Default Seeking seat cover recommendation for 2015 911 (991.1)

Any recommendations for seat covers? I'm a big-ish guy and no amount of practice or studied entry/exit techniques has prevented some early wear on the side of the seat back (not the bolster...yet at least). I don't care about how they look, really, and I'm willing to spend $ to protect the seat leather from further wear. Just...some products I used in cars past actually hurt the seat leather more from prolonged contact by the cover material itself.
Thanks
B

Try this technique? I do something like this but use a hand on bolster as I sit so I don't scratch or hit it. Video of technique shows at :55

Or you can do what I did....just use them and when it gets bad have an upholstery shop sew a new piece of leather in place, I paid $ 330 to have it done

FYI the standard (partial leather) seats are vinyl in the impact areas. Mine is now leather and it will wear better. Before and After photos:
