Husky vs Weathertech?

Which is best product? I have Weathertech in my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but picking up new 2015 Outback Limited mid-week, so need quick answer.

Weathertech. Don't get the Subaru rubber mats. I had them in my 09 and they where awesome! My new Outback has them and they're OK, but not deep at all so I wasted money on that because I'm now going to have to get another set to keep the melted slush and snow off my carpet.

Love my Huskys. The fit is excellent and they cover more floor than the Weathertech. And, if you do a little shopping around you can get them at a substantial discount over The Weathertech.

TnBoater, do you happen to have any pictures of the Huskys? I have had the weaterhtechs in the past and would like to compare them to the Huskys.

I originally bought the Weathertech. I like the construction & material better. However I have just picked up a set of used Husky's that I will be putting in because the Weathertechs do not cover the entire footrest area nor do they go as far up the firewall. If Weathertech had used Husky's coverage pattern we would have the PERFECT Outback liner.

I have the Husky and they are great. Fit very well. 1st set so no long term experience yet.

Never had a set of WeatherTech so I can't comment on those.

Weathertechs are a very good mat, but they do not cover further up by the pedals area.

Only problem first with Husky, they off-gas an odor for a while, but it goes away.

Pictures attached of what they look like.

Also, like the cover for the fuel door release lever, you can leave it covered for more protection or cut it out.

Weathertechs are a thick plastic, very durable and have always had them in the past. The only reason I did Husky was due to the lack of coverage further up the foot well on the drivers side. If WeatherTech made these a bit further up the well, I'd have those installed.

Husky liners are more of a rubber style liner, stiff rubber just not that hard plastic like WeatherTech.

Just make sure you get liners as the carpet is so **** thin and easy to wear. With only several thousand miles, my carpet was wearing down where I rest my heel, down to the backing. Picture attached of that as well. Had new carpet replaced under warranty even though Subaru was not at first willing, but after I protested that this is the first car to wear like this, they came to their senses.

I have Weathertech in my 3rd gen and Husky in my Jeep. I prefer the Husky for the coverage reasons previously mentioned. Also, Husky mats have nibs on the underside that do a better job of keeping the mats in place.

I dont know the price difference but I would factor that in because I think both of these are great options and have their minor differences.
More coverage on the Huskys but coverage on the WT is pretty darn good. If you get a good deal on either you have a great set of mats. I got my WT from someone selling them second hand and they were in near new shape for about half the price - so that made them just fine for my top choice.
My WTs dont move around at all.
