|We have two Outbacks, and I heavily investigated a barrier for Glacier, Tanuk stays nicely in back but Glacier likes to visit up front and just be a bother. I read probably hundreds of reviews and decided the barrier was a waste unless your dog is pretty well behaved to begin with and unlikely to touch the barrier. Lots of reviews said the barrier would fall over on their dog mid-ride, which is certainly scary. Many said they were flimsy, or damaged the roof of the car. Hence, I ditched the idea.
Anything from a big box store will likely be unsatisfactory. I think your best bet is a really sturdy one from Cabela's or a like store. Be sure to read reviews extensively. I also highly recommend this forum for getting advice for what works for Subies:
Could you possibly make a sturdier tether out of jacketed steel wire from the hardware store with a carabiner attached to both ends. It might take some creative rigging, but worked for us.
