the other colors the same as this, or are some colors different (a few of the images look like the fabric is a different texture)?

If you have a Recaro seat, what type of fabric is it and do you think it wears well? DS is very hot natured and tends to sweat in his seat, especially if he falls asleep, so I'm wondering if the microfiber fabric might be too hot for him and if the other might be cooler.

Does anyone have an opinion?

We have a prosport is envy. It's different fabric than misty. Here's what I found online to describe it:

"Midnight is a plush microfiber fabric, Blue Opal and Envy are SoftPoly cotton polyester, Misty is a microsuede, and Hanna is teteron."


The green definitely shows dirt but I'm okay with that. Dd never complains of being hot, even when we were in the humid NC summers.

Thank you. What is teteron?

And any idea which type the Blaze (red) and Riley (purple) are? The Riley looks like it has gray parts of microsuede, but it's hard to tell if the rest of it is the same.

I've never heard that term before, but my PS started out dressed in Hanna, so I'm assuming it's a slick, nylon-like fabric. I loved the Hanna. It's shiny and wipes easily. I just have a boy riding in the PS.

The green of the Envy feels like a man's cotton dress shirt to me. It has held up well for us, and seems to watch pretty well.
