Yesterday I wrote about a road trip with Ruby last fall, and since I've just purchased a new car (a 2014 Subaru Impreza - I'm a true Colorado Subaru girl) I wanted to protect those nice new seats from dog hair and dog claws. After much deliberation I chose the reversible Kurgo Loft Hammock seat cover. I felt a nostalgic pull toward the green color because it reminded me of the down sleeping bags we camped with when I was a kid, although I knew I would be more likely to use the grey side to better coordinate with my interior.
The seat cover arrived yesterday - just in time for a trip to visit my horse and the corgis tomorrow! It came in a cute little matching tote bag which I'm sure I can put to good use for dog supplies when we travel. The green is even brighter than I expected, so I definitely wanted that side down, but I love how the piping and straps contrast with the grey.
It was very easy to install and the straps that go around the front and rear headrests have a lot of adjustability. The mini bungee cord that is supposed to loop around the front corners of the rear seats did not work for me, but this is to be somewhat expected for a "one size fits all" item. I wished that there were two zipper slots for the seat-belts instead of one long one, since I use safety harness tethers for the girls, but I understand that would make it less universal. The fabric is heavy duty, waterproof, and seems as if it will be easy to clean. I like the fact that the backs of the front seats are also protected, and the hammock style will keep the dogs from standing on the armrest or jumping on the floor. Anything I store behind the front seats will be nicely covered.
Although it changed the pristine interior of my new car (is anything pristine when you live with dogs?) I think the seat cover looks pretty sharp and will serve its purpose of keeping red and white hairs off of my upholstery and providing a comfortable, safe place for the girls to ride. Ruby hopped in for some modeling and the ginger sisters will be traveling in style on our next trip!
