    Default Recommendations for car 'seatback organizers'

    Lots of choices out there, can anybody recommend a particular brand/model ?

    I saw some by /Weathertech/; their products seem pretty good, but wanted to post so as to check out other possible options.
    Budget could be generous for a set that would be high quality & built-to-last. But I could certainly consider a 'value' option as well.

    If it matters, it would be for an '04 Subaru Outback (but also perhaps for an '07 Toyota Sienna).

    Thanks in advance,

    I have one in my truck from Duluth Trading Co. that hangs on the passenger seat headrest. They get a lot of my money - mostly clothes since I work outside a lot and wear my work clothes hard. Anyways you could check that one out - I like it.

    Thx for that suggestion; their Seat Back Bunker looks to be a good option.
    Just signed on w/ my email addy for the 10% off on a first order, if/when I do place an order.

    No idea on their seatback stuff, but Duluth getsfrom me.

    Not the most fashionable (lol) but it's crazy how well their clothes stand up to hard use.

    That one looks great! I looked and I have just the basic Mobile File Organizer. Perfect for my needs but for a more expansive system the Bunker looks very good. And very reasonable price too.

    They have come a long way from a couple years ago, constantly expanding their lines for both men and women. Some things I have from them like pants and jackets are built more to work hard than look fancy, but I have some some other items like button shirts, a firehose sports jacket, and and a beautiful merino wool sweater that are downright good looking. (Maybe not NY Fashion Week but for normal people. )

    I donít know how youíre built my friend, but yes they do cater toward a burly construction worker type most of the time. They have started adding some slim fit or athletic fit in addition to their typical relaxed fit if you arenít rocking a burly set of pecs and shoulders. Haha. In a trendy brand I am an XL. At DTC, a large gives me room to move and layer, and a Med if I want a snugger athletic fit. Especially since I dropped a few lbs over the past year or so.

    What was this thread about again? Lol

    Strange... reading this and a Duluth commercial comes on TV!!! I love their products by the way. My dog has 2 of their beds for crimy sake!

    If you want molle attachments...5:11 and Pelican have back of seat organizers.

    Duluth Trading is/was(?) one of the few places that sold pants in 32-36 sizes. The locking carabiner video I made last weekend was made wearing Duluth that was made with the zipper fly too short; got them for a really good price, but Carhartt has superior lower side pockets nowadays, for me at least. What were we talking about? Oh yeah:

    https://store.kryptek.com/catalog/pr...l-seat-covers/

    Choice of Mandrake, Typhon or Highlander for the 04' Subaru Outback. They ask very specific questions about which model you own. The tactical option can't be very comfortable to sit on Cordura fabric for very long... Just wanted to offer up something different. $300+

    Back on topic (lol) do you all leave stuff like that set up in your vehicle ?

    I would be concerned that would not be especially secure.

    Oh I don't own that item referenced, just wanted to show that option. Absolutely love Kryptek camo patterns (oops, off topic again)
    Coverking makes them for Kryptek.

    I've seen visor covers with same PALS style webbing attachments, for smaller items such as seat belt cutters and the like..
    Although gear attached to back of seats is advertising for a break-in, just waiting to happen, imho

    Discreetness is a very valid concern, and probably my greatest; note the current 'loaded' view of the back of my Subaru OB micro-camper:

    Perfect stealth arrangement 👍

    ...and kudos to you being a Subaru owner!

    I drive a '15 Forester XT 2.0 Enjoy every minute behind the wheel on the open roads (-;

    Duluth has been spamming me with qty.2 emails every day since I provided it to them 5 days ago; crazy.
    Hard to believe that they think people want so many from them.

    They come with good sales offers. If you want certain things just watch for a few days and youíll probably get an email with a good deal on those things or a storewide sale.

    I'm not sure about Duluth but few other online companies give options to regulate the amount of spam received weekly, or monthly, etc

    I've found that sometimes when i cart items, and then decided wait til i research more sources for best prices, I'll receive a discount code usually only 10% to entice the sale.. but sometimes better than a poke in..

    Just unsubscribed; I don't have the patience to stay on their list in the hopes of scoring a sale price - honestly, who wants these ?

    Roger that Kestrel, it's a PIA receiving too much junk!

    Worse spam fallout came after purchasing from Aliexpress. Those muthas sold my email address to every bs online site in China. I'd get 30-40 daily, one week received over 200.. Thankfully I did not use my main email addy.. Live and learn

    Btw, don't peek into any of their mail as that will automatically put you back on their mailing list

    Years ago, I had to contact Duluth Trading to stop sending catalogues in the mail; too many.
    Sadly the 10 pairs of socks I bought from there are no longer offered at Duluth. I use them most every day and will need more soon.

    Thx; but I shouldn't really complain - am certainly retaining their first email with its 10%-off promo code, probably for when I'd order that 'seat back bunker'.

    This company has been reputable with me. Another option for the headrest that looks a little more interesting:
