So I've seen these pop up a couple of times. I've read a review or two, but what does zombie squad think? Cheap gimmick? Epic space utilization?

I can find these seat covers for under $90, a little steep considering seat covers go for under $40 at wal-mart for something "stylish", but each cover allegedly comes with seven molle pouches. I'm thinking I could replace much of my cars GHB with these, and even designate one for my partner as she is my most common passenger. I can also picture adding a water bottle pouch since my cars cup holders don't fit my camelbak.

So anyways Zombie Squad, looking for some input.

... and according to Google I've created a duplicate thread, I apologize, but you try searching zombies quad for any title including "molle"

They look sweet and definitely would add storage space to my truck but I don't know about using it to replace the GHB. Part, if not all, of the point of my GHB is having something I can grab in a hurry if I have to hoof it. Be it broken down vehicle, impassable roads, check points set up by an invading army. If you put all of your GHB gear into these pouches then you either have to undo them all or drag the whole seatcover with you.

I saw these when they were displayed at SEMA and thought they were pretty sweet..

Smittybuilt offers seat covers, overhead storage covers, and tailgate covers in their G.E.A.R. line as well.. just a little pricey for me.

edit: heres one of a rear seat as well:

Maybe I'm dumb, but I'd be more inclined to buy a vest or plate carrier to sling over the seat. Then I wouldn't have to detach anything from the seats, I could just throw on the vest/carrier and poof, instant GHV. That'd only work for bucket seats though, and the "back" would have to have nothing on it for comfort while driving.

Geppato, that's awesome, it will work perfect in my FJ. My brother has the smiddy built ones in his jeep and they work great. They just wont work in my toyota.

For any of the other FJ drivers out there check these out.

Since I own a Jeep with a rag top these (IMHO) are a bad idea. Everything is neatly packaged for a thief to haul out of the jeep in just a few seconds.
Possibly in my Bronco. I still am not comfortable with somebody being able to look in the vehicle, see the seat cover, break in, cut a strap or two and bail with my gear.

I like the out of sight, out of mind storage better.

Or if you're good with a sewing machine, do it the Citizen Simon way.

Yeah, but to work a stiff/strong material like ballistic nylon, you'll need at least a denim sewing machine. Regular sewing machines are only good for plain cloth.

True, but if you were spending a day or two off road, when you wouldn't be far away from your vehicle, they would be cool to keep things close at hand....
