WeatherTech vs Husky Liners for Suburban

Does anybody have good or bad experiences with either of these? I've had Husky in the past on work trucks, but didn't know of any other options back then.

I'm also specifically wondering about coverage in the "walk-through" area between the 2nd row bucket seats. I can tell that the WeatherTechs cover that area, but can't tell with the Husky Liners.

Also, does anybody have experience with the newer X-act Contour Husky? It seems like a more rubbery version of the WeatherBeater, but I can't find much info.

Other recommendations are welcome as well.

Thanks for any info...

I use WeatherTech in my truck. I've been very happy with them.

Cant give you any feedback on Suburban mats

But I have experienced both WT & Husky in a variety of GM, Toyota, and Honda vehicles.

I will choose WT every time over the Husky, and I will put WTs in every vehicle I own from here out.

The WTs are just better fitting, thicker, and wear longer.

The Huskys I had were ok, but they tended to slide around a little and warped somewhat to prevent good fitting.

Also, cleaning the diamond tread pattern on the Huskys were a PITA compared to the smoother design of the WTs.

Although not specifically Suburban related, I have the WT's in the front/back seats of my Tundra. My parents have them in the front/back seats of their vehicles and all fit and work well.

Have a Weather Tech for the cargo area of a Pathfinder. It's a good product.

Are the WT more rigid than the husky? It seems that way. If so, are they more slippery? Also, I would like a little tack to the cargo mat for less shifting. I know husky liners aren't very tacky from experience, but I don't want any less than that for sure.

I bought the Weathertech mats for our '12 Escape and they are fantastic. They are overpriced but I think you'd be hard pressed to get a better fit and they're one of those things you only have to buy once.

Do you think they have some decent grip to them?

I have vehicles with both husky and weather tech. In the future it will only be weather tech. The husky's warp over time and shift around. Because the weather techs fit more exact and are slightly more rigid, they don't. Are the weather tech's more slippery? Not really. Both are about the same. Don't make the mistake of letting the kids armor all either one of them though when cleaning. You'll slip and slide for weeks.

I've just about decided on wt. one big reason is for the definite "between the seats" coverage of the 2nd row buckets. Other reason is more rigidity with no loss in grip. Thanks for all of your input.

I had Huskies in my 2010 FX4. Wife had Weather Tech
in he 2010 awd Edge. My Huskies are now in my shop and
I have Weather Tech in my FX4. Huskies would stain, WT's
wouldn't. The Huskies are slick and the rubber started to
get little hairline spider web cracks. WT are the way to go.
