WeatherTech vs HuskyLiner mats

I'm looking to change out my mats and was seeing two brands pop up continuously on here: WeatherTech and HuskyLiner

I went on both sites and looked at their mats and they seem comparable. So here's the question:

Has anyone tried either or both and what are your opinions on it. I'll probably get both 1st and 2nd row floor mats for whichever has the better reputation but a HuskyLiner cargo liner for the back.

Thanks in advance guys! =)

I will confound your decision. I have Rugged Ridge in the front and Husky in the rear (seats). While both work, the Rugged Ridge seem to be of much better quality. They are a thicker rubber and just seem much better. Made in USA.

Just my opinion.

The Rugged Ridge also can be found for a very good price if you do some internet digging. The entire 5 piece set can be had for $219 delivered. $143 delivered for the 4 piece set

I have just the Rugged Ridge fronts and they're pretty nice.

I have Weathertech in the front and rear and a Husky cargo liner.

I honestly wouldn't go with Husky, they're better than nothing but thin and tend to warp.

My biggest gripe with Weathertec is that the rear liners don't extend under the front seats as far as I'd like. Otherwise they've been fine.

I've never used Rugged Ridge, but from what I've read of them they seem to be pretty good.

I'll throw in my support for Rugged Ridge. I've got them front and rear. My wife has Weathertech in her RAV4, and while they are pretty nice, they are mostly flat, and when they get a good bit of crappy water on them, it just sloshes all around. With the Rugged Ridge's design, that doesn't happen. Also, the Rugged Ridge mats are made of a thicker and more flexible material.

With the RR up front, I chose the Husky for the rear seats because I looked closely at the online pictures and it "seemed" that they went a tiny bit farther under the front seat. I can't confirm if that is true compared to the other brands.

If you search here, a number of people years ago had problems with the front Husky's warping and fitting poorly. The company was good about replacing them, but one needs to confirm that this problem has been resolved.

Floor liners are one of the very best investments I ever made in a vehicle, especially in messy Michigan.

I'll add that my Husky cargo liner is thin, doesn't always lay as it should, and the edges don't stay up. I looked at Husky's site to see if they've made any changes to the design and it appears they haven't.

If you look at the rugged ridge, it has buttresses that should keep the edges up.

Thanks for all the insight and recommendations guys! Seems like there's an overwhelming support for Rugged Ridge; I'll be looking into a Canadian retailer for these guys. I'll keep y'all updated haha

Knowing what I know now, Rugged Ridge would be my choice. I've always used WeatherTech for my Jeeps, but I have found them to be lacking in quality and there are design flaws indicative of cost-cutting or simple laziness.

I have a full set + cargo of Rugged Ridge. Their only downside has been that the logo emblem popped off a couple of them. I emailed customer support telling them the mat was great, but would be perfect if they mount those logos a more durable way, and they sent me a bag with 4 new logo emblems to install. I dont know if they fixed that minor issue, but at least their customer service is on-point.
