I have no experience with those at all. I took a look at them and for the price they are selling them for you are better off getting the Huskys or Weathertechs with better coverage and plenty of feedback in which to get a better opinion.

Husky Liners

Weathertech's cover up the entire floor (which I kind of like) but they are crazy expensive for floor mats and do they look ok? The OEM's look nice, but do they do a good enough job of keeping the snow/salt/mud off the carpets? Or if you have any other suggestions for floor mats I am definitely open to it.
I got some Husky's back in Sept since where I'm living for work there's been snow on the ground since about then.

These are my observations:
They are pricy, I paid $130.00. (yes I know they're available cheaper in the city but I could only get them shipped since I live 3 blocks from the middle of nowhere)

The coverage is excellent, I especially like the dead pedal coverage.

The shape has caught all the water, snow, pebbles, leaves etc that I drag in with my shoes.

They aren't very ribbed, so the bottom of your pants may be a bit wet.

They protect very well, I take them out once a week for a rinse and to shake the crud off them and the carpet underneath is immaculate.

Removing them is a pain, you have to be careful to kind of fold it like a taco, then slowly take them out. The shape is awkward to remove and they're not very flexible. If you're not careful or screw up you could end up dumping water on your carpet. If you get them I find the best thing to do is remove most of the standing water and junk first (use my shopvac) then back the drivers seat up and pull them out slowly

Anyone have experience with the WeatherTech floor mats (not digital fit liners)? http://www.weathertech.com/ford/2013...s-all-weather/
From the pic they have, it looks like they have good dead pedal coverage, but not as good behind the active pedals. They are significantly less expensive than the liners.

Yes. I have these. I originally had the OEM all weather, but bought these to get the dead pedal coverage. I have had weathertech mats in quite a few cars and they are always good quality. I wish they went further up behind the pedals, but I assume they are worried about pedal interference.

I had a set of Husky liners in my Escape its whole life around 7 years. They held up great to over 100k miles of driving. Scratched up but never ripped. Great product. I just ordered them for my focus and have them in my wifes 09 mariner as well.

only sucky thing about the husky liners is the longer edges tend to warp/bow in and let dirt get in the pocket created between the outside of the mat and the carpeting. Small pocket but as we know dirt finds its way in there nonetheless. Still a good fit and undercuts the weathertechs
