Snow, Rain, Mud, Dog Fur - The Kurgo Cargo Cape Has You Covered

Winter in the Midwest is unpredictable to say the least. A common joke is that Indiana can experience all four seasons in one Winter week. Except it is not really a joke, it can be reality.

One day can be pristine white scenery with beautiful, white snow.

Then it warms up over the next couple of days and we are left with mud and puddles...

Yuck. I would much rather have snow.
I drive a Subaru Forester. I love my car. I love that my dogs ride comfortably in it, and I love taking them places in it.

You know what I don't love? Mud on the carpet of the cargo area. Drool spots. And fur that seems to be magnetically attracted to the cargo carpet of all cars.

I've tried putting down blankets. They don't work. They get bunched up, pushed around, and scent-rolled on. (By Faolan of course.)

The people at Kurgo understand the lives of active dogs and their active owners, and make products designed to accommodate them, and make life a little easier, more fun, and more enjoyable.

Do you see those dirty paw prints? Carpet saved!

I'm digging the Kurgo Cargo Cape to protect the cargo area of my Subaru. First and foremost, it is very durable, and waterproof and stain-resistant.

It measures 52" x 62", and seems like it was custom made for my Forester!  I have tried other cargo liners in the past, but none have stayed in position like the Kurgo Cargo Cape does. Not only does it have Velcro, but it also has adjustable loops that fit around the rear headrests, to prevent sliding.

The section that attaches to the back of the rear seats has a zipper down the middle. My back seats fold down, which is how my dogs typically ride. But if I have an extra passenger, and need a back seat up, the zipper allows the Cargo Cape to remain in place, protecting the carpet.

It also has a bumper guard that folds up when the hatch is closed, but protects the bumper when parked with the hatch open.

I really like the neutral, contrasting colors. They fit well with the interior of my particular car, plus the colors match Bruce's coat!

Guess what else this has?!?!

You guys! It has pockets! On either side! More room for dog stuff! The pockets are made of mesh, and Velcro seal, to keep the contents contained. I don't trust my dogs enough to put treats in them, but they are decent sized, and you could put just about anything you want in them.

If you are looking for a cargo cover for a Subaru (or any other vehicle) I say look no farther.

I am confident the Kurgo Cargo Cover will stand up to all my dogs and the elements throw at it. Snow, mud, rain, dog fur or paws, drool, etc. I am impressed.

If only I could find a way to protect my windows from dog drool...

I was provided with complimentary product. All opinions are my own.

How do you protect the interior of your car from your dogs and/or the elements?


  1. We have a similar cargo cover from another company - love it! We have other products from Kurgo, and they are very high quality.

  2. HA, I'm still looking for a solution to my window drool "problem", too :-) The Cargo Cover looks like a great product, and I love that it has extra storage with those pockets. I just recently bought a new car hammock for my Jeep, but I made a mental note re this particular cover (& one not so mental one on Pinterest!).

  3. With the recent market trends one can find, not only the basic edible stuff for dogs, but also dog clothes in a great range and variety to dress your pet who is now one of the vital part of the family. dog shirt

  4. Taking my dog on car rides used to be a messy affair with rain, mud, and fur everywhere. Thanks to the Kurgo Cargo Cape, those days are over! It's like a superhero for my car. Wish finding online law dissertation help was as simple, but hey, just like Kurgo helps outdoors, reliable services can make your academic journey easier.


Thanks for the howls!!
