    What are the best fit and quality all weather mats for the Prius?
    Straight from Toyota or WeatherTech?

    The Weathertech Digital Fit mats provide the best protection and fit for the passenger area. I like the rubber Toyota mats for the cargo area as it's easy to access the lower cargo area. Most Weathertech rear mats I've seen are one-piece - good for messes but not access.

    I just got a set of WeatherTech Liners for my Prius c and I'm very pleased with them. They're a perfect fit and look like they will catch all the winter rain and snow.

    The best deal I could find for the c was at Cabela's, $99.99 delivered. They list them under their own brand name of TrailGear, but the package came direct from WeatherTech about a week after I placed the order.

    Search Google for a code for free shipping, otherwise it's $12.95.

    The Husky liners provide the best protection from excessive water. I prefer the WeatherTech liner look.

    I've got the weathertech front digital fits and the trunk liner. Very happy with them so far and looking forward to see ing how the mats (trays more like!) handle our snow this winter.

    I tested how much water they could hold before leaking through the hold downs. It took about half a"red beer cup". Judgeless has had bad experiences with these mats in snowy weather. Here are a couple pics of my test.

    Good test, and I'm not surprised by the leak around the hold downs. I suppose you could silicon caulk that area - wouldn't take much, and it could probably be peeled off if you needed to remove the liners.

    Aye. The Husky liners are a lot deeper though. If you deal with lots of snow and wear deep treaded boots then I wouldn't trust WeatherTech liners. For just about every other situation I think the WeatherTech liners are great. That is why I bought another set after I sold my 2005.

    I'm thinking about the suburban snow we get on Long Island, along with the grit on the roads, and I think the WeatherTechs will do fine with most of it. We had one storm last year that was two feet, but more often it's a few inches that turns to slush.

    You'll be fine then. I track mud in from the fields and water from puddles and never had a problem.

    +1 for the Husky liners.

    I bought both front/rear and cargo mats from them and 100% satisfied.

    I just installed some husky liners last weekend. I am also more than pleased!
