Which is why I said, a belt, need not be a waist belt, even the rope (for want of an exact term) that is used to fasten some stuff at the back of the bike.

What supremeBaleno suggested is along the lines of what they call a cargo net. Something like this:

How do you carry stuff in your boot? (Hatchbacks)-cbnett30big.jpg

The same thing can be done along the back of the rear seat.

We get thin nets in hardware shops here in Kerala, referred to popularly as "Well-nets" (translated into English). These nets are used to cover the mouths of wells to prevent leaves and stuff from falling into the well. Similar nets can be used.

Default Use your Car Cover

I usually carry the car cover in the boot and it really comes handy in dampening the rattles from the items in boot. Wrap all your stuff in a polybag and stuff the polybag somehwre in the middle of the car cover. Works pretty good as the car cover is voluminous and fluffy. But helps only if you have a car cover.

My two cents.

for items like polish bottles and other stuffs etc one can use a welcro strip with has two parts that stick to each other and you can strip off one. attach the female part i.e soft ones on the rear of the seat back and put bottles between them and then strap on the belt. a similar ones used to strap the toold kit at the back.

I generally leave it at home, or stuff it around or on top of the spare as it is hollow there. It leaves me with additional space.
