The Outward Hound backseat hammock, seat protectorI recently received this seat protector from our new sponsor, Kyjen, who make the Outward hound line of products. Outward Hound is all about getting out and having fun with your dogs, and protecting your car too. When you travel full time like we do, a lot of time is spent in the truck. And that means, when you have a fuzzy dog like Torrey, dog hair, lots of dog hair. The seats in our truck are fabric, mostly because I have a real dislike for leather seats. Admittedly, they aren’t as easy to keep clean. We started out with a packing blanket in the back seat to protect it, that was a mediocre solution since it moved around and they are pretty big to just throw in a washing machine. I then made a seat protector from some canvas I had. I put straps and buckles to keep it in place, this worked a little better, but it was hard to keep in place, and got dirty real fast. And then we got the backseat hammock from Kyjen. It’s made of strong nylon material, has straps to keep it in place, and even has velcro openings for seat belts, or if a person wants to ride in the back. The nylon is super easy to keep clean, the dog hair doesn’t stick to it, so I can just wipe the seat, and that’s it.
The picture on the left, shows the opening that can be undone for a passenger. Or, as the picture on the right shows, there is an opening for the seat belt to go through. This plastic disk thing, not the official word for it I’m sure, goes in between the seat bottom and the back. It holds the cover down in place really well. The seat cover can also be hooked to the front seat head rests to become a barrier between the back and front. We have been thrilled with the Outward Hound backseat hammock, easy to use, easy to clean, and protects our backseat. Be sure to visit Kyjen for more information.
