I live near Seattle, and most of the time we have a warm temperate winter. My Outback Sport came with the all-weather package too, and when I bought the car I didn't think much of it. But I park my car outside, not under a carport or in a garage. So when I come out in the morning it is all iced over. The all-weather package really does a great job to defrost the mirrors and heat up the windshield wiper blade rubber so I can see more quickly. And the heated seats! Often when it's super cold out and I drive off from my parking space, I can turn the heated seats on and instantly feel warm, vs. having to wait for the engine to heat up to get any heat, which usually takes a couple minutes of driving. So yes, I think it's worth the extra cost, especially in Upstate New York! If you lived in Southern California I'd say no, don't get it.
