I realize weather tech is the gold standard but I can never bring myself to buy because IMO they make the interior look like some ugly utility truck or something. So I just use the oem carpets but I know they are getting salty and now someone else is posting that the oem mats won't last very long.

Are there any floormats that have all weather protection but have at least an ounce of style or looks so they don't ruin the interior of my nice black leather car?

These are similar to the weathertech style, but have "accord" on them and look decent I think.

Some guys on here said the Honda ones are not good and swear by weathertech. I have not had either yet so I can't give my input.
I bought that Honda set when I got the car in Nov 2012. They are not really good at keeping the salty water from spilling on the carpet. I just bought black digital fit weathertech a few weeks ago and it is very good at containing the salty water. The digital fit is not a bad looking.

I have the OEM in my Civic. I share the same thoughts on the WeatherTech's - looks too truck-like. Others have said the OEM doesnt last but mine are fine after 2.5 years...a little hard to keep looking nice and new, but are wearing just fine.

I am trying to decide as well. I saw someone say Husky makes one - but i would think they would be worse than the WeatherTech if you dont like the look.

I agree the weathertech digital fits do look A LOT better than the "all-weather"

When you say "OEM" you mean the OEM carpet ones right?

My issue is that while I want the carpet to remain relatively clean especially in the winter, I personally think it's not worth it to put in some giant rubber thing with waffles all over it and giant channel grooves to catch the gallons of water and snow etc. Yes, functional to a tee. But ugly right along with it. And then we're protecting the carpet but never ever actually seeing said carpet because it is always under the rubber waffle thingy.

Those look pretty sleek actually. I will have to read up on them. They look like they have a nice "lip" to hold in the water. I don't love the "ARIES 3D" logo but oh well.



In general do all you Weathermat people take them out from April to November? Or leave them in year round?

I ordered the Aries ones. I don't have them yet, should arrive in the next few days. I was going to get Weathertech until I read some reviews on Amazon. There were about 25 1 star reviews which said something like "I ordered mats for a toyota camry and they shipped ones for a Ford truck. It was hard to get ahold of someone at the company, they were very rude and insisted I have to pay for shipping costs of the mats to my home and return shipping as well. blah blah blah, I'll never deal with this company again."

So I decided to spend my money elsewhere.

My Acura RSX oem all weather mats were great and lasted i'd say 5+ years no wear at all. I took out the original carpet and just placed my all season in there all year. In the chicago, we got snow and rain, so i just kept them in there all year no issues. The oem all seasons can't be that bad.

Interesting since Weathertech seems to be the next Apple company, at least around here in Chicago where they're made. They have billboards all over and seem as if they're bottled lightning

weathertech mats are great... Have always used them in both my cars in winter (late Nov-mid March) and also for NJ or S. Carolina beach trips. Other than that, I use the OEM carpet mats

Go with the Huskys. Covers more then the weathertechs and are a lil cheaper.

I can't being myself to buy weather tech because:

* the fit of them in my fathers Escalade is awful.
* the owner is a raging duche

I have used husky in the past with great success.

Well I can vouch that on 9th gens the fit is perfect. However the Husky's do provide a little more coverage than the WT's. Its a tossup really. If someone wanted "stylish" mats there are always the Aries 3D ones.
