Just put a set of Husky's in our 2017 2.5 Limited and I'm really happy with the coverage and look of them so far. A substantial upgrade over the factory all-weather mats. Cheapest price I found was $118.96 from SOHi Performance dot com. Super fast shipping from a relatively sketchy looking website.

New Huskys arrived Tuesday, installed them last night. Nice. Decent coverage. Not sure if I'll cut the opening out for the gas cap release or not, I might give it a while then fabricate a cover of sorts to keep dirt and stuff out of there. The mats did fit OK, waiting for a warm day so they can warm up and settle a bit.

Interesting when I got mine two months ago they had the fuel door lever cut out. I guess they cannot make up their minds as I thought I read that they were not cutting them out and then started to cut them out.

Just installed my christmas present! My new Huskys do not have the gas cap release cut out. Overall, I'm happy with the fit. The rear liner especially fits perfectly. I do have a gap in between the gas cap release and the foot rest that I'm hoping will straighten out. It's obviously a little warped from being packaged.

It may look like an OB, but it's driven like a STI.

Interesting. I'm thinking of just cutting 3 sides so I can just open the flap on one end. Easy enough to lift the edge of the mat though.

Thumbs up WeatherTech

Ordered a set of front Weathertechs for my '16 3.6R on Saturday and they were delivered today. They fit snug with no gaps and look to be good quality.

Overall for the one hundred canuckistan rubles that they cost they are a great deal. They are carpeted black so it's not at all obvious that they aren't stock.

I'll try to post some better pictures in the coming days when the lighting is better.
I like the carpet mats. How are they holding up. Thanks

My Huskies came with the cut out. I have cut a microfibre cloth down to size to just cover over it to keep the Canadian road salt and cr@p off of it. Less then a week and the cloth looked caked in it.

hello all. i'm new to the forum. i replaced my first 2006 outback with a new 2017. love it!!!

anyway, i did some research for mats. my criteria was that i was concerned about looks, fit and durability in that order. since i get up to snow about 4-8 trips per season, my main concern was to handle daily use plus camping and a lot of sand, since i surf. there are a lot of videos on husky, weathertech and maxpider, that cover the same info... so i just had to order some mats to compare and figure out for my own needs.

i figure husky and weathertech are pretty similar in fit and durability. the reason i chose husky is because they have a little pattern over the hump in rear seats. i thought the pattern looks more functional and weathertech's plain finish looked cheap. i also read somewhere that the husky's were a little more rubbery which i like.

as far as driver and passenger goes, i was looking for aesthetics, on top of fit and durability. both the husky and weathertechs are so similar, for me it was about choosing texture and feel. i could have gone either way. what i didn't like was the stamped plastic sheet ends/border. it just looks very raw. that is part of the reason i went with the maxpiders.

THEY ARE AWESOME!!! they look finished on ends and have a 3 layer construction with a supposed "sound" buffer. i probably won't notice, but yes, the new outbacks are very quite compared to older models, so i would like to preserve that. the texture is AMAZING and really compliments the rest of the outback's interior finishes. it looks like it is was designed with the interiors.

BUT, i am a little concerned about durability. they are more rubbery than plastic, compared to husky and weathertech, but they feel pretty sturdy. for me, i'm more concerned with lasting 5+ years to protect the floors and make for easy cleaning AND looking great. i'm pretty confident these will do it, otherwise i would have stuck with all husky or weathertech. honestly, i don't need a lifetime warranty for my floor mats and would rather replace with something 'new' looking in an older car. we'll see. i'll try to post after some sand use. that will be the big test. hope this help some folks
