Your Outback is your adventure capsule, and you’re ready to take on the world in its sultry curvature.
But alas, your mortal enemy has appeared and it threatens to harm the interior of your wagon.
Seat covers are here to save the day, and your back from any ailments that try to get in the way!
There are plenty of great choices for the Outback, both universal and custom fits.
So let’s take a look at the 5 best seat covers for your Subaru Outback:
1. Gorla Premium Universal Fit Waterproof Car Seat Cover
Gorla makes an extremely popular seat cover that just works.
This is made of neoprene which is the same fabric that scuba divers use. It helps these covers repel water.
In fact, you’ll see that type of fabric pop up a lot with seat covers!
Why do we like the Gorla? The main thing in our opinion is that it’s an easy install and simple. This is all one piece of fabric. You just plop it down over your seat and tie it at the back, then you’re done. It’ll take most people a couple of minutes to get it sitting proper.
They have three color options as well. This does offer slight padding, but it’s one piece of fabric. If you want something with more pleated padding, our number 3 option will meet that need.
But, back to the Gorla. This is our favorite cover for a single person, or if you just need covers for the front seats. They offer a lifetime money back guarantee. And that’s something most companies, especially ones with seat covers will not put out there!
So if you want liquid/abrasion protection for your seats, this is our favorite choice.
2. LUCKYMAN CLUB Car Seat Covers fit Sedan SUV fit for Impreza Outback Crosstrek Forester Legacy Toyota Tacoma Rav4 Corolla Camry Prius Fj Cruiser (Full Set, Gray)
This is the high price fancy cover option of the list! Luckyman Club makes faux leather slip ons that will fit your Outback.
The linked set is for front and back. But you can just get a 2 piece set for the front if you wish.
These come in five color combinations as well.
To keep these in place you’ll have to use their included anchor. Installation is a bit more involved than other options. But for a tight fit, it’s worth it we think. Are these the best value? Well, in our opinion they’re not. They’re pretty pricey.
But they’re pleated and offer more padding than other options. And just by the nature of faux leather, it will repel water.
3.IVICY Car Seat Cover Protector Cushion - Car Seat Protector - Car Seat Cushion - Premium Covers for Women, Men, Girls, Boys - Fits Most Cars, Truck, SUV, or Van - 1-pc
Do you want more padding, but would also like cash remaining in your wallet?
That ground breaking strategy might lead you to buying the IVICY car seat protector. It does not cover the full width of your seat, so it’s airbag compatible.
And it does cover what matters, your back!
The pleated stitching and extra padding will be welcomed. And installation includes hooks for the mid and bottom of the cover. Fro the top, you just sling it over your headrest.
They have a surprisingly large selection of choices when it comes to colors, at eight. This is a one piece set, and we think it’s a pretty good value.
4. FH Group FB085BLACK114 Seat Cover Neoprene Blend Waterproof Seat covers Full Set with Bench Black
FH Group specializes in after market universal seat covers. And this full bench set is waterproof and a great price.
They have a huge selection of colors as well. Velcro and straps is the way this adheres to your seats.
There is a layer of foam material stitched to the fabric to offer some decent padding for these. What’s the thing we like most about these? They’re machine washable.
Even though they’re waterproof, you’re still going to want to wash them once in a while. And it’s nice that you can do that with these. For families or someone looking for a full cover set, we think this is a great choice.
5. VIEWPETS Bench Car Seat Cover Protector - Waterproof, Heavy-Duty and Nonslip Pet Car Seat Cover for Dogs with Universal Size Fits for Cars, Trucks & SUVs
The pleated stitching offers some comfort and this is a great option for someone with kids that think the back seat is a food fighting arena. Of course the original intent is for pets, but it will work for both.
This is a waterproof heavy-duty option that you’ll be able to keep for a long time. The thousands of positive reviews make it one of the most trusted choices for car seat covers available online.
How do I keep the interior of my car clean and safe from crumbs?
The answer to this question is simple! A portable vacuum is your friend. If you don’t want to use the free ones available at many car washes, then there are affordable portable vacuums you can plug right into your cigarette port.
One of the most popular models is the Hotor, with very good reviews.
I stained my seat, what’s the best way to get it out?
Soap, water, and abrasion! If this combo doesn’t work, try using water at a higher temperature if you can. For the vast majority of stains you don’t need to buy any other products. But, if you do want a specific fabric cleaner for seats then Bissell is a great spot remover. And it’s cheap!
Hopefully, this guide has helped you pick out some car seat covers for your Subaru Outback. There are lots of choices available, and we hope you find one perfect for your situation.
If you have a family, then getting a full set like this one from FH Group is probably the best choice. But for one or two people, we think the Gorla Covers are great for preventing stains. Although they don’t have the most padding!
