Need a rear seat barrier like this but a **** of a lot cheaper!
This thing is seriously overpriced.

Honestly I don't think those prices are all that bad assuming the quality is decent. Those attic nets are kind of interesting, but with my ivory interior anything I would put up there would quickly make the headliner look like crap.

I agree. Price is reasonable. The only way it's going to get significantly cheaper is DIY .

But it might stop that case of Corona Beer in the back from smacking you in the head if you get in a wreck.
That'll help when you're rushing out to buy large quantities and driving like a madman... 70 day supply left.

Prices on those don't look terrible. If you want to see expensive, go to their "nets by size" section and browse some of the sizes for a universal fit one.

Those are pricey but they claim to be made of premium materials and made in USA. If I had an explicit need for such high quality products, I'd suck it up and buy it....it will hurt a bit but there is truth in the saying: buy quality once, cry once.

Agree with the others, prices do not seem unreasonable.

I am not sure of your use for that, but my dog would chew through that like my dog chews through any heavy duty harness or leash. I would be p*ssed because it is not inexpensive. Just keep that in mind if you have a chewer.

I just do not want a repeat of an incident my friend and I had long ago in a 1984 Mustang GT fastback. Just two guys without a care in the world, rear seat folded down and a very large, very full craftsman metal toolbox 🧰

I’ve actually pulled the trigger on a few of their products and so far I’d say they were worth it. It’s big money but they are nice! Haven’t used any for the outback yet.

the bane of driving a hatchback vs. a sedan. = in a sedan you can X the rear seat belts and hold back the world. (or at least 500#s of fat americans)

"hold onto bubble...the empty tool box"

Then you don't want to go cheap... 🙄

This brought to mind the old Bell ad for motorcycle helmets from the 60s or 70s I believe.

If you have a $10 head, buy a $10 helmet. If your head is worth more, buy a Bell

What a blast from the past! I had owned a white fiberglass Bell 500 helmet for quite a while before I ever owned a motorcycle.
