Subaru cargo organizer: who's got one?

Eyeballing this guy from Subaru Online Parts http://subaruonlineparts.com/subaru-outback-cargo-organizer-p-3731.html

Anyone use, and have pics inside the cargo area?

I read another thread where people said it's only about 24" wide. There's also a Harbor Freight unit that is very similar for $13. Anyone had both?

Nope, but I thought about it until I read amazon reviews (look for subaru cargo organizer), and compared the price to what Bed Bath and Beyond sells for about 10 bucks! So I bought 2 BB&B organizers and couldn't be happier.

Stands on its own empty. Folds really neat. Holds about 1 grocery bag per compartment. Bought 2 to hold 4 bags. No complaints. Saved a bunch of money.

The subaru one is a nice thick material. The side pocket on the outside might be useful, I don't use it. The bottom is a heavy vinyl, so you can set it down on wet surfaces (or stuff that spills in it won't go through the botttom). On each of the compartments, there are fold down flaps that are a hard plastic, so this can carry a bit of weight... the plastic flaps fold up to let the entire thing fold "flat". There are even rubber/plastic feet on the bottom, so the vinyl bottom never touches hard ground.

The side handles are heavy duty enough - I have carried 50lbs in them without issue.

I use mine on a daily basis, for groceries, things I carry to work, ammo, gun range stuff, random trip stuff... the plastic feet - these things don't slip around at all. They're great.

I'd buy them again in a heartbeat.

(side note: I have pretty much stopped reading amazon reviews, as I have found them either misleading or total bunk (YMMV) )

I use these rather than suitcases - I can just toss stuff into the organizers, fold the seats down, and have 3 or 6 of them.... I think you can find the same thing without the subaru logo for a bit cheaper.

Try one - you'll like it.

This one from Harbor freight looks pretty comparable to the Subaru organizer at a fraction of the price.

I'll pick one up next time I have a 20% coupon.

I keep one of the Harbor Freight versions in the trunk of our 2015 Legacy. Compact when folded, and very convenient when opened; it works fine for groceries and other loose lightweight items.

the subaru organizer shown in the links is actually made by thule and is the one to get if you want the best quality, sturdy.
we lucked out and got it from etrailer.com as a closeout 3 years ago. no longer seems to be available as a thule branded item.
I looked around at the time and there are a lot of cheaper organizers but they are obviously made cheaper, ours is 3 years old and shows no wear.
fyi in the cargo area with back seat up, it will take up abt 1/3 of the floor space.

I own both the Subaru organizer and a 36" organizer made by Rola ( bought from etrailer.com ) The Subaru is only 24" wide, while the Rola goes all the way acroos the cargo area.. Both are heavy duty, non-skid bottoms , collaspable with adjustable dividers and handles. The Subaru sides are slightly higher The Rola is a little pricey $60 but its really well made and gives you more storage space
