    How to protect the rear seat backs?

    One of the reasons I purchased a hatch was for the option to carry more stuff. But now I'm looking at the clean cloth on the rear seat backs and am growing fearful of dropping them down and putting boxes and bags on top of them. I know subaru offers the rubber cargo tray for protecting the floor, but is there anything I could use to protect the backs on my rear seats?

    I just use a drop cloth or a towel. I haven't seen anything specifically made to cover the seats

    I used a nice silver tarp for a while and it worked pretty well. I recently bought new seats for another car and used the wrx to transport them. I don't think I had the tarp, but I had a blanket or something. I thought I was careful with them but still ended up ripping the cloth just a little bit. ooh well

    Towel works perfectly and doesn't take up space.

    It was recommended to me by a leathersmith(?) to use hand cream on all my leather (shoes, jackets, bags) so I would assume it would work just as well on seats. Obviously I would try a spot first to make sure there is no staining.

    I keep a moving blanket laying flat in the back and unfold it onto the seat backs when they are down. There is a JDM option for rubber mats that attach to the seat backs like the cargo tray.

    JDM seems to get all the cool bits. Oh well, still very thankful subaru sells here, else I would be without my beloved WRX.

    Thanks everyone for the advice...and hand cream tips

    When I had my Xterra I folded the seats down all the time for the dogs. Eventually put down some fatigue matting and some industrial carpeting. Just used from heavy duty velcro but the seat backs were plastic, not sure how I'm going to do that with the WRX but I'm looking at CoverKings or Wet Okole.

    I have an 8 month old black lab mix with grey hound, she does not sit down on road trips. Anyway I put down a cover over the back seat that I got from petsmart. I have had it on since the second week I own the car and never had an issue with it. Its water proof and pretty thick against dirt and mud. Also my seats look as good as new and never been cleaned.
