Just ordered a Forester X so I'm looking for some seat covers to protect the cloth seats.

I realise that you need something that allows the side airbags to deploy, and it looks like there are a few options out there - but I just wanted to check if anyone knows how high on the side of the seat the bags exit?

I'm in Australia and am looking at these:
Water proof seatcovers, The Wet Seat, car seat covers

They look similar to the wetokole ones you get in the states? But in the picture on that page there is a section of the cover high on the side that crosses between front and back - I'm trying to work out whether that would be an obstruction or whether it is high enough to be out of the way?

I've done a fair bit of searching on the forum and found this pic:

Hard to tell with the seatbelt where it is though...

Thanks

Seat Covers

Hello, we have just purchased a new forester and we too are looking for covers, mainly for the rear seats where the kids sit.

So just wondering what you ended up with and can recommend?

Regards

Phil

I have sourced locally a store that makes the covers imitating leather for 385.
Includes all the seats, steering wheel and center console.
Dual tone and fabrics to choose....
