MOLLE webbing on Trek Armor seat covers...what have you attached?

MOLLE webbing on Trek Armor seat covers...what have you attached? I know they come with little bags to weave in the back. Has anyone used the webbing to attach other useful things? I'm new to MOLLE webbing.

Ive got about a dozen "s binder" clips and I use them to clip everything to the seats with them. Window roll duffle, bags of groceries, you name it. Especially comes in handy with no doors and top on to keep things from falling out of the jeep. I wonder what goes through the mind of the people following behind me after a trip to the grocery store when I take a turn and the bags of groceries swing out the side of the jeep.

Really good ideas! Especially clipping the window bag to it instead taking up trunk space! Nice.. Very helpful thanks

Do you think having the bags attached to the back of the seats would attract thieves (even if they are empty)?

Where do you get the bags from? I have a tailgate table that has slots for them, but having trouble finding bags.

Wow! Do you keep all of that in your jeep at all times or just when you go on off roading trips?

Army/Navy stores, cop shops or even amazon.com has MOLLE bags available.

The tan ones came with the seat covers. I ordered the bigger green one from Opsgear.com. Along with the Glock holster
That stuff is in the Jeep at all times. Ready to take off at any time. Along with a GPS, SPOT, maps for 4 states, CB, hammock, blankets, winter clothes, water purifier, backpacking stove, emergency tarp (in the green bugout bag), vehicle recovery gear, Hi Lift, tools, etc., etc.
Colorado weather!!

Might be a dumb question... Sorry. But I have to ask. Do you have all of this "just in case" you are stuck in snow storm etc, or do you use these things regularly?

I have gone on many camping trips and would need many of these things but not for my "daily activities"-- thanks for sharing!

I don't use the stuff daily. But I hunt, fish, hike, backpack, camp, etc. I rotate stuff out on trips. Never know where or when shit happens. I'm just a "prepper" type. Better safe than sorry

I've got a few pouches on mine. In one pouch I keep my shooting glasses, earplugs, and a few other things, for when I am at the shooting range. I also have basic first aid kit, as well as a trauma kit, also for when at the shooting range. The range is a good ways from anything and would take a ambulance a while to get there. So I figured having the trauma kit would be a good idea, if the something terrible would happen. I also have a really nice big hammock back there. It fold up into a nice little ball like bundle and the 2 clips for hanging it, attach easily to the molle.

big pouch on top right is First Aid kit. Trauma kit not in pic, neither is hammock.

Does anyone ever have any issues with these bags and theft? I'd be paranoid to have my stuff swiped even if I left it for just a little bit.

Very nice setup!

Do you find that you only use the upper portions of the front seat because you need to fold the back seats down often?

For anyone here that is new to MOLLE, this tool is invaluable.

Same issue here. Those head rests drive me nuts. It would be nice if the webbing started a little higher up.
I am also using some bags from my old seat covers. Unfortunately, the spacing on the trek armor are much farther apart. I'm not able to weave through as many straps.

Nope. Biometric or Key? I'd love to get a bio one

I bought these bags from Springtail for the back of the front seats that are easily detachable. When the back seats are folded down with the head rests in the way, I can pull the bags off in seconds:

Medium STAT Bag | Springtail Solutions

I have 2 mediums attached to one seat and 1 large on the other seat. I don't keep anything too valuable or heavy in them. Leather gloves, winch cable, bungee cords, first aid kit, rain pouches, a few trash bags, cheap LED worklight, duct tape, zip ties. Basically, small items that I like to carry with me at all times. Valuables go in an underseat lockbox.

I also have a few smaller pouches from Maxpedition that I hang on the sides of the seats that hold stuff like batteries, my wife's hair things (whatever they are called to keep hair from flying with the top down), and other small items. They have all kinds of small pouches, bags, cases for just about everything imaginable:

Tactical Nylon Assault Gear Pouches, Modular Pockets, Admin, Medic, Magazine Dump Pouch

One thing about these trekarmor covers, the rows are too far apart to properly weave some molle gear straps. You can still attach the gear, but they'll be loose.

I'm thinking about putting my old rugged ridge molle pals seat covers on top of these so I can attach the gear the way it's meant to be.

Wish I had a Camera..... I use Surplus Military Bags, I don't have the Molle Seat covers, but I do use the head rests to hang the bags on. Most of the bags hang backwards into the cargo compartment. Leaves the back seat usable for the grand kids...
A change of clothes and shoes is handy in a Jeep...I also have bags with MRE's, First Aid, Rain Gear and an Extra Coat, Survival bag in case I get stranded over night or two.
All my bags have shoulder straps or carry straps so they can be taken on walks out if I have too.
Bags are cheap, but shop around, different surplus dealers will be priced different. and at times you can get multiple bags for one price... like 5 bags for $15.00...
Bags don't rattle, bags can be stuffed into places anywhere there is room, under seats, behind the roll bars, what ever...
I like the Molle seat covers, but for me they restrict the back seat room somewhat.
The pictured set up is good looking, clean storage , stuff close at hand .
Good Job !
Check out these dealers: Sportsman's Guide, Coleman's Surplus, Centerfire Systems,5 Star Military Surplus, RDD USA Military Surplus, Keep Shooting.com, Billings Surplus, just a few I have ordered from and I have not had any trouble with any of em....
Good Luck ! "BH"

I took the backseat headrests out. Can see more in the back and looks better too
