My Vehicle: 2015 Crosstrek
Default Molle Gear in Crosstrek

Hi Everyone,

I have a question. I like to carry a few things in the car, First aid kit, flashlight, roadside stuff, and I have been looking at different ways of mounting it in the car. I have come to the idea that I like how Molle gear looks. I like to set up something like shown in the images but have not found anything that fits close for the Crosstrek body layout. I was wondering if anyone has seen anything or have heard of anyone doing this?



Thanks

Rich

I do know there is a MOLLE seat cover but I would advise against using any kind of seat cover due to the side airbags residing in the seats.

I'd recommend mounting it away from any airbag deployment areas, otherwise, I love the idea! I got myself a little emergency kit but it resides in the cargo area.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the replies and the information.

AWDfreak, I agree with you. I am looking at doing it all in the cargo area. I think I am going to have to fabricate my own mounting panels to use so that the pouches and gear can mount to it.

Please keep us updated! I may consider doing the same thing since my kit flops around rather than actually being secured (yes I know, not the right thing to do)

I know this is an old post, but figure id add...

I recently have been looking into quality seat covers (necessary as an uber driver). I came across www.coverking.com where they custom make seat covers for vehicles. They are on the pricey side but they do offer a custom made set of Ballistic Nylon seat covers with MOLLE straps for the back of the seats. They come in multiple colors to go with the look of your vehicle and are supposed to be extreme duty and great quality.

I just purchased (still waiting for them) a set of cover king rhino hide seat covers for my crosstrek. I'll post pics and start a new thread when I get them installed.

Forgot to mention: These seat covers being custom made take into account the seat airbags and have break away spots so the air back is not restricted.

Hey guys. I'm new here, first post, but being a gear nerd I was instantly drawn to thus post. There are a few molle pouches such as the ifak style that are made to tear away from a plate carrier so it has a full back side of Velcro which will stick to the carpet material. I mounted a couple of pouches in this manner to my last vehicle. I'll post some pics if anyone's interested. Walt
