front seat back pockets

anyone know of where to get such a thing for my 03 X?

i like to stow stuff in there, instead of on my floor and back seat...

I'm sure they make stuff that can hook on the headrest and hangs, I've seen them before.......and pretty cheap..

Or you can scoop up my 08 FXT seats when I pull them out in a few weekends

You can drive over and we'll install them.......

Yeah, basically you have 3 options:
  1. Get aftermarket add-on pockets that attach/tie to the seat at the top and bottom
  2. Get forester seats that have pockets
  3. Get aftermarket seat covers that have the pockets built-in

1. have not seen any i like (found two or three options looking around locally) either too big (with a flip out desk and such) or too small.

2> possibly the best option...but sorta pricey!

3. looked at the ones made in hawaii...sight unseen i'm unwilling to go that route for $450. and i'm not much of a seat cover guy, except in my 56 plymouth.

I found a OEM leather kit for our 05 X for $50 on EBay. They have seatback pockets unlike the cloth seats on the X. You can find OEM seat covers on EBay all the time. There are always cloth ones for sale because people upgrade to leather, and as long as they are not from an X they should have the pockets.
