I just got Huskys for my Chev Silverado. I'm happy with them and was happy to see they're made in the USA. Pretty sure the Weathertecs were a lot more expensive too.

Add me to the list of those that had their Weathertech's start to curl.  My first set I bought for my 2012  and they were great, so when I bought a 2019 I bought Weathertech again.  I don't know what they did, but they look like crap now.  Buying Husky for my next set.

I have weather tech that came in my 2015 f350 and they are curling up in some of the corners which I'm not happy about.

This has been a common complaint on a lot of the newer weathertech liners.  I haven't experienced it but some have.  Would be curious to know if you contacted weathertech customer service, would they replace them.  Many reviews say they are great at customer service.   :dunno:

My WT's did the curl up on driver and passenger sides.  I contact customer service.  They were super helpful with sending a PDF document on how to take them out, flip them upside down, hit them with a heat gun and put some weight on them allowing to cool again. I was pissed but I did it.  It worked until the next run of 90 degree weather and they did it again.  I contacted them again and was given the same PDF document.  Obviously part of the customer service script.  Asked why I paid so much for something to lay flat and now have to retouch every heat spell and was told that's what their product does.  Impressive.  I've had Husky's now for 4 years with no issues and like them better.  I can't remember which version of Husky's I purchased but they are more rubbery than hard plastic.  There are several Youtube videos comparing WT to Husky so you can see which ones are more rubber than hard plastic.  Obviously WT worked for many people so it may just depend.

If you buy weathertech, youíre paying for the marketing. I usually buy husky or the cheap WT knockoffs on Amazon. I will say I am really impressed with the factory floor mats in my 2021 gmc. First truck I havenít immediately replaced them in.

Iíve had husky liners in my last 3 trucks and love them, they donít move there easy to clean and they donít curl. The set I put in my 2019 GMC even looked pretty cool. Absolutely love them.

IMO, Weatheertech was the old standard for full coverage custom fit floor mats.
Husky is better now.
Good tip on the WTs curling up fix. Iím going to try that.

I have the Husky's in my 2019 Silverado.  Perfect fit, don't squeak when wet & durable so far.  I like the coverage of the mat in the back. 

I'm a UW Husky, so it just made sense 8) 8)

My dad has the Husky in his 17' Silverado and they're nice, more bendable?  I've had weathertech before and their also nice, more rigid.  Safe either way, but as a Golden Retriever person, the weathertech owner has goldens and has donated a lot of money towards research that benefits them, as his had cancer if I am correct.  Can't go wrong either way though.

I had Huskyís in my F150, absolutely loved them. Wife bought me a set for the new Ram, equally as pleased with them. Canít stand the weathertechs in her Jeep. I will never buy another set of weathertechs as long as huskyís are around. The fit has been incredible in both sets and they donít move a bit.

Both Husky and Weathertech are made in the USA which is a big  :tup:.

I had Husky in my '04 Dakota for 15 years, ZERO issues. They remained pliable/flexable
I gott the "F-150" ones for my new '19 F-150. They must be made by Weathertech because they are doing what many have already mentioned. Drivers = great, back seat = great, passenger = slip n slide and curling  :bash:

Guess I get to try the heat gun trick. May still need velcro  :dunno: as being flat won't help with the slickness

I have the Husky in my Silverado..  I wasn't going to pay weathertech price again so gave Husky a shot.  For the price difference I am Husky all the way.  Now that I've had them I really like them better then weathertech.  They fit perfect.  Had a little break in period for back ones but I just heated them up and they are perfect.  Also, the weathertechs I've had in the past were too slippery.  Husky seem to have more rubber feel and performance then the plastic weathertech and way easier to get them in and out.

Husky makes a nicer product.
The fit is perfect and the softer, more flexible compound feels better and is quieter.
Husky also made a mold and produced mud guards for my Tacoma when I let them know about the brittle, cheap plastic Toyota was charging over $90.
Nice people in the midwest and making them here.
Good company.

I've heard this, but confused because mine seem so much different.  I bought a full set for my 16 F150 and the front two are thicker than the rear, no way they would curl ever and fit perfect.  Drivers has the latch button things and passenger has the round thing with all the pointy things although I don't think it would even need it.

Rear fits perfect but is thinner.  If you put it in after washing and aren't careful, it can catch under the door forcing the edges up.  You can fix it by pushing it under the closed door and after a day it will be fine.  Once it's in the truck for a day, no problem, just when you put it in.  I wash them in hot water in the driveway so they are soft when I put them back.

Maybe there are different versions out there, who knows.
