Back car seat cover

23 posts in this topic

Hello

I have a Border Collie. I got a back car seat cover from ebay. It does not sit taut and Toby does not like it as it moves about when he moves. I have a Subaru XV. Can anyone suggest a good back car seat cover?

Thanks

Gerri

There is a hammock style one from Kurgo (brand) that fits an XV perfectly ( I had one) . Can get them at pet shops for under $100 usually.

Try putting a piece of that rubber no slip matierial under it .. i find that helps to prevent the seat protector (back seat buddy in my case)  from sliding about so much.

Our Backseat Buddy only lasted about 4 years. We currently have one from a brand I can't remember. It has non-slip backing and tabs that get shoved between the bench and backrest cushions to keep it in place. It is quite good.

Just annoyed I can never find a seat cover to actually attach properly with no rear headrests [just moulded ones as part of the seat].

Thanks @Thistle the dog have ordered the one you suggested.

 

We have a Subaru Forester and the backseat buddy slides around terribly.  Hopefully this one will be better.

Just make sure to tuck all the bits into the corners so nice and flat and even, but I've had no issues with mine sliding around once it had been fitted for no loose spots. 8 months and going strong.

From the Orvis website here.  I bought the grip tight windowed hammock seat protector in the hope it wouldn't slip around as much - and it doesn't.  And the window allows for much better air c irculation - particularly on hot days.  And it was much cheaper than my original back seat buddy.   Love it.

Yes I was looking at the windowed one but it is an American website...Do they ship to Australia??  We are getting a new (2nd) car & really want to keep it clean

I really like that one with the mesh window.  However they want almost $70 A in postage to ship to Australia :(  We are getting a new car so I want to get a good cover to stop the border collie hair getting all over the carpet.  I gather the Hammock style ones would help stop the hair falling on the carpet.

Sheena the trick to buying anything from OS is to work out the sweet spot for postage and to buy a number of items for the same postage in the same parcel - The postage is always expensive in AUD and its not exactly cheap here either.  AusPost prices are terrible as well.  But I usually find that the OS goods themselves are cheaper and so it usually works out in the end.  For example, if I buy a couple of shirts from Lands End in the US, the postage spread across three items is a stack cheaper than buying the equivalent product here. 

 

When it comes to seat protectors, I think the Orvis ones are very well priced for the quality compared with the expensive rubbish available here. So it then becomes a question of deciding if you want to suck up the postage. :)   When I bought my Orvis mesh back seat cover, IIRC I also bought a cover for the lounge which made the postage more palatable.

I have the best cover ever and had been searching forever.

im in Melbourne not sure where you are? It’s called sling guard.

www.slingguard.com.au

soft plush on one side which feels amazing and hair just wipes off, the other side is made from surf board cover material for wet days beach etc. has zip down middle so you can wash sectioned as it wouldn’t fit in machine whole.

the lady fitted it to my car and it’s perfect .
