I would take the original seat into a boat upholstery place and talk to someone who has done bike seats before. I live in a small city of 100 000 people and there are at least 3 shops that will do this, with a price tag of around $80- $150. The guy I go to will put in whatever you want (memory foam, gel inserts, extra padding, reduced padding, a custom cover, etc.) for a pretty cheap price.
You could send it away for $500 and wait two months, but I prefer to talk to and see the person who is actually going to do the work. Support your local shop or don't complain when it is outsourced overseas.
