WeatherTech Floor Mats

Just got these bad boys in the mail and they were a perfect fit. Maybe a 1/4 inch off in a small area on the passenger side but otherwise couldnít be happier. Living in a new construction area these were a must to keep my carpets looking like new. Having the rear mats wrap over the centre hump is amazing. No more dirt from people using it as a foot rest. Next addition will be some Gorilla Mud Flaps. Canít wait for some fun in the snow!

I'm a bit 'meh' on those we got for the Outback 2-3 years back. If they're "laser-fit", then the laser lens needed cleaning. Big gaps on the sides of the driver's mat, and the passenger mat slides forward and back a good 4 inches - along with the big side gaps.

On the plus side, the sloppy fit means they're easy to remove for cleaning.

The rear piece fit nice, tho.

More thorough discussion here comparing Weathertech to Huskyliner.

14+ Forester - Weathertech vs Husky liners

I am very happy with the fit, finish, and durability of my Weathertech LINERS.

You should probably clarify that you have the liners as well, considering you mentioned the hump being covered.

WT also makes all-weather rubber mats, just like the OEM all-weather mats, and they are lackluster, discussed here: Weathertec Floor Mats Now Available for '14 Forester

Check my journal link below, page 8 I believe, so you can see fitment of the WeatherTech FloorLiners on the SG models. FYI: They do not go over the rear hump.

Thanks GeoJosh, you are right they are the floor liners! My bad. One thing I did notice today was that the liner got pretty slick after brining in some snow and mud on my boots... That's right snow in October! Gotta love Canada.

I guess I should correct my statement: I have the liners, not the mats, and the pair in front fit like crap.

Oh, and I have a certain pair of shoes that can't be worn when driving the car because the tread blocks catch on the forward edge of the ill-fitting liner when I press in the clutch.

Maybe I can come up with stick-on Velcro to hold the edges properly in place.

I ordered and received yesterday the Husky liners. I think the Weathertech material is a little nicer (softer?) but am happy with the Husky coverage and very snug fit. I think some of the complaints about the Husky product arriving scuffed are because of the nibs that are rubbing against the surface. Mine was not bad and after cleaning they looked okay. By spring I'll see how the Husky holds up compared to the other cars Weathertech's. Last year was the first winter on the Weathertech liners and feel they are a little more scuffed than I expected.

I am calling in my order this week for the front Huskies. I like the better coverage.
Well I never called in the order. And now my Wife has passed away, so I really do not feel like doing much of anything, pretty much lost the will to go on.

Anyone try the wheathertech cargo liner? I want a cover that goes into the side pockets under the bag hook. I have the stock liner but it moves all over the place and leaves out that little side space.

Weathertech Floor LINERS for 2014 Foresters Available

I posted some pics of mine in that thread. I really like it, and appreciate the side extensions. Worth the money, in my opinion.

Like you I have owned both Weathertech and Husky liners. The Husky liners scuffed up more than the Weathertech for me. For what they cost you would think both would be made of thicker material.

It looks like you can get the Husky Liners cheaper than the Weathertech Liners - did you have any buyer's remorse with either? I'm looking to protect the car from kids and soccer cleats, spills and messes (and, let's be honest, from my own clumsiness!), and am on the fence between the two.

No buyers remorse with either. The Weathertech's are a little nicer but dont cover as well in the Forester. You should be happy with either.
