Hi All,

Lets keep this group buy rolling. I've contacted Miles from Ketzal Bags who makes a very slick full leather rear seat organizer that I've been wanting. He has agreed to offer a 20% discount if we reach 10+ buyers. If you're interested, post here and I will send over the list to Miles once we hit 10 buyers.



I love that it attaches to the headrest with metal eyelets

2 color options to choose from in this group buy (sorry, he is currently sold out of Black/Grey):

Original

Double Coffee

Description
A balance of big and small pockets provides enough space and variety for all your stuff without overloading the Ketzal. You can fit walkie talkies, a 40oz hydroflask, maps, a couple books, telephone and camera chargers, a knife, a flashlight or mini-lantern, or whatever other doodads you have floating around. We also added two rings on both sides, which are reinforced as well. These are for people who wish to attach the Ketzal to their arm rests without the band, to hang items off, or for a backup down the road if the elastic stretches.


Product Features

    Fits ALL model years & RECARO seats
    Handmade from 100% genuine leather
    Waxed polyester double-stitching
    Heavy duty elastic band (optional use)



Installation
There are three attachment points to the seat to ensure it doesn’t sag or swing while underway. Two metal rings, which you slide the head rest through, support it at the top. There’s a single minimalistic elastic band in the middle designed to hold it tight without interfering with the passenger’s comfort. And, at the bottom, there’s two straps to cinch it to the seat’s hinges.

Here is a link for more info and pics:

Price
Normally – $175.00
With Discount – $140

I'm in for 1, so we need 9 more.

Damn, that two tone brown one is beautiful! Bad timing for me, unfortunately.

I own the all-coffee one, and while any seatback organizer is going to add functionality, this one is well thought out and really classy to boot.

Yeah, I was surprised at the lack of interest. I know it's a luxury item but I'm on my second $40 one that still is clunky and doesn't quite fit the seat. I was stoked to find this organizer.

Maybe there would be more interest when he gets the Black/Gray back in stock?

I want one, but I'm in the uk, if he'll post it to me for $20 I'd be happy!

I think that middle strap is kinda funky, but website says:
-Heavy duty elastic band (optional use)

So I'm in for Original Brown/Burgundy.

The prototype didn't have that, but people asked for it so he added it on. We tried it for a long drive and found it uncomfortable after a while to sit against, the seat backs are too "buckety". Reinstalled with it off (the original design), and it looks better that way. The minor bit of looseness it has in the middle is a non-issue for us, but to each their own and that's why the designer added that crowd request.

Yeah makes sense. Too much curve.
Well it looks like you've got either two or three depending on shipping costs to our Brexit hombre.

This is an awesome idea.
Too bad for me, I went with a MOLLE-based solution for this problem.
I also found MOLLE-based flat panels for the cabinet doors (Reimo).
Living near an Army base (plus my own leftover gear) means I can find any pouch I might need.

Point: Not to rain on the OP's parade
My feelings exactly.

Given my feelings towards the Military (I ETSed in '04.....), I would have LOVED to fill my personal space with NON-Military gear.
However, I needed, and it was available.

Had I the option, I would have preferred to use the OP's offerings.
They look great, and the Craftsman looks like he knows what he is doing.

I like the idea as well, a good backup if this group buy doesn't make it to 10. We're in for 5 now so it's a slow roll but we're half way there!

Only made it to 5 (4 if they won't ship to UK). Maybe more will chime in soon!

It's almost tax return time.

Count me in. It's only money!

I wanted one and thought others would want it more than I did so I didn't jump in initially.
