Pictures attached of what they look like.
Thanks for posting pictures. Like OP, I am considering the WeatherTech and Husky Liners. I currently use Lloyd Mats in my F-150. They gave off an odor for months and months and are very slick when wet.

One question about the Husky Liners, do they have some sort of cover for the retainer clip?

Husky is a real tight fit & cover the area behind the pedals completely. If they went up on the tunnel just a bit more you could not get dirt on any carpet. They cover some areas that I was going to wear out - Under the gas pedal & the dead pedal. I am clumsy & have big feet - I still get a little dirt on the tunnel next to the gas pedal but that is it. You could probably pour a gallon of water in your floor & none would get through. I did not cut out the gas door thing - I just slip a finger underneath. Retainer clip --- They just rise up to trap the little clip under. Still solid no holes & they are not going anywhere.

We have the WeatherTechs in the '14 Forester and the '15 OB and we are pleased with the product.

To me, they both look ugly (those tray-type floor mats), especially, when they get older... But I guess, they serve the purpose in many climate zones.
I have always been using Lloyd's Rubbertite in all my cars - those are the best looking (IMHO) for my climate zone. I get lot of "where did you get those" from people that I haul in my car.

How much did you get them for?

The Husky's have holes for the retainer clips to pop into just like the Weathertech's do.

I have Husky's in my XV Crosstrek and had them in my 4Runner before that. My wife had Weathertech's in her '08 Outback but we just got Husky's for her new 2015 Outback. As previously mentioned the Weathertech's are nice mats but don't come up high enough for me in the back. The Husky's were about $60 less than the Weathertech's too which made the decision easy. Can't go wrong either way though.

Owned the Weathertech's for less than 2 weeks and returned them due to coverage and gap concerns.

Purchased the Husky's on Ebay for a third less and have not been disappointed. The $60 difference paid for the seat back protectors.

I have the Huskys and am very happy with them, primarily due to coverage.

I think the weathertechs look better, though.

Huskys are also cheaper, a plus for them.

hmmm - I am going to look at these.
You are right - they dont look quite as nice... I keep my carpeted mats in the rear under the cargo tray so I can quickly swap in a pinch when I want my car to look a little nicer up front like when going out for the evening or something.

I've only had Huskys, but then I've only needed two pairs over the past 18 years. First in the SUV I traded for the OB, now the Subie. If this set holds up like the last, then I won't do anything else. My previous cargo liner held up to ski boots, dogs, landscape rocks, you name it.
