Car seat covers aren’t something most guys dream about for their favorite car.
They often look juvenile and cheap, like they’re covering a gaping hole or mysterious stain on the driver or passenger’s seat. Perhaps they bring back visions of your first girlfriend’s car — faux sheepskin fabric shedding over your clothes like a mangy stray cat—which, while a fun memory, doesn’t inspire you to actually put them in your current ride.
But if you’re a guy who plays sports, who camps, or who just carries a lot of gear with him on the road and needs to stay organized, then we’ve found some car seat covers that could actually save your life.
Smittybilt GEAR Seat Covers are specifically designed for outdoor enthusiasts, and come jam-packed with handy pockets for storing all your stuff. Whether you’re tackling a weekend trail or heading out on safari, these are a must-have.
Engineered from 600 Denier Polyester with a PVC liner for extreme durability, these covers are completely adjustable, so they fit your seats without shifting. But the real appeal is their 7 storage pouches, perfect for holding your canteen, buck knife, balls, gloves, map, binoculars — you get the idea.
What’s more, each compartment is completely removable, thanks to the military standard Molle/Pals restraint system. If you want ‘em off, great, but they will also stay stuck place, even on the harshest road conditions.
GEAR Seat Covers are available in a variety of colors, and they’re UV-resistant for long-lasting good looks.
The only thing these car seat covers don’t do is turn into a backpack, making them one step away from being the perfect device for transporting all your gear. Still, with the ingenious way they’re currently designed, that concept may not be far off.
